Default Econo Mya gelato vs mya qt

I'm looking at buying either a Mya econo gelato http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-3515-...se-hookah.html , or a Mya qt. I have heard amazing things about the qt but the gelato doesn't look bad at all. On h-s, the reviews are the same.

So, which do you suggest?
Does the vortex bowl fit on both?

Thanks!

I'm gonna be an a-hole and suggest neither.
For only a few bucks more, you can get an MZ. Nicer lookin' rig, too.

for my first hookah i purchased the econo gelato... still smoking it til this day due to easy light set up, easily stored compared to other bigger hookahs. I have smoked manjaco's mya qt and they are pretty much the same in terms of cloud smoke and what not. both decent prices after the discount through hookah pro.

Gonna say I prefer the Gelato over this rig. Not a big fan of the design you suggested. From a mearly astetic view I would prefer to get the Mya cause I am not a big fan of themore traditonal lookin rigs.

To each their own. I've alwys thought the Gelato was shaped too much like a 'pasture pastry'.

I think it's supposed to be like a scoop of ice cream, hence the name gelato lol.

As for the MZ, how does it compare production-wise?
I'm fairly new to hookah so I don't know much about this brand.

MZ is a handmade pipe from the heart of Egypt.

MYA is a sweatshop pipe from China.

The MZ is handmade and may be a little rough around the edges, but it'll smoke better and last longer than that MYA, I guarantee it.

The Egyptians have 500 years of hookah-building experience, the Chinese have about ten. It shows.

Haha, that works. I'm looking at doing the MZ now.
Just a side note, I might end up purchasing a vortex and diffuser from hookah-shisha.com, and was wondering, does at least one of the heba diffusers fit onto the MZ?

The diffuser might need some modification to fit over the nut at the bottom of the downstem.

That said, unless you're watching movies with the volume down low or something, it's kind of a pointless accessory.

The diffuser can be easily fit over the nit by making some small slits in the rubber around the hole. and i mean small slits. then get it soft by putting it in hot water and you should be able to work it on. im not sure about on mz's but on my syrian the big diffuser dosent fit in the base

Ah ok, good to know.

I think, that come next paycheck, I'll end up purchasing that MZ, a nammor hose, and some shisha for sure.

You will need the to use the small heba diffuser, and also make some cuts on the softer rubber top for it to fit the nut. Actually looking at mine, you might have to do a bit more than that. The nut at the end of the stem is pretty much as big as the rubber top of the diffuser.

Econo also has the cheaper stem. I've heard good things about the QT, haven't heard much about the Econo...
