Default Whats the best hookah?

I'm new to this, I got interested in hookah smoking while i was on holiday, and i brought a lil one back home with me.
But ive been looking around and the stuff available looks so cool. I was wondering if anyone could suggest a really nice hookah I might like to buy. I think the ones with the ice chamber look cool but the only ones like ive seen have a big colourful blob in the middle of the stem and i like the plain chrome stems...

But yeah, any help would really be appreciated =]=]

Ben, London.

Generally it's a lot about personal preference, but I'd say either an Egyptian Khalil Mamoon or a Nour Syrian. They are top of the line in my opinion, however, I proved that you can get huge smoke out of a Mya Bambino . Go to John's site *************.com and have a look at what he has to offer. He is the best

welcome to HP! that's a very general question, kind of like what's the best guitar/car/swimsuit model etc. If you search around you'll see alot of reviews on many hookahs and hookah products. It will come down to a preference thing though, oh and price too, good luck on your search,

some chinese stuff is ok, just like anything that comes out of china, if you pay for it you'll get quality, if you buy cheap chinese junk that's what you'll get.

is that a chinese? personally I have a chinese hookah and I get nice smoke from it, but it doesnt compare to the KM I got from John. Plus chinese tend to wear out quickly. The smoke from the KM is cooler and the taste is better.. Imo if you want a portable hookah, go for the Nour syrians, else a KM.. gl!

I got a MZ from Edgware Rd for about 60 quid. Way too much to pay for it, but it does smoke good. I would recommend it, but also consider KMs in some shops in Edgware Rd.

Look at Shishaworld.de they're in Germany but have some really low prices I got my Bambino from there. The shipping cost is about 5-10 quite cheap.

This sounds good! I'm annoyed that all the cool stuff seems to be on American sites...I'll have to find out how much P&P is to England...


And I can get them on edgware rd? Can you get the KMs etc there?

Cheers everyone!

Hey, check out www.gothookahs.com and look for Khalil Mamoon. They smoke like a dream. they are a bit big, but worth the money. these things don't dissapoint. and on that site are VERY cheap. happy hunting.

i am a believer in bigger gives better smoke, at least in the base. i also think the hose is a huge part of it, gota have a good flowing hose to pull well (nammor/razan).

i have a lunar rotator, yes it has some leaks but the amount and quality of smoke are so good it doesnt bother me at all. i am a fan of the myas as well, never gotten to smoke from a KM/MZ (at least knowing it was one) but im still a believer in the hose being the weakest link

Go with the Bambino! XD
