Re: New guy with questions...
With under a $150 budget, you can find A LOT of great Khalil Mamoons. I suggest getting that. For shisha, accessories, coals, hookah, ect, since you do live in Georgia, I suggest going to Saharasmoke.com or hookahhookah.com as they have warehouses in Georgia and it would get to you VERY quickly with some cheap shipping fees.
Hoses: Razan or Nammor. They are washable and very durable.
Bowl: Vortex bowl, definitely.
Reputable Places: **********.com, SaharaSmoke,com, HookahHookah.com, Maharajahookah.com.
