Default What should my next hookah be?

Thinking a buying a new hookah next month. I was wondering what brand and style you would recommend.

I'd like to spend maybe $75 tops, preferably less. I don't want one too small but I don't need one too big.

So, what brands and styles do you suggest?

Also, for that price, can I get a good one with multiple hoses, or one that rotates? Those aren't required, but may be a nice feature.

Thank you!

They don't exist. Rotators and multi-hoses are gimmicks and just don't work as well as as a single hose pipe.

Head on over to hookahstore.com and look at a Khalil Mammoon Carnival. Like this one:

http://www.hookahstore.com/hookahs-k...kah-p-509.html

They have other colors too.

Use your discount code (Found in the vendors area of the forum) and knock of 20%, which will bring the pricetag down to about $72.

Hookahstore is a well-respected vendor around here with a great reputation. He'll throw in everything you need to start smoking right out of the box (Except the water )

Khalil Mammoon is also very highly regarded as one of the best-smoking pipes in the world. And that is a great price for one.

I don't know your preferences on hookah designs and stuff but the brand to choose is a Khalil Mammoon. I give it high praise. Nothing but happy smokes!

I'm not sure what colors you like and dislike but this looks like a wonderful pipe. And after you use your discount code it will be in your price range. hookahstore.com does a wonderful job and will take care of you.

I would stay away from the minis as they tend to be much lighter and not support a larger hose.
Also Alvin has some Darwish's that are a great price and man forum members have nothing but good things to say about them!
Good luck and hope you find a great hookah.
Hookahstore is awesome!

Hookahstore is a GREAT vendor to buy from. I got my Syrian and my buddy got his KM; I would def suggest them as a vendor to order from. Some of their Syrians are priced at 79.99 so with 20% off it'd be ~64$, something to at least take a gander at.

Auto-seal pipes tend to rust shut or develop air leaks in the hose ports, sometimes very quickly, sometimes not at all, either way it's a gamble on a cool-sounding but ultimately unnecessary feature.

Same with rotators. They tend to be more likely to tip over due to the High center of gravity, combined with the stem moving about as it turns. The lounge I ran a few years ago had several rotators (A couple chinese ones and some Egyptian ones) and every one of them was plagued with problems from day one. Additionally, the bearings that cause it to rotate all seized up eventually and failed to function.

In short, there may be a few examples of these types of pipes out there that have worked well over the long term, but it seems to me that they are unnecessary features that tend to complicate the smoking process by being more prone to failure in the long term. When you make a product with a sub-par or pointless feature touted as a selling point, well, in marketing we call that a gimmick.

Any good mechanic will tell you that having less moving parts makes a more reliable machine, and it shows: The most well-respected and reliable pipes on the market (Khalil Mamoons, Magdy Zidans, Nours, Al Fakhers) all follow the same basic design principle, a pipe to bring the smoke to the water, another pipe to bring it out again, and a simple release valve. Less parts to rust, break, seize up, or lose means a more reliable overall system. And it shows through in the reputation that these pipes enjoy in the community.
