No, just as with anything in life.

I would suggest an egyptian hookah that you like the style of to start with. Khalil Mamoon is a great brand and makes good quality pipes.

If you want something a little smaller, I have heard good things about the Mya QT and Bambino.

i have to agree with him here. the KM's are one of the best single hosed hookahs out there. However they are tall, running at about 24 to 30 inches depending on what you pick. But if you want something small, around 14 inches go for a QT or bambino. I own a QT and it smokes great. Better than some hookahs ive smoked out of before

Go for a good one for your first hookah! I would recommend a Khalil Mamoun or a Magdy Zidan. They are both beautiful and smoke well ...

If you want a smaller hookah, I suggest a 21"-22".

Hookahcompany.com has HUGE selection of these hookahs! Check it out :P

If you mind the wait, wait till Pimp Your Hookah opens back up. They should be back some time this month.

i have read some of the forums and many people say getting a pipe bigger than 26 is going to get the best smoke. so thats what im going for. i have decided i want a 2 hose and will be buying a nammor hose to go with it. where is the cheapest place to get a km?

It would be a better experience if you got something nice and not waste money on a piece of junk like my friend did. I just so happen to have her hookah till I get my own. Just got to wait till PYH is open

KM doesn't make a 2hose. If you want a two-hose, I suggest a pharaoh from Hookah-shisha. However, I prefer a 1hose, and as long as there isn't 7 people smoking at once, a 1hose should be fine

If you want, you can look into the clearance hookahs and hookah-shisha.com. some of those hookahs are trash, but they make good first rigs to build your collection from. If i had to pick one hookah to buy, it'd definitely be a KM. You can't go wrong with them. They have sexy hoses too:]

i think that egyptians in general can't be converted to 2 hose. I think KM can be only one...Unless you get one that is 2 hosed (which I have never seen b4)

They can't necessarily be converted, but from what i heard you can buy a syrian/mod hose adapter and plug it in to the purge valve's hole. Do you have a strong need for a two hose? If you're only smoking with 2-3 people, use a one hose, it's brings a social aspect into smoking, as opposed to 2-3 hoses, where people just puff away. Plus, 1 hose hookahs give a lot more smoke too.

This the one I bought. I didn't want to get a piece of shyt. It's my first one and I knew if I bought a cheap one I'd regret it and have to spend even more money later to buy a better one. You'll be better off buying a good one from the start. Smart choice on your part.

Also, if you want to smoke with more than one person with a single hose and you don't want to trade spit...they make plastic tips to put on the end of the hose. Pain in the ass to put it on and take it off every time you pass but it can work.

I agree, and to answer your hose question I'm pretty sure thats a KM hose which is different then a Nammor. I also think the KM hoses are leather so there not washable. The Nammor hoses are 100% washable.

[LIST][*]70" Egyptian Hose[*]Clay Hookah Head[*]Gaskets[*]Cleaning Brush[*]Tongs[*]1 Dozen Plastic Tips[/LIST]As far as the hose goes...I have no idea. I can't rate it b/c I won't have it until Friday but I did buy an extra hose.
http://www.hookahcompany.com/mya_hoo..._1300_prd1.htm

It's good to have more than one hose, so I'm told. If you smoke mint and you don't want everything tasting like mint then you need another hose but I know some people don't care.

Here's my order on the forum so you can see what I bought.

Sambooka helped me out as far as suggesting different things to purchase. Hope this helps.
