Default Differences between hoses

I've been reading some topics about different brands and kind of hookah...but does the hose can make a big difference in you session... or do you prefer between a hoses just for the desing or the washability. Yeah I know it sounds newbie but in my city we don't have many options.

Personally, I will take ease of use/cleaning and performance over looks any day of the week. I used to have this ugly ass clear tubing for my hose. It wasn't fancy, but it was wide, washable, and cheap. Made it with about 5 bucks to my name at the time.

I just recently got a Nammor hose from Hookah-shisha.com.

It has really good pull and it cleans pretty simply. Before I was smoking out of a little OE hose that came with my cheapo head shop hookah, you had to sit there and drag and drag and drag, This nammor = zero effort with drawing and getting a good ammount of smoke. Plus it looks good.

The Nammor or Razan hose is like night and day compared to a regular hose. Bigger bore = easier draw, and it's washable. If you decide to get one you will find that it's the best money you'll ever spend on a hookah accessory.

Performance, easy of use and cleanablity makes or breaks a hose in my eyes. Couldn't care how ugly it looks as long as it works and holds up to alot of use (and abuse). That's what hose covers are for - making things pretty

Also think about it in terms of money as well - a more expensive hose purchased once, lasting over a year (or more) is cheaper in the long run than 4-5 cheaper hoses that must be replaced every 4-6 months (or sooner).

I took apart the crappy Mya hose that came with my hookah and replaced it with wide diameter plastic tubing. Wider than a nammor/razan even, and it was uglier than hell. The hose came with the hookah and the tubing cost about two dollars and some electrical tape. I've gotten a nammor since then because it was more flexible than the hose I made.

The width of the hose matters because the bigger the width of a hose, the more smoke and flavor you get.

Also, metal tips and no metal tips matter as well. Its something about the fact that one gives off a better pull and one doesn't I'm not very sure. Non-washable and washable matters too

Thx a lot for you help actually I didn't know that the width matters that much, I just cared if the hose is washable or not. The next time I buy a hose I'll go for the razan.

I strongly recommend the Razan. I have owned one for about a month now and I can say that is the legit washable hose. Durable and wide, as well as easy to clean. I love that.

The biggest thing to look for in a hose is the diameter, since a larger hose gives a much easier draw and makes it easier to draw a lot of smoke.
The next decision to make is whether you want a washable hose or not. Washable hoses will likely last longer and you'll be able to clean it, which means that you won't have any residual flavour in your hose.

I'd recommend one of the KM hoses, I've got one of the fancy ones CH had a while ago. It's not washable, but I use it for all my fruity flavours, so that's not a big deal to me. It is, however, absolutely beautiful.

A Razan is probably the hose to go for if you want something washable though.

I like Km hoses the best. They have a very wide diameter in the hose itself, and a smaller one in the tip than in the Nammor/Razan. The pull is easy, but you can actually feel the smoke flowing unlike a Nammor or Razan, which are wide gauge in all areas. I went from the Razan/Nammor to a KM hose and i love the pull of the KM much more.

I've actually grown quite fond of the Sultan, despite it's shaggy looks.
