Default Your honest opinion

Well for starters im not picky when it comes to hookahs ..but of course the thing has to work to perfection. My question is what do you guys think of this hookah?

http://mnhookahs.com/product_info.ph...products_id=33

I mean what I do like about it is that its cheap. I mean where else can you get a 30$ hookah thats 32 inches ( you show me and I'll buy it ). But what do you guys think of it.

looks like a usable rig. I don't like it being some what gimmicky and the acrylic base.

If you've got 30 to spend, it might be worth it.

Honestly, I might consider getting something like that as a fun conversation piece, BUT I would only get it because I already own a solid high quality hookah! My honest opinion is that if I didn't already own a really nice hookah, I would pass on buying one of these and I would buy a solid, functional, quality hookah first. Like an Egyptian with a glass base and brass stem.

Although, I don't know much about that hookah, who knows...it may be a really great hookah! It would definitely be a conversation piece!

i thought about getting it just to have it. I think it's a decent hookah. I mean no way a solid hookah but for 30 bux you can't go wrong.

For $30, it's what you can expect - I have seen one similar up close and can say the price they (local store) were charging was crazy - $85. For a $30 rig, it looks decent - don't expect to keep the lights working long. That store told me they had a tendency to short out (probably due to it not being water-tight and people's cleaning)

As long as you don't expect miracles, it's ok. Also - please say this isn't your main hookah (or won't become one) - I would wait till you had more money to buy a better one if you are thinking about it.

Oh boy....

I had one.... it was a freebie from a hookah vendor...

Its plastic...... almost entirely... the core, ashplate...bowl seat and downstem were all that were metal.

The heart is made of plastic and so is the hose connection and and purge valve.


Im not sure why they even make them....

It's crap. If it's free sit it on a shelf and watch the lights flicker. If it costs more then say $10 avoid it. If you want something functional you'll have to pay for something worth owning. In practical terms a decent narghile can't be had for less then $70 although it's possible to spend far more and still have something that won't give great performance or last more then a year or two.

Save your money and get a well made Egyptian or Syrian. Keep in mind that you'll spend a couple of hundred or more on coals and shisha within a year and you're ablity to enjoy your smoke has a lot to do with having a good rig. If you want to get real satisfaction from this hobby you really do need a quality rig so don't waste money on shinny junk.

That hookah is trash. Almost every Hookah lounge down here in Houston use them because they do in fact have acrylic bases, and it makes the lounge owner sleep better at night...but as a hookah; looks, smoke capability, etc. They are pathetic.

Good Luck!

I got mine from Hookah Company, the 28" Amer Khalil Mamoon

Also, my girlfriend was considering buying me another hookah, and I declined and asked for an electric guitar instead ... But anyhow, if I was going to get another one, they have 39" KMs at Hookah Life for a reasonable cost. And there are two discount codes for Hookah Life in the vendors section. For 15% off and for a free 250gm Al Fakher or Havanna shisha with a certain purchase amount (which the 39" KM would qualify for). I don't know if you can apply both codes, but you could ask?

Hope that helps!?
