They are easier to set up then larger hookahs, and to carry around, but lack the abilities of a full Traditional (Egyptian, Syrian) setup. For you, a student, who studies quite a bit, and will be carrying this thing around, i would reccomend a QT. You don't REALLY need Nammors or Razans, it's a matter of preference, and you cans also buy 4 nice looking long handle hoses from Nazarhookah for the price of 1 Razan/Nammor, so i don't think hoses should be a problem as you can switch them out. I also would tell you to get a QT because college students tend to not know the etiquette of smoking hookah, and it's almost pointless to even try to teach most of them.

A QT is most definitely going to fit your needs. Bases are easily replaced, if broken. A Phunnel can be used on it. It can be converted into 2 hoses. It's very portable. It's very durable.

A heba will not fit on a QT unfortunately, but they are mostly useless.
Would putting a sander bit attached to a drill press be able to smooth out the inside of the stem well enough do you think?

Also, I'll probably only be transporting the hookah once maybe twice a week. Do you think that I should just go ahead and buy a KM? Having never owned a hookah, I don't really know how much of a hassle it is to move/transport them.
