steel: only silver in color ....

i think some of the "gunmetal" finish hookahs are steal

and i think sahara hookahs now come in gold and gunmetal finishes and their hookahs are steel? or some crap alloy? maybe...idk

idk i m going to bed, good post.

That is a fantastic guide. But one thing that might be useful under the other considerations, is bowls. Yes, most of the bowls are purchased as an aftermarket product, but I personally would take this into account if i wanted a hookah and didnt have enough to buy a bowl. Like the standard KM/egyptian bowls, or mya bowls and how shallow they are. My friend bought a cheap chinese hookah and hit bowl was super shallow. I brought my standard egyptian over and he said that it was the best session he has ever had with it.

common chambers come in open and closed (plate at the bottom so you cant clean inside).

also brass cores will eventually affect flavor if you scrubbed / tarnish removed from the inside.

Good job photolinger, Excellent.

I have one comment, MYA Saray was clasified under Chinese hookahs, I know it is made in China but there is a huge difference between them and other cheap Chinese hookahs. May be you can classify MYA as a Turkish hookah, I don't know it is up to you.

Again, amazing thread.

I was just reading about the chinese part... overall the post is awesome... but a thing on mya... all of my myas weight more than my km... and some match the weight of my nour. Mya is chinese theres no question about that but maybe separate into two paragraphs the difference between shit chinese and mya. And def. mention different bowl styles. I would also like to see mentioned details about the bowls... the difference between a standard egyption bowl vs a mya style bowl... Tangiers phunnel vs a chinese phunnel because they are not the same lol... things like that lol.

A couple awkward sentences and mistakes, if you're interested in correcting them...

Egyptian
Quote:
Most of these hookahs will steel hookahs
Chinese
Quote:
They are much lighter and feel much cheaper to hold
Perhaps: ...and feel cheaper in the hand

Quote:
The good thing about these hookahs is that they tend to me significantly cheaper and available in many different styles
Bambino / QT
Quote:
which to some are considered something to replace quickly
... They are sold with Mya hoses which people often replace with a more desirable hose.

MZ
Quote:
They do however, tend to be more inexpensive
...They do however, tend to be less expensive.

KM
Quote:
they come with a great and usually attractive hose
...they come with an attractive hose with a good draw that many people prefer.

Sahara
Quote:
hey tend to cost almost if not as much as their rivals
Hoses
Quote:
Other hoses are not washable and will rust
...Other hoses are not washable and will rust when washed

Rotation
Quote:
There are multiple hose rotators which are even more less desired, the more hoses, the less of an effect for rotation, and the worse of a smoking experience
This section is a little awkward to read.
...Some hookahs are available with rotators which allow the hookah to swivel when passing the hose. It is not a popular feature as there is rarely a problem when passing the hose. In addition there are separate rotators available, however they are for the most part, unnecessary.

Common chamber
Quote:
These hookahs, however, tend to be more inexpensive than others
...These hookahs, however, tend to be less expensive

Awesome post. Very well put together.

Yes, I have been long awaiting a stickied thread like this. These questions are asked more than once daily, it will keep the threads with all the same questions from popping up...hopefully. great job.
