Default Will the KM be an upgrade?

Hello all,
I am new to the Hookah world and loving it so far. My first Hookah is the Mya Obelisk (4 hose). We are getting great smoke out of it using both the Mya and tangiers bowl. Foil on top with 50 - 80 toothpick size holes and 3 Coco Nara coals with the Nammor hose with ice in the base. Now to my question...I am considering getting a KM of some sort and am curious what kind of difference I should expect between the Mya and the KM or at this level am I mainly only going to have an aesthetic difference?

Easier draw probably will be the main thing, especially if right now you are using mya hoses.

KM hose will give a better draw than a mya hose on any rig....and due to the mya having autoseal(unless you took it out) and mya ports being slightly smaller in general the draw is a bit mroe restrictive than KM. An easier draw allows for easier generation of large clouds.

EDIT: i missed the part about nammor hoses....but yeah...KM will still probably provide a slightly easier draw.

Short answer: yes

long answer: You will have a considerably easier draw, as brad said. It will actually be capable of purging out the bad smoke. And it is the sex (visually).

Yes, the KM has a wider draw and it is absolutely, positively, an upgrade.. I have two Mya's and nothing beats my KM's draw, it's effortless. Mya's are solid rigs though.

Its like drinking Franzia for years, then trying a bottle of Opus, you will absolutely notice a better smoke session.

I have an Obelisk and two KM's. The biggest difference you will notice will be the purge. KM's, because of the closed chamber design, will purge easier.
As for the draw, if you're using the Mya hoses it came with, you will notice they are more restricitve than the hose that comes with the KM. With Razan or Nammor hoses they're almost the same.

There's also less setup/cleanup with the KM because it has fewer parts.

If those are auto seal adapters and if you have a hose off... the Mya will purge faster then a KM


Buy the KM if you want The best pull .... sexy looking beast... and a good stock purge

A friend of mine has the same Mya Obelisk. I need to get a KM of my own before I can start telling him off lol.

The Obelisk is expensive compared to the average KM too iirc.

I don't have a KM, very soon though, but I have been smoking an MZ lately and going from that with a razan to my MYA Vortex with the stock hoses and that felt like going from breathing through a garden hose to breathing through a straw.

KM's are always an upgrade..and I think they just look better then most of the others.

Thanks all for your help. Looks like since I am using the Nammor hose I should be getting the best draw, which already is effortless. So the purge is what I am missing out on. I guess I will look into the below KM and see if it has a purge. Four hose is what I like due to the fact that we usually smoke 3 - 5 per session.

^---keep in mind two things about the above hookah.

1. it will not have autoseal (one of the reasons it will have a better draw)

2. I don't know if the four hose models have a purge(i know the 3 hosers do), but you can just as easily purge thru the opposing hoses...and if u purge thru all three it will actually be faster than having a purge.

EDIT: I guess in the picture it does look like it has a purge on it, but it will still probably be more beneficial to purge thru the hoseports.
