Default New guy with questions...

Hi everybody,

I am relatively new to the wonderful world of hookah. I live in a rural part of Georgia, so finding a sheesha bar or anything of that nature within a 2 and a half hour drive is almost nearly impossible.

Anyway, I want to buy my own personal hookah, but after reading some of the forum posts, I realize that there is alot of garbage out there to sort through when trying to decide which hookah to buy.

I want a quality hookah. One that I dont have to worry about it breaking, rusting, etc. after ten bowls.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a setup under 150$ ?

If so, can you please give me a reputable place to buy it?

Thanks everyone.

Here is a good guide on the basics of selecting a pipe(http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11029)
Check the vendor section for a list of reputable vendors and their sales and you'll be off to a good start.

check the vendor review secton there are quite a few decent vendors out there, as for hookah, if you have 150 to spend on jsut the pipe then you can treat yourself to a nice tall KM (personal fav) but any hookah brand should have a good model within that range, check out the review section for the various hookahs to see which one best fits you.

a few sites i can vouch for right off hand that ive ordered from with no problems are Hookah-shisha
**********
nazarhookah

they each have thier perks to use, (one has alot of starter packages and clerence items,fixed shipping,close to your location so faster shipping respectivily) amoung others, and i persoanlyl havent ever had any customer support issues with any of them. again our review section has an exstencive collection of personal history for items and vendors.

With under a $150 budget, you can find A LOT of great Khalil Mamoons. I suggest getting that. For shisha, accessories, coals, hookah, ect, since you do live in Georgia, I suggest going to Saharasmoke.com or hookahhookah.com as they have warehouses in Georgia and it would get to you VERY quickly with some cheap shipping fees.

Hoses: Razan or Nammor. They are washable and very durable.
Bowl: Vortex bowl, definitely.
Reputable Places: **********.com, SaharaSmoke,com, HookahHookah.com, Maharajahookah.com.

For $150, I'd get that rig, a phunnel, a 'Tangiers Sized' windcover and spend the rest on smokeables!
Check the tobacco reviews to see what flavors you want.

Quicklight coals are good if you just dont have a coil burner nor the time to wait for it to heat up. My only suggestion is to wait until it is fully red and has a layer of grey ash around it.

My personal favorite shisha is Starbuzz. If you don't want to spend that much, get Hookah Hookah or Hookah Freak. I have enjoyed both. Al Fahker (AF) gives me a scratchy throat.

Please research Tangiers before you purchase it, as it is a picky tobacco that needs some care.

Nyxxie brings up a lot of good points about receiving your shisha fast since you live in Georgia; however, 50g samples are your best friend until you find your brand. HookahHookah and Hookah Freak would be a good starter, but you don't have to stop at just those! Test the waters and see what other brands fit your standard. You'll hear 50 more people talk about vortex vs. phunnel, which ultimately means you'll have to do some research. It's really exciting to get your first real rig. Make sure you do a good amount of research beforehand to ensure you won't run into any "why the hell did I buy this piece of shit" moments. It inevitably happens to us all

The brand I got started on was Layalina, and I would recommend it for a new smoker. Decent flavor, easy to manage heat on very cheap. Nakhla is my current go-to brand, but I find I have to use more tobacco (worth it, but maybe not until after one's palate has matured). HookaH HookaH is great (I absolutely LOVE their orange flavor) and comes in shots (great for trying out different flavors; I can get 2-3 bowls for a pack cheaper than a dollar) but the heat management can be a little touchy. Ultimately, you're looking here first rather than buying a cheap chinese and coming here after you realize there must be something more (how I got here, haha), so you're already on track! Have fun...

I haven't smoked out of one personally, but I think the free hookah that Hookah-Shisha does for orders over $100 could be a good option for a starter pipe. I have seen some reviews on it are pretty favorable, but anyone with experience with it should know.

Buy a new bowl, good hose, good coals, and a bunch of different 50g's of different brands. Basically get a bunch of supplies and upgrades, and have a hookah to boot. I think they one they give is a Mya Acrylic.

Any opinions on this strategy?
