Ehh. If you like how it looks yes. It will last you a ling time as well. They charge 50 bucks fro the base itself.

If you like it, Buy it, but a smaller cheaper mya will perform the same.. and be... cheaper.

Look at this:

I can tell you that is a BEAUTIFUL hookah! Your friends will be jealous with envy! The two flaws are:
1.) hoses that come with it are beautiful, but they are a very tight draw!
2.) does not purge very well, so if you are good with heat management, you will be fine (but it has autoseal system anyhow so purging may have to be puff and blow to purge.

hope that helps??

looks great but functionality isn't great and they wobble very easily so you may have some issues. i'd prefer function over looks, go egyptian.

It's worth every penny. I bought it for the autoseal and the height. The smoke is much smoother out of the colossus than my 20-something inch mya. Let your friends smoke out of the mya hoses and get yourself a razan or nammor.

Do you really need that tall of a hookah? Especially if it comes apart.

the way i get mya's to purge is by unscrewing the adapter, and putting the hose straight into that, to blow. It works but is a pain.

Its a beaut. I bought a professor that as a gift once. Its quite nice, but like sam says, tight draw, like all mya hoses.

I also own a collosus and am proud of it. This thing stands out. But it really aint my go-to hookah. If you really need multihose and beauty its perfect. If you prefer functionality then get yourself a Km or a Magdy Zidan with a Nammor and you'll be much happier.
As for looks... I can say that, its one of the best looking things in the market but it does woble a bit because the stem is really heavy.

yes like every1 said if you are completely in lvoe with it go for it man deff.. but IMO for half the price or more then half you can go Egyptian or Syrian that performs just as well or even better..
