May I ask, why a two hose? A one hose is fine unless you plan on smoking with like 8 people at a time.

Normally I'm not one to say this kind of thing, but these threads have been appearing again en'masse and people arnt doing any looking around first.

Use the search button. Theres tons of threads about where to go to grab new gear, whats good, whats bad.

Check out the reviews section for info on coals, moassel, and pipes.

www.**********.com has a good selection.

i personally love af starbuzz and nakhlah these are good tobaccos i would say get a few and test them out to see what you like best. you can also look at reviwes to c what other people think.

there are wide selection of coals you need to test them out and see what u like best. u cant go wrong with natural coconut coal

im not sure because i usually do it with another person so this way we can both have a hose for hygenic reasons or is having a two hose weaker smoke?

a 2 hose is a waste of money. you can use hose tips if you are worried about hygiene. you can get just as gd smoke with a single hookah

Kalil Mamoon (KM), Mya, Magdy Zaidan (MZ), Al Fakher (AF), Temsah, or some Syrian hookah would be the best bets.

If you want to get a cheap hookah that smokes well and you could turn into a 2 hose later on if you decided, I'd go with a Mya. The only problem is that you won't have a purge valve then..but that's not a huge deal.

No there aren't any reputable vendors in Canada, but just about any vendor will ship to Canada. There really isn't a limit, however they can charge duties at customs especially if you order a lot. I tend to keep it around 1kg of shisha at a time, usually lasts me a while.

most regular Egyptian bowls you get hold about 15g. The hookah actually works very well however make sure you dry it after each use, the inside can rust. I would get an extra 50g or two if I were you just to test it out thoroughly. Also don't get the RED color, the red bases on the Cheaper Egyptians on that site are not red glass but only a red "layer" added on top which will wear off pretty quick.

I have read a lot about people trashing 2 hose hookahs. I have 2 2 hose hookahs and a KM single hose. I love my dual hose hookahs. I enjoy playing board games while smoking with friends (like backgammon and checkers) and it's just nice to always have my own hose ready to go next to me. Just try not to draw from both hoses at the same time as it can really heat up the coals and may burn the shisha. I have no problem otherwise with the two hoses and would have no problem recommending them.
