Default Toss up between...

A friend of mine is buying my hookah from me and I am looking at getting a new one, something that is easy to travel around with (I bring my 32 inch Egyptian with me everywhere and its a pain).
I have narrowed it down between these three:
MYA Paragon / Octa (around 99$ ebay)
MYA Obelisk (100$ devils playground)
Stargate (around 100$ assorted sites)
Iam leaning twords the Stargate. but I want something with two hoses and I cant seem to find a Stargate like that,
I have heard of adaptors to make a one hose into two, has any one had any luck with these?

Well like I said I would like something thats portable, and most MYA hookahs come with a case and are threaded. I have also heard good things about them

hookah shisha sells 2 hose stargates at a INSANE price. i dont know of too many who do sell 2 hosers. just H-S. really, i would just buy yourself a single hose stargate. its a great hookah. i love mine quite a bit. yes there are some problems just like every other hookah but personally, i would consider the stargate to be the AK-47 of hookahs. its mean and sturdy, easy to take care of, and hits good.

I bought a new hookah just last week for the hell of it because it was cheap and only 40 bucks. I ended up spending around 70 after I bought a hard case, coals, foils, extra hose, tobacco and an extra bowl fitting so I got a sweet deal after everything but it's threaded and I hate it. I actually just asked my younger brother to lurk his high school for kids looking to buy a hookah. It's 26" and I still hate this thing because the threads don't go all the way down and so I had to put a girl's hair thingy that some wear on their wrist just to keep the seal from letting in air. Non threads are the only ones I like after deal with this and 2 of my other friends hookahs they have gotten.

Well you could always find things around the house, a few thick rubber bands may work, I have also heard of people using wet paper towels

I find that some really thin cardboard, soaked in water, works really well!

Yeah I'm using the hair things girls put in their hair to keep it in a pony tail and it works wonders because it's the exact size/thickness I need. But it's all good because I hope to sell this for a decent price and buy a new one without losing any money. But back to the topic threads are a pain in my books lol.

Honestly if your looking for something thats travel worthy those three just wont cut it. They are shorter yes, but still a big hookah that cant fit in a case is a pain. the best route to go is get a Mya QT. The thing is small, comes in a cage, and hits just as good as most bigger hookahs. I own one and it is GREAT for taking around with you. I used to have it on me at all times, even at school cause of its size.

I recommend one of those, and the price is damn good too

Well I was going to go with the Stargate because it breaks down well and is a nice piece of eye candy

In the near future I am going to get a MYA QT

I would think twice on the MYA QT, but that is just my opinion ...

I smoked out of KoRnKitten's Stargate and it was a nice hookah!
