QT
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...&idproduct=184

Bambino
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1485

Both are great, but I'd prob go with the QT since it is a little taller and less prone to shoot up water when inhaling if you put a little more water in it.

Ebay - no seriously there are a few guys with decent stuff on there.

From here.
Hookah-Hookah
Hookah-Shisha
**********
The Hookah Store
The Hookah
Hookahguys
Sahara Smoke
Or you know any of the others with good reviews and a discount code in the vendors section. Personally I can account for The Hookah Store but there are others that can and will vouch for the rest.


If I were looking right now I would think about;

http://www.thehookahstore.com/index....products_id=97

http://www.thehookahstore.com/index....products_id=99

http://www.thehookahstore.com/index....products_id=38

http://www.thehookahstore.com/index....products_id=51

http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...okah-blue.html

http://www.thehookah.com/heart-of-li...on-hookah.html

http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...okah-blue.html

http://www.hookahhookah.com/hookahho...cat=249&page=1

http://www.hookahhookah.com/hookahho...cat=290&page=1

http://**********.com/product.sc?cat...0&productId=63

http://**********.com/product.sc?cat...9&productId=53

http://**********.com/product.sc?cat...9&productId=54

Ugh there are a ton more but I am tired of looking them up. Just go through the discount codes thread and pick some good discounts and browse a few sites till you find what you are looking for.

Here is what I was looking for. Something 26-36", large bell shaped base, good sized head, decent color, cheap, clay head.

My wife did a little digging around and a little looking the one she bought me is really nice. I can't wait to get my hands on it. It is a 32" Egyptian and by her description everything on it is supersized from the hookahs we have smoked so far. I am excited.

i just got in one of these http://cgi.ebay.com/Acrylic-One-Hose...QQcmdZViewItem and wow its a great little rig, easy to store and transport, good smoke, nice quality. honestly i am pissed i spent 115 on a hookah that is alright and spent 25 on this and it smokes as well but doesnt have the quality issues i had with my other one.

you honestly cannot get a much better bang for your buck, the other small myas are about the same bang but this one is a little taller and i think taller ones give a little bit smoother and consistent smoke

I had forgotten about that one. We were thinking of getting a little cheap hookah for a co-worker of my wife's who has started smoking with us occasionally. I thought it would be nice to get her one of the cheap ones that smoke well that people keep talking about and let her get her own big bad boy later down the line. I figured that a starter that would be easy to take care of and stuff would be the best beginning and she can move up from there if she wants. Our worst experience was enjoyable for her so I don't think she will ever require a KM or anything like that.



But how does it purge? That may not be important when you have it down but while you are learning it can be a really big deal.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A STARTER HOOKAH.

Go big or go home man.

See, if you buy a shitty "starter" hookah, you will just feel like cutting yourself for not buying a nice one instead. SO buy a nice one.

Khalil mamoon, Mya, Nour all great. Buy a Mya if you want multiple hoses.

In the hookah world you pretty much get what you pay for.

Now if the point of this thread is really "I need a small hookah just to smoke various things out that is inexpensive and just works, and also can be hidden form my parents" the get a life.
-Not saying this is really the point, just if it is.

Here is the thing you don't have to get a KM, A Nour, or even a MYA to enjoy smoking a Hookah. The way I see it a starter hookah is one that is easy to clean, easy to transport, just plain easy. You don't want to get a 42" hookah for your first hookah cause chances are the pain in the butt dragging that thing out setting it up and then cleaning it will turn you off from hookah ownership. Then again if you get one that leaks or constatly gets water up the hose or whatever then again turn you off from hookah big time. You definitely don't have to spend a fortune to get started, You don't have to get a 2" wide stem, AND YOU DON'T NEED BRAND NAMES to be happy with your hookah smoking experience. The only way you would want to cut yourself for buying something other than a Nour or a KM is if you come into the forums and believe the hype. Any pipe that doesn't have gaps in the welds and is made out of non-rusting metals will work well and last a good long while. I won't say you will be unhappy buying a KM or a Nour. You will likely be very happy. You will also always fit in with everyone else if that is important to you. If you are looking to get started in a hobby with a good pipe then find a reputable dealer (this place is crawling with them) find a nice looking pipe, ask questions, purchase and enjoy. It seems silly to me that there are even brand names for this. I mean briar and Meerschaum smokers can be borderline fanatical about their pipes but you don't see neer this level of idol worship.

A starter hookah is one that gets you on the ground running, is inexpensive, easy to maintain, and looks good to the person smoking it. Our first experience was with a not very well maintained (cleaned every time but just not meticulously taken care of like some), not very well made hookah with a common 3 or 4 dollar cheapo hose. I gotta say that if it were necessary to have a KM to enjoy smoking then I would never have gotten this far with it. Maybe I don't know what I am missing but you know what who cares. I enjoy it. From what I hear mine is better made and better quality than any I have smoked. To me I say excellent if it is that much better then bully for me. Someday I may get the opportunity to smoke a KM or something like that and when I do I may say wow now that is worth more than double the price of mine. However, with the way money goes lately I kind of doubt it.
