Default New Hookah.. suggestions?

Hello all, it's been quite some time since I've posted on hookahpro and I have been out of the hookah-loop for a few months now. I want to purchase a new hookah and some new flavors so if anyone could give me some suggestions as to which hookah I should consider and flavors and brands I should look into as well please do so. Thanks!

I prefer Khalil Mamoon hookahs if you want a quality rig.

As for shisha....

I highly recommend nakhla....mizo peach, mandarin, marguerita, mizo grape

and a few HH/HF flavors ... orange, rich and smooth, seven spice

all i ve really been smoking lately ^_-

In my humble opinion, the KM (Khalil Mamoon) is the best buy. MYAs are great too, but I think they're too expensive and they don't have a great selection for the size I like (my KM is 36"). **********.com and gothookahs.com are two sources I prefer.

As for shisha, the only tobacco consistent enough for me to reccomend comfortably is Tangiers. It is excellent quality with great flavors and a great buzz. Make sure you know how to pack it right, though. As for which flavor to get, I have enjoyed every Tangiers that I have tried, except the kashmir flavors.

Hope I helped.

I would say go for a Nour, or an AF syrian (made by nour) they are solid rigs that will smoke well and look great.

As for flavors, I just reviewed some HH Irish Cream that was delicious, and of course SB blue mist is always good

haha yeah I was looking more into KM. I just don't know which one to get, preferably one with an ice chamber as I've seen on thehookah.com a Khalil Mamoon Ice 31" for $109.00 which seems pretty reasonable.

haha yeah I'm going to decide hopefully within the next week or so which one I should get. If I do get that KM, I'll see if I could make a review video for it to show you how it performs. Thanks for the help!

the ice chamber is just for looks IMO. you really won't be able to discern the difference between ice in the base or in the chamber, or both for that matter.

I've never really tried putting ice in the base. I just wanted to try and cool the smoke and see if there is a difference and if it actually works. Does it matter if you have a large base?

KM certainly is the better priced hookah and of good quality. But in my opinion I'd get a Mya if you have the extra money because I have never seen a messed up Mya. None-the-less a quality hookah is a quality hookah and it's all about if you take care of your rig

yeah my first hookah I didn't know much and just bought some crappy one and within 3-4 months it was a wreck. Plus I would rinse it and clean each part individually, but it had gotten flavour stained and everything tasted horrible. Now I'm trying to find a good quality one I could baby and not have to pay everytime I want to go smoke at these horrible hookah lounges

apparently the ice chambers rust on those things...
i can't find the particular reviews, but i do remember that it was a prominent issue with the people that purchased it.
