Wow, you guys telling a new hookah smoker Tangiers is the best, what's wrong with y'all? For a new smoker stay away from Tangiers! It is not how hookah smoking is supposed to be and good tobacco shouldn't have to acclimate.

I like the stem, but not a fan of the base color. Im not a fan of blue bases. Have you looked at Hookah-Shisha.com? They are located in Austin and it may be cheaper for you. They have free shipping in the Austin area and I believe you can pick it up as well, may have to ask to make sure.

As for bowl, get a vortex and mod/egyptian bowl. Phunnels take practice to get used to while the others are idiot proof.

i read the review on this hookah and the guy was new to smoking hookah also and i don't think it was a very good review...anyway he had a different vase (one not as nice as this one pictured) if they picture this vase do i get this vase or do they give u a different one? because i want the one pictured and not that crappy looking one in the review.

all the KM's at Hookah-Shisha.com are supper huge, i dont think i want anything taller then 3 feet. unless hookahs are normally all this size, and they seem to be a little more expensive and not "brass". BUT they do come with a free cheap hookah with any order over 100$!

If it is pictured you get it. I haven't dealt with a vendor that swaps out bases on you unless you ask for a different vase.

Vortex and funnel bowls are both awesome.
I wish i could add to that but i can't. Great post texashookah91

ATX, yeah I put up that review on the Kamanja... Should probably update it, as I have had probably 15 smokes out of the hookah since then. Gotten a vortex and an alien bowl also since. No complaints at all. Construction on it is pretty sturdy, so I don't expect any problems down the line. My kids will probably break the vase before the stem ever gives up. Hope the pics gave you a better idea on construction. Send me a PM is you would liek to see any other detail pics.

I still have the stock KM hose, but a friend has let me borrow both a Narbish v3 and a Romman hose, and in my opinion, the pull is a little more effortless from either of those hoses, so I will probably get one of those in short order. Probably the Romman, as this hooks is 26-27 inches and the host end on the Narbish is a little too long.
