First looks like a MYA QT so with discount from john it works out the same price

Get the QT instead but i gotta say the bases are not very good on them

Second one you can get from ebayin the UK think its called the pumkin

And you might have to edit your link for the first hookah

The first one isn't a MYA QT, actually. It's a knock off chinese. But yeah if you go to *************.com you can get the same looking hookah (less variety of colors) with a better quality too.

Forget about the second one
If you are willing to spend about $40 bucks... just go to *************.com & get a Mya QT

Sam's right about the other options. Don't quote me on this but I'm pretty sure the Zen is just a pumpkin base with the SaharaSmoke Genie stem and bowl

Why don't you join the FAD train and get a crappy KM for the new listed $200 prices =P


but honestly IMHO I wouldn't suggest any chinese Hookah. My bambino and my QT have fallen apart.

I don't know why people bash mya hookahs, they are really good. I just sold all of my hookahs and picked up 2 mya hookahs, 1 mya nou nou and 1 mya qt. I just like how convenient they are, and really easy to clean(espcially for people with small sinks )

And with some customization they look awsome. I got a blue mya qt with blue vortex bowl and blue razan sultan, and a black mya nou nou with small black funnel bowl, black razan hose w/ white handle. They look amazing and smoke just fine for me.

It doesn't matter how Chinese a Mya hookah is. They are thick, all brass, and take a shit ton of punishment. Little Myas are the best little hookahs on the market, by far. Those other Chinese hookahs (which by Chinese, we mean pieces of crap) aren't even worth the shipping cost.

I love Mya's and think they ahve the best looks, but they have too flaws and if they sorted it out, i wouldnt buy another hookah, the chamber is common, and the traditional one is by far easier to purge

And the other the downstem isn't wide enough if they made it wider it would have a easier draw

Yeah common chambers suck i agree, but with the Bambino you avoid the common chamber.
