Default Time to get a new one!

I need help/advice on deciding between two hookahs that im interested in the MZ Sirius (http://www.socialsmoke.com/item--Sir...OOKAHSR01.html) or the Pyramid (http://www.hookahwholesale.com/Produ...-0004&CartID=1). They both come out to be around $50 - $58 and I really dont want to spend more than $60 because I am planning on getting a Nammor hose and a few extra accessories. I also looked into KM's but I couldnt find any vendors that sell them in my price range....
Thanks for the help!!

Well, make a list. What are the points/features of the MZ that you like? Now the Pyramid? Then what about the MZ don't you like? Ok, now the Pyramid. Review your list and see what one has the most liked features and/or fewest disliked features. That is the one you should buy. You have to smoke it so it should be the one that appeals to you the most. Smoke happy.

the MZ is a reliable brand but that price on the pyramid is excellent. Just so i could sleep at night though i think i would be more likely to order the brand that has a reputation

The Pyramid is a Syrian pipe (Al Nawraz) and will most likely have a slightly more restricted draw and will be shorter than the MZ. Don't forget the vendor discounts. (Socialsmoke - 20% and hookahwholesale - 10%)

This kinda puts me into a quandry as I really like MZ's and I'm a fan of good Syrian brass. Either one is going to be a great rig.

Im not sure but I know that the medium is in the range of 24" - 26" however the shipping is very high and thats why the total is around $58

Well to answer the questions above...I like the engraving or stamping on the Pyramid however I am concerned that because it is not a well known brand the quality might not be as good as the MZ. On the other hand the only thing I dont like about the MZ is the lack of engraving/stamping...in my opinion it just looks too plain.

EDIT: Sorry I just realized that I said that the Pyramid had engraving....it doesnt....i was looking at the other hookahs on hookahwholesale that are the same price. My bad lol

So, neither of them have engraving which throws the subject of aesthetics out of play. You can't decide on the MZ which has a good reputation or the Pyramid which doesn't really have much of a reputation yet, as far as you know. Have you checked for reviews on either of them? Perhaps that could tip the scales one way or the other for you. As, I believe, uglybiker said, the Pyramid may have a slightly more restriced draw and be shorter than the MZ. If either of those aspects matter to you it might just make the choice for you then. Smoke happy.

Well after hours of researching I think my best bet would be to go with the MZ with a nammor hose. Does anyone know if Social Smoke ever carries large red nammor hoses or are they just out at this time?

Good choice. I'm sure you won't be dissatisfied. Smoke happy.
