Default Help me choose please

Alright, im ordering my hookah soon, but now im having second thoughts and they are purely price related. Im looking at a really nice KM, its $130 which is a little steep for me since im also buying a shit ton of shisha in my first order. Im kinda thinking about looking into the cheaper AF hookahs. Anyone have any feedback on what i should do?

I just bought a 24" small Al Fakher hookah and even though it is smaller than my KM it has a wayyy better draw man. I love this thing, I am thinking of buying a new base for it though, I just think a genie type vase would make it look better imo.

So if the smallest of the AF hookahs is a beast I could only imagine what the big brothers are like. lol

af is the sexier of the two, im being honest, no biased this time.

as for the draw, you'll be happy with both, so id say go for the AF, and enjoy being able to afford more supplies

Honestly, if they smoke about the same I'd go with the AF and spend the extra money on shisha and accessories like extra hose and bowl grommets, a spare bowl and maybe a wind cover. KMs are lovely, no doubt about it; however, when it came time for me to purchase a hookah I went with one of John's Magdy Zidan hookahs, because it cost almost a half of what the KM I had my eye on was going to run me. I don't regret my decision at all.

KM has become overly proud of their product. Thankfully I bought mine long before they became ridiculous. I don't care how many different metals are on the outside of the stem. I don't feel the need to pay 50 to 100 dollars more just for looks. Go with the AF and enjoy knowing you didn't keep feeding the out of control KM money beast. Like Photo said, get more supplies with the bucks you'll save.

Agreed. The new AF's are one of my favorite looking hookahs.
They smoke like a champ too. The purge of course is not as good as KM's, but from any hookah I've smoked out of... It's definitely at the top.
You will not be disappointed with any of them at all

With **********, is it WYSIWYG? Because I like that AF rig because of the blue glass base. I don't wanna get a different color instead.

I just got the AF medium solid (from John) and it is just as pictured. AND I love it!

Stupid question, but both KMs and AFs will work with most hoses and bowls right?

Yep, make sure it's a tangiers funnel and a razan or nammor hose. I think those new Abu Mahir hoses from Nazarhookah.com would go well with the blue base. He has one that's blue and silver color pretty cool.
