Default New hookah??

Ok hookahpro so i have this little room in my basement that i smoke hookah in there is a couch and a few lazy boys with the hookah on a table in the middle. Only problem is it is the hookah is like a two foot chinese thing and the hoses are pretty damn short. so it gets knocked over alot cause of the hoses. but im just thinking i want to buy a new hookah, i want it to be three hoses but they need to be long. can you guys tell me some good ones for around 150 or 200? thanks, my carpet will be thankful.

I would say go with a MYA, they have a big selection of them on Hookah-Shisha. All of them are upgradeable to 4 hoses and there are many different heights available. Here's a link to the site: http://www.hookah-shisha.com/c-241-m...y-hookahs.html Hope that helps you out in finding a new hookah.

go with a 2 hose KM. no reason you need 3/4... 2 is good enough.

you can get pretty much any hookah you want for 200

I'd say go with a MYA, which is odd because I always recommend KM's. While a KM is a better hookah, it sounds like having lots of people using your hookah at once is important, the problem with the km's is that they don't have any ball bearings where the hoses connect, so you need to be either covering then end of or using all of the other hoses for you to be able to draw out of it. I find that when I have friends over this is a hard concept to convey, and even when they do it's very easy to forget to cover so it can be frustrating. That is why you should go w/ a 2 or 3 hose mya.

Do you need/want a multiple hose hookah or will a one hose work? AF Large Solid, 36", $125, single hose only, though. Just got one and it is absolutely amazing. Smoke happy.

if you need the 3 hose definately go for the mya. id suggest the artoo or threepio. same hookah just ones silver and ones gold. they are auto seal hose ports and they have an acrylic base so when your clumsy friends knock it over the base wont shatter. and if it does break the base they are dirt cheap to replace. heres a link:

Another thing to keep in mind.. at a 200 dollar limit you can buy nice long hoses separately from the hookah.. that way you know you are getting quality hoses. Like most people said.. if you really want another multi-hose.. mya is a good route.. or a standard egyptian is great too. (i have had a 2 hose egyptian for about a year and a half.. and if i polished it.. you would not be able to tell it had ever been used).

well a few hoses would be better but i guess that a one hoser would work. do you guys know if they have ones that are about 3.5 or 4 feet tall. im thinking i want a really big one that won't tip and looks like a work of art. if its more than 200 that isnt too big of a deal

Get a Mya Gyro. One hose version will run you $164 bucks. It can go to 4 though. Get a couple of gold colored auto-seals, and a couple of different style cloissone hoses. You don't have to add it all at once. I like having the purge valve, but on Mya they kind of suck. I have mine set at 3 hoses with purge, but 4 hoses is easy to do. I would go with red instead of blue. The blue Gyro is really more of a gray. It smokes awesome, and is a work of art.

Base is that blue. Stem is more grayish. You will be happy. It's basically a mini Collossus.

With the standard mya bowl it is 29 inches. I added a phunnel bowl which brought it up to around 31 inches. It's a perfect height in my opinion. Tall, but not to tall where it is easily nocked over. The glass is extremely high quality, and the etchings are absolutely remarkable. The stem is decorated with grapevines. I think if you get a 3 hose version right off the bat its like $225. I wouldn't do that though. Get the one hose version with the grapevine patterned hose. Then add the flower patterned and striped cloissone hoses seperately, so everyone has their own distinct awesome looking hose. Like I said, the gold auto-seal adaptors are also a nice touch. The fourth hose is all dependent if you want the purge valve or not. I would go with red though too make sure everything completely matches.

this is going to sound really dumb but how do you get it up to 4 hoses when it only has two things on it (hose port and purge valve)?

Look at this review on the Collossus.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdTgFHJpY94

The Gyro is a little taller than set he has there. He removed one section, but the Gyro has two stem pieces and one ball as opposed to the two balls and one stem he has there(sounds gay, I know). Like he said though, the Mya hoses draw tight. Part of another reason why I would get the one hose version to start with, and add hoses as you see fit. Though they draw a little tight, they are pretty. The artwork is very high quality though, and I can assure you that you will like it.

It has four. The two other ports have screw in type seals on them that are small. They don't show well on the picture.

not a dumb question. a lot of hookahs dont do it like mya. they use little screw out port blockers. there 4 ports on the common chamber. the hose port, purge, and two blockers on a one hose. the four hose has four hose ports and no blockers and no purge valve.

I've never ordered from Sahara. Look at the reviews on them before you buy. They have nice looking hookahs, but I keep reading that they rust out quick. Keep investigating, and don't rush into anything

The hookah will come with hose grommets (aka rubber seals).
As for a hose, I suggest getting a washable one, they are thick gauge and most are VERY long.
