Default Is there any point to a large hookah collection?

I dream of having 4-6 hookahs lined in my closet so that I may pick what I wish to smoke . People that I know, however, think that it is the dumbest thing they have ever heard. What are yall's opinions on a large hookah collection? Is there any reason to have one that consists of many hookahs? How do you pick which one to smoke?

Well, it's just like collecting most things. There's not really a point, you just like to do it. Whats the point in collecting stamps?

Yeah I agree. people collect cars too, you cant drive 3 cars at once sadly. But yet they still have many cars :P

Plus hookahs are great decorations. Just put a hookah in a room and you make out with some killer Feng Shui 8) curtains are so over-rated

I think it is just to have I guess lol. That way, yuou can have a huge selection of baccy to choose from. But downside: you'll run into tobacco you end up buying and not like in the end....which means you have to throw it away. Trust me, I know from experience

A lot of the tobacco in my sig has been thrown away.

Well I have multiple hookahs and they all smoke differently. So I dont think its a dumb idea at all.

I personally own 4 hookahs at the moment. I don't think it's dumb at all. I have them because I consider them my own personal collection of smoking pleasure. I could give a rat's ass what anybody else thinks of the situation. You shouldn't worry about what people think of you or what they think of your hobby. If you want to have 6 hookahs, then by all means, buy 6 and enjoy them to the fullest. If I went back to my first days of smoking hookah, I'm 100% certain I would have ended up with the four hookahs I have now regardless.

I simply like collecting them. Just like many people like collecting expensive sports cars. They can't possibly use each one everyday. But they collect them for whatever personal reason they have. It might seem pointless to others who don't have the same interest or the money to do so. But like I said, in the end you have to do what makes you happy, screw everyone else...

Collecting hookahs is like collecting basketball cards. Your collection can always be bigger

it could be considered a recreational thing. collect them for the sake of collecting, make good conversation starters, that kinda thing. but like husky said they will smoke different, have one for your mood, less smoke more smoke, multiple people, one person, ect. they can have a use for everything

I dunno...If I had the money...I'd collect any hookah I wanted to just to have I guess. I'd also have a whole messload of of AF and starbuzz just to try out and everything. That way, I'll never get bored with any flavor

Ehhh but collecting is gonna be a lot of money....Maybe like $300-500 and that's a lot of money on hookah

if i had the money i would just pimp one really big one out to the max. theres no need for more than 2. unless your a huge hookah buff and need to express yourself thru a collection of hookahs, then by all means more power to ya.

I dont think it is a dumb idea at all. All my Hookahs smoke different. I have 5 now and just ordered a KM tonight. So I should have 6 before the weekend. Also I have many different styles of hookahs. MYAs and Syrians and a Afzal. KM is comin this week.

i would personally have at least....5 or so hookahs when the money and space comes lol. one for every brand available out there so i can officially say ive tried them all and i can make an opinion. but if anything that would be the real incentive to

I'm the same way, between me and my girl

1 pickup
4 cars
1 bike

as far as hookahs I've got two right now, a three hose chinese, and KM "on the rocks". Ones for group sessions other is for solo. I'm in the market for a QT and something huge and something around 22-24in. So in the end I hope to have say five pipes. Just depends on how often you smoke, who you smoke with. This friday me and a friend are having a party and he's got three rigs as well so we'll have five going at once!

Sure. Especially if you have really crazy standards. For example, I have two right now, and the new one a KM, while nice, it's still not as pretty as I wanted it to be . So in this nutty-hunt, I will buy more, with the intent to find the ultimate, which I won't find. I know I won't be happy until I CNC one out of titanium or something exotic.

Variety is the spice of life. If one is good, four should be awesome!

I collect people. *underlines husky* Hmmmmm....

lol anyway, I dont see a point to a large hookah collection if your just the normal smoker. I would rather have two pipes, for when friends come over. Large collections are only good for those who collect them. You don't use it its just gonna go ugly and break down.
Nothing lasts forever, use it for its purpose until it falls apart. Your memories will keep it new.

Not a dumb idea at all...I get enjoyment out of searching for a new hookah to buy getting it in and seeing how it smokes...every hookah smokes different and there are so many designs out there...I own three and cant wait to get another..I personally would get bored using the same hookah everytime
