Thumbs down If you had $185

I have some credit on hookah-shisha + some of my own money and i need a new Hookah and nammor hose. if you were me.... what would you get ??
I was considering the collosus (mya) but am still unsure if my budget can go that high.
Am looking for a good performer + a great looker sooo...
My picks are :
Mya collosus if i can finally spend some more money. (single hose)
Syrian Glyph (single)
Mya paragon (single)
Mya gyro

As you can see am looing for a 30+" hookah and am really open to any suggestions.

Cheers

Skip the Glyph. The collosus and Gyro look promising! Dont forget to use the forum discount.

I still have have some kilos of shisha here that i have to smoke and HS also gave me a 20% code for the next 6 months because i participated in their contest so shisha is no concern. My main concern is the hookah.
i'lprobably go for Gyro + nammor or if i decde tospend a bit more, ill go for the collosus

Am still open tho

The thing is .... Collosus seems so convinient. It can be also used as 28" by only using one part and its only $25 more. which i believe is worth it for such a piece of art.

Scoop, i believe you are unfair. Higher end Myas, and with this i mean everything except minis and acrylics (which are also very good products), are designed almost flawlessly. The expesvive Myas are on par and probably better than those generic Syrians and Egyptians. Also i own 3 traditional hookahs and i i'd like to get something different ths time. AND the collosus is superior in design to any hookah available on the site (and maybe the internet) standing at 40" with that cloisone stem which brakes into pieces and its height can be adjusted. It might cost more but its worth it. And it can also be configured with up to 4 hoses.

Cheers

I've owned several Myas ( the high end ones as well as the junky ones) and I would strongly recommend against buying them. I've never owned one that did not develop serious problems in under a year and frankly they are over priced. I don't have any experience with H-S Syrians but all the Syrians I do own are from J & R and furathookahs.com and all of them have been fantastic. The higher quality Egyptians ( Al Ashrey, KM, Shisha King & MZ) are also fantastic. You should note that H-S sells "Syrians" that are from Lebanon and "Egyptians" that are from Jordan.

If you care about human rights you should not get stuff from China for the simple reason that you'll be supporting state owned companies and communism as well as slavery.

If I had to choose one of those I'd say Gyro, but if it were me I wouldn't do it. I have my heart set on getting a KM. Just gotta wait for PYH to open. I'm so patient! (sarcasm)

I had a Gyro and it developed a bunch of troubles in under a year and even before then it never anything exceptional. I gave it away rather then try to make into something worth hanging on to.

i litterally just bought the glyph hookah, like 10 minutes ago. ive heard nothing but good things about syrians. the gyro looks cool but i think the balls look a little lame and its not worth the extra money. you should get the glyph in a one or two hose with a nammor, mine just came today, and then buy something else, non hookah related, on yourself. maybe take a hot girl out on a date, dinner and a movie. good luck with your decision

You support that guy the same way a whore monger supports a kid kidnapped 14 year old Russian girl chained to a bed in Israel when "rents her services." Supporting slavery makes more money for the slaver and more money for the Communist state allowing them to expand. In the end you will often get stuck with a shit product anyway. Even if the product turns out ok you can get top quality stuff from the Arab world for less then a mya.

you never realized that most of the products you use are made in china? hating commies is fun and all but its irrational to point fingers.

most chinese people are great people who are merely born into a messed up country, thats no reason to go on a rampage against them and their businesses.

Communism works on paper but then again so does the Money Market system AND Democracy. Too bad none work in the real world as well as they do on paper. Besides we live in a Corporate run country that will rely on the bank rolls of companies like ENRON until someone else makes more money than us with a different method.
-It's impractical to think that we could be completely self sufficient as a country.
-The Chinese economy is on the rise while the dollar drops everyday!
-The real answer is global diplomacy NOT policing the world. Until we can learn to accept other peoples cultures, beliefs, and ideas we will be deemed to repeat the same mistakes that history documents us making in our countries past.

Now to move on with the blending of cultures and ideas...

LET'S HOOKAH!

Get the collosus because it sounds like if you don't spend the extra $25 now, you're going to repeat this same dilema the next time you want to buy a Hookah.

Get your excalibur now and don't waste time or money on filler!
