Re: New guy with questions...
I haven't smoked out of one personally, but I think the free hookah that Hookah-Shisha does for orders over $100 could be a good option for a starter pipe. I have seen some reviews on it are pretty favorable, but anyone with experience with it should know.
Buy a new bowl, good hose, good coals, and a bunch of different 50g's of different brands. Basically get a bunch of supplies and upgrades, and have a hookah to boot. I think they one they give is a Mya Acrylic.
Any opinions on this strategy?
