Default Picking the Right Hookah

I don`t have many to pick from here in Sydney, the largest i can find are 55cm tall, i would love to get a km but my only choice is to order from America, which worries me about travel and cost

So out of the three below which would you pick 1,2 or 3

http://www.barandhookah.com.au/produ...okah&pcode=168

http://www.barandhookah.com.au/produ...ookah&pcode=81

http://www.barandhookah.com.au/produ...okah&pcode=165

Or is there a safe way for me to order a km from somewhere.

the difference between those and a KM is huge lol, but take what you can get I guess. I like the 2nd one for some reason, the base is interesting.

Do yourself a favor and order a good quality Syrian, KM or MZ from an overseas vendor and you will be much happier with your hookah, with shipping they all still fall into your price range and they aren't considered paraphanalia so we have no problems getting them through Aus customs. Any of the active vendors on this board are good choices and they pack things very well. I own a MYA from Bar & Hookah, it was my first one but is just purely decoration now and it actually cost me more than my other 2 both of which smoke alot better.

I like the base on the second one, but all the stems look Chinese.

I agree with the folks above if you have the money to spend get a MZ or KM from a trusted online vendor. If you get an MZ you will most likely get it delivered for less than the price of a KM before shipping.

Take wolfstars advice, he pretty much got it all right there. But if you dont want to deal with customs so much you always can order from europe. i dont know any sites at the moment but there are some that sell KMs and the shipping might be a bit easier on you

Some notes on your 3 choices.

1. They are Mya hookahs.... or are pieced together from the same stuff that Mya parts together.

2. #'s 1 and 3 have descriptions that are not correct. The only steel parts found on those things (if actually true stainless) are the ashplate, ashplate ring and the downstem. The actual stem itself, bowl seat, hose port and purge valve are all made of brass and are chromed. FYI

I like the base on #2.

I would say #2, but I would definitely rather go with a nice KM/MZ.

yeah they are all Myas for sure.

If you want a 1 hose hookah, you need to get an Egyptian.

The middle one is my favorite by far. The white decorations on the plum colored vase go good together.

1 hose + Common Chamber is not a great Mix. Basic Vacuum physics. 1 Hose + Traditional Chamber = Fantastic.

The vases are Mya's. I have the second vase with a different stem. It was a pretty good smoke until I got my MZ.

1 hoses large bohemian hookah

The Large Classic is a beautiful 55cm Single Hose Hookah that contains a thick glass vase that is not easily breakable. The Large Classic is imported directly from Egypt...

A MYA? Imported from Egypt? WTF?!!!
