Default Small Hookah

I think about buy a new hookah, one of those small sized, perfect for travel but daily usages. Anyone have them and what is their advantages and disadvantages?

ADVANTAGES:

DISADVANTAGES:

- Too small to provide adequate clearance between the water and hose port
- Crappy materials will rust out in very short order
- Small, narrow, restricted hose can't be replaced
- Bad design and construction of bowl

My comments above apply even more to the edited picture than they did to the original picture. Don't waste your money.

Many of us have Khalil Mamoun Mini Beasts. Farida minis are another good option.

Options in steel include the Magdy Zidan Gemini, Khalil Mamoun Mini Amer, or Megahed Luxor.

The Furat that H-S gives away has a plated common chamber and a trumpet port, but smokes surprisingly well for what it is. It's very small.

Thanks man! I am looking for a smaller size, I don't think my lungs can handle those, they seem like the size of my medium clay galyan, which trouble me at times, with the energy to "pull". I also prefer it is easier to hold in hand and move around while I smoke.

In all seriousness, hookah is best enjoyed stationary. " moving around" with lit coals is asking for a trip to the ER. Just had a workmens comp claim at the lounge with which im affiliated. New girl decided to carry a hookah Complete with lit coals to a table and stumbled. She recieved second and third degree burns.

Listen To OSV. You'll not get sounder advice in this matter.

Good luck!

None of the pipes OSV recommended will yield a difficult draw. If set up properly, they should all be as effortless as breathing.

Lets agree to disagree. They are an especially poor choice for someone who has already voiced concerns about restricted draw.

I assume what you're looking for is a hookah with a wide draw.

What are you currently using right now?

I'd recommend an Egyptian hookah (Megahed, Farida, Magdy Zidan, Khalil Mamoon) or a Regal (I know I know I'm a Regal fanboy, but they're just so beautiful!).

I need to move the hookah around easily "without coals on" because I am constantly on the move. It has to be light weight like MY laptops and other gadget, man!

I appreciate all respond but I want a recommendation from a pro in this specific feature "easy of draw".

What do you mean by "wide draw'? I am only a newbie hookah user.
My current hookah is Persian galyan's small and medium sized, clay vase and bowl, wooden stem and hose/stem.
I plan to purchase a new hookah that easy up my draws, I have trouble with any hookah more than 3' long. I am using ALAJAMY two apple with mint tobacco generally speaking and maybe my lungs are small, idk what is the problem.

Yeah your issue is definitely draw. Persian hookahs are incredibly restricted, that with an Egyptian bowl and I assume what's happening is that you're coughing at some point. A wide draw would definitely help with that. Persian hookahs aren't really meant for modern tobaaccos anyway.

The draw is simple. It's how open the hose opening is in the chamber. The wider the opening, the draw's more effortless, or closer to breathing. The smaller the opening, the more restrictive it is, like sucking on a straw.

No, I do not cough at all, the amount of cloud, is less than most.
The Persian hookah is reasonable but I desire to improve more, the price is much higher for an amateur smoker. I have a custom made shisha bowl for this set up, the hose is made of timber, the opening is wide actually.

A friend of mine bought this "portable" hookah, from a local hookah shop for LARPing it works fairly well and it uses a wind cover so the coals do not fall off. not the best thing but if you want to walk around and smoke this is the solution.

Then either A) there's a major language barrier, or B) I don't know what you want. You say you're looking for a hookah that doesn't require much "energy to pull" (something with a wider draw). OSV and I both pointed out hookahs that will solve that issue. As for smoke production, that's all about heat management and the tobacco you're using.

Never mind, I have taken your recommendation and will start to look for a hookah. I am new and starting to get frustrated which affect my communication.
