That is a nice looking order ...

I would suggest AF Mint
Starbuzz, White Peach (instead of peaches and cream)

and I would suggest the two hose Collosus, since they have a nice plug, and autoseal system. You can have an extra hose port should you need it in the future

Cheers!

AF apple (not double apple) has been my favorite lately. Also, they have a good apricot too.

AF Mint, Apple and Strawberry i can get locally so didnt include them in my order.
Sambooka I had a doubt for the two (peaches and cream or White peach) thanks for the advice.

Am also worried for the base of the hookah. Since it will be shipped to Europe am worried about breaking during trasportation. I'll send them an email about it but you can never be too sure. Is it thick enough or does it break easily?

Cheers

It is a really thick vase, and heavy! Just tell them you are from HP and Europe, and ask for special care packaging, and don't forget the discount code hookahpro25 ... they wrap it up really good though, see my vendor review of them on youtube, it was done completely without them knowing I was going to do a review, so what you see is what you get! There are a lot of the vendor video reviews out there now that were a copy of what I was doing, and are not really a true anonymous vendor review of shipping/packaging/service .. like the couple original ones I did.

Just full or half are your options. You can always add more hose ports, so whichever works best for you. keep in mind when you're paying that extra bit for the 2 hose model you're paying mostly for another hose. If you already have hoses you like you can just go to the accessories section and get addition hose ports instead.

Yeah but an exrta hose port would cost you $8 so you get a cloisone hose for 7 bucks?? Thats a steal.

Cj, the one you are looking is the regular. If you choose from the dropdown "autoseal" it will become $8

Yeah only full or half, setup on the Collosus, UNLESS you get creative and make your own center stem, take a look at my vid, you could make a center stem of a third length and use that too! Hope that makes sense ...

Great review of the MYA Collosus CJ! I want to comment on the review here, since it is not allowed in the actual review thread ...

Great descriptive review, and pics of the parts! Our two reviews should help shishaholic with his choice

Cheers!

Shishaholic asked some questions that I had to go take pictures for, but I'll edit that in after lunch. Thanks Sambooka for having a forum where we can do reviews like this, and answer/ask questions, instead of blindly going, "oh that looks purty ill buy that" and being screwed.

That is one of the MAIN reasons of this site, to have unbiased reviews from hookah smokers .. so people can get honest reviews from real members! That is why I am trying to get the review section bumped up! so we can have other opinions on products we have interest in. and base our decision off what others think ... if we want someone else's opinion, you can take an opinion or leave it, your choice, but at least they are there for ya

Sweet order man! I've never tried the collossus but it appears to be exactly the same as Gyro with an added stem section. That said, I would definitely reccommend going with a two hose, you will get plenty of smoke with two people pulling at the same time and there is very little competition - and the auto-seal function is pretty awesome. And the Nammor is a good add-on, cause the mya hoses that come with it kinda suck - although they are really sexy.

As for tobbacco, with the AF i tried the Sweet Melon recently and it was pretty good! If you like a watermelonish type flavor, you might want to try a 50g pack

Sambooka - The base I got with my Gyro is the same one that comes with the Collosus! Extremely heavy and sturdy and the same exact pattern. Maybe they sent me the wrong one by accident, but my hookah looks exactly like CJ's in his pictures - only his has one more section it looks like, and it is red and mine is blue.

I agree! It's really sexy and smokes almost as good as it looks (with a nammor) which is really saying something. Speaking of which, thanks for your review on the collosus, that's why i got bought the nammors with my gyro - really makes a big difference!
