Default Looking for a couple of suggestions

Hey everyone, I'm new here. I consider myself somewhat experienced in hookah smoking, but when it comes to making choices, I'm completely hopeless. Yeah, I've read the sticky and skimmed through the reviews (in fact I found my way here through Sambooka's Mya Colossus review on youtube). So I thought I'd ask the pros for inputs

Now, I'm looking to replace my entire rig. I've already decided on a Vortex bowl and a Nammor hose, both of which I suppose the majority will approve. I can't really decide on a specific hookah though. Some time ago I had settled on a Mya Bambino, but I decided I wanted something... bigger. I guess I should go for something by KM? Nour? Another Mya? I'm open to any suggestion really.

Also, any specific online vendors you would suggest for someone in Europe? I've noticed the site gets along pretty well with a lot of them

Thanks in advance everyone, cya around

I'd go with a KM Carnival if you're just looking for something a little bigger than a Bambino. It also won't run your cash flow into the ground, giving you more to buy lots and lots of shisha/coal.

Just my opinion. Hope it helps.

I'm not sure about the UK vendors though man, I'm stateside.

I'm a fan of Mya's. I guess I'd have to say that you just can't go wrong with one. The only KM experience I have had wasn't exactly stellar so I won't go on about them. On the other hand, most others seem to swear by them . . . Good luck with your choices. Smoke happy.

Can't go wrong with a Nour or KM. Personal preference of what you want, but after I got my Syrian I have been on the hunt for another. Something about a Syrian sets it above the Egyptians.

I am happy with both my Mya and my KM. KMs have a better draw and usually look better, but that comes down to personal taste. I actaully use my Mya much more just because it's small size makes it easier to set up on my desk. You could always try both. Order a KM and make a purchase on H-S over 100 dollars to get a mini Mya (the one I use). Not sure how H-S is with European shipping, but I am sure someone on here can tell you about that. Or you can call their customer support, they are extremely friendly and helpful. Hope this helps.

Welcome to the site

Yes a Vortex, Nammor hose and a good quality Egyptian or Syrian hookah.
... I use all three or a variation of the three for my setup.

Check out some of the "Supporting Vendors" for some good choices in all those options!

Thanks everyone. I suppose that for a larger hookah, you can't really go wrong with any KM or Nour hookah then? I mean, should I just find one that looks good and the quality is guaranteed? I haven't really decided on anything yet... Maybe I should just get the Bambino and be done with it... bah, choices!

yeah when it comes to a KM its mostly which style you like most the build will always be good sometimes you'll get a few nicks on the stem or the paintings on the base won't look so good but that won't affect the way it smokes at all

I agree. My KM has it's little blemishes, but I see it as adding character.

I really cant suggest one, for i havent smoked any except my friends Al Fakher medium sized hookah. ( i do believe) Got it for $20-$30 in Germany. (where he lived before coming to the states) But i am buying a KM Carnival. Check them out! Not a bad price at all, and they are BEAUTIFUL!!!! http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...on-c-28_3.html
