Default Just about to invest

Hello to all

I'm new to all this, and I'm just about to invest in my first Hookah, but as you would probably expect from a noob like me, I don't really have much idea as to what to go for.

I've been browsing around online, and I hear that KM is a good and reputable brand to go for, and have been tempted to get on of these

http://www.theshishashop.com/khalil-...7dd265335298d9

I'm after a tall one, because i just think it'll look better, and it has to be somewhere that delivers to the UK (quickly if possible. i would like it before the weekend) I have a budget of up to 60, but would rather like to spend less than that.

Has anybody heard of these? and would they be rubbish? I was only really considering these ones as they look cooler and comes with more stuff.

Any other suggestions you may have are more than welcome

Cheers
Mark

I'll have to agree, go with the KM. I hear only good things about about them(Though, welds can be shitty.).
You can't go wrong with a KM! In a few days I'll have my Americana.

Planning on ordering tomorrow morning. Was just hoping to get some feedback from people around here tonight before I press the button.
theshishashop.com offer 1-2 day delivery to the uk if you order before 1pm for about 5 as long as you spend over 40.

if anybody wants to give me any advice as to what (UK Available) smokables to put in there, i'll be really pleased.

Cheers

That second one you linked to looks great. It is similar to a Magdy Zidan in structure. It may just be a renamed MZ pipe, which would mean good things.

My first thought, too.
If you get that pipe, I'd ditch that glass bowl first thing and invest in a plain clay egyptian and one of the phunnel bowls listed on that site, along with an upgraded hose.

Cheers for your help so far guys. If i get the KM one is there anything else that you think i'll need? i know i'll need coals, and something to put in it, but am I missing anything else? Is a wind cover a good idea even if i'm using indoors to keep the heat in?

Cheers

A windcover is a good investment even if you are indoors. They make it much easier to manage your heat. If you are running low on cash you can check out the homeade hookah stuff section on how to make one yourself.

Tobacco never hurts.

Invest in a Funnel or a Vortex as well, it'll definitely be worth it!

Haha. Yeah, some tobacco wouldn't go amiss!

What are the advantages of a funnel or a vortex? and would I be alright with the bowl that is provided in the meantime?

Cheers

Yeah, you'll be arlight with that.

I'm just saying, you'll need extra bowls as flavours start to sink into your bowls and you can't ever get them out 100%, you can only replace them with other strong flavors. So if you tend to smoked something stron like Nakhla Sweet Melon or Starbuzz Melon Dew, you're gonna want another bowl for tobaccos that don't have an extremely strong taste. Hookah Hookah, for example.

Funnel and the Vortex are just little extras. It's easier to smoke out of them and less messy if you smoke very juicy tobacco. They're not a must though. However I thought that I didn't need one at fist since I won't be smoking extremely juicy tobacco, but I just ordered one last week and it works well for Starbuzz and other regular tobaccos as well.

i dont think you could go wrong with any of thoes hookahs. The Km is proably the sure fire bet since most of us have experiance with them. But as for additional stuff you may want to invest in i would go for your cleaning brushes if the hookah dosent already come with them. A good washable hose. then i would read the reviews on coal and shisha and go from there with your choices. maby subscribe on youtube and watch the member reviews and pick what shishas that sound the best to you. I would say go with the most common and most flavorfull and washed brands like starbuzz and AF. Ive recived some fresh batches of AF yesterday and it really seems thay have fixed there throat tickel problem so i think you can safely venture back into AF unless there sitting on old stock. Just my thoughts. ans as long as for the bowl you cant go wrong with the funnel but your egyptains will work fine also just will take a bit more to master the way to pack it. this is my 2 cents hope this helps. good luck in making your first purchase.

Thanks for all your help guys. I got the KM. I ordered it this afternoon, the customer service from theshishashop.com has been fantastic, and i've had an email back saying it should be here tomorrow!

I'll write a review of the store when everything has arrived.

Cheers
