Default One of those talk me out of it threads I guess

Okay so now that I finally got my new debit card in I'm planning on making an order. I'm completely set in stone yet about what I want to order, but right now I have one that meets the few requirements I wanted in a hookah.

1) Something over 40 inches at least (the last one I owned a while ago was 41 and I liked it a lot)

2) As clear of a base as possible

3) 1 hose, I don't like two hosers at all

4) KM or similiar brand.



This was my last hookah that I ended up selling around a year ago. At the time it was getting neglected and I figured someone could get get better use out of it.

Anyway, I found a hookah that I definitely like but I'm not really set in stone about it. http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-5241-...on-hookah.html

It's a tall boy, elegant stem, somewhat clear base and its a km. Kind of expensive but it's not really a problem since it's obviously an investment.

Right now I'm pretty much looking for some feed back to see what people think about it or if anyone has a better suggestion. I'm probably not willing to pay for anything above $200 though.

With that in mind, I'm also going to end up purchasing some coals an a single burner from walmart along with about a kilo of fusion guava (IDGAF, it's my favorite).

So what do you guy's think?

Before I was serious about either though, I'd need to get some input about the plating since I read in another thread that it has the ability to peal (atleast on the km). The Syrian may be replacing the km I had picked out.

Thanks for the postings so far, everyone feel free to provide more input since you guy's have already come up with some amazing buys.

I wouldnt get the AF light as its pretty light and doesnt feel as well built as hte solids, and the syrians nice but remember the shipping on that from the UK, will cost you more then that KM, and i personally prefer the KM.

Dont you like the exotica you had before?? as thats the only one i know thats over 40"

bahaha I think you're right. I was use to the acrylic as the mouth piece I guess. I don't know though, that was the picture of it right after I got it. I ended up using the razzan hoses instead when I first got it.

I don't know the exact term for the km I had before, already sold it anyways. I had gotten it from a vendor that's long since disappeared I think. It was actually sold as a 36 inch but came as a 41 inch. Picture was a different base too and it took them about 3 tries to send me the right vase grommets (never actually got one that was correct either). This was back when km's was just beginning to catch on in the American market, but I guess the seller wasn't putting the stems together with the right bases.

It was definitely the best hookah I ever owned by a land slide. Either way, right now I'm brain storming for input since I don't have to rush to judgment. Right now the Syrians winning unless the shipping is extremely outrageous. I've yet to own ever own one so it would definitely be an enjoyable experience to see one in action.

I'm fairly sure that the hose was built... well wrong I guess. The acrylic is designed in such a way that it would make a really bad seal if inserted into the hookah. That is odd.

yeah it's kind of confusing I guess, maybe this was how they were making the hoses before? Keep in mind that picture is from '07 so maybe they've changed the hose design? The km I was looking at is actually acrylic on both ends while the old one had a wooden tip on one end and acrylic on the other. Could have been flawed though too. Kind of interesting you guys pointed it out.

At to the old hose, I though KM hoses had removable tips at both ends.

This looks like it's darn close to what you had.
KM Ice 38"

And if you don't like the base, they do have clear ones.
