Re: Is this a good choice?
Definitely agree on one hose, and I have 2 Sahara smoke hookahs, a persian stem and stainless like this, the stainless is definitely what to go for. They come apart in... probably 4 pieces for one that size and makes cleaning the hookah itself very easy. I'm personally not a huge fan of the bell vase, but that is only a matter of preference, so no biggy there. I'd say just about anything you get from SS (provided it's not a genie (the tiny ones), which doesn't seem to be what you are interesting in anyways) would be a fine choice, but unless you have say 10+ people smoking with you on a regular basis I wouldn't go with 3 hoses. I have as many as 8 people over at a time, and unless I have 6 or more, I don't need to bring out my second hookah.
Be sure to check out Sambooka's discount code thread, I think I saw something about 15% off there.
