Default Multiple Hoses?

What do you guys think about them? I know in the past there were problems with air laking though open hoses but they have fixed that with stoppers now. I'm not naming any particular brand but what do you think about the idea of multiple hose hookahs. I had a couple then I just went back to regular single hose hookahs. (acutally the stems broke during cleaning) They only time I would use the multi's were when I'd have too many people over and didn't feel like preparing 1 hookah for everyone. Since mine broke I'm wondering if I should even buy others (different type this time)

I hear Mya has nice multi hose rigs. I like single hosed ones for the smoke, and the social aspect of passing the hose. I don't own a multi hose and or smoked from one so I cant say a whole lot.

im not a fan of the multi hosers. a little too much going on with those. im more of a single hose person because for the most part i smoke by myself and at most 3 people on rare occassions. and yea like ghost is saying, ive heard mya has multi hosers that are awesome.

Personally, I don't like multiple hose hookahs. Passing the hose is like a hookah tradition to me. And with multiple hoses, all people do is smoke smoke smoke, not talking ever. Well, at least that's how it is with me.

I think only 2 hoses is enough (if it doesn't have auto-seal) Anymore than that ain't worth it IMO unless it is a MYA with autoseal

Kilts can be a great excuse to show off some leg. Not like I've tried or anything. Just don't give me the opportunity or you will all see me in one

I'd like to see you in one
and My excuse for showing off some leg is wearing a speedo around.
I pull it off, don't worry,

if you swing a certain way too other things, i knew a kid in high school that would wear a kilt and walk around renegade..... *shivers*

anyways i owned a multi before my QT and it wasn't that nice, it was a pain to get a pull. always felt like i was straining. it had autoseal even but there was too much airflow through ports with it.

stick with a single or a 2 hose max. it just isnt worth getting one more than that.

Plus when theres 4 people pulling on one bowl, It wont be long you'll be setting up again since the tobacco is burning so fast.

My hookah has a double hose with an auto seal. I like it because I can kind of do a side by side comparison of different hoses on my hookah. And it's nice when I have a preference on one type of hose and my friends like another type.

As a side note... my spelling and typing stink at 5 in the morn. I need to go to bed!!!

I like my single hose KM, but on occasion when people are over to watch a movie I will remove the purge valve and rig up another hose, converting it to a two hose.

I also have a MYA 3 hose, which is beautiful! But most of the time I smoke alone or with my girlfriend so I just setup the single hose KM.

I have up to 15 people usually smoking form 1 Mya Acrylic at my house, so i have 4 hose ports and 4 Nammor hoses.
Honestly, passing 1 hose inbetween 15 people isn't gonna fly. And 2 hookahs is too much money and too much trouble.
I have posted about this before, and everyone here loves 1 hosed hookahs.
I have to say this....YOU DON'T GET LESS SMOKE!
Really, you dont', actually that doesn't even make any sense at all. Maybe i should start taking cloud pictures to prove it.

We use a 60 year old multi hose here. no auto seal system. It is a pain in the ass to have to remind people to cap their hoses. But with the amount of people we have smoking it works well.

I have no need for a multiple hose hookah. I wouldn't own one. If I had a bunch of friends who showed up to smopkme all the time they would buy their own hookah or not smoke. Yep I know how I am! LOL

Cool, let's see some pictures of this 60 year old multi hose! I bet it looks pretty sweet.

I like the idea of having a multi-hose hookah when I have someone sitting on the opposite couch. It makes it easier to enjoy the hookah while watching a movie and laying back on the sofas instead of leaning over every few minutes to pass the hose. Most times though I just use the single hose with the hookah.

For you DMC it would be a different story. I'd hook you up bro, but you'd have to use a disposable tip. No way I'm risking my Nammor smelling like pickles or sausage LOL.

Quoted For Truth..

I pretty much only smoke with friends, and I have 4 nammor hoses on one hookah, and still everyone gets plenty of smoke. Billowing clouds of it.. As for burning up your stuff way too fast we have timed it. With a Large Phunnel bowl full of Romman shisha(can't name a flavor cause we always mix) it lasts about 45mins on 3 pieces of an exotica stick broken into quarters. Now if you add another 3 new pieces once the old coals are pretty much gone you can get another 25-30 mins out of it, but it's usually just nicer to change out the bowl. Once you hit 4 people trying to smoke a one hose hookah it gets tedious. People want to hold their hose while they try to convey their profound thoughts, or try and sneak hog it, or just generally take forever, and instead of everyone being able to enjoy the hookah and each other's company it devolves into everyone staring at whoever has the hose waiting for the pass. I have a one hose hookah, but even if it's just me and one other person I still use the 4 hose hookah just cause.
