Default I need help...

Hey guys, this is my first post and im happy to be here. I just wanted to ask you guys for a couple recommendations on a cheap, easy to use, hookah i can get for a first! i wish to get it within the next week so let me know as soon as you can. i would like to order it from hookah-shisha so if you could look around there first to give me an answer that would be great.

p.s. I wanna give a shout out to SamBooka, he is a very nice guy and ive watched all of his videos to help my hookah education. Thanks for all the help man!

Okay, first off welcome to the forums. Now for the Shisha "Also known as a hookah" we need a price range. Also how many hoses are you looking to get? Do you smoke alone most of the time or with other people?

Sorry for the lack of info. i would like a 1 hose hookah. i will most likely never be smoking with more than one other person, plus myself. i would like to spend around $60 for a long lasting hookah.

In my opinion, I would wait until you can spend a little more on a shisha. With 60, you really aren't going to get that great of a shisha. You wont get complete crap with 60, but you will be much more happy if you save a little more. This happened to me, I only wanted to spend that much on a shisha, and I got a cheap chinese. It was the worst shisha, I have smoked out of. This is just my opinion.

but see the reasoning behind me only spending $60 is because i probably wont smoke very often. So your saying i can even get a shisha that will even be fun to smoke from for that price range?

Of course you can. If you aren't going to smoke that much, than its smart not spending alot. I was under the impression that you wanted to start smoking. Well okay, 60 we can figure something out.

Practically speaking you'll spend several hundred a year on moassel and coals so it's stupid to try and save a few bucks on a narghile. The cheapest you'll find for anything worth owning is around $80. Don't by some crap made by Mya or something else from China. Get a good product from Syria or Egypt. I'd recommend Syrians from: www.hookahguys.com, www.jandrhookahs.com, www.magichookahs.com & www.*************.com Get something that will perform well and last many years. You'll be glad you did.

thanks for your recommendation but like i said before i would only like to purchase from hookah-shisha. and also like i said before i will not be smoking very frequently so $60 is all i am really willing to spend on a hookah at the moment. Although, in a year or so i may find myself becoming more involved and wishing i took your advice but you learn from your mistakes. so lets see if we can work something out with a cheaper one from hookah-shisha. thanks for all of your help guys.

In this case, I would probably go for a 22" Egyptian. But you are limiting yourself in terms of styles and what not if you are only looking at Hookah-Shisha.

If it were between the two, I would personally choose the Egyptian.

Check these out.

I use the Bambino almost daily and have had no problems, it comes with a small hard case, which makes storage a breeze. If I were you, I'd use the difference to start getting into some different types of tobacco. At the very least, CH is very good with thier flat shipping rate.. I would check them out..
