Default Need advice on some brands, and website

I just saw patels video review about www.shisha-net.de , he gave it a 10/10, so I went to the website to check it out.

First, they sell a few KM hookahs. I am looking for a nice hookah which is not too tall, like 85 cm max (that's ~33 inch max), and saw a KM Butterfly for €50, and the trimetal 86 cm for €65, both looks gorgeous! And they got a few other KM's for €50-65.

Anyway, are these prices cheap for KM's, so is trimetal for €65 cheap/butterfly for €50 cheap? It seems like you get a KM hose with it.. but not sure about that.

When I saw those KM's, I went checking out the tobacco they sold. I know German tobacco sucks, but trying a few samples is never wrong.

I saw 4 brands of tobacco I don't know:
- Arabica Tobacco
- Bisan Tobacco
- Crystal Tobacco
- Sahara Tobacco

Anyone knows these brands, or one of them, and can tell me how the tobacco tastes?

Then I went to the coals to check them out. I ordered coals from Germany before, and they were damn cheap!
This website sells:
- Coconara, 54 pieces for €3,69. This is €7,4 for 108, which is ~$9,15.
- 40mm Instant lite coals for €7,99, $9,89.
- Bamboocha Nats, 3kg for €6,49, $8,04
- Cocobrico 3kg for €5,99, $7,42
- three kings QL's, 33mm and 40mm for €8,99 and €9,99 per 100.

This is just wow, never seen such cheap coals. Even the coconara's have a nice price, never seen them that cheap.

They got a few hose brands, nammor hoses for €18,99, and a few brands I don't know.
Some bowls, I think some cheap chinese phunnels, vortexes, but they are cheap!

After seeing all the products on this site, I definately am going to buy things here, coals for sure, maybe a KM, some tobacco..
So, can you tell me anything about the tobacco brands, and about the KM hookahs, are they cheap, anyone ordered one there before?

Forgot to say they ship free when you order €70+! So one hookah + some cheap coals = free shipping.

I ordered my first KM from them about a month ago. It was a pharaoh.
They are great, fast shipping, good communication.
They do give all the needed stuff with the hookahs: bowl, hose, grommets.
As far as i know their KM prices are quite cheap.
I ordered as well a Bisan glycerin, that's a "do it yourself" stuff, i bought locally 40gramms of cigarette tobacco, washed it and then i poured the glycerin onto the tobacco.
It has a very good taste , lasted throughout the session with good clouds.
As for the coals, i use those Aladin Bamboocha naturals. In the 1kg box there's 120 pieces and they last around 1 hour long.
Great lovely coals, unfortunately i cannot compare it to coconara since i havent tried that.
Go ahead make an order, they wont let you down.

Patel, did you get free shipping when you ordered your jumbo vases/windcovers, or wasn't it >€70, or didn't they have that free shipping when you ordered there?

Hmm.. after some thinking I think I'll go for the 31" KM Butterfly... but on the picture, it got a white/black vase and a black/orange hose.. But the only color I can choose is 'green'. What does that mean? Green vase? Green hose?

I got a problem with this website when ordering, anyone can help me?
I can only select one sending method. it's for €0,00, pick it up at their shop, there is no option to send it to my home. How can I select it? I assume they have an option for that as they sell to the UK too, so probably to the Netherlands too.

I placed an order today, and I am pretty dissapointed in the shipping costs.
€22.00! too much if you ask me, I sent them an e-mail about that. If Hungary is €18 and Uk is €18, Netherlands shouldn't be more than that, even less.. Netherlands is next to Germany...

i want to order but for some reason im feeling very skeptical its the same old case of always hearing if its too good to be true it probably is, I know you guys who have ordered from them received your orders but are the items authentic? Have a really bad feeling they might be cheap knock offs...

for example that blue base costs 60 dollars according to **********
http://**********.com/Khalil-Mamoon-...-GOLD-1105.htm

However the same base is like 18 Euros here
http://translate.google.co.uk/transl...isha-net.de%2F

I know its a similar story with the coal, so people who have received their items please tell me about the quality of what you have got. Sorry for my skepticism I just want to be sure before I order.

I'm not sure thats its better, I just own a butterfly and love it. I saw it only your list so I thought I'd cast my vote. Go with whatever you think looks great and is a good price. The sooner you get your rig the better

Djaffa, very nice order.
But think again about ordering the cococha 3kg. I've had 1kg boxes, they were very nice. Yesterday I got 3kg boxes shipped in, and those coals are much bigger. Really HUGE,


And yes patel I guess the weight is more than 5 kg's as I ordered 3kg coals and a hookah plus some coconara's.. I'll email them about it, and if that's the case I'll remove the coals and add a windcover, they look so nice!

And Djaffa, I should stay off all German flavours, but that's just me. I don't know any of the brands, and their shisha is quite expensive imo

The size for cococha is different. You have two kinds, the big ones and the smaller ones. The difference you can see by the color on the box, one is with Yellow other on is with Red.

The box of the large ones:



The box of the small ones:

I wouldn't really compare the prices to US markets. But how do they compare to other vendors in UK?

Thx for the heads up Blaat Geolas the stuff they sell apart from the flavor and hookah itself is very cheap compared to what we have in the UK, my suggestion is to buy the hookah and flavor from uk and everything else from them.

I e-mailed them today.. shipping costs were €17 instead of €22.. still expensive if you ask me, but I think it will be OK for >5 kg's.
They said they'll ship it on monday as their boss or so was on vacation. I hope it'll get here in a day or 2 then from Germany.
