Default A Little Hookah Help :]

Alright guys, me and my friends are thinking about buying a hookah, but we really don't know which kind. I'm telling them we should buy a KM because a lot of people I'm seeing around here say good things about KMs. We just want one just so we can chill and relax. I'm not that new to hookah, I've smoked a few times but I don't own one, so I need help choosing. So what do you guys think about KMs, and what kind of bowls do you use. Vortex? Funnel? I'd just like to here some suggestions.

Also, would it be better if we bought one online? I assume they are cheaper than going to a local store.

Ya, you can get a good KM for that price. There are some other good brands other than KM tho too. Check out hookahstore.com. You can get 20% off there since you are a hookahpro member. Im not gonna tell you which ones to look at because im still pretty much a noob. But im sure someone else will chime in and give you some good advise!

You should definitely be careful when you buy online, however, I have had good experience with http://www.hookah-shisha.com/ . If 100 is your max, I would buy a nice Mya hookah. Nothing to big, but it will last and smoke good for years.

Cool, the KMs look real nice.
How does this one look?

http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-303.html

Thinking I might get that one. GalaxyGreyFA1 mentioned they are 20% from Hookahstore if you're a member of Hookahpro.

KM and Al Fakher hookahs are very nice! I have one of each, both smoke the same and I love the look on each of them.

I say check you're local vendors. Especially if they're Arab-owned, you can usually haggle them down to a lower price (This is a cultrual thing, it is both expected and polite.) Especially if you know how much you want to pay.

If you can afford it, get a handmade middle eastern pipe. Mya's are okay but their still machine made, mass produced, Chinese schlock. I'd rather my money go to an actual artisan.

Get a KM, the welds may not be as perfect as a MYA and may not have the "perfect" look, but it has true hands working on it. The KM will smoke like a dream and is made to last. I have both a MYA and a KM and the girlfriend is the only one that smokes out of the MYA, the KM is perfered by everyone.

i got my KM amer for less than 100 and it is a very nice hookah i think. it smokes great. i got mine from hookahcompany but several other vendors here also carry it. you can see it here. it has a pretty generic vase but you can always change that out down the road.

http://www.hookahcompany.com/28_amer..._4306_prd1.htm


heres another one in your price range..http://www.hookahcompany.com/blue_ca..._4331_prd1.htm


and another..http://www.hookahcompany.com/safari_..._4623_prd1.htm

I would suggest a Mya if you've smoked a few times, but have not owned one. It will give you the experience you need in order to see if hookah is something you want to invest in. After that, you can get a KM if you continue the fun!

This is very true. I went to a local shop and bought one for relatively cheap. $55, Sahara I believe (Came with an Egyptian bowl, I should've bought a phunnel right there and then). I guess this will last for a while, enough time to save up for a KM. The guy hooked it up with Coco Nara coals (16 pack) and 2 Starbuzz flavors for free. I'll look into some pipes though, thanks.

Get a Km, I love mine! It smokes like a dream. Look at getting it from Hookah John he is an outstanding vendor.

John is a great guy! But there are more vendors here that have better discount codes which can be a big help for a expensive order like a hookah. But if john has the hookah you want the most then go for it!

I've been looking around John's site and he's got some pretty nice things. I'll probably be ordering from there soon.

Can't go wrong with a KM. You could get some nice Syrian brass hookahs for around that price as well. Stay away from Chinese mass produced crap. Get something hand made with a good wide gauge hose!!
