Default Hey, can someone recommend me some stuff for my Egyptian Hookah?

I feel like I should upgrade on it. I'm ordering a small generic Chinese funnel bowl for it. I also feel like the stem where the hose goes into the base could use an upgrade.

Finally, I wanted to ask what the board's opinion on Three Kings charcoal is? I don't feel like it heats the tobacco on my hookah very well, it always takes two to get decent smoke, but then it gets harsh. The local cafe uses them I think and you always get awesome clouds and flavor there, so I don't know whats up. I could probably use a better brand of charcoal.

I also would like it if maybe someone could recommend a small hookah under 40 bucks. Starbuzz has one, and they make good tobacco at least. I wonder if that would translate to the quality in their pipe.

Pick up a mini Mya for around 40-50 bucks. They're about as good as a mini hookah can be.

+1 OSS. You cannot go wrong with any of the little Mya's. Just pick one that appeals to you and you'll be thrilled with it. Smoke happy.

I'd recommend switching to natural coal. When I switched from QL to natural it blew my mind how much tastier my smoke was. Coconara's are really popular here.


I have a Mya QT and I would just get one of the cheap KM's personally. They run about 70 bucks.

I know H-S has that Mya Petite for 25 bucks and I've heard good things about that hookah.

I agree with BobMarly and Gadfly. BM because there is BIG difference between nats and QL's. Though I use both once in a while. And I agree with Gadfly about Hookah-Shisha.com (unless he means HookahStore). They have a couple of MYA that are not expensive and onthe bottom of the page there are reviews.

Yes. You'll need to light them over an electric stove or be EXTREMELY patient with a flame.

In my experience with 3 kings, being one of the few options by my place, they really stink when you light them, and they are only good on larger bowls. they worked really well on my vortex cause i only needed one coal. i prefer Golden coals when it comes to QL's, but if i found some natural coals i would pick them in a heartbeat.

For someone who is newer to hookah I'd recommend washable. It depends on your price range too. I love my Al Fakher Healthy Hoses but they have a tight draw which took some getting used to. I'm very happy with them, especially since they only cost about 3 bucks each.

My Nammor is really good too, and a lot of people like that ~8 dollar washable hose from a specific website.

as said up above, a QT, Bambino, a mini mya, they'd all be your best bet. and relativley inexpensive. use Nats!!! I use exoticas over coco's. I think they burn easier and if you can manage the ash they give some of the best evenness of cook. I also have 2 nammor hoses which I would definetly recommend. as ride said, hookah-shisha.com is the only vendor that has official nammors. the rest will be fake.
