Default Which would you choose?

I'm not talking about the price difference but which one do you think would smoke better?

http://nazarhookah.com/index.php?mai...products_id=50

or


http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1643

I want to buy a decent sized hookah below 26 inches and above 19 inches, it needs to smoke well and last long. Any other hookah suggestions would be nice too price should be lower than $100.

Thanks,

-Sabsz

hmm as long as neither are cheaply made, with the right set up they should both deliver... they may differ though, many factors come into play.. airflow between the stem/hose and so on, but which would be a better overall smoke with the perfect set up?... i dont think i can make the call... your 26 inch cap really cuts down your options, however if you're willing to go 2 inches higher... http://www.hookahcompany.com/green_s..._1937_prd1.htm

that should definetly do the job!

If 26" is your limit, H-S has an acrylic in their clearance section.

I just picked one up to keep as my travel rig. It smokes pretty good and you darn near can't beat the price.

I'd go with the arcylic, it's a nice hookah made by mya, and the base is less likely to break.

Mya Acrylic. I own that exact one, and it is amazing. I rant about it all the time. It is a tank, and the downstem is much wider than normal. You can mod it into a 4 hose if you want as well.

Thanks for the help guys. I think I will do some more research before I make my final decision.

Why are those Acrylics on clearance? Just because?

Also would I get all the accessories with that purchase?

These ones.
2 free packs of Premium tobacco
2 FREE rolls of coals
FREE bowl screen
10 FREE mouthtips
5 FREE filters
FREE traditional windcover
FREE carrying bag

I dont think so? but this is still a good deal.

I'd go with the Odyssey...Even though I am a fan of Egyptians more

MYA acrylic bases are much more stronger and won't break as easily

My vote is for the Green/gold genie at Nazar Hookah. The stem in that is the same exact type as mine. It's handmade, Egyptian, and mine is solid as a rock and airtight. The hose is a throw away, but you could pick up a Razan while you were at it and have a nice hitting rig.

(But the Acrylic STEM [not base] will take a Tsunami in it's face before it rusts).

It's very versatile, and you can smoke with a bunch of people (15+) very easily.

With the Clearance Torrent you don't get all those extras. Just tongs and a bowl and grommets. It isn't Auto-Seal either, if that matters to you. It only costs 10 bucks to add 2 more hoses on, that's a great deal. But you won't get tobacco or filters or a screen.. It is most likely on clearance because of some flaw in it's looks. But they still smoke. I would contact H-S to ask what is specifically wrong.

I would probably go with the Egyptian from Mahir ... but the one from H-S is nice too, and you get a lot of bonus stuff ... I like Egyptians

i'd say go with the mya out of those two. it will be able to turn into a multihose hookah as well. the only main drawbacks are the hose and the common chamber.

Dang mines golden and shiny and very easy to clean, cause it's not plated. Actually it's easier to clean than an Egyptian. And those vases are a dime a dozen. . You can honestly stick your finger in the chamber and clean it like that. It's big.

how? what hole does your finger fit in. lol.

the only holes mine has leading to the common chamber are the ones from the very bottom of shaft where the stem screws in, or through the purge valve?

not plated? half of my stem is literally peeling lol.

Like others have said, go with the Mya Acrylic. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Oddesey is an authentic Mya. I think it's an imitation? Regardless I'd rather be safe and just purchase an authentic Mya Acrylic or any other Mya in that price range from the Mya section...
