Default need help but on a budget...

ok so first of all this is my first post here and i appologize for the extremely common subject but i need some good advice . im in the market for a new hookah because my last one was a mya acrylic knock-off that i had to throw out because the stem broke. im on a budget of about $70 max and i was wondering if you guys had suggestions for the best hookahs for the price.size isnt too big of a deal but im looking for upwards of 12 inches (id prefer a larger hookah but im ok with the smaller kind too) no matter the hookah i buy im going to get a vortex bowl and nammor hose for it. if you guys could possibly steer me in the right direction that would be very very helpful.

Check out this post: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showp...83&postcount=2

Has some good recomendations and I believe is dead on regarding your price range. (Assuming you are not including the Nammor and/or Vortex in the $70 price point.

And I would really suggest perusing the first couple pages of threads and dig into anything that remotely resembles a thread regarding Hookah quality. Should have some good info for you.

http://www.hookah-shisha.com/c-7-egyptian-hookahs.html check this site out, they have many hookahs ranging in prices and they also sell nammor hoses and vortex bowls. Just don't buy a phunnel bowl from them because they are chinese and not tangiers, that makes a huge difference in the quality of the final product.

If you go with a KM, then choose one you like. They all smoke about the same. Go with what looks nicest to you.

The km mini exotica I linked is taller, and has a better hose for less than the one you linked.

I would reccomend looking at hookahstore.com as they have a huge selection and the biggest discount. 20% off any purchase.

If you want tall, get this stem and pick out a vase.
http://www.hookahstore.com/hookah-st...tem-p-359.html

your looking at a 38"-ish hookah. For $80 with everything.

ps (they have it in red, black, and yellow pears.)

Not sure about nammor hookahs, I know that KM's, AF's, The Higher cost all brass Syrians, and MZ's are the better hookahs out there, I wouldn't get anything other than that. But that's just me. After buying two crappy hookahs and a ok one, I decided not to waste any more cash.
