I have the large af and it smokes well but the only down side is you unscrew the top nipple to remove the ash tray and it's so pretty i don't want to ruin it by over using it that trimetal looks sexy i would say af/trimetal

You can't go wrong with either of these hookahs so go with the one you like the look of most. I don't see the point in buying a km from the US when you can buy the Al Zia from the UK so I would choose between the AF solid and the KM Al Zia.

If you can afford it I would personally buy both, I think as a hookah enthusiast you should have one top end eygiptian and one top end Syrian. There's a big debate about which is better so if you've got both it doesn't really bother you. I've got both and no longer require any other hookah.

If AF wins im getting it from John, if tri-metal wins im getting it from shishabuzz
Yh im more leaning towards the AF ATM as i allready have 2 KM's and no syrians

But il probably end up buying both now as i cant decide which i like better, they both appeal to me in a different way

if you have already got kms you are better off getting the AF. also the 2 shisha smoke in diffrent ways so you are better off trying something different.

If you already have two KMs then I think you should get the AF

IMO, KM all the way. The AF is nice but id see it as being a hookah more for looks.

If you are hooked on the looks of the AF medium solid or want something different than KMs, then get the AF. Otherwise, the AF won't purge as well as the KM and the draw is more restrictive.

I voted for the Al Zia.

Are you saying it doesn't purge as well or as quickly? Who cares how fast a hookah purges, all that matter is that it clears the smoke. I rarely even purge when I smoke anyway.

According to Photolinger it purges fine.

It takes long to purge. The valve, cap, and tube are all restrictive. Drilling the valve and cap makes it better but the tube is still a problem (it's crimped in two different spots).

The KM will flow better because it has wider gauge tubes and less restrictions. The AF is somewhere in between a Mya and a KM but it purges better than a Mya even though it feels more restrictive. If you don't mind that, go with the AF if you like the looks better, which IMO is it's best attribute. *looks over at my AF and waves, "hi there sexy!"*

Also keep in mind the AF medium is not 30" tall, not even with a bowl on there. It's ~28" with a small Tangiers phunnel. It comes with a typical medium base with AF logos not so greatly painted on but the stem will fit larger vases with 2" openings with a size 30 gasket.

All I was saying that IMO all that matters about how a hookah purges is whether or not it purges completely.
