Re: new hookah help, 2 hose
Don't go with a multihose, period. Number one, they don't look traditional. They look very americanized. Number two, like matt said, people do not remember to plug their hose...and even when they do, it is such a ridiculous hassle to have to sit with your thumb on the end of the hose constantly.
I love the communal connection that comes with passing around a hose, too. Makes me feel connected to the ones I'm smoking with.
