is that in the order you would rate them at?

The qualities of a good hose would be medium to large hole size, the handle, and being washable.

any other thoughts?

The qualities of a good hose vary from person to person. A larger gauge hose has a more of an effortless pull where a smaller gauge has a restricted pull. The three most common washable hoses are (not in any particular order) Nammor, Razan, and Grand(Caravan).

Nammor and Razan are practically the same... the tip is removable. Where the Grand (Caravan) hose has a glued on tip. Its a personal preference to which hose style you get.

Mya has some nice washable hoses. So does alot of other no-name hoses. I think Fezzik has a saudi washable hose that he loves and they are also cheap (under $10).

Now on personal preference you have to think of how many people actually like non-washable hoses. Thunder is one of the members here who (as far as I know) loves a good ol' leather hose and he has multiple hoses for different flavors.

There are many companies that produce hoses...all the way from knock-off chinese ones to brand names. If you want to make a broad amount of money you have to offer a good assortment of hoses... the best thing to do would be to check your competitors website.

i got two razan and two grands.. love all 4 of them, smoke like a dream. The razans are sooooo much easier to clean because of the removable mouthpeice. i cant find a funnel small enough for the end of the grand. but the grands come in sicker colors.

km hoses suck because they are made out of cardboard and not washable.

Having washable hoses is a great thing, but if you have a qualitative hookah hose (like a KM hose) and just blow out the smoke after every session, than it's do the trick too.

And as the others already said there are many brands of hookah hoses: nammor, razan, grand/caravan, km, mya, al-fakher, etc ...

I havent washed my razor in at least 5 months now.. And the taste is not bad at all.. so I really understand why a hose maybe doesnt even have to be washed if you use it correctly.. I must say also that 2 of my 3 razors was ruined in the first week I got them.. Strange ? well.. yeah.. Not the best quality I must say!
But razors have a effortless pull as someone said, this is not always better!

For nakhla I like smoking with normal sized hoses for normal pull but MORE con centrated flavour.. And also someone told me that you burn the shisha harder with smaller sized pulls and I belivie them..

Im really really tired of my razor.. feels like some big plastic thing in my mouth and too much pull.. I love the smaller hoses now that is more easy to use and not a 20 inch handle...

I have a leather hose - made by Ager. I picked it up from our local Hookah importer.

I really like it! I see it is called: Crystal Sheik Hose here - http://www.smoking-hookah.com/product/927001.asp

But of a different look, but it smokes great!

I have something called a Saudi Washable hose from thehookahstore.com. ON the handle it actually says Easy Lay. Which cracks me up. It works like a dream. We actually have a larger gauge one that we don't use nearly as much and 3 others that we almost never use. Others may not like the same hose it is all about preferences. We have some that perform fine but the mouthpiece just isn't as comfortable. So I guess the question comes down to what is important to you and how important is it?

You won't get a complete definitive list. That is impossible or maybe not impossible but improbable considering the sheer numbers you are talking about.

true, that's why you shell out the extra 5 dollars and get a washable hose.

mint did nothing for my first hose.
i smoked three, 1 hour sessions with al-fakher mint, and nakhla mizo mint.
even put altoids and those red and white peppermints from restaurants in there, still did nothing.
i let my hose hang for a week,
then i beat the fuck out of it and blew compressed air through it for 5 minutes.
smoked 2 more, 1 hour sessions of mint.
then we tried vanilla 3 days later and it tasted like a minty asshole.
that hose is now rotting in a landfill,
while my 2 nammor hoses and my razan sultan laugh at it.

Hoses are personal taste thing. Some want washable all the way, others couldn't care. I have:
1 Razan
2 Nammors,
4 MYA (washable and non)
and several generic hoses

Some hoses work better with certain rigs, others it's a given (Nammors/Razan with anything larger than a 20"). But I also perfer my long handled generic MYA knock-off as well, it "feels" great and smokes fine with my smaller rigs.

It all comes down to what you are looking for - washablity, feel, length, ect. You might have to try several brands/styles before you figure out which you perfer the most.

the ends are extremely bored out, great pulls, you can wash out of the acrylic ends (they come off).
