Default okay okay, i know this gets posted daily but....

I i'm in the market for a Khalil Maamoon hookah, I'm just confused as to which might best suit my lifestyle since I am a daily smoker, along with my housemate. But I want my own KM darn it! I have been trying to do research on my own but i find myself becoming frustrated. I have been looking at the local vendors supported on HP because i know they are trusted, I know i want a KM, but I'm having trouble deciding to get a 1 or 2 hose, and how easy a KM can be to plugged if I wanted to only use 1 hose if i happened to purchase a multiple hose. Also, I have no idea what the difference between a double pear, triple pear etc. Is it merely for looks or does the number of pears effect the smoke as well? Price really isnt a issue I just want something that will smoke like heaven and look great on my coffee table :-) any input or advice would be so appreciated. THANK YOU!!!

I have a three hose double pear and i only use two of the hoses on a regular basis. I bought a plug for the extra ports but you can just as well use a cork and there are a few vids out there showing you how to do it. The pears are just for show most kms smoke the same IMO but from experience i would DEFINITELY not get another three hose but a two hose is still up in the air for me. My next hookah will be a single hose just for convenience of not having to plug the other ports and i can always pass the hose if other people want to join me. Hope this helps

Most of the larger KMs will smoke the same so once you get past around 22" its going to boil down to aesthetic value and any additional features you're looking for. I'm glad to see you're still open to the idea of a single hosed pipe and I'd strongly recommend sticking with one hose. Like Manjaco said you can always plug the additional ports while you're smoking solo, and if you need to purge you can unplug the port but I think that its a nicer social environment to have a single hosed hookah. When I smoke in groups I like to pass the hose while we talk and even if the groups get bigger(I've done groups of 5+ with a single hose) you can just extend the session if you haven't gotten to smoke to your liking. I've even gone as far as to set up two single hosed rigs so my friends can try multiple flavors. It all comes down to preference, so just pick the rig that catches your eye and meets your needs.

I have 8 hookahs total, but ever since I found this site I have found that not only did i buy Poopie hookahs but also waaayyy overpaid. I have narrowed down my search to 3 KM's (2 are a 1 hose and 1 is a 2 hose) so hopefully I will come to a decision soon! thanks so much for your help! I know I need it! I'm quite naive when it comes to these things!

I'm really confused , on my sahara I have it set up for three hoses and I just keep it that way, they all have ball bearings so if there isn't a hose in it no big deal, at least I thought, am I missing something?

I think you have to plug the hose ports your not using to use your hookah with something like a cork (i'd assume one from a wine bottle would do) but you would have to be able to remove it to purge the air as needed.

I own a 34" Exotica and shes a beauty.
i prefer the exoticas because of their long delicate stems.
But i think its all mainly self preference...
hope this helps

Go for a one hose unit, you don't need two hoses and they're an unnecessary pain in the ass.

When I first got into this I thought multi-hose units were the best thing ever and picked up several. I'd never buy one again. Too much hassle. Unless your smoking with 4+ people on a regular basis it's totally superfluous.

You know you want it !!!


With multi-hose Nargile's after a while u start to think atleast I did if a single hose would smoke better etc I dunno it just creeps up in ur mind.
Mine is a King Tut 4 hose 2 holes are 90% of the time blocked the other two ports are used with two hoses in even when I am smoking alone becoz it doesnt have a auto seal chamber, so I gotta seal the hose with my thumb while I am pulling and same smoking with other ppl. Gets annoying. Get a nice decent 1 hose in my opinion gets rid of the what ifs in your head etc ! I am going to get a silk butterfly or something similiar to the one above its a sexy sexy Nargile! Hope that helps !

Your choices are fine but I wouldnt go for the 2 hose KM coz you cant take a pull unless the other hose is ever corked or covered by the 2nd smoker.

Be careful of the large sized hookahs aswell coz it will be hard to clean and every time you would want to move your coals you would have to stand and look over your hookah coz its too tall.

Question is, do you just want the pair KM? Is this what tickles the fancy or was it any KM? Tall or Short kms?

Get a single hose km, if you absolutely need a multi hose get a mya, the km is the best but the Mya designed their multi hose hookahs to easily transform from 1-4 hoses in minutes

That's because the modern hookahs have the autoseal in the hose port, while egyptian is a straight, no obstruction pipe, which imo is better, you don't have the convenience of leaving the hose unplugged on a multi hose egyptian, but the draw, as well as purge are easier.

I'd advise against this, mya's are nice chinese hookahs, but they'll always be subpar to any well made egyptian.


A 2 hose hookah imo is the absolute max for any multi hose. I have a 2 hose km and a 2 hose egyptian, both work great, both purge great, I use a rubber stopper for those lonely sessions and 2 hoses for whenever I have friends over (all learned to plug a hose when not in use).

I have a green double pear. It's a great hookah. I wouldn't get the three pear...it's too tall IMO. My next hookah will be shorter than my double pear.
