Thumbs down is this the best hookah for around $100?

This will be my third hookah so far, currently i have a 22" egyptian
and have been wanting something better.
I've used quite a few mya and have noticed they usually give huge clouds.

would you recommend this model?

hhttp://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-1642-mya-hookah-odyssey-2-hose-hookah.html


btw, it will mostly be used in groups of around 4 people. (sometimes just 2)

and i'm a smoker on the go, usually having to take it various places (which is why im thinking acrylic).

has anyone used or heard good/bad things about this model?

The pull on it is quiet hard, espciually having it as a 2 hose model, i think you could do a lot better for a $100.

Check out the black friday sales a lot of stuff is going to be on sale and at very good prices, espcially at hookahstore with 30% off

Thanks.

my km 23" heart of lion II was 75 from thehookah.com plus a tin of sb citrus mist was 85. plus shipping/cali tax was around 90 something. to me the hookah is great. good pulls, purges well, not too big to move around, great for personal uses. (if u go through thehookah.com too and your a student u get a 5% off purchase which can almost cover the sales tax )

Mya makes a good hookah. They're a bit restrictive as far as airflow is concerned. But I suspect you could take just about any Mya or KM and you'll be happy with it. Personally, I'd take most Mya hookahs over a KM for group settings. The Mya pyramid style glass has a huge footprint that isn't likely to ever knock over. At least not from just tugging the hose a little too hard. Egyptian hookahs are usually taller and the basic egyptian glass has an unreasonably small footprint for something so tall. Plus, the KMs aren't as travel friendly as Myas are.

Seems to me that if you already have a KM, you ought to get a Mya for group smoking.

One unlikely benefit I see in my Mya hookahs is that because the airflow is a bit restricted, heat management isn't as crucial. Provided the taste is intact, you don't notice the harshness so much because it takes longer to draw. This is another reason I find the Mya hookahs good for groups. Especially for new smokers in a group who aren't as acclimated to smoking yet.

Just some thoughts.

All that said though, I'd stay away from the acrylic. It really feels cheap. I know in my local shop they have some nice looking Mya Hookahs in the 24" range for about $75. I've never seen that good a deal online though. So, for 100 bucks, maybe the acrylic would be about as good as you'd do.

With KM and AF hookahs in the same price range. why do people always look at the MYA hookahs.. (shrugs)

I mean, the MYA hookahs have thier place and the MYA QT from what i hear is awesome. However in the end, you're still buying a chinese hookah. Just seems wrong IMO. lol

That really doesn't seem important. We get lots of excellent products from China, as well as some really crappy ones. iPods are made in China too, but they're renowned as one of the best personal media players one can purchase.

Of course, all that said, Mya hookahs are generally more expensive than they should be. But price aside, every Mya I've ever smoked from has delivered a great experience.
