Sup skiflow! Post an introduction for us in the new members introduction area! It's becoming the "IN" thing to do .. lol

Onto your question ... The Tri-Metal KM is beautiful! I don't think you could go wrong with any KM, they all ROCK! Any KM would be my number one choice ... I LOVE my KM Amer and it only cost me $60!

You should be able to find a REALLY nice hookah for the amount of money you are willing to spend. Some other ones to consider are the Magdy Zidans ... great Egyptian hookahs for a reasonable price. Either one of these brands will put you well under what you are looking to spend and leave you a little room for some coals, and shisha!

The MYA Collosus is nice too, very beautiful, but a bit above your price range ... although you could check out some of the other hookahs they have and possibly get a discount through Hookah Pro to put you in at the price you are looking at!

My advice would be to look around a bit more, find about 3 hookahs you are interested in and post them up in a thread so you can get some opinions.

Hope that helps to get you started on your quest for "your" ultimate hookah!

(if I had to choose, between the above two, I would say the KM)

Thanks a lot Sambooka! i don't have my own credit card so do you think that they would sell these hookahs at a smoke shop? Iv'e been all over the internet these past few days looking at all the sites. There are so many! I have a lot of questions since im new to hookah and haven't done it for very long so i don't want to bombard you with questions. lol.

There is a local place here in houston that has MYA's but its a very limited selection none are ones I'd like to purchase. Its not likely you'll find one but you may just so happen to get lucky.

You may be able to send a money order? If a vendor is willing to do that for you? Call around and find out, once you know which ones interest you.

Cheers!

I vote a KM or MZ, unless of course you have an eye for a Syrian.

You can go to walmart and get a "money card" Its like $2 and you can add money to it like a gift card but it can be used like any other visa. That way you can make a safe online purchase.

If I were you, I'd wait for PYH to open up again, and get any KM from them. They offer some amazing customer service, and bilal is a nice guy.

For your price range, I would suggest a Mya all the way... You can't go wrong with a high end Mya...

Not a whole lot actually since they all do the same thing. Mya's are Chinese, Syrian and Egyptian are styles of hookahs.

Egyptian and Syrian hookahs are hand made. Chinese hookahs are made in a factory.

Some people say Syrians are best. Some people say Km's are best. Some people say Mya's are best. Personally, If it looks good and smokes like a beast, I'll buy it. for price, I'd definitely go with a KM. Not expensive and smokes like a dream.

I like how easy it is to clean my KM ... that is a big plus, since I clean it after every use.
