Re: ok need help picking
Gotta agree with the Captain here. Don't waste your money.
Consider this: Your pipe is a one time investment. You're going to spend a lot more money over time on tobacco and coals. You can buy a hookah now for cheap, another cheap one in 6 months or a year when it breaks or rusts over (Sometimes even sooner) and by then you've spent enough to buy a KM.
Consider that if you spend a little extra now, you'll get a pipe that not only will smoke better and be more enjoyable, it will also last you the rest of your life, with proper care.
Find a good vendor like Hookah John or Hookahstore, and use a discount code, and you can probably find a damn nice pipe for under $100.
Spending as little as you can on a hookah is a road that only leads to disappointment and wasted money. I know because I've done it.
