There isn't one best hookah out there, but some of the better ones are made by Khalil Mamoun (KM) and Magdy Zidan(MZ). Also, Mya has got some decent reviews too. There is something to be said about Syrian Hookahs too. I know of few people on here have the 26" Syrian Nours and have good things to say.
I suggest reading through the review section here and then checkin out www.*************.com
. John @ CH provides great customer service. I'm sure if you have any question's he can answer them for you if you PM him. I suggest watching some of his youtube videos and would push you to consider buying some of his quick light coals. They work great and are easy to manage.
