It is essentially the perfect hookah.

All heavy brass parts, great aesthetics, excellent welds, great draw, nice vases, thick and perfect-fitting ash plate. Also, I think it's nickel plated brass, which makes it a bit more resistant to corrosion basically.

I have gone through quite a few hookahs, and have to say that this rig is my all time favorite, by a long shot. Well, the KM Original Tri-Metal is close, but no cigar.

The MYA paragon is the easiest hookah on the market to clean imo, it opens into 4 or 5 pieces and is really simple to clean, the pull is a bit tighter then a KM but some people like that, and the vase is really sturdy and dont seam like its gonna break like a lot of others

Thanks Zen, but as Shien mentions, im ordering from H-S

#Patelboy
Sounds nice, easy cleaning is always a major plus

Now you mention a bit tighter to pull from than a KM, do you think i would notice the huge difference when i only smoke 1-2 bowls a day?

So you basically want a Mya? And that's that? Cause the only good hookahs H-S has are Myas.

Mya hookahs are great, and maybe that's what you actually want, and it may be best for you as well- if you have a lot of people smoking all at once, or you are clumsy, or you want multiple hoses then get a mya! The center stem on a couple models is hard to clean because of the texture of the brass inside, it's very rough, but some just have a long downtube that is simple.

Wanting a Mya has nothing to do with being clumsy or wanting multiple hoses.

They make quality pipes that are consistent albeit modern. He already stated that he likes how the look and does not care about how hard they are to clean.

He also mentioned why hes ordering from H-S.

If you want "balls" and tall, go for the Colossus. Check out the review Sambooka did for it on youtube.

How is the quality of KM's?

I know they are awesome in the way of material, but i mean, they are handmade, and how much can i rely on them actually being in perfect shape when they arrive? Sending it back is over 100$ in shipping, so kinda wanna avoid that.

The only thing you would have to worry about is a broken vase. The stem isn't gonna snap and I don't think the vendor would send you a broken stem. If your scared about the vase breaking some websites sell the stems separately and then you can pick up a vase locally.

#Myka

Picking up anything hookah-related except crappy quicklights, crappy shisha and even crappier hookahs, is impossible..

But you dont think i should be afraid of the stem/vase being poorly made, as in bad weldings that arent airtight or whatever?

I really don't think that would be a problem. I have 3 KM's all are in good shape, you just have to be careful with the KM Chillers. Sometimes they have bad welds which let water drip inside the stem, but I guess I'm one of the lucky ones and don't have any bad welds. There will be visible weld marks and such throughout the exterior of the hookah, which are fairly hard to notice. They are hand made and aren't always perfect, so you will see minor imperfections on the exterior. Nothing that will affect how it smokes.
