Default I'm saveing up guys!

What's up everyone? cloudyboi here, just trying to decide on a new hookah to purchase. I own a mya bambino and it hits alright but to tell you the truth I'm starting to get a little hookah envy from all the others I've seen. It's gona be a while so I have plenty of time to make up my mind "I need to save up some cash first". But when I do purchase it I really wana go all out. I'm looking for any suggestions guys!

Cheers!

may I be so bold as to suggest a fine Syrian narghille. They smoke as well as anything (if not better) and are much easier on the eyes! here's a link. http://www.*************.com/shop/index.php?cPath=30_39

I am also a syrian owner. I don't own one from Chrnoichookah.com, but I do own one. My hookah performs with the best of them, and is way durable. I have been using 2-3 daily since feb. and it has held up GREAT. Not a flaw with it. I would be so bold as to suggestion as well. We are proud Syrian owners .

All depends on what you are looking for - an in the open rig (meaning it can't be hidden = too big), a smaller durable rig for traveling or another small but know producer. KM's, Syrians & MZ's are large, but excellent rigs. Mid-range (60-100$) MYA with a case are good durable traveling rigs, and you already own one of the better smaller rigs.

Depending on how much you wish to spend and some of the above items, I would offer that a good 26-28" KM or Syrian may be something you look into.

MZ's are great IMO. I own a Perpetual River and it is beautiful and draws effortlessly. If you have $50-65 to spend MZ is the way to go.

KM, MZ, or a Syrian. And thats about it. If storage is a concern get another Mya, because most of them have a hard carrying case. I own a MZ and it beats the hell out of my Mya.

I own one of those Syrians from John at CH. And I couldn't be more happy. Although, the only bad thing is I can't compare my Syrian to a KM or MZ or anything. But I would highly recommend a Syrian.

I'd recommend not getting a KM (the old ones are good...But the new ones I have heard are made of not so good material compared to the old ones)

I'd say to get a MZ or a Syrian. But then again, its all self-preference.

A friend that used to be into the hookah gave me a massive foot tall vase. Do you guys think it would be cheaper to just find a stem to fit it? Are would buying a whole new rig base and all be the cheaper wrought to go?

Cheers!

Looks just like my vase, paint and all. I'd indulge myself and buy a whole new hookah.

I'd say just to buy a good egyptian stem with it. Really, it doesn't have to be a high branded hookah, as long as it smokes and purges great and it doesn't rust...Who cares! lol

Like my stem broke a while back for my 22" egyptian. I still have the vase and its in good shape still. for $20 more, I can buy a whole new stem instead of dishing out $40+ for a whole new good hookah

I really don't know any good places to buy a new stem from, are even what size I would need. A link to a few good websites and a suggested size stem would be very helpful thanks guys!

Cheers!

I know saharasmokeco has some stems. Social smoke has some stems as well. Those are the only two I know of. They are decently priced. I dunno where you could find a KM or MZ stem.

where did you hear this?
do you have proof? because my new KM that I got from John @ ******* hookah is VERY well made and it compares in quality to my On the rocks I just got.


I have 2 KMs and one Syrian I got in Iraq, and I'll tell you, they all smoke GREAT!

do yourself a favor though and as tempting as it may seem to get a cheap hookah, DO NOT cheap out. it will be more $ spent when you buy a cheap hookah then go back and buy a nice one

Either way its hearsay. I don't believe what people say until I experience it first hand. Too bad I will never purchase an egyptian to find out . I am siding with Rex. He owns one of the new KM's and compares it to his old one and says they are both excellent quality rigs.

there's absolutely nothing wrong w/the new KMs.In fact, at least visually they are far superior to the older ones. But syrians are still the shizzle!

One guys opinion doesn't make it golden. I read the same thing and thought "well thank you for your opinion." LOL Quoting one guys opinion doesn't make it the rule of the land.

Looks like your base jar is as large as mine, it may be easier to purchase a new whole rig and then use that jar if you like it. You'll need a LARGE stem, like 32-41" to properly use that jar, otherwise a typical 22-28" stem won't allow you enough "air-space" inside to smoke right.

Call Social Smoke and buy one of their extra 30" Syrian Stems for 36 bucks, it's a damn STEAL. You will need grommets though.
