Yep, that's how I feel. You might get style points for fancy tongs, but in the end the just pick up a coal.

yes, they are the best tongs!
my mya tongs are both crap! the nargilem tong is good for taking tobacco, but you cant hold the coal with it (same with the mya).
and: the mya tongs cost about 3 here, nargilem 4 and the standards are about 1

I have a pair of the 2nd MYAs in PCServe's post, the get used to clean out the bowl and sometimes if I cant wash my hands, I will use them to pack the bowl. The last ones in PCServe's post are the standard ones I use for the coal and I have two pairs of those.

I use the H-S discount tongs as well (they were like a dollar i think.) They don't look too great, but they grip a lot better than my myas. The myas seem to have a bit of a loose grip.

dammit, i knew i'd get called out on that one.
i thought of saying that when I witnessed my father in law pick 2 rolled coals up after his other daughter tripped over his hookah, knocking the coals on the rug. He did it 1 at a time, very quickly, in a panic, something i'll never forget seeing. I couldn't stop laughing for awhile, there were tongs somewhere but he wanted to save the rug from getting too burned.
