Default Help me decide on my next hookah

So right now I have a Generic 3-hose Hookah from HookahHookah.com I bought it about a year ago and since then have smoked out of many different pipes and found mine to be one of the less enjoyable ones (Tough to draw from, auto-seal constantly gets stuck...it's a mess). Anyway, now with my birthday approaching (Turning 20) I have decided it's time to treat myself to something nice, A new Hookah. (Shh...don't tell April she's being replaced).

Anyway here's what I'm looking for and maybe you all could throw some suggestions up for me
1.Price: ~$150
2.Hoses: 1 but preferably expandable to at least 2
3.Height: not a Shortie but it doesn't need to be super-tall

So far I've looked at the Mya Frost, the KM 38' 3-hose pear (seen on thehookah.com, sorry the hotlink wont work), and the KM"omdah", The Governor 30inch.

what do you all think?

I would most definitely recommend not adding an extra hose to a Syrian/Egyptian hookah - terrible pull and weak purge.

The hookah I think you should get is an Al Fakher Syrian from this site:
http://www.alfakheronline.com/Item_Hookahs.htm
Definitely the Heavy version.

Over-all, it's the best quality available in any rig on the American market. They are a great rice for such a great pipe, and shipping is cheap.

There are other that will also recommend this pipe from experience. It's heavy, has great welds, a nice looking base, and a perfect stem design.

Basically what you will tend to get the most of is KM hookahs (Khalil mamoon brand), some MZ (magdy Zidan) and a few Mya recommendations. None of those brands of pipes even come close to how great the Al fakher pipe is.

As long as you get the hookah you ordered it works. This pipe is well worth any wait time.

The stem on the light version is hollow and the outside stem feels like aluminum and looks dull.

The heavy version has a solid stem, and is about 3 pounds heavier. The metal is a nice brass with good carvings and a very shiny finish.

I can pick up some AF hookahs at a shop bout half hour away from me, and ive seen many different models of them, and the heavy ones look solid and feel very sturdy, i would recommend one, even tho i aint smoked out of it, but what i hear its right up they.

I would also say if you can get any brass core KM's but they are very rare in the U.S, in the UK we can pick some decent rigs from a online website
