Don't get me wrong, I love my KM, but I would like to try something different and have a different hookah compared to a lot of hookah smokers :P

That is why I picked the Syrian. I wanna try to smoke from a different hookah! ^_^

I have never tried a Syrian hookah nor owned one and I'd like to try out one of them one of these days

That's like comparing a Porsche and a BMW. Some people prefer one over the other for various reasons. Also, you need to be ALOT more detailed with "Syrian". There's Syrian that are hand-made, syrians that can come apart, and brand-name ones. Each smokes differently.

Well hell yeah!

I would rather have a Nour because they are more intricately designed on the outside. They have a slightly tighter pull as well which i prefer.

i love KMs and my friend has a syrian. mine has an easier purge (we used the same bowl and hose) and easier pull. but i wouldn't mind having a syrian either they're no slouches at all imo, to me there identical but syrians seem to be crafted better than KMs. But i still went with KM in the poll

I love both styles.

Khalil Mahmoon hookahs tower over most hookahs and are spartan in design.

Syrian hookahs are usually more ornate and are usually made of brass. Traditionally, they use a male-fitting bowl, but because of the popularity of the female-fitting bowl, many Syrian hookahs now come with in that style.

I'd go with a Syrian. My opinion is unfair to KM because I AM Syrian, but yeah. KM rules no doubt, but Syrian hookahs are built just as nicely. Syrian for me :P

I own two Syrians and two KMs. Neither Syrian is a nour but I could care less. The one I go to regularly was however bought in Damascus and uses the male fitting bowl. No matter what pipes I go through that one will always remain my favorite pipe.

One thing I hate about Km's, when you pull, the tray rattles quite a bit if you don't have coals/tongs on it. It gets annoying sometimes. I like to hear the bubbly noise, not the rattling noise.

Syrians are more intricate and are much better to look at. The new KM styles aren't bad at all, I am going to get a tri-metal, but for authentic beauty, syrian is it.
