Default Best Hookahs...

So I recently purchased my MYA Pyramid and am loving it!

I have been browsing the forums a lot and have noticed a lot of people talking about the KM hookahs. What is so special about these hookahs? How do they compare against MYA hookahs or Syrian hookahs?

Thanks for the feedback!

Alot of the times its a matter of opinion really. I love KM's so much, and I own an MZ and a Mya. So I've smoked out of all of them and they're all amazing.

For KM's Wider gauge everything and the pull is just redonkulously easy! They go toward more of the traditional Egyptian style. They are great looking pipes and hit like Kimbo Slice!

KM's will match Syrians in smoke. Syrian's are more unique. not to mention, must more solid. but KM's are KMs.
Join the dark side, buy a KM!!!
mauahahahaha.

KMs make things so much easier trust me. I had this 28" egyptian no name hookah and I thought that hit very nicely. But when I ordered my 36" KM a week ago, my world changed. Theres no point in the old one now ~_~ . It's not hype, trust, it really is that great.. and some

The diff between and MYA and a KM is that the KM has a traditional heart chamber while the MYA has a common one.

It means the KM's pull and purge of smoke is ridiculously easy while the MYA's purge isn't as easy and neither is the pull.

Also, KMs are traditional hookahs and MYAs are more of a modern one. MYAs cost a lot more than KMs too.

I used to have an MYA, it looked really good but i must say i cant even compare it to how good my new egyptian smokes, and as Jilly said the purge on MYA's is completely rubbish.

In truth, it's all down to the end user. Some will love MYA's, other Syrians, even other KM's & MZ's. They are all different types of pipes, looking and even acting different (as in smoking). Plus price can affect the pipe selection - a 40$ QT is completely different than shelling out $100 for a large KM/ZM/Syrian.... but it's a total different smoking experience.

If it's your first pipe, it comes down to sticking to a small, but known producer (22" E, QT or Bambino) or shelling out for a larger rig (km/MZ/or Syrian). Plus, take into consideration - are you gonna travel with it? Do you have to stash it out of sight afterwards? How long do you plan on keeping it BEFORE either selling or getting a new one?

Good luck and enjoy what ever you choose.... in the end, it's all up to you.

I have an MZ and love the crap out of that nefertiti, but if I had some extra cash with no where to go I would totally drop it on a nice KM in a heartbeat!

hehe, Its out of love.

Anway, I own a MZ and love the hell out of it. I've smoked out of a KM and I have to say there really is no difference. What make them better is the stem is a wider diameter, and the construction and choice of metal is a better quality. Comparing craftsmanship, MZ hands down. KM has a very good standard, but the braze welds on the components seem a little sloppy and hapazard.

I've owned literally a hundred or more narghiles over the years of virtually everything you can think of and I've drawn a few conclusions which i'll restate briefly.

1) Mya makes Chinese crap. I've owned several and none of them last over a year without serious trouble and some never even made to the 6 month mark. They are overpriced junk made with slave labour and the other Chinese made rigs are worse. Most people that have tried something of quality from Syria or Egypt end up giving up on Mya stuff.

2) All of the major Egyptian brands ( KM, El Ashrey, MZ, Shisha King etc) are usually well built and perform well. I personally don't think that any qualitative difference between the bigger Egyptian brands exist but that is just me. They tend to not be as decorated as Syrians nor as heavy but they usually are pretty good.

3) Generic Egyptian made rig are a gamble. More often then not they are poorly built and don't perform well although you may get a good one why risk it when you can get a decent rig for not much more money?

4) Syrians. I am huge fan of Syrians and they will continue to comprise most of my collection for some time. I like the closed, common style smoke chamber and the weight of the Syrians. I also perfer brass to stainless steel and have found that on the whole Syrian products last longer and have better quality craftsmanship.

as long as you get good smoke out of it both are good. i have an mz, a km, a syrian, a couple of no name chinese hookahs, and I use them all. It's a matter of preference and mood. The KM is a beast but it takes a lot to clean it and prepare it as my small syrian is like a toy next to it. Both smoke great. Who says you have to have 1 hookah anyways?

All I have to say is that since I bought my syrian from John at ******* Hookah, I have become a syrian fangirl....and to add...I have an MZ, a few Mya's, and a no name egyptian.....I think I want to get a bigger syrian for my next purchase....

Peace Out

I had a generic Egyptian for nearly a year and it hit well, but when I got my MZ Perpetual River it was sooo much better. Hits effortlessly and purges so easily it's ridiculous.
