Depends on what style you want, but in your price range,

Egyptian, I'd go with a trimetal or a Parad-Ice

Syrian: J&Rhookah Brass 29'

Don't know a thing about mya though.

For an Egyptian Pipe : Khalil Mamoon (check pimpyourhookah.com), or Magdy Zidan (socialSmokehookah.com, Pimpyourhookah.com)

Syrian: I would prefer a JandR rig (JandRhookahs.com) over anything because the stem comes apart, and it is solid brass. Other than that, i would say go with a Social Smoke Syrian (socialsmokehookah.com)

Multiple Hose: I would say a Mya (Hookah-Shisha.com) . They are very durable and well made. They have stems that come apart. They may actually has brass cores (not exactly sure). You can add (or subtract) hose ports to add to the hose number.

For a 1 hose rig i would recomend a JandR Syrian first. Then a KM or MZ Egyptian hookah.
For multiple hose, only a Mya.

well if I had to pick my vote would go for JandR Syrian being that I own two of them and they are solid pieces and come a part for easier cleaning and solid brass. But if you are looking for a Egyptian I would say an MZ from pimpyourhookah or Social smoke.

Sup Mikey! Right now, I am recommending a Khalil Mamoun from pimpyourhookah.com you can pick one up with a discount code for around $50 and up. I really like the way they smoke, appearance, style, quality, ease of cleaning, and ease of purging. They also have some nice Magdys.

What is it specifically that you are looking for? Besides bigger / taller?

I've never had good sessions with a multi-hose rig and since you can simply get hose tips by the gross for almost nothing what is wrong with passing a hose? While I have a KM and love it my Syrians from www.furathookahs.com and www.jandrhookahs.com are without a doubt the best narghiles you can buy new. You can read my review I have here or ask me about any rig i've got if you want.

I strongly recommend that you don't buy a Mya or any other Chinese made product. Partly it is because you really shouldn't use your money to support communism and slavery but also because they make crap products. I've had a lot of experience with them and I know plenty that agree. A KM, MZ or Al Ashrey are all great Egyptian products so if those appeal to you more then Syrians you'll still get something great that will last you many years.

8 people is a lot of people for a single hose hookah? Do you always have that many people smoking? If so you may want to look into a multi-hose hookah. If it is only on rare occasion that you have that many people fighting for the hose, then stay with the single hose hookah. you can also consider buying an additional hose port adapter, and turn your single hose into a double hose?

Just trying to get a good solid understanding of what you want ... we will help you find the perfect hookah for your needs

That KM large is an amazing buy. Considering that soon. I Am stuck between that and a MZ large white pharaoh. I want to add an Egyptian to my collection and those are the ones I am between but that price on the KM large is great.

Yes, i would go with a KM or Social Smoke Syrian. for 80 bucks you can get a really nice one. KM's comes with great hoses, but sadly they aren't washable, so i would say that you need to buy a Nammor from H-S to compliment such a good pipe.

I'm actually going to go against what everyone is saying... i would get a Social Smoke Syrian in your position, as they are fully brass (which is a more sturdy metal than coated steel). And 80 bucks will get you the nicest one on the site.
Syrian:

But, if you would prefer an Egyptian, go with a Khalil Mamoon.

No i wouldn't recommend it, they are leather so it most likely will get ruined.

KM's are nice, SS Syrians are nice.
They will smoke the exact same, but in all honesty i would say the Syrian would last much longer.

You cannot clean a KM hose, they are leather and not washable. I use washable and unwashable hoses. For both of them, I just BLOW out the smoker after I smoke. I haven't washed a hose in months! But if you get a KM, looka t getting a washable hose to add to your collection

I would say that with what you are looking for ... a KM sounds great! It will definitely be manageable with 4 people sharing the hose and conversing on a social level.

Cheers!

Personally I like the Large out of the three. But if you are looking for a chiller hookah i would go with the Parad ice

I am in agreement, if you want a chiller go with the Parad-Ice, if you do not want a chiller go with the large! Great choice in brand, I can't wait to hear what you think of it! Let us know ...

Cheers!

I'd say get a nice MYA or an Egyptian. Egyptians from hookahcompany are pretty tall and they don't cost too much

Get the parad-ice it's the same model as the large only it has a chiller (Which you may want later on). It's only 10 extra.

yes. It actually chills the stem. I don't think it would work as well as anyone would think, but it would work to an extent.
