Default Yeti Hookah?

So, im searchnig for a hookah. I have been researching for about a month or so and i was planning on getting a KM. From what i ahve heard they are pretty good. But, i also heard that Sahara smoke has good hookahs. I am planning on getting one with a large stem and a large base. That was my plan anyways until i saw this hookah. The yeti. It is the coolest hookah i have ever seen, but i dont want to sacrifice quality for its looks. What i am asking is, has anyone ever smoked one before? and, are there any hookahs that have a similar stem on them, i love the little crystals, its a nice change from just normal metal looking stems...thx
i would prolly buy a new vase for it too...

I have smoked from that pipe at my local hookah bar. It smokes just fine, but the quality of the pipe is no where near a KM. I would not recommend purchasing that pipe in my opinion.

yea, to tell you the truth, i would prolly buy a new vase (one from sahara), a nicer bowl (vortex,phunnel...idk yet), and a nice hose or two, like a Razan and maybe one of the super cheap all plastic hoses that look like shit (just for durability puroses).

and...what makes a hookah good or bad?....i mean. as long as its large enough shouldnt it be fine?

I don't own a KM( I'm a syrian snob!), but I can tell you the pull from a KM is far superior than any chinese rig .And although I was less than impressed w/ the contruction of the last KM I handled(again, coming from a guy used to solib brass syrians) I can tell you that they are much better than most chinese rigs. That's not to say that this is not a quality narghile. But s I stated earlier, I wouldn't choose a chinese over a KM.

I would go with a KM. I have a KM stem in my friends vase, and it works like a charm. The tubes of the KMs are wider, so you get better airflow, almost like breathing in. I would definitely suggest upgrading to a razan hose and a vortex bowl.

I don't think it has the quality, I'd go for a KM.

Also it doesn't look good in my opinion, the colors don't go very well together, maybe it's not as apparent in the picture as in real life.

I believe I have been smoking those in a Hookah Lounge in Nashville. They are ok. They purge horribly. I mean It takes some serious lungs and several tries to get the smoke out of there. The lounges here all seem to use Hickory or Mesquite. It smells and tastes great but heat management is a pain. One of those if I only had some tongs kind of things. Anyway I believe the last smoke we had there was on one of these and a Razan type hose and I could see how it would smoke fine if you had your heat management down.

I got a very similar one to the yeti, but the stem aint blue its clear and see through, it smokes like a champ, and the purging is great and got a easy drag, but i say replace the grommet cause its pretty loose and not air tight.
