Default Looking to buy a hookah.

EDIT:
due to the great help of everyone on this forum, i decided on the KM kafae....
http://www.**********.com/product.sc...&categoryId=-1
i am very excited not only to get a nice hookah, but to support a small great hookah vendor
can't wait for this hookah to get here.... ima pick up some starbuzz before it gets here




so, my friend took his hookah home with him when he left today(87t0y), so now after smoking a bowl a day for the past couple weeks, i'm left hookah-less. (but i'm going to the hookah spot tonight)
i want my own hookah.

i don't know all that much about hookahs other than the small bit of research i have done here.
the one i wanted was the KM heart of the lion, but its out of stock (the one from thehookah.com)
because i watched sambookas review on it, and i liked the look, plus the base from thehookah.com is really sweet looking in my opinion. plus its also cheapest there (from what i have seen)
http://www.thehookah.com/Heart-of-Li...il-Mamoon.html

so, im in the market to buy a decent hookah at a pretty low price.... (i'd like to keep it under or right near the price of the Heart of lion at thehookah) i don't mind where i buy it from, i have no preference, i just want a decent hookah that will be durable, look alright, and most importantly, smoke like a champ.
it needs to come with everything (bowl, stem, hose, base, you get it)
but the bowl and the hose can be of lesser quality if the stem and base are great because i plan on buying a vortex or phunnel in 2 weeks, as well as a heba diffuser and a new hose if the one i get isnt any good.

so let me know your suggestions

http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...on-c-28_3.html - This vendor is pretty great, and they have a 25% off sale going on until Friday, so you can get a nicer hookah for the price you want to pay for the heart of lion. Pretty much all KMs are wonderful. Once you get to the KM section it's all a matter of looks and price. I presonally like this one: http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-323.html it's got the same height, slightly lower price, and nicer looking stem imo.

Looks like they have a new selection of stock! Personally my heart of a lion is awesome and not quite sure how it could possibly smoke any better than this. +1 to what thefaded said about looks.

i was looking at the americana minis, two of the colors in particular i liked and i went and looked for reviews only to find this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR8zhwgfw2g

so i am thinking of getting a heart of the lion mini
http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-313.html

in stock not as nice of a look for the stem, but at least a hose will fit, and i think the mini heart of the lion doesnt have the problems that the americana mini does

edit:
now that i'm looking more, it seems that the mini KMs aren't nearly as good as the fullsize versions

Yea I was actually looking at those two and decided to buy Kafae. The main reason is mainly because its heavier and has better hose than Amer. Its couple inches taller than Amer as well. But regardless, they both are great hookahs! So really you can't go wrong with either of them.
