Default buying new hookah

hey all, after doing a bit of research i decided to purchase a km.
im debating between the amoura and the chiller. Any advice

Also, which size phunel bowl do you suggest, is a small bowl big enough, i usually smoke alone or with 1 other person.

thanks in advance

Small Phunnel bowl for sure, not matter how many people. Medium and Large are way too big.

I would say go with the Chiller, you have the ice option and that keeps the stem nice and cool. I dunno if it cools the smoke noticeably in your mouth, but it's cooler when it touches your face, which is very, very nice.

Is the stock km hose that comes with the pipe good enough or should i go with a namoor hose?

Stock KM hoses pull exactly the same as nammors. They just aren't washable, but as long as you blow out the smoke after a session you should be fine.

is there a big difference between putting ice in the base and having the ice chamber or is it basically just for looks?

Some people swear by the ice chamber and others say it doesn't do anything. Having one can't hurt though, so why not get one?

Get a small funnel. That is plenty big enough for two and sometimes a little big for one.

Phunnels are great and I recommend getting a small one. Eh imo, I think ice chambers are a waste of money. I mean they do cool down the smoke a lil but nothing "amazing" or anything like that. From my experience, ice IN the base does a great difference.

I love the ice chamber on my on the rocks. It just makes things more smoother. It also decreases the rattle that some KM's have.

When I want ice I just put it in the base. I don't really see the reasoning for a chiller when this is an option.
