Default Multiple Hoses...

Just wondering if a 2+ hose hookah is worth not having to pass a hose around. It's not really that big of a deal to me. In your opinion is it worth it. For example if I was to get a MYA. How do multiple hoses smoke, differ from a one hose, etc...

-Thanks

a friend and I use a 2 hose egyptian all the time. as long as all your seals are tight, the smoke is the same as a 1 hose.

from what I have seen the smoke with 2+ is not the same as one. My hookah was airtight and it was 2 hosed and my friends and I smoked it at a party. I compared 2 hoses to one and I realized that one hose gave off way more smoke.

But, if you smoke with a lot of people lol you have no choice but to get a 2+ hose hookah

MYA actually has a really good setup for this. On some of their hookahs they sell as a single hose hookah. The have predrilled holes that are closed with small bolts. You can remove these bolts and add on adapters to make it a 2 or 3 hose. They sell the adapters separately. I can show some close up pics if you are interested. This is the closest thing to having the best of both worlds as when you are just using one hose the rest of the hookah is completely sealed up.

As long as people don't inhale at the same time it's usually fine.

people will tell you it effects the smoke. But the amount of hoses in no way affects the density of your smoke. That's just stupid.

What in fact DOES affect the smoke density (aside from coals, heat management, the tobacco you use) is the type of chamber you have, and whether the chamber has a plate with holes in it. Also, if your smoking buddies aren't plugging and you have no Auto-Seal, then that'll affect it, but duh.

Common Chambers will never smoke as well as Traditional Chambers; and when the smoke has to pass through a plate with tiny holes in it leading to the common chamber the flow is constricted even more, so you have a tighter pull and relatively less smoke.

+1

I made a four hose hookah because I usually smoke with friends, since I made it and I understand how hookahs work, it smokes great. Multi-hose really depends on the how it's made. My experience with auto seal is that they suck. So I guess keep that in mind.

Multi hose hookahs are where its at for me. Granted you will have trouble if 3 people are all pulling at the same time, but that's just common sense. Even most multihose hookahs don't seem to be designed to have 3+ people pulling at once. The novelty is that you don't have to deal with passing, and waiting for the hose to go around the circle and back to you. When you arent passing around a hose you also have less chance of accidently knocking over your hookah.

If you go multihose I would recommend an Auto-Seal system. If not(at least with my friends) you'll be reminding them to plug their hose every 2 minutes.

My friend has a egyptian 2 hoser. I have only smoked out of it 2-3 times, but out of these experiences none of them were bad. It is kinda convienient not having to pass that hose all around.

I use a 2-hose here in Iraq. The Iraqis are hesitant to ask me to pass my hose (when I smoke a 1-hose). So I end up smoking all by myself. Getting a 2-hose solves that problem. Also, when two people are drawing on the separate hoses, twice as much air flows through the tobacco, which results in an easier draw, and cooler smoke.

If I want to smoke alone, I just plug in a rubber stopper.

I like it so much, I just ordered a three-hose. I will try it with the guys, and report back!

I agree if your set up is all sealed up then it will smoke well
