Default Ideas for second Hookah

Ok i'm looking to get my second hookah and price isn't a huge thing. i would like to keep it under 200 thou. I currently have a econo-mya Gelato. I like it a lot smokes great but its small and it would be nice to get something bigger when smoking with friends. I can't decide what brand to go with. Any help would be great.
Thx Guys and Gals

Oh i saw this one and like it but idk what it is. Anyone know?

I believe that is a km dual tone with a bohemian vase and a km hose with a tang phunnel bowl
(someone correct me if I am wrong)

But go with km and wait a week or two to see what kms hookah company gets

get another mya (my pref) or MZ (just another option)... and of course Syrian Brass(because photolinger isnt on right now)! lol...and that pic looks like a KM as said... but honestly go with what looks best to you. And $200 will get you tobacco, add-on goodies (bowls, hoses etc) and a nice hookah.

personally when i buy another large rig i will go towards a KM or a Mya. i like that the mya stem breaks down but the hollow space in the stem does get a little annoying when im trying to get it really clean. probably when it comes down to it the KM would by my choice for a large rig, that being said i have never used a KM so it would be a bit of a dive in for me

I have heard that the brass Syrians smoke well with a new hose such as a Razan

I wonder what happened to the KM base that should have come with that hookah.

how did you know?

Of course I'd say syrian brass man. Brass is durable, attractive, and stays cooler longer.

If you want a KM, go w/ a brass KM, harder to find, but worth the searching.

Either way, $200 max will get you a good deal of shisha, coals, a phunnel bowl and a razan. I see you're a hookah noobie, make sure to read up on the vendor discount codes you get access to here at HP, good luck with your purchase!
btw, my preference is KM

mya is pretty much the top chinese producer of hookahs.
KM is the most trusted egyptian brand.

myas do not purge well, and they have bottle necks in the stems, the ends may be big, but the parts where they screw together tend to be small. the stems feel cheaper than KM stems, although the higher end myas are heavier, they still are cheap on the inside. they are just highly decortated regular mya stems, its like a body kit really.

bottom line, a km purges better and smokes better than a mya, those hoses are better on a KM.

mya's just feel cheap when you hold it next to a km...that being said, you can say that about a km and some nice brass hookahs made in a particular country east of lebanon, west of iraq, and north of jordan.

I was looking at this rig http://www.thehookah.com/nour-karako...h-28-inch.html. Looks nice, and it wont break your budget. I would add a caravan washable hose with that too

i didn't realize that mya was machine manufactured. The one thing i really don't like about the very first hookah i got was the hoses are small.

Does anyone know anything about this one i like this alot.

KM multihoses are pretty new from what ive gathered
you can always buy a new hose (nammor or razan are probably the best)
KM hoses are nice but they arent washable
and it only comes with one

pretty much like what has been said already with the myas being machine made but i would argue that being machine made does not lead it to being inferior, it produces an extremely consistent product, i dont own a KM so i cannot comment on their quality personally but from others experiences they are quality rigs as well.

honestly the 2 down falls of myas IMHO are the purge quality (or lack there of) and the fact that the stem is harder to clean. how ever the stems are very durable since they are solid brass (even my mya min acrylic has a brass stem) there are a few how ever that are aluminum but personally i dont see a down fall in AL.

as to the bottle neck in myas, some have it and others dont so much, the minis have a slight bottle neck but it is not noticeable even with a nammor hose (remember when air passes through a smaller orifice it just speeds up and increases pressure to do so, if you were passing water through it you would probably notice it but not with air)

for a rig that you may or will transport a mya fits that bill much easier since all of the break down where as the KMs are solid pieces.

to the OP, since you have a mya already (and a medium size one at that) the only advantage you will have is the interchangeability of some parts (like the hose ports and purge valves along with the down stems if you want to adjust the length of them) but honestly its not a huge deal.

i would honestly probably go with the KM for the simple fact that you have a mya so you have a good travel rig and the KM will be a good rig and work well for a stay at home smoke

So i've narrowed it down to these two
-mya-
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1732
-khalil-mamoon-
http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...r-blue-41.html

I will be getting a Nammor Hookah Hose and Phunnel Hookah Bowl with either of the hookahs.

I guess im just looking to get the best smoke for my money.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Any one have recommendations on coals?(natural seem the best bang for my buck)

i would probably go with the KM out of those 2 but i would be weary of it being so tall compared to the base, i know they are good rigs and all but i would worry it would tip over

i like the mya base style but not big on that stem (really im not that big on either of those stems personally, just dont like the insert thing)
