Default My first Hookah

My birthday is coming up so I got my self my very first hookah as a gift. Its not real fancy or big but I think it will be a good beginners rig. I ordered it today so I am hoping to get it by the weekend.

Here is a link to it.

I also ordered a vortex bowel and some starbuzz shisha.
I am very excited about it.

Anyone have any experience with this particular pipe? I know the km brand is suppose to be good but that's all I know from my research. Let me know what you think.

Definitely a nice first pipe. I wish I had done more research and joined HP before buying a shitty chinese (which cost me more then my KM!), but it seems like that is the in road most people fall into.

That rig is good for beginners or experienced hookah smokers! You can't go wrong with KM. Good pick, and enjoy!

Thank you all for you input. I was a little nervous about ordering it being my first one and all.

Bigpoppa

In your review you said

The Km came with a hose similar to a Nour hose. I tried putting my Razan hose into it, but it was quite snug. It will fit but I had the feeling it would not stay well. The draw is somewhat tighter than I expected, again not like a regular Km but it wasnt as tight as the Nour I had purchased that is similar to the one Bradedup has.
I actually get a better draw from my QT. The tray however is very small. It is quite thin and somewhat disappointing.
I smoked some Desli Murli Khus (fantastic by the way) using a Med funnel bowl. The bowl did not fit as well as i wanted it to seemed to want to slip off. had to play around with the grommet to get it to stay. The draw was not bad, a little tight, but did smoke well. Now the important question, how did it purge? It purges very good. Quickly and completely cleared the base. I was actually a little surprised since as I had said it draws a little tightly.

Should I worry about these issues or being a new smoker I wouldn't notice them. I also ordered a Razan hose do you think this will be a problem. Thank you again for all your input.

No dont worry, its a great hookah. It just doesnt have the wide open draw that the larger KM's have IMO. You will have enjoyable sessions with it. The hose port is a little smaller than I thought it was going to be, but the Razan tip will fit just dont use the grommet. It will be quite snug but airtight so no problems there. The tray was very loose and i wasnt expecting that, its kinda small but you can still ash your coals in it. For its price and portability its a good hookah. I still use mine for traveling sometimes.
Enjoy it and hope to see you do a review on it to see what your thoughts are.
