Default Hookah Pipe?

Hi everyone, post number one here!
I'm just curious what anyone thinks would be a good hookah for a beginner from hookah-shisha.com. I'm kind of set on this site because I'm currently located in ATX and it comes highly recommended from my friend who introduced me to hookah. I have absolutely no idea what kind of hookah to get, but I looked at the chiller syrian hookahs and they looked kind of nice, although that's pretty much the most I'd like to spend. Anyone have any suggestions?

i have tryed a lot of hookas but my personal faverit hookas would be hookas from lebanon.. they smoke like heaven... theres only one thing you should keep in mind and that is that it only has male heads that means that the goes in to the pipe. so no phunnels no vortex.. i own both heads and i rather smoke with my male egyptian then both the vortex and the phunnel. so if you are able to get your hands on one of those i highly recomand it ! have fun smoking ^^

You're in luck, look for a male/female adapter and use any bowl with your hookah.

Thanks for the quick responses, I think my newest thought is whether or not I should just go with the cheapest Nile hookah- http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-93-ni...se-hookah.html
Or if it would be significantly better to shell out the cash for a syrian chiller- http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-1713-...ed-hookah.html
...the thought of an ice chamber makes my mouth water but I'm not really sure how much difference it would actually make. How big a difference would you expect to see?

Ice chillers make zero difference. My pal and I tested two pipes side-by-side. We did everything we could to make it smoke cold and it still smoked warmer than the other pipe. So basically it's style points.

Not much at all from my research. No personal experience with it.

Alrighty then. I'll either go cheap with an egyptian or search the interwebs for a Lebanese hookah. Another question, is 2 hose a good idea? I'm thinking this is mainly going to be a social thing for me, so I was thinking it might be a good idea.

My vote goes to Syrian hookahs personally. I am a big fan of solid brass. it's sad that the prices jumped as of late on pretty much every hookah.

I'm glad I went with it for mine. If you're at a gathering it's convenient to be able to drape a hose in opposite directions so you'll probably never need to physically rotate the hookah if you have people accumulating on all sides. Generally I see things break down into a "Member" hose (those who are sitting idle getting their buzz on) and a "Guest" hose (for the curious or the uninitiated who want to take a crack at it without having to cut in )

My MYA Chic has interchangeable ports on the stem so when it's just me or an intimate group I can turn my 2nd hose port back into a true purge valve. If you do go w/ a two-hose configuration, be sure to get one that self seals so an idle hose doesn't lead to serious cloud loss.
