Default Super Nova (3 hose) vs The Queen (4 hose) which one??

Hey everyone im a new member and ive been a hookah smoker for only 5 months now and i gotta say its the shit. Im already in the market for a new one and i found myself in a spot where i dont know what i should do...I found a 3 hosed hookah called the Super Nova for $144.95 and a 4 hosed hookah called The Queen for $149.00. They are both rotating hookahs and being sold on different sites and idk if either is over priced or if its even good. They both come with a lot of cool stuff. But im afraid that The Queen hookah is all show because it looks really nice compared to the super nova. I also plan on buying extra accessories like a heba diffuser and a Phunnel hookah bowl for which ever hookah i buy. here are the sites: http://www.thehookah.com/store/produ...cat=256&page=1
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...&idproduct=137
thanks for readin all that

If these are your only choices...I'd say go with that Super Nova one.

The Queen is a non-brand Chinese hookah and non-brand chinese hookahs are complete shite. Stay away!

If you're dead set on a multihose rog, for only a few bucks more you can get a nice KM.

theres really no need for a rotator if you have more than 1 hose. its just an extra part to worry about.

One: unless you smoke with others often, stay with a single or 2 hoser. If the rig doesn't have a perfect Auto-seal system, you'll be pluging extra ports for solo (or smaller groups).

Two: rotators can be nice, but stories abound with issues of seals and such failing and leaking. Plus they can be tip-prone unless the "rotation" is perfectly smooth, which is rarely the case. The bearings seem to be rust prone.

As others have stated, personally I would pop for a 2 hose KM if you are hard-set on a multiple hose rig. But what ever way you head, good luck on your purchase.

rotators are too much money, they're over rated, and the auto-seal sucks on them, worse than any other hookah. go for a 2 hose km with no auto-seal. it's actually cheaper. and if you really want it to rotate so bad, then go to your local hardware store and buy 2 pieces of oak plywood, and a screw-in set of ball bearings. put together, paint/cut as necessary.

Personally I have also found that a rotating hookah isn't necessary if you have 2 or more hoses. I have a 3 hose KM hookah, and it's pretty good, but I do hate that there is no auto-seal on it.
I only smoke in groups, so 1 hose won't cut it, and I don't like that everyone has to be careful about covering the plug all the time, it's such a hassle! My old generic hookah had the auto-seal ball bearings, and I am strongly considering going back to that one.
I know I will come under fire for saying that, but without the ball bearings in the stem, any hookah loses most of its value for me, and isn't worth all the money.

Bottom line: don't worry about getting a rotating one, and make sure it has auto-seal!
As a sidenote, I've found that 3 hoses is plenty, even for large groups. People don't mind passing them around if needed, and there's less clutter.

I have a four hose hookah myself and because of how many hose ports it has, there's never a need to rotate the hookah (granted the most I normally smoke with are three people including myself). It came with screw on plugs so I can plug the unused ports and turn one into a purge valve, I could even turn it into a one hose if I wanted. Plus, a lot of people complain about them having leaking and stability issues. For my money, I say stay away, the rotation is pointless if you're looking for multiple hoses, but it's your money so buy what you like. Either way, if you get a multi-hose, invest in some hose plugs (screw on or not) and a screw on purge valve for those times when you aren't using all the ports, maybe some auto-seal ports for those friends that you know wont thumb their hoses. All these port plugs are very cheap so if your hookah doesn't come with them for some reason, it wont run you too much more money.

Different strokes for different folks, if that's what works for you then that's all that matters, no one has any right to criticize.

I'd get a quad hose KM if you are looking for a ton of hoses and call it a day. Thing will smoke like a champ and isn't some chinese rig that will rust / break on you within a year.

You won't need to rotate 4 hoses because they are all at optimal angles for smokability... even if you have 10+ people, the hoses don't need to go that far ... making rotation not extremely useful.

thing ive noticed with rotating hookahs is if one person wants to pass one hose but others arent so willing to rotate it doesnt go well.

loll wow this thread came back to life. well now thats its up agian i am thinking about getting a multi hosed hookah my old rotating hookah broke a long time ago and i moved on to better things such as a few single kms that are in my room. the only multi hose i have now is a mya saray with a hose adapter. which i use to bring to the beach and stuff. now im looking for a larger one to use when i have a lot of ppl over. thinkin about a KM but they dont have auto seals which i would rather have. im feelin like the Mya Obelisk (4 hose) Hookah or a Mya Obelisk (3 hose) Hookah. i could be wrong with the auto seal do they harmfully affect smoking in any way?

yea, you will hear the argument that auto seal will restrict the air flow, especially if the ball bearing gets stuck, which apparently can happen (it hasn't with mine, but i do wash everything a lot, so it always works smoothly)
