Re: How often do you buy hookahs?
I've bought three hookahs, each an improvement over the other.
The first was a shitty chinese one but I thought it was awesome because I was the first in my group of friends to actually own one. The second was a generic 26" Egyptian off of H-S, and that definitely produced a good amount of smoke and really entertained people. My final purchase was a KM. I decided to get one because its the best brand in the industry (or one of the best brands depending on who you talk to) and I got washable hoses and a phunnel. I figured once I get something really really nice, I won't need any major upgrades for a while.
KM Americana w/ Illusion Base 34"
KM Quad Metal 2011 w/ Clear Jumbo (Gold Trim) 32"
KM Kamanja w/ Bohemian Base (Gold Trim) 26"
