Default Looking for a super stable hookah

can any one shead any light on this subject. Im looking for a taller hookah but would like somthing very stable i have a short chineese p.o.s. and bambino and i have some how managed to tip them over several times. This in turn has pissed off the wife due to the brand new hard wood floor i managed to damage in the process. most of the time i smoke in my shop, and am a little more active with what im doing so i light tip over would be expected from time to time. It seems like every day lately i have dumped one of them over.In the shop it dont matter but in the house today i hardly moved my hose and my hookah whent over. So if any one has a good recomendation hopefully for somthing i can get for under $125.00 would be great. If there is somthing i could from john at CH that would be awsome since ive delt with him and fell comfortable ordering from him again. Or if its from another site a link of pick would be great so i know what im looking for. Sorry for being so long winded

Thanks
Travis

I'd say a KM Hookah from hookahcompany or ******* hookah

But...MZs are quite amazing as well. They are just as sturdy and they are less expensive compared to KMs

But since your max is $125 a Syrian is awesome as well! *************.com sells a good number of them and from a lot of people, I've heard they are very durable and strong

Not a sensible option I have, so go with the others suggestions...BUT:

My mate has just ordered a Hookah from india, which he has to go and collect. Its around 5 foot in height and the base is around 2 foot. Very stable thing, with 6 hoses! Cant wait for him to get it back...

Get this bowl, you can tip your hookah over all day and you won't burn a thing. I have had mine for a year and it works great!

1lowtoy...I purchased a 35" KM Blue Caravan Hookah from HookahCompany.com some time ago. It was great because along with the Hookah; included was this rubbery/coaster looking thing that wraps around the bottom of the hookah's vase.

The covering is very grippy to begin with; and gets even grippier whenever the ice inside the vase melts during a smoking session. I've placed the vase on all types of surfaces...wood floors (which I too have), carpet, tile, concrete...and it works great on all of them

I've seen various vendors sell the same hookah (sometimes with a different name/design on the vase)...but the exact same hookah; W/O the extra rubber stopper at the bottom of the vase. BUT HookahCompany.com was the only vendor I saw that sold this Hookah with the rubber coaster included with the purchase price (oh and the purchase price for this particular hookah was cheaper than other vendors by about $5).

I have this vase in a few colors. It's pretty tip resistent. Throw whatever stem you want into it. That's what I do.

I always use a baking sheet under my hookah since I have hardwood. It doesn't look great, but it keeps me from getting yelled at by my girlfriend.

any km from ************* will be sturdy enough, unless you completely yank on the hose.

a km is more than likely what im gonna do but for the mean time i found a simple solution in my machine shop i had a random 12 inch disc of aluminum from a project we never completed so i hot glued it to the base after i got done with it in the lathe and put a recess in it for the base and some designs in the mill looks cool and and is functional the only draw back is that its now heavy and cumbersom to clean but i accomplished what i needed too.

Sturdy isn't the issue, tip resistent is.
SheeCool, has a wide base as well as the dish vase i had shown you above.
Nevermind the brand name or any of that, it has nothing to do with it.
Hight could play a roll as well as the width of the base of the vase.
Anyone see a spill proof mug?

Maybe you could place your hookah in or on something to guard against tipping. I mean, if you're routinely tipping over a bambino you're more not less likely to tip over a 35" KM.

I only use the bambino indoors in the house so i only use it every once and a while ive tiped it a couple times nothing like the garbage chineese i have but im wondering if it has to do with my hose now. I belive its a namar but was given to me with my bambino i got from my friend. It has acrylic ends and looks like one just wonder if its to much weight handing on the side i have extended the hose where it had a coal fall on it and burn it. but it still has the large end on it. wonder if i should buy a cheep wooden ended washable hose to see if the weight is a factor. i can get the hot glue on the base i made to release any time i want with some light heat. so may try it. does any one think the hose weight hanging on the side could be a issue.
