www.hookahstore.com or www.**********.com

I think these are the 2 best vendors on the net.

I would definitely go for a KM and www.**********.com and www.hookahstore.com are both very reliable vendors. I know ********** (if not both vendors) has discount codes for HookahPro members.

Yep what everyone has said. These are two of my favorite vendors and grab a km, you'll be happy you did.

The only pipes that are somewhat legitimate for that price that I can name off the top of my head are the tiny Mya pipes.. the QT, bambino, petite.. but these things are super small.

i like my MYA QT for portability reasons and i dont have to stress if someone knocks it over. If it was my KM they'd probably lose their head if they knocked it over lol

If it's your first pipe and that's your price range, I'd look into the Mya QT. It gets good smoke and has a pretty long life from what I've seen.

If you want a good quality rig your going to have to spend a little more but in the long run its worth it. check out the KM or a Nour Syrian for sure.

I haven't heard much about the econo, but you can spend a few extra bucks for the QT and know you're getting a good first pipe. It's all up to you, though.

This is what I currently own (my first one). It's cheap but, It fits what your wanting High Quailty, Reliable, smokes good. I wish I hadn't been such a cheap-o and threw another $20 down for a km. If you can gather an extra $20 go with a km it'll be worth it.

You can get a KM Americana for $75 at hookastore.com. Use the coupon code Hpro20 and get 20% off

If were all saying go KM, there's a reason.

I got a little 10" black pumpkin hookah from my local smoke shop for 25$ and smokes great. I'm sure you will find something.

The Americana is a ridiculously awesome pipe.. I own one myself and would recommend it to anyone.

You already decided to save for the Americana, right? I'd say be patient and get some more money for a real, high quality pipe instead of rushing into a purchase that you'll end up regretting. I did the same thing with my first pipe and I can tell you I was so happy that I waited for the extra $$$ for a KM.

Again, it's all up to you in the end. That pipe on ebay looks ok in the picture, but who knows how crappy it really is..

I'm the same way man.. I have 3 pipes right now and I'm ready to buy a 4th, but I gotta force myself not to rush the decision so I can find one that's gonna last me a long time and that I'll be 100% satisfied with.

There's a lot of different hookahs out there. If you are looking to get the best bang for your buck you should invest the money and get a KM, they will last you for a very long time and you wont need to upgrade later on. If you really dont want to spend more than what you said then I would recommend the MYA Qt. Most Chinese hookahs are very poorly made and tend to fall apart very quickly but If you know what to look for you can find some cheap ones that are worth the money.

I agree with Hookah Tongs.
I have a QT and it's great, it might not give the same smoke as a KM right off the bat but if you put ice in the base, pack your bowl nicely and use a quality hose you will get it just as good as KM I'd say.
I've had mine over a year and it's still going strong

Rarely do I ever see a KM with two hose ports, are they that uncommon?
