Default Buy From The UK? Or Is It Realy Worth Buying From USA?

looking to buy a new shisha, the original plan was buy a Mya Gyro 2 hose from the USA for about $180 + $60 shipping which is about 145 pounds, or i can buy a KM from the UK a Alam Misr 32" for about 70 pounds($115), now i want to know is that extra cost justified? the only other bonus is that i can stock up on starbuzz if i buy from the USA, as i can only get AF and fantaisa here.

IMO nope not worth buying a hookah from the U.S unless your gonna stock up on like 10 odd kilos of shisha, the postage isn't worth it

I bought my paragon for something similar last yr, but the currency was better so i paid 130, but with that money i could have got 2 tri-metals from the UK

And shishabuzz probably has the nicest looking tri-metals atm available on the net and they are 70 i believe as well

Didn't even know about shisha buzz! just had a look on their website which of those tri-metals would u reccomend? Are these better than the al-misr on hookah royal? also if you want next time you buy from America, flavours that is we could do a joint purchase? Save us some postage.

Yeah that would be fine, i have been doing that with fellow hp members on here before as well

They both will smoke the same, but i prefer the looks of the tri-metal on shishabuzz a lot more

IMO it's the best hookah available online anywhere and it happens to be available in the Uk and if your looking to buy a hookah then really you should look no further. In regards to which one there all the same just come with different coloured vases, bowls and hose so go with the one you think looks best

If you do buy from the UK, spend at least a few days looking, as I've found some sites that don't come up in google searches!

Here's one example off the top of my head. Need to check often though as always has different stuff. Also sells on eBay, often at better prices. http://yalgo.com/

Don't forget, many UK sites still have stock of poper shisha, just kept hidden from customs prying eyes!

Try shishawholesale.com - may be worthwhile if a few of us club together. Based in the UK but minimum order is 250.

I've got a catalogue coming so will update on prices. Maybe be able to get a UK HP members deal going if I get a bulk of Nakhla.

I've found another guy, but he has no website. He does retail and wholesale. Waiting on a pricelist from him.

Will update as maybe we can get a good deal if we buy in bulk

I am a proud owner of the Al Zia. All i'm gonna say is, I love it and have never seen a shisha better than it. Its awsome and i've been stung in the past with over paying in the past! shishabuzz delivered really quick and I got some free El Rosha (a new brand of herbal flavours,... Quite nice actually!)
