Default Need help picking my next hookah

So long story short. My tri-metal got stolen last night. I was out on my deck smoking a bowl, went inside to pack a new flavor in the bowl, get something to drink, and go pee. When i came out, my hookah was long gone. So im in the market for a new one. So these are the 2 im looking at. The tri-metal here is the same one that got stolen, but im not sure if i want to go a bit taller. Advice?


KM 34" Tri-Metal - $129.50

Trimetal looks so much more classy.

The tri-metal smoked great. the only reason im thinking about buying something different is because of the size.. These 2 are the same price, but the double pear is 7 inches taller

Taller is'nt always better....You'll find alot of people will agree that the 29-34 inch KM's smoke the best....

do you have any reasoning behind why the taller hookahs dont smoke as well? i would think the only difference is the time the smoke has to cool down.

I didnt know the pears were plastic! i figured they were painted metal, or ceramic or something. This might actually be the deciding factor. i dont want a toy, i want a hookah.

THey will both smoek the same but the pear will be a massive headache to clean, and if you are like me that likes to clean after every smoke, it will get annoying cleaning a rig so big, but if you dont mind this, then go for it

I agree with TAP, go for the tri-metal or even the one he put up, the OG. Up to 30" is good plus I wouldn't want a hookah that will be difficult to access the bowl/coals whilst sitting down. But thats my opinion.

Love my trimetal. I was thinking about getting the pears, but the trimetal is just so solid.

You don't need a tall hookah unless it's a Syrian. Not worth the extra $$ to buy a tall KM. I would get a KM Amer, KM Hafa, or another tri-metal, or an AF Syrian.

Not sure what you mean by this. Are you saying the Pharonie is styled like the OG or that the OG has a copper/brass downstem?

Ohh yea sorry, what I mean is any tri-metal style that has the all copper/brass downstem...Not many of the original Tri-metal's have the copper/brass downstem still although you can still find some...But all the phoronie's and cooper hearts have the copper/brass downstems...
