Default Is this a good choice?

I've been introduced to Hookah through a friend a little while back, and I've been meaning to get my own. I have some graduation money to burn, and while most of it is going towards further restoring and tweaking my '87 535i, I've reserved around $100-150 for a Hookah and some of the essentials to get me started. A friend sent me to Sahara Smoke as he had a good experience with them. They seem to have a good reputation here as well. I had my sights set one of these in red http://saharasmoke.com/store/catalog...h-p-16421.html


I chose the Legend mainly because I liked the way it looked. The three hoses are an added convenience, but not totally necessary. There doesn't seem to be much info on the boards about this particular model, but it seems to fit the requirements for a good product.

However, browsing the forums I see "KM" and "Mya" thrown around, along with "MZ". These are manufacturers, correct? From what I've gathered they seem to be fairly high quality. Would it be wiser to go with one of the above brands with my money? Or would the difference be negligible?

id probably get a 1 hose.

khalil mamoon or magdy zidan are manufactures. both of them are good and id probably get one of them over a 2 or 3 hose one.

IMO unless you really have to get a 3 hoser. I would go with a single hose, like scoop said.

one hose is good to pass around for 2-3 people. after all, hookah is about friendship and sharing!

That's a nice choice if you plan on a lot of people smoking with you. Look for one of their single hose hookahs though. You can always use the plastic mouth tips if your worried about mouth cooties.

Definitely agree on one hose, and I have 2 Sahara smoke hookahs, a persian stem and stainless like this, the stainless is definitely what to go for. They come apart in... probably 4 pieces for one that size and makes cleaning the hookah itself very easy. I'm personally not a huge fan of the bell vase, but that is only a matter of preference, so no biggy there. I'd say just about anything you get from SS (provided it's not a genie (the tiny ones), which doesn't seem to be what you are interesting in anyways) would be a fine choice, but unless you have say 10+ people smoking with you on a regular basis I wouldn't go with 3 hoses. I have as many as 8 people over at a time, and unless I have 6 or more, I don't need to bring out my second hookah.

Be sure to check out Sambooka's discount code thread, I think I saw something about 15% off there.

Like everyone else mentioned above get your multi hose or 1 hose accordingly to how many people are gonna be smoking with you on average. If you decide to get a one hoser try to snag yourself a Syrian. They look better than egyptians and smoke just as well :P.

i personally have 2 syrian glyphs from hookah-shisha and they are very very solid hookahs. traditional chamber, full brass, cannot say anything bad about them. the 1 hose glyph is a looker and with the new bohemian decorated bases mmm mmm.
