Default New to the hookah world.

So a buddy of mine recently introduced me to hookahs. I've really taken a liking hookahs and all things related. But being new to this, I have no clue as to what kind or brand of hookah to buy. Is there any difference, other then size? I was thinking about spending between 60-80$ Could someone recommend some decent to good hookahs for a newcomer? Thanks!

KM, MZ and Mya are all good brands for a newcomer.

There are tons of diffrences from hose and port size to stem bore... you will see 2 main groups on here ones for km and ones for mya's.... both have there goods and bads... for that price you can get a really good km (you want to get a large bore,hose sizeto get a good draw. make sure you order from one of the sponsered vendors listed in the vendor sections as they also have discount codes.
i have this one http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-509.html

and you get a 20% discount with the hookah pro code

Welcome to HP!

You can't go wrong with a quality egyptian pipe, like a KM for example.

Here are a few within your budget range:

Cheap KMs from a reputable Ebay dealer!

Tons of well priced MZs from a reputable vendor!
http://www.discounthookahstore.com/i...hp?cPath=19_26

Syrians(Nour, Al Nawra)/AF Hookahs are great too, they are usually brass and super sturdy.

Temsaahs shouldn't be left out either! They are the (in my mind) sister hookah to KMs and have, usually, better build quality.

Mya are they only chinese hookahs people will recommend, they are fine too.
MZs a really nice hookahs in terms of build quality, the welds on my own are nearly perfect. It has a slightly tight draw than the KM. The KM I have is slightly less clean in terms of welds, there is visible/excess amounts of solder on each weld, it has a a very wide draw though, and the welds are just ugly looking, not detrimental to the smoke at all.

KMs have a much more . . . sporadic distribution in terms of quality and you should be aware of that going in.
*braces for wave of KM recommendations*

If you are testing the waters get a Mya qt. If you are one to dive In, get a km or some Syrian brass

I have a KM and I love it. This KM is a single hose KM perfect for single smoking. Great draw since I tried couple of them before in my friends house and can compare with my hookah. I just LOVE KM.

I, too, am with ari on this one. The QT is not only inexpensive to get you started but it is very portable so if you want to go somewhere with friends and bring your hookah it's not a pain. Smoke happy.

These are all great responses. But just in case you were getting lost in the lingo, KM means Khalil Mamoon, MZ means Madgy Zidan and Mya QT means just that "QT".
