Default Advice needed please

Hi guys just wondering if you could give me some advise on these products?

Now I am not sure if they are branded under a different name in the US or around the world however in the UK they are High Life.

The Hookahs that they do come in a 1,2,3 or 4 hose options however before I spend alot of money on it I would like to know if you guys have ever tried one of these or heard of them.

Here is the link to the product http://www.theshisha.com/shopcart/th...-pr-16133.html


and here is a picture of it



Hope you can help

Thanks

105.75 for that thing? Is that thing Chinese? Does it absolutely need to be a 4 hose? It seems that most UK HPers still buy from US hookah shops because prices are lower plus the pound sterling is strong against the dollar right now (even factoring in shipping). A few UK HPers have bought from www.*************.com recently and have been pretty happy. Just send CH an email and ask for a UK shipping quote.

I got the same hookah in the 1 hose and 2 hose models, it was my first hookahs, and i gotta say the one hose one smoke incredibly well, its gotta be up they with KM and syrians with the smoke density and quatity it was absolutly fantastic, but i didnt look after it and i left the shisha and the water lying around init for days after days so it my fault it messed up

The 2 hose one is absolutly crap LOL the smoke is thin and tasteless for some reason, if you wanna get one get the 1 hose one and dont pay more then 50 for it, thats how much it was for in anand pan down green street about 3 yrs ago

I was talking to the guy for some time, I was asking him regarding tips on importing and if he had the Ice Chamber one, he said they have the normal KM one but not the ice chamber one but to come back another night and talk to the shop owner.

Now that's what I call a RIPOFF!
Try buying from an American site and send it over to the UK.
Maybe you'll pay about the same, but it is more probable that you'll get something of a better quality than the multihose 1080 degree hookah! hehehe...!

in most cases you will be thoroughly disappointed when it finally arrives on your doorstep. Most rotators are made of very cheap steel and aluminum parts, and come bent from shipping or just from existing.

Having over 1 hose on that thing kind of defeats the purpose as well...

wow talk about necro posting but since it came up

i have a 2 hose rotator. and frankly "o its pointless to have more than 1 hose on a rotator" is a stupid comment that is made way to often. if i have 4-5 people over i dont want to pass 1 hose for all those people. i got one from H-S and ya its not as good of quality as i expected, infact i can list a lot of flaws about it that i think are total bull but well what ever. it smokes pretty well (but the hose adapters are very inconsistent and some have basically no air flow and others have a huge amount so you either need to get a few extra or be skilled with a dremil/jewelers saw). auto seal on them is a joke so we just have to cap the hoses but its not bad at all.

would i buy it again, meh i dont think so, i would rather spend the cash on a mya, but it works well just has a decent amount of quirks you have to figure out

and yes al waha cola is pretty good. i havent gotten to have al faker cola so i cant judge against that but the other colas ive had are not as good

Im not gunna lie, my Balerina hookah smokes beautifully. And i got it for a bill, with sheesh and coals thrown in. And that was more expensive (i found out later)

My hookah online is 89.99, and in another store, only 69.99 With %20 more to take off!

Shope around and see what other deals you might be able to come by =]

P.S. i personally dont like the rotators, swivels... w/e. My friends stem is bent and when it rotates it looks funky. not to mention jerking em might nock the coal off =[

Ooh, Pipes Plus, a hookah shop in Austin, uses the one-hose models of those exclusively. I'm fairly new to hookah smoking but I have used them and they seem to smoke fairly well.


...they did use different bowls and hoses, though.

Mate, stick with traditional Egyptian designs. Trust me, much better. I got a MZ from Edgware Road for 50 quid. Its solid, and lasted me more than a year and still going strong. It was from Al Mustafa. Oh yeah, an online shop (the name of which I don't know) is planning to get some KMs soon, or so I read on another forum. Wait and see for few weeks.
