Another topic in the series....

What style do you prefer?

Egyptian, Syrain, Modern (Chinese or MYA), or some other type out there.

Personally, I prefer the Egyptian style or Syrian. Both for looks and function. A well made E or S style should last, look good, and smoke like a champ.

Moderns perform well, providing they are made well. I personally don't like the overall look of Moderns. I like traditional styling.

Haven't smoked any of the "fancier" styles. (Iranian, Bohemian, ect)

Ohhh I love the traditional Egyptian style! I love my KM! I can't wait to get another one! Which reminds me, I need to put up one of my smaller hookahs up for sale...

Cheers!

I really admire the simplistic beauty of traditional Egyptian and Syrian hookahs, but I always find myself leaning towards the bohemian side, and more modern hookahs.
I may just make a hybrid haha ^_^ like a hookanstein.

I love my mod hookahs.

With that said I love my mya's and my km.

I guess it would go in this order, My mod (stargate) , then my KM, then my Myas then my egyptians.

In theory I like modern, daring designs but in practice i've found mod rigs have mediocre build quality and frankly, they don't look very interesting but drab and industrial. I suppose if some one could take Medusa styling and make a high quality rig that would be pretty exciting but I wouldn't bet on it.

Traditional narghiles have much more appeal to me provided they are well built. While some good rigs come from Egypt i's have to say that Syrian and Lebanese rigs are much more appealing in terms of style and craftsmanship.

In the end, looks come in a distant second to functionality and durability

Nothing like the nostalgic allure of a beautifully crafted Syrian or Egyptian IMO
