Default What to buy?

Here goes my first post! Ok. I'm a hookah noob that would really appreciate some advice on what my first hookah setup should be! My budget allows $110 give or take a little. So I guess my first question should be...Can I get a quality hookah smoking experience for that price? Anyway thanks ahead of time for any replies! Thanks for your time.

that is more han enough to get a good rig, you came to the right place though there are tons of unsolicted views from HP members in the vendor review section, you should read up on that to choose who you should buy from, also, there is a great products review to help narrow down your search. just get reading and you'll most likely find what you are looking for, good luck

Buy from john, that guy will give you a RIDICULOUSLY good deal on anything you could possibly need. Personally i'd suggest either a vortex or phunnel (bowl), a nammor or Razan hose, and a 1 hoser mya bambino or QT (bambino comes in a more convinient case, I like the look of the QT base better though). It'll run you about 75-80, and you'll be creating huge clouds with ease.

Thanks for the quick responses! Yeah from what I've read John is a great guy! So I will definitely be placing an order with him soon.

Hey man welcome to the forums! 110 bucks plenty. You can get yourself a real nice rig, such as a high end Mya, KM or MZ. I bought a 32" MZ for 80 bucks along with a box of coals. Look around John's site for awhile until you find a hookah that you really, really like. I'd actually suggest giving John a call instead of just ordering online.

You can't go wrong with ******* Hookah. Pick up one of his 26" brass syrians (which are on sale BTW!) and a razan hose. Add in the shipping and you'll still fall within your budget.

Or, forego the hose for now and buy lotsa shisha!

I agree with everything above except for the suggestion to get a MYA Bambino. Unless you need to travel from place to place to smoke your hookah, get a bigger hookah.

Thanks for all the advice! Right now I'm leaning toward getting the 26" brass syrian since its on sale for such a good deal. So if I was to get that hookah would a razan hose be necessary?...or would the stock hose perform fine for now? Also how many sessions do you get out of a 250g tub of shisha?

stock hoses will always work, but once you smoke from one of the razan/namors you wont want to go back (i have 2 nammors and love the things)

250 can give you 5 sessions or it can give you 25 sessions, really depends on the bowl. i prefer the phunel bowls (i have a small i use all the time and get at least 2 hours if not 3+) out of it but it uses a decent amount of shisha. personally unless you have a flavor you know you like or you cant get it in a smaller size i wouldnt get the 250s right away, if you can find a good deal on the 50 or 100 gs like a sampler or what ever i would go with that. i bought a few 250s of flavors i never tried before and well, they are ok but not something i want to smoke all the time, and the frequency ive been smoking since i got my rig i got bored really quick.

i personally like the medium sized myas for a "cheaper" rig but they might be a little over that range for price.

if ur spalshing out on a new rig, i suggest getting the razan, cos i got a 3 hose mya hookah and only 1 razan at the mo, and we actually pass it around instead of smoking out of 1 of the stock hoses, it does make a hell of a difference.( i did order another 2 with my hookah but der forgot to put it in da box, and im waiting on delivery)

like a previous post on how many sessions it will last it all depends on the bowl, i got a large phunnel and 250 grams last for 4 sessions maxs, but thats a huge phunnel, out of a stock bowl i use bout 20-25 grams, so can have bout 10 sessions outta that one
