Default To get a new hose or make a new hose?

Since we all know hoses never last forever, the same question must have passed thru most of our minds at one time or another...

So, would you purchase a high end washable hose like the Nammor, or would you just purchase some hose/tubing to "make" your true washable hose?

I am sersiouly considering buying a Nammor, but also really don't want to spend the $$ toward a single hose, when for the same amount I can purchase some cheaper plastic hose (crinkle type) or even some tygon tubing and convert several hoses.

My biggest issue, if I make my own, then I must either buy or make covers as I want "display" pieces (all my hookahs sit out as display pieces when not in use). But that Nammor looks sweet and would be a very nice (and supposedly) long lasting hose!

hummm...

With some creativity, (and you've displayed plenty in the past lol),
I'm sure you could make some display hoses yourself that would be washable, functional, and purty.

However, a nice hose is just something great to have;
they generally have great pull and an exotic flair.

So IMO, I say go for it, buy the Nammor, if you got the walletspace right now.
The hose supplies for making your own will still be cheap enough to buy next week if you wanted, plus you'd have your fancy hose for the "oo-aah" factor lol.

I say go for making one Sammn, you are pretty damn creative!

As for a washable, I have the one Rudy reviewed, that was 7.95 and that is one of my favorite hoses! I need to write a review about it...

If you decide to get a Nammor ask that it be packed in a bag when shipped. Washout the insides with lemon suice and water using a tubing brush before you use it. It look great although I think the handle is too long and for the price I paid it better last at least 2 years.

Al Fakher has a washable hose with removable ends for 3USD and Hookah-Shisha has one for 8USD. Both the AF and H-S hoses are a better value then the 8-10USD Mya washables whose ends don't come off.

If you have some worn out Myas whose end bits are good don't buy any new hoses but make your own.

Since you can sew making your own or buying AF or cheap H-S products seems to be that way to go.

Although I want a nammor, i just don't have the $$ for one. I saw the washable one on AFonline and may seriosuly consider it, but for now I ripped apart my non-washable hose this morning and took the tips (soild alumuinm - purple) with me to work. Gonna hit Lowes on the way home to see what I can find for hosing. My MYA washable is still doing good, although the HH washable has been retired to the Hookah Lamp (tasted horrible and already rusted - grrrrrr).

Also will get some fabric for the hoses that came w/ my Engineer hookah... the tips looks great - the hose itself it so plain...

Nice Tips!

... see if you can find some of that black hose, it is really flexible! or the tygon hose. That would make a great hose!

Well,

I failed at making my hose lol....not b.c I couldn't make it....its just still sitting here in pieces...
A person like me should just buy one lol

But like everyone was saying, it depends on the all mighty wallet....the wallet controls all.

Some said hoses don't last forever but I saw one today that is getting pretty close. A buddy of mine has a Persian Narghile that dates from the 1860-1880 with a big, very thick leather hose and an amber mouth piece. The amazing thing is that the hose is original ans while looks none too good it smokes great. Of course the thing has been well stored and used with caution (not to mention being fix a lot) but i'm blown away nonetheless.

For everyone not so lucky to have such a rig I guess i'd say stick with the cheap AF & H-S hoses.

Well I bypassed buying a new hose in favor of a DIY hose - found some food/water safe black tubing at Lowes - .17 per foot. 5 feet later and I have a new hose (forgot to take a picture)...

And stop dissing my poor wallet - LOL! It took me 30min to find where walmart HIDE the men's wallets - why do they make womens wallets look nice, but only last 2 months! Blarg! :
