Default Help me Choose between two hooka's

Wel on my journey to buy my first hookah.
i'v searched over 1000+ google results for hookah websites.

and these two are my fav's
now i want your opinion on what you should buy if you were me.
and why ?

I want the hookah for myself i dont go to party's with it i just smoke in my room.
Sometimes outside on the balcony.

I like the looks of Syrian hookah more then the Khalil mamoon.
But i think quality is really important !!

mabe good to know i dont know if the vendor is speaking the truth
This is what the vendor says about the syrian looking hookah

Hey,

The quality is higher than any other brand out their, a sample look at the pictures will give you more than a proof.

The hookah is completely handmade so there's no machine involved, just so you know.

Have a great day.Chadi

IMO, the syrian on the right is a better hookah. It is solid brass and a beautiful work of art. You are comparing two totally different products. I would not pay $200 for a KM or any other Egyptian hookah. The Lebanese site sells it for around $60 and they are making over 50% profit. You'll have to pay the shipping but there is a $100 difference in price and for that you can buy all your tobacco and accessories. The only negative about the Lebanese style headl is you are stuck with it unless you get an adapter so you can use vortex and other type heads.

It is the KM that he is talking about there are 2 hookahs on their website that look very similar. The KM looks like this http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-5374-...on-hookah.html and the one your linking to is the Nammor which is similar but not the same. Note the hose and the difference in the stems along with the gold paint around the base of the Nammor.

I would never buy anything from ebay... I had bad experiences with it. Hookah-shisha on the other hand provides excelent services.. On what kind of hookah to take? I personally would go with the KM but thats my opinion.

You can never be sure what you are getting is 100% from EBAY. Why not go with a trusted vendor and be 100% sure you are going to be happy with what you get.

Because i think that good communication is the key to get what you want on ebay. and the vendor hookah shisha wil cost me 200 $ and ebay 100 $ thats a big price differnce.!

and the style / art work of the syrian is way better looking then the KM

The vortex is a bowl type that is heavily touted by many members, I personally love them as well so in my eyes it would be a large con. Here is some really good information on the vortex bowl itself http://www.hookah-shisha.com/hookahl...underdome.html
Hope this helps

Ah okay so the main pro's are

- Longer sessions
- Efficient use of the shisha
- Longer taste.

The cons are

- harder to clean.
- Expensiver.

For the record i'm pretty handy with building things. and modding.
isn't it possible to make myself a vortex or is that just a Ffin crazy idea?

I still dont know wich one to buy...
i'm leaning more to the syrian hookah because of the price looks and reactions.!

Nothing wrong with the Lebanese bowl except they are usually small and it is a matter of preference, thats all. The Lebanese head is a MALE type where every other type like egyptians or Mods or others like Vortex or Funnels are Female type. The con is you are stuck with one size, one style of head unless you get an adapter. Certain tobacco (wet types) are better smoked in a Vortex or funnel since the juices are kept in the bowl rather than dripping down the stem.

Yeah I am not sure about how well you could make a vortex bowl, but hey who knows! The main thing with it being a Lebanese as stated before is that you are limited to the one type of bowl. All I can say on the hookahs themselves is that I have the exact KM that you are looking at and it smokes like a champ and is beautiful! But all we can do is give you suggestions and you gotta do what looks good to you!
Here's hoping I helped some

Ah okay I'm still questioning the vendor.

I didnt got a clear awnser on my question about the name of the brand.
the vendor said it's like the quality of the syrian.

So that sounds to me like stripping a toyota make it look like a ferrari without the ferrari Hardware...

@party_clown. i pmd you.

Yeah when it comes down to it with vendors like that if they are not open for questions and stuff like that I usually do not order from them, and usually I usually use vendors that we get discounts for.
