Default Whats the best shisha for everyday use?

Hey all, Im looking to buy a new hookah to replace my 3 year old egyptian one. I use it atleast an hour everyday so would like somthing wich doesnt need as much cleaning. Im not too worried about the looks, it jus needs to have brilliant smoke and flavour. Any help would be great. thanks

You used the right term Moo, its just that we americans for some reason changed the meanings of the terms used everywhere else lol.

.
Ive never smoked from a KM but Ive heard that most KM's above 23" all pretty much smoke the same, there are slight differences in construction though.

Have you read this yet?

I personally use a brass syrian but I wont go on to say its the best as many many shisha will do the job. It's the best for me bur maybe not you.

any hookah is best when you have a bowl of nakhla on

I personaly have a KM but when i get some more cash (or sell my km) im definetly going to get a syrian or an MZ... or both if i got enough cash hehe.

Syrians- are pretty and durable as hell
KM- not so much anymore but get the job done and hella good
MZ- look nice smoke good (just as good as a KM imo)
Mya- either a bambino or a QT the rest suck but thats just me

Whatever flavor you like.

Most of the time, after a few sessions of one flavor, you'll get sick of it and want something new.

Hence the large cabinets of mostly unused tobacco most of us have...

Shisha is one of the more proper terms for hookah. It does not mean tobacco. Why would you call tobacco "glass"? hookah tobacco or shisha tobacco makes much more sense but sadly "shisha" has become a commonly used word for such tobacco. I don't get too stressed about it. People learn eventually as they spend more time here.

I can't really tell what is good for you regarding a hookah. If you value portability I would suggest a medium to small Mya. If you want a traditionally made pipe I would suggest a Nour, KM, Temseh or MZ. There are other great models and brands out there but they are not widely available in the US.

Take a look at the hookah buying sticky and see what sounds good to you.

thanks for all ur replies. Ive read the topic 'Which hookah should i get?' but the thing is theres just soo many different types and if they all smoke the same. Then i guess is just about personal choice of looks rite?
Arnt syrian hookahs a hassle to clean? Im looking for something i can clean quite easy as i do smoke ALOT!
btw for some reason i just cant get sick of smoking AF-Double Apple with a touch of naklha cinamon. Im in love! haha

Any larger hookah is a pain in the ass to clean. My maya's come apart and I find them easier to clean than my KM's because you can just clean them piece by piece. If you want something that smokes great, comes apart, and is easier to clean, get an AF rig.

I agree. I got a 24 inch AF from **********. I don't know how it could be any easier to clean.

Don't forget some of the others. Generic egyptians may be talked down, but once in a while, there's a gem in there. Sahara's aren't that bad either for the price. If I hadn't gotten one of the crap batch stems, I'd be using my Sahara just as much as my KM.

stick with an egyptian style if cleaning is an issue, every other hookah I've bought is a bitch to clean, I own a mya now, and i must stay its almost indestructable and smokes wonderful, but is a bitch to clean... lol, yes they come apart but you can't compaire that to one long tube with no little ridges or crevases for gunk to hide in.... pluss you can even clean the blow out and main connection with ease on an egytian, and it seems that is the way kms are built, ive been looking into them recently myself...

this might help with your mya cleaning. first scrub it with dishsoap to get a lather built up and rinse it clean, then take it and plug the end (finger, clay, C4 what ever) fill it up with white vinegar and let it sit for 15-60 seconds, drain and rinse well. that will kick out 99% of smells and will give no tastes, the first time you do it or 2 it might come out green as hell though

If using C4 keep all detonators as far away from the hookah as possible

mo0 If your in the uk and want an 'indestructable' hookah with v low maintenance you must must consider a High-Life... They are so well made and smoke like a dream...my only complaint is that they come with quite short hoses...but you can plug another one in no probs if you want... I have had my meteorite (see avatar pic) for over 5 years and it is absolutely brilliant and easy to clean... I have had about 5 MYAs which are better looking and fancier but they have all let me down...and not to be taken seriously (if you plan on smoking it a lot). I have a KM Ice chiller on the way because I've heard good things about KM ... but I can safely say High-Life will not let you down and the stem is one piece (the best because its easier to clean though less portable but it also means its v hard to damage)

Oh and another thing about MYA I think people are talking about the little ones being good...that much is true I have smoked from friends little myas and they smoke nicely its almost surprisingly good for such a small narghilla so if portability is your priority then one of those would probably be the way to go... as the MYAs which come in like briefcases and look more fancy and have some height are in my 5 experiences not good... only 1 of the 5 remains and I'm sure the bottom stem threads that attach to the centre piece (which plugs into the base) will go any day now.
