Default Official MYA VS EGYPTIAN VS SYRIAN

A lot of people have very emotional opinions on which hookah is best.

It's time to settle the score once and for all.

Leave a description of why you picked your vote.

Let the Battle Royal begin!

As boomhauer said, this battle will NEVER end... and what people list as their favorite now, it may change 6 months down the line.

This being said, I have 3 Syrians, 1 Egyptian (owned 2 total), but never a MYA. Personally, I enjoy Egyptians or other types of Syrains - NONE of mine are from Jimmy (not saying his aren't great). Syrians have their pluses, same as all of them, but for the long haul - give me a hand-made Egyptian any day.

The way I look at it, is if I was going to have to buy something, knowing what I know now. I would definitely buy a Khalil Mamoun (KM).

I own two KMs and if I was had to consider another hookah, you can bet your ass I would be buying a KM! They make me happy and have not let me down, "knock on wood"

KMs are beautiful, hand made, very functional, and all around just a great hookah. That is just my opinion though ...

Well this topic is fun, but it'll be biased based on everyones experience...

I dont think anyone out there Owns a J & R, as well as a KM, as well as a Higher end MYA. So based on what people actually own, is what the results will show. People can't choose J & R if they have never tried one. Likewise, people can't choose KM if they haven't tried one of those either. You get the point...but still a good poll

I would lick my KM (nicknamed Eileen) if it was in front of me right now, it is my favorite hookah and I have tried multiple hookahs.

Damn, you know that's impossible to say? Like.. literally. Cause people like different hookahs for different reasons.
Some people like Myas because they are pretty. Some people like Egyptians and Syrians for the same reason.
Some people like brass, some people like Stainless Steel, some people don't give a shit.
Some hate Common Chamber, some like it, some like Traditional Chamber.
Some people are in it for the price as well.
And others for height.

It's impossible! Ahhhgghh!

HookahETC. is right...not everyone out there has had experience with all four of the above options... But, I on the other hand, have experience with three of the choices... I have a friend that owns a tall Syrian, I originally came from the Traditonal Egyptian crowd (my first hookah ever), and now I own two Mya's, and my other friend ended up purchasing a Mya Diva a while ago. Oh, and I almost forgot, I used to have this friend that owned a 13 inch Traditional Egyptian(which I ended up claiming ownership of for two years), but I don't talk to him anymore for certain reasons... Anyway, I think it's safe to say that I have plenty of smoking experience with these three choices.

In my honest unbiased opinion, Mya's are the best. I'm not talking about the cheap little Mya's you can get for $30-$50. If you're going to compare brands, then you have to be fair and compare their best offerings against the competition's best offerings. And in this sense, Mya has always won from what me and my fellow smokers have experienced. My friend's Syrian is bad ass, don't get me wrong (it is a great hookah), but a Mya seems to have a little something on top perfromance wise.

Sure, Mya's are not hand made. So they are not "traditional". Who cares? I understand some people might, but I don't. For me when it comes to hookah as well as everything else in my life, I purchase with quality and performance in mind rather than "best bang for the buck". Ever since I first started smoking hookah over three years ago, I've been smoking out of nothing but Traditonal Egyptians(including my own 33 inch), and my friend's Syrian occasionally. I wanted to try something different, so I ended up purchasing an expensive Mya. I can honestly say I've upgraded, and I've said this before but after upgrading from a traditinal to a Mya, I never looked back. I jumped out of the bandwagon and tried something different on my own, and I have no regrets whatsoever.

I'll be honest, for the price of my Mya, I could've bought myself two tall Syrians, or even three medium-small Traditional rigs. But I don't mind the price tag, because I'm sure this is the last hookah I will ever purchase, and I don't see myself purchasing any other type of hookah any time soon or at all, so it was worth it...

Actually I own all 3, although I dunno if my KM is a real KM... no one has ever answered me when I asked

I 've never smoked a KM but I already tried many egiptians hookah and they are pretty good, but my Mya is really better
it isn't so traditional but it has nothing that I would like to change, it's perfect exactly the way it is and I've got just a 33", not a colossus or something so expensive (anyway, I guess it won't make any difference...)

I always get the best smoke out of my Khalil Mamoon. I also use the Mya Arcylic and I used to have the Mya QT. They are both fine hookahs and if you know how to pack their bowls the session is perfect everytime. I like the Mya's since they are small and very easy to clean and setup and I like the Khalil Mamoon for the very easy and effortless draw, big base to put more ice in, and it lasts a lifetime. The only problem I had with my Mya QT is the hose adapter where it eventually wore off after about 5 months of use but if you are careful with it I think it would last a lot more than that. I actually wished both my Mya's had a built in hose adapter rather than a removable one. There is never a need to remove it anyway so, not sure why they made it as a screw-in adapter. Every hookah has its positives and negatives. For example I can't take my Khalil Mamoon to work with me and smoke it in the car or camping/road trips.

I would say my Al Fakher 30" (Nour rebrand) is as good as the KM I own... But since I didn't want to be biased, I had to buy the 24" and 36" AF and two more KMs to test them out.

One of each does not a good sample size make!
