Default Need help picking my next hookah...

So, I'm in the market for a new hookah. The Sahara is getting retired, and the KM is too big to transport easily and a hassle for quick smoke sessions.

Looking to get a Mya, probably one under 15 inches, unless it really makes a difference. I just don't know which of the Myas are decent. I'm looking for something that I can easily throw in a bag and pop over to a friends, something small enough I can set it on the desk while I'm working, something that I don't have to break out the bathtub to clean. Budget's not really an issue because the Myas don't tend to be that expensive anyways.

I've heard that the Petites have bad glass and the smoke's a little warm. I don't know much about the Gelato, Razo, QT, Piccolo, Chic or Nou Nou. And is there a real difference between the Econos and the regulars? I know there's probably review's, but I haven't come around them yet and don't have alot of time lately to go surfing around looking...

Thanks guys!

Edit:

I forgot to mention that I'd prefer something that I will be able to use a Razan hose with, and will take other bowls than just the Mya bowl. I am in love with my Vortex bowl...

You should go with a QT.
They're portable unlike Kms but affordable and produce massive smoke

mya bambino or qt. I own a bambino and its the best small hookah money can buy in my opinion. All the reviews on the qt and bambino have been overly good so I would look at those. Hope this helps.

I own both the qt and bambino, and both are really great. Both are easy to set up and clean being common chambered, only difference is the bambinos center of gravity is high, so it tip when I use my razaan/narbish. The qt can handle a narbish, and razaan when I put the extra port on it. Either one is a win in my book

Quoted for truth. Get this one. Get it on clearance and it is less than $40 I believe. Smokes great. Even if you purchase a new base, it still comes out cheap.

I have a 35" km, but for travel and ease the Mya qt is the workhorse, if was my first hookah and it does the trick, comes with a travel case so transport is easy.

Started out on this sucker, was only $50 shipped(on clearance) and is still with me to this day. its a Mya so its still a common chamber etc but the stem is long enough that heat was never an issue with it.

Although the mini myas are recommended, I would prefer something under 15 inches so that it can sit on my desk and I can still reach the coals. Also, I have enough for a new hookah, but not with a $100 order as well.

So the bambinos tip over but the QTs can handle the washable hoses? Well, add one point for the QT on my score sheet!

I have a KM. I want something different. If I was looking at a generic chinese I would agree with you, but it is widely accepted that Myas are of high quality.

The Mozza is like 29" tall. Under 15" for me, thanks.



Does anyone have any experience with the Gelato, Razo, Piccolo, Chic or Nou Nou? I really like the look of a couple of these but am worried about the hose port not accepting my Razan and whether I'd be able to use my Vortex. And does it matter if I get one that's only 12" tall? I know the smoke quality won't be like my 36" KM, but will it be cooled enough and all?

All Your accessories will fit on the QT, the QT works well. Get The QT unless your willing to spend a 100 at hookah shisha and receive the free hookah.

I looked at the others again, and noticed something. They're all built along the lines of a pyramid, while the QT has a big block of a vase. Will the others tip if I use my Razan?

(Y'all are starting to convince me of the workhorse there.)
