Default Over priced?

Looking to get a KM, really like the look and color of this one:
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=5259

Just wondering if it is worth the price. Seems a bit high. I am planning on getting the free Mya Acrylic for a friend's wedding present. So maybe it's worth it.

Any thoughts?

Hookah-shisha.com has been known to be overpricing items thats why they have the price match.

How about this hookah.

Edit : I didnt read the part about the free hookah, that does seem like it would be worth it if your giving it as a gift.

the mya acrylic can be found for as low as 20 something on e-bay and other places. That is a bit high for that particular model. I would suggest **********.com but he does not have that particular red double pears right now. All together after shipping I personally think that it's almost 50 dollars beyond what I would pay.

I bought a double trimetal for about 120 with a washable hose, tobacco and shipping.

Right now John is offering 15% off with orders over 45 bucks and the right promocode. On top of that it's flat rate shipping so that's only an additional 11 bucks rather than by weight shipping.

If this is your first hookah i would do it just for the MYA. It is nice to have two hookahs laying around, so then if one gets dirty, just smoke the other one.

Thanks for the replies. Like the Red double pear by HJ. But I like the H-S's KM base a little better, plus the free mya.

Few numbers to crunch, I'll see. Definitely need to order a windcover and tangiers phunnel bowls from HJ.

But with a different vase. Which is why I made the distinction.

As a note be careful with that base if you get it. The paint on the outside is not particularly well bonded.

If you don't need the free gifts hookah Shisha .com will knock off $30 then you buy what you want and then you add the HP discount and add in the free mini Mya which I have and works great it's not a bad deal. You can also upgrade the mini mya to a two hose with the auto seal for like a few more dollars if you are so inclined and they match prices if you find itelsewhere, they are a good company overall.

You can only apply one discount code at a time. If you want the free hookah you can't use the HP discount.

Not true I just used the dicount and got the free hookah. I think they make up the rules as they go sometimes.

Not. If you take off the price for the tobacco, it works out to be the same price.Except you are paying about 10 bucks for the mini and you are getting other free gifts. You are paying for what you get and getting what you pay for. You decide.

Really? Hmm. Back when I still ordered from them I was unable to do so and was informed that I would be unable to apply both codes. then again this was a long time ago and well before they dropped the freebie offer from 200 to 100 dollars.

just be cautious with this rig - its nice, dont get me wrong, but a friend who has one got two different pears. Both red, but one is a solid red and one has a kind of tiedye effect.

I have a tri-metal and double blue pear KM hookahs. I love them and honestly, it is ok to pay a little more for a great product. No harm in shopping around, however!
