Default Hookah Kings Egyptians?

Has anyone ordered a Large Egyptian hookah from hookahkings? by the pictures they looks well "built" and sturdy. I know some Egyptians look good on the web then you get them and the welds and other parts are pretty bad. Thats what happened to mine. Ordered a 21" Egyptian from hookahcompany and i was not satisfied by the welds and what not. Looking at either buying a large(30'' and up) syrian or egyptian.

never tried and never will try to order from them for personal reasons. as zensilk said go with a mz or km from pyh or hc. if you want a syrian jimmy will give you a good deal on those as his are top notch but i think hc also sells them but im not positive on this.

To avoid this, buy a machine made hookah such as Mya or Syrian. Hand made hookahs just leave more room for "man made" errors. If you're planning on buying a Mya though, I suggest you spend north of $120. If you spend anything below that, you won't be getting their best offering.

Yes, I have a KM Amer, and it leans (because of the custom handmade quality) but dang, it is awesome, I wouldn't trade it. I hope to keep this hookah forever! I don't ever plan on selling it or trading it or anything! Just using it to provide me with that quality smoke I am looking for

Here is my KM Amer and the thread that everybody helped me to name her ... Eileen!

No idea!? But I believe it is something you judge for yourself. At first I was disappointed mine had a slight lean, but now I see the character of it, and the handmade craftsmanship, plus I LOVE the name she has been given "Eileen" hahaha fits her perfectly, and she doesn't lean that much. Always provides me with a good smoke.

I am STILL kicking myself for selling my KM Hafa Lesson learned, and I will most likely NEVER sell my KM Amer. Even if I stop smoking hookah I would still hang onto that piece of art!

i suppose its a kind of, 'dont knock it till u've tried it situation', and that the ones who dont 'knock it' get one, and really love them!!

i ordered this when they had it in red for my g/f as a gift, and the stem was nowhere near as intricate as the one pictured. it is a solid ass hookah though, the hose port and purge valve were soldered where they go into the heart, and there arent many "hand made" looking marks on it.

i dont like these people either though, they messed up that order and wouldnt reply to calls or emails about it.

I beg to differ, the mya qt has been one of the greatest hookahs to ever hit the market. 50$

Yes, i do too. The Mya quality is based solely on the stems. And all their stems are worth the buy. I have an Acrylic and the stem is fantastic.

I don't disagree, but you should tell that to the rest of the members on this forum... Seems like any time I even mention the word Mya, most members talk crap and say things like "mya's are unreliable", "they're garbage", "chinese junk"... I just figured since these memebers have had bad experiences when purchasing their cheapest offering, it's no wonder why. From what I've noticed, most people that bash Mya's had a bad experience with either a QT or another small/cheap Mya offering. Hence the reason why I suggested to go north of $120. But I have no doubt the QT is good, it's just that most other people around here do . I'm a Mya owner myself (30 inch Blue Column). It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who knows of the better side of hookah brands :P
