There are some great acrylic hookahs. Stargates for example. Some of the MYA acrylics and so forth. It really comes down to what you like to look at. Just go with a reputable brand and vendor and you should be ok.

Kwiki is right! Personally, I preffer glass but it also depends on what kind abuse the base may have to deal with, traveling, ect.

Like abu said, it depends on whether you're gonna be carrying it everywhere, or just keeping it at home. I'd go with the acrylic to start with though, regardless

It just depends on self-preference.

Acrylic bases are good to have since they don't break as easily.

As long as you're careful with your hookah you shouldn't really need an acrylic. They are good hookahs though don't get me wrong. The fact that it's acrylic doesn't mean it'll smoke any different.

Neither material smokes better than the other. The design of the hookah is what will make the difference.

Acrylic tend to be good for people that have many parties and travel a lot. Acrylics are very durable and do not break as easy, so during travel and parties if it is accidentally dropped the chances of it breaking are low. Glass on the otherhand breaks more easily but it looks nicer. As for smoke and flavor I personally have never noticed a difference between the two types.

You wont notice the difference in smoke, like others have said, its the stem that really matters
