I'd say if you really want a good hookah, just buy a name brand from ******* Hookah like KM or MZ. Get a nice washable hose like the Razan and a clay bowl. It's much better than dealing with headaches from trying to suck air from cheap chinese hookahs you buy from the mall.
I'm gonna disagree on this abit.Well, alot. A quality narghille is essential to a quality smoke. I use a $4 clay egyptian bowl(most of the time) and a standard syrian hose and I promise you, they would not perform as well as they do if I was not smoking from a top shelf Syrian shisha. That's not to say there aren't decent low end rigs availiable. but if your serious about maximizing you smoking experience, than a good rig is a must.Just my opnion, of course.
