Default need an expert opinion

I'm getting a new hookah for the holidays. My friend got this model w/ one hose last year and it smokes amazing. Here is a link to both pages... Some of my other friends from the Rutgers IT dept told me double hose absolutley sucks even with the autoseal technology.

which one would you prefer and why? Money and time isn't an issue because I am waiting for the clear glass base to come in stock.

Also can ne1 recommend me a mini hookah from hookah-shisha.com that won't "shoot up" water when inhaling? How's the maya qt?

Mya QT/bambino both smoke very well.

As for autoseal...I hate it...it sucks, it gunks up and restricts airflow. I stick to single hosed models.

hmm the Bambino is also getting excellent reviews...

do you think i can hook up a small nammor hose to it such as here?
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1574

Maybe I should just get the ivory hookah with the bigger nammor hose and funnel?

what are your takes?

I know people do you full size nammors/razans with it. You probably just have to be careful. I only smoke my 30-40 inch hookahs so can't really help you that much ^_^

Why a mini hookah? You are asking for experienced advise .. personally I don't like the smaller hookahs. But if I had to get one, it would be a small egyptian hookah. and a light hose with lots of air flow!

egyptian hookah, or something similar
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...7&idproduct=96

high flow, light hose (I really like this hose by the way! Just put a nice hose cover on it, and presto! Perfect, Light, Completely Plastic!)

great advice keep it coming!

about the phunnel....
it has a hole in the middle...
do we still poke tiny holes all over the head of the bowl, or is there a special way to prepare it?

Thanks for your time!
if you tried something and you love it then get what you like and know is good to your tastes. hookah is a hobby and made for relaxation so if something meets your needs you might not like some one elses opinion stick with what you like thats my advise to you. thats is why they make so many shisha flavors for each persons taste and smoke prefrence. FYI mya is a reputable company but it is very delicate so you have to be careful with it,

Both KMs you listed are nice .. and yeah maybe a Nour Syrian may be nice too .. all great suggestions and I am sure great hookahs! I have never tried a Nour Syrian, but would like to one of these days so I can understand more about them and compare, and possibly recommend if I like them!

You asked my opinion of all the hookahs I tried? Well what I am going to tell you right now speaks for itself, so pay close attention! You ready? .. I have a couple, and the one that gets the most use is my 28" KM Amer! Ohhh I hope my cats never knock it over and break it, I would cry for weeks! I don't feel I really need to use the other hookahs when I am completely happy with my KM!

So which one would I suggest!? In all honesty, I like this one listed in this post. I think that is a GREAT price and there is a Hookah Pro discount for like 15% off. Talk about a friggen' steal! The hose that comes with it is a wide hose! It looks like it has that awesome bell on the bottom of the stem that spreads the bubbles out. It is just the right height for Goldilocks, not to tall and not to short! Hell, I am thinking about buying it!

That is about the same deal I got when I bought my 28" KM Amer .. and it was the best purchase I ever made!

Doesn't seem anyone mentioned this part. The two hookahs you posted were the same hookah. The two hose model is just the one hose model with the conversion. You can buy those anywhere for those hookahs. So between the two in the link get either they will be the same. If you want two hoses get the two hose if you don't think you will need it don't waste your money getting one with a converter on it.

haha good joke, but nothing compares to the mighty Amer!
.. I looked months ago and couldn't find them! but I will look again after I post this ...

I hope you read my response above, If you liked that KM from HC, I would definitely go ahead and pull the trigger on that one and get it! I am thinking about getting it myself! For my collection!

Cheers! and Let us know what you decide ..
