Default Input between a few potential hookah purchases

I am looking to spend in the neighborhood of $100, and have narrowed it down to a few hookahs. I feel like without first hand knowledge of the pipes, I am limited as to my decision making authority, so I was hoping for some of your input Hookahpro.

Here are the potentials that I have looked at, feel free to suggest others.

(I am kind of turned off by the tray issue, but I'm sure it's a great hookah, along with the wheat)

Thanks for your help guys

They are all great selections you got they, i think theys reviews on the 1st and 4th link you gave, photolinger done them i believe

The AF gonna have a slightly tighter draw compared to the other 3 egytians, but all are solid hookahs and if look aftered well will ast a very long time

The welds on the MZ and AF are gonna be better then the KM, but i dont know bout the temsah

All will produce great taste and smoke if set up right.

If i had to pick one which is very close it would be between the temsah and AF, but out of the 2 i would go for the AF

If you like the slighter tighter draw go for the AF defintly, but out of the 4 its all bout the looks and what you like the look of better

Dont forget you get 10% off as well, so you might be able to look at hookahs in the $110 region or consider upgrading to a washable hose or tangiers phunnel if you are gonna spend it all

Go with the med AF and get a phunnel and namor hose. Will make for a nice rig for sure and I am sure John will take good care of you.

i have a nammor currently, and a vortex bowl, so I may get a tangiers phunnel, but am set with hoses

I would definitely say that AF is the front runner currently, and as far as $100 versus $110 is concerned, I am fairly flexible with that range, it's more that level of hookah that I'm after

Thanks for the initial responses guys

i personally would go with the third one but i would get it in a two hose since i never smoke alone but like every one say all of those are great hookahs it would come down to your preference

My brother and I absolutely love the Al Fakher Solid we got from John. We got the small, and for us it's the perfect size.

Just a tip, you'll want to buy some extra bowl, base, and hose grommets!

Is there any difference (besides the obvious) between 30" and 36" solid AF? I'm looking to get a rig that I won't have to upgrade for a long long time. Both are beautiful pieces, and so long as the smoking is the same, I can forgo the extra 6" to save $30 and get a bowl/hose or supplies.

But I think I am going to go with the AF

what is your problem with shoving your opinions down other peoples throats? i don't get it. we all have a right to plead the first amendment. i'm not trying to piss you off and i'm not being disrespectful, but a lot have your posts have been like, "TANGIERS IS GOOD, DON'T GET ANYTHING ELSE, CAUSE TANGIERS IS MADE BY JESUS AND EVERYTHING ELSE SUCKS CAUSE THATS WHAT ERIC TOLD ME" and it's kind of annoying.

i'm not saying your opinions suck, i'm just saying that opinions are like assholes; everyone's got one and we are all entitled to our own.

I have a 24" AF Solid and a Temseh Wheat both purchased from John. The AF looks nice and smokes well. It is very easy to clean. The Temseh stem is very sturdy and heavy. The hose port is big enough that I use a bowl grommet to fit the hoses. It is also very eash to clean and I could use it for self defense. It smokes well too. They are so different in looks I cannot say which one is prettier. I will say the AF looks more fancy and refined.
