I found that for a first time hookah, H-S tends to be PRETTY good as far as value. They have a little higher price on their hookahs, but they also come with the most freebies, with the Hookahpro25 code you get another 15% off, which cuts your costs a little bit. H-S shipping prices are 8-12 bucks depending on what you get, my Nammor Cleopatra cost me 11 to ship I think, a QT should cost less.
Any of the HookahPro vendors are great, because they give us deals and are all very trustworthy
Can't go wrong with any of them!
