Question Still can't decide.....Nammor or KM ?

So, I am somewhat new to the hookah experience. I've been smokng out of a crappy chinese pumpkin hookah for about a year and just now discovered the entire world behind a truly good smoke. I own a Mya Bambino right now and I want to upgrade. So the question remains....which one? I have pretty much narrowed it down to two brands, a Nammor hookah from hookah-shisha or a KM. I've heard the KMs are better but how much better? Do the ice chiller things on the KM's really cool the smoke? Whats the true difference? I want as much details as possible before I put out the cash to go ahead and get one. I want looks and good smoke..... I dont want to have to settle. So somebody please tell me the right one to choose!

Go for the KM. Although the Nammors on h-s.com seem like pretty decent pieces, you know you'll get an amazing smoke out of almost any KM. As for the ice chiller I hear it doesn't really do much and isn't really that worth it (no better than adding ice to your base) Also consider a temsaah. My gf just got me one for my bday from hookahcompany.com (smokes amazing). I wanted a new hookah and couldnt decide between a km and temsaah, but from what ive gathered they pretty much smoke the same and at that point is just about preference in design. The only thing thats nicer about a Nammor hookah is the stock Nammor hose.... but just buy this seperately for your KM. you wont regret it.

both the nammor and KM are excellent, the advantage of the nammor is that it comes with the nammor hose which is my favorite.
you can pick one of those up 20% off this week since its the anniversary sale.
I think the KM is a better hookah, constructed old school and sturdy. I think that there are a few videos on here comparing the two.
As far as the chiller goes, you will get cooler smoke from putting ice in the base.
If you do add ice to the chiller you should also add ice to the base. The chiller makes a small difference almost unnoticeable. some will say no difference at all. I say it makes a small difference.
I have a chiller on my KM, i rarely use it. It still looks nice though.
hookah-shisha actually carries my hookah here is the link

H-S is an excellent place to order, they have great customer service and the accessories are all on sale this week

i bought mine locally but did my research on h-s, i also got my hose there since a KM hose can not be washed

while your at it pick up a vortex bowl from H-S, as they dont sell good phunnels

I used to order from h-s.com alot too, but lately i've been finding a lot cheaper prices elsewhere despite their great selection. As for KM's you can find ones for much cheaper at hookahcompany.com and I believe **********.com

CAPTHOWDY did a comparison of a km to a nammor
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4iTkQgqTXg

From what i read about the nammor the stem is made by km(not sure the truth on that) i read it on the forums somewhere.

as for the chiller; i smoked last weekend at a friends place with and without and honestly i couldnt really tell. From what i heard it all depends on the person using it. my friend got a hookah with the chiller cause it looked cool.

But they are right no matter what you pick get a washable hose.

KM no ifs ands or buts about it
Go for a KM that you like as all KMs smoke about the same
Chillers are pointless

Ive never smoked out of a nammor but out of personal bias id go with the KM. i think they look great and smoke amazing, also the KM hoses arent bad either. as for the chiller it probably doesnt have much of an effect and personally i think it looks kinda stupid so when i order my new km it most def will not have one. good luck!

Get whatever one you want. They are both good brands and each one has their faults. After all, your going to be the one smoking out of it everyday.

Get the accessories from H-S but the hookah itself elsewhere, check out the vendor discount section, both the americana and butterfly will perform the same so get the one that looks nicer to you
here is the vendor discount section

KM all the way. It really makes a difference. hook it up with a KM hose (Pro or a AZ Pro are the best, but the standard is good too) and a vortex bowl. the ice catcher is not a must however its not bad to have.
