Default Any Idea?

Thinking about placing an order tomorrow from Hookah-Shisha. Nothing special, but I was looking at a mini hookah for my wife, well for both really, but mainly for her. I really like the look of the Starbuzz Mini Hookah, plus I can get $33 off the price, but I can't find any video's. Only reviews I see are on the site, so what do you guys think of this little hookah? Is it one of those buy it and see type things and then put a review up of it? Or should I just go with a pumpkin for cheaper, including the price match guarantee.

Not looking to spend too much, end of spring I will be placing an order with John for a KM, maybe even sooner.

To my understanding atleast from what i hear the starbuzz hookahs are overly priced chinese hookahs. So i believe you would be just as well off with a pumpkin hookah as the starbuzz.

I would highly recommend the MYA QT or bambino. I believe the price would be about the same and much better quality. Just my opinion though.

You should really get instead a Mya QT or a Bambino....

I really like the piccolo instead, but it's a bit more expensive.

They'll knock $33 off and it'll still be overpriced. It's just a cheap stargate knockoff. The clear section is plastic and it will wear out real quick.

Here's a couple you might want to consider for GOOD moderately priced rigs:
http://www.hookahwholesale.com/product_p/hke-1905.htm
In Europe, this is marketed as a Nargilem. Very highly regarded. Chrome plated brass.
http://www.hookahwholesale.com/Hooka...p/hke-0004.htm
This is a very well made Al Narwas syrian. All brass.

I have both of these hookahs and they smoke just as good as any hookah by KM or anybody else. Not to mention they're better looking than any dumpy pumpkin. Also, they're big enough that thy will take the big Nammor/Razan or Narbish hoses without falling over like the mini rigs will.

Glad I asked on the Starbuzz. I figured it was cheaply made and overpriced, reason I asked about it.

The Pumpkin I can get for $15, which is why I was also asking about it. I have my 24" Hookah I use most of the time, but my wife doesn't smoke much, plus sometimes we disagree on what to smoke. I was hoping to get by with something cheap until we order our KM from John. I am looking into the Mya, but will the pumpkin handle a bigger hose, such as a large Nammor hose?

I got a bambinoo and smoked out of a QT both smoke great and look great. IMO one of the best if not the best smaller hookahs out there. Havnt tried the Pumpkin yet though.

A pumpkin will tip over for sure with a nammor/razan/narbish, trust me on that.... a bambino is a very different story.

I got a mya mozza and absolutely love it. Comes as a one hose but you can put another hose on it. I'm using the big mya hoses that look like namoor knock offs, so I'd assume the namoors would work as well.
