Default Checking out Hookah-Shisha.com

I am wondering if these animal hookahs are worth anything? I am interested in either a three hose eel one or the three hose crane one, I am just skeptical I suppose. Any input would be great! Thank you.

I say skip them. They are extremely hard to clean and for the price you can get a better rig.

Welcome to Hookah Pro I noticed you were new around here!

I would personally stay away from hookahs with that many hoses. The reason I say stay away is because with so many people taking pulls from the pipe it kills the bowls rather quickly and makes it hard to regulate the temperature. Another downside is that if it doesn't have an auto seal it will complicate having multiple people trying to smoke at the same time because if people are not paying attention and don't shut their hose you will draw mostly air in through your hose.

Why don't you tell us what you are looking for in a pipe and we can guide you in the proper direction.

I have a hookaholic one hose hookah right now, I love the peice but I would like something a little bit bigger, I think that anwhere 24 inches and above would be nice. My price range is just anything under 200$. It doesnt need to be anything fancy as I will be going to college soon and I mostly smoke my hookah at parties seeing as how my roomates (parents) dont know I have one, nor would I want them to find out. I am just looking for a nice upgrade, but the shops in my area are all crap and the people know nothing about hookah that work there except that they sell the "best hookahs in town." Sorry I drug this out a little bit. Thanks for the help everyone.

I would highly recommend a Khalil Maamoon hookah. They are great pipes and fit your price range. A nice hose and bowl are a must regardless of what you order.

In your experience what would a good hose and bowl be? I have the hose that came with my current set along with the mod bowl that was with it still on it so I am unsure what would be good to have.

Vortex all the way, entirely for the fact that it's hard to mess up and makes the shisha last longer. You're gonna get a phunnel vs vortex argument!

Hahahaha okay, Id love to hear the major pros and cons with each.
Does the ice make a big difference under the bowl? Like in this hookah?

I know I like the ice in the base.

I'm not qualified to make much of an argument for either, most people would say it's just personal preference though. About half the people on this forum would say buy both... I just like idiot proof, because I'm still fairly new at this.
Chillers make zero difference, ice in the base is equal to a chiller. It's more of a looks thing.

I would do ice in the base to. Mainly because an ice chamber could break and putting ice in the base cant go wrong. As for the bowl.. any bowl will do you good. If you want to have a quick smoke (in the time your parents are gone) then I would suggest an egyptian bowl. This because the tabacco will stay pretty good for a long time in a phunnel or vortex and that would be a waste of tabacco (in my oppinion). For a good rig I to would go for a KM.

I love the Vorex Bowl and The Narbish Hose. The hose you have will work alright but to make your sessions better these hoses have a larger unrestricted draw to them and most are washable. The washable feature is the best part because you never have to worry about tasting previous flavors. They have made my sessions 100 x better.


I personally think that the Chiller hookahs are more of a placebo effect, but the argument can go both ways. I would rather see you spend your money on Jumbo base + Washable Hose + bowl.
