Default Khalil Mamoon vs Magdy Zidan

I'm looking to add another hookah to my collection. The three I already own are MYA's and so I'm looking for something different. The two I'm looking at are a 31" KM and a 28" MZ and I'm unsure which one to go with. Take into account that I personally have an eye for the details(i.e. I'm one to pick out small imperfections in things.). Which one of these two makers am I going to get a higher quality pipe from as far as weld marks, small scratches/dents, straightness of shaft, overall craftmanship, etc... Your input will be greatly appreciated.

No I do not own any of either of these brands yet. I do undstand that both of these are handmade, which is part of their charm, I guess what I really want to know is how do the two brands stack up to one another?

If you're going to go OCD over small imperfections, don't go with a handmade rig, stick with the mass-produced, machine made chinese hookahs.

You wont get to much MZ props on here... But they smoke really nice and I prefer the look of the stems and bases over KM. JUST my opinion. You will need to ugrade the hose foresure unless your ordering one from thehookah

yeah, there's disclaimers everywhere that say "this was not made with a machine. you may see weld marks, brush strokes, and other imperfections".

i swear i didnt tell him to say that about a nour.
but if you want a handmade hookah consider brass as well.

just so you know MZ's here are about as underrated as syrian brass. most people here will die over a KM, but there are hookahs out there that are better. MZ makes a damn good hookah and dont let anyone make you think otherwise.

I was just wondering about MZ. Thank gosh I don't have to ask about it. I see a new "which one should I buy" thread once a day. that's alright though, at least you're trying to do reasearch on your stuff. I didn't and ended up with a hookah that ghosts a lot and the bowl that came with it can't hold much and always burns. I might go for the MZ.

I have a rotating MZ. I can only compare it to crappy chinese hookahs some of my friends have and it obviously puts them to shame. Nice wide stem, i get a good pull and there's no imperfections that affect performance. Plus its beautiful and its usually the first rotating hookah most people have seen.

I have two MZ's and I love them to death. They look sexy, smoke great, and best of all, cheap. Weld marks are cleaner on the MZ than my KM, and they have a brighter shine that is better quality.

I say go MZ

MZ's just don't feel like good hookahs. I at least want that in a rig.

to be fair, a good hookah can only feel like one to me if its brass, but as for smokeability and comparison to other top hookahs, its up there
