Talking ok need help picking

EDIT: SO I WAS TALKED OUT OF THESE 3 AND INTO EITHER A MZ FROM SOCIAL SMOKE OR A KM(IF I CAN GET THE MONEY FROM MY FIANCE) FROM SOCIAL SMOKE. WILL POST WHAT I END UP GETTING.



My and my fiance are picking up a bigger hookah than the 9" we have. So we have narrowed it down the 3. yes i know they are cheapys but i dont really care i have a max of like $45 to spend on this check so i might as well do it. anyway here are the 3.







her favorite is the blue one....because she likes blue things. I really like the frosted glass of the one and the spiral of the other so i just cant decide.

So, i turn to you HP, help a couple that is horrible at decisions make a decision.

Does your little hookah still work? TO be honest I would save the money until you can buy a better one. You may be able to use those for a few months or a year, either way it will eventually rust on you. If the little one still works, then why are you in a hurry to buy one of these? It just seems like you would be throwing money away.

Anyways, to answer your question, I like number 2.

Gotta agree with the Captain here. Don't waste your money.

Consider this: Your pipe is a one time investment. You're going to spend a lot more money over time on tobacco and coals. You can buy a hookah now for cheap, another cheap one in 6 months or a year when it breaks or rusts over (Sometimes even sooner) and by then you've spent enough to buy a KM.

Consider that if you spend a little extra now, you'll get a pipe that not only will smoke better and be more enjoyable, it will also last you the rest of your life, with proper care.

Find a good vendor like Hookah John or Hookahstore, and use a discount code, and you can probably find a damn nice pipe for under $100.

Spending as little as you can on a hookah is a road that only leads to disappointment and wasted money. I know because I've done it.

[FONT=Verdana]I am going to have to agree with CaptHowdy. I would wait a bit until you can go for a better rig. I could be wrong but all three look like generic Chinese made, and I have owned a few of these over the years and none of them last much longer than 6 months to a year at most. I would save up and go for any Syrian brass or KM.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]But if I had to pick I would go with Number 1.[/FONT]

Agreed. MYA QTs are pretty nice hookahs at that price. They're not big and fancy but they smoke pretty damn well IMO

If you have your heart set on one of those three then I would have to say the third. While I have no experiance with dirtcheaphookah or how they work that one look to be on of the newer saharasmoke models and, if this is true, then you may have a better chance at fighting rust if it is a newer model vs. some chinese pipe (this may also not be the case. just talking from a glance). Now as for the 45 bucks. Manjack is right that alot of people rave about their mya qt's. I've never really heard any bad words from their owners which makes for a good review on them. Now, there is also the option of a hobonarghile which now has a new model that seems to be getting a big buzz around here. And, if you did pick one of those then you would not have to worry about keeping it anywhere persay because it is so versital.
Anyway, I hope with whatever you get iworks great! let us know what you choose =]

QT's are very nice for a small pipe, only negatives are the purge isn't great, the bowl is fairly small, and the ashtray is also small. But it's a small hookah, so that is to be expected.

What color are your drapes? Just match that and you will be set.

I matched mine to my car, worked out great!

I would op out of the mod hookahs in your first post and look at hookahwholesale's collection line, they're not km's, but an egyptian (even generic) would be a better investment, even if it's only in the $40-$50 range:

A large sphynx or pyramid would be $45 or the large king taut, which would be $50.

Ok i went threw a good amount of websites and found a few i like and can afford now HP let me know out of those what will last me and is a good smoke.

CHOICES:
Pyramid

Delusion

Sirius Magdy Zidan

and then there is a 34" 1 hose egyptian on texashookah.com for 69.99 but i cant get the discount to work so its out of my price range. unless someone knows a working code.

out of those 3 the one from Social Smoke is the cheapest (because of free shipping)

Go with the Pyramid or the Magdy. Avoid the Sahara like herpes.

http://**********.com/Syrian-Grip-28-2041.htm

Thats the one i want but then i seen Out of stock and cried a little. Lol

Ill prolly go wit the magdy just because the pyramid i dont know how big it is or anything alll i know it is large lol social smoke gives me alot more customization and just for that they will prolly get my business. Umm ill prolly wait a day or two. Just to see if ********** gets any of those syrians in. Now the last comparison, Magdy vs the out of stock syrian lol should i wait for it or just get the magdy?

I'd go with either MZ or pyramid and pass on the ssc hookah.

Just for the shits and giggles I've tried the test cart with pyramid shipped to OK, with a 10% discount, everything comes to around $54. BTW their large egyptians are 29"-30".

And the MZ with a 25% march discount and 11.70 (didn't see free shipping) comes to around $58.

Free UPS or FedEx ground shipping within the U.S (excluding HI & AK) for online orders of $50 or more.

For the MZ, i did the cart thing with the mz and with free shipping it comes to $55 lol with the 15% discount.

lol i tried it on a KM and it was 78...if only i had that kinda money right now lol. But on the Other since the discount knocked it down below $50 wont be free shipping. can easily fix that by adding accessories to it to get it over 50 hehe
