Default Upgrades!

This is a small upgrade, but I am excited nonetheless. Just got my order for my hookah yesterday. I took a gamble and bought 2 Maya autoseal adapters for my sahara stem and a Nammor hose for my hookah.

Turns out the adapters do fit, thank goodness they were 8 a piece. And the hose also looks awesome, and I haven't used it yet but I'm sure it will hit awesome as well.

So yeup, now I have a 3 hoser with 2 autoseals. Gonna be awesome!

Personally I've had problems with autoseal, but it wasn't the mya version so I can't speak for that. But I agree, when it does work, its awesome, especially with a three hoser where theres a bunch of people (some how arent paying attention to the proper etiquette)

congrats dude, now you have a great party hookah. Just be careful you don't burn through your bowls too quickly.

Shouldn't have a problem with burning through bowls too quickly. I like to use my vortex bowl, and that always lasts like 2 hours plus for me per pack, which is plenty for me.

And yeah, it sucks when autoseal decides to just not work. Which is the reason I went with the Mya version, the ball is removable so I might do what others keep saying and replacing it with a plastic BB. My Sahara autoseal adapter likes to rust, but the bearing is in there permanently. So as you could guess it likes fail regularly.

You say that now but when you have multiple ppl taking draws from it your bowl will be cashed sooner than you think.

Very cool. I've been thinking of the Mya adapters myself. Wasn't sure if they'd work for me or not tho. Thanks for doing the research.

Haha my research was a little risk, the only pre-research I did was look at a mya hookah at the local hookah bar and my hookah separately. Woulda been out $16 bucks if it didn't fit. Glad I could help in assuring you it fits. That's the reason I wanted to post this thread.

I have a Mya Orb with the 3 auto-seal adapters and Nammor hose. When no one else is smoking the auto-seals act like purges, and 4 people can smoke at the same time when there is a crowd.

Yeah from my past experiences, a plastic BB should work just fine with little to no maintenance

Lol, first session with the new setup tonight. Nammor hose is AWESOME! Just feels soo much more right than the standard hose that comes with hookahs. All I will be using from now on. Now what I need are friends that won't go to bed a quarter way through a session.

I really like the plastic that the nammor comes with. Nothing to chip off. I've noticed with the metal tips on other hoses the plating likes to chip. Plus not as much flavor absorption. I also didn't notice the plastic-like taste from the first session with the hose that I've read other people talk about. Also, the adapters have worked like champs so far.

Overall, good hookah investment for sure.

I really didn't like autoseal on my Sahara it kept sticking, felt like the hose was clogged. the ball fell out and I had to put eletrical tape over where the bar was but it was a one hoser so it made no sense to even to have auto seal on its one port.

I can imagine auto seal is nice on a 3 hoser with 3 drunks who cant remeber to cover their hoses.

I am planning on getting a 3 hose KM that has no autoseal, I wonder if these adapters would work in it, where did you order them and does anyone know if they would work?
