Default Which KM is the best?

Ok, im about to put in my order for 2 new KM's
one for me and one for a friend. We have never owned one, but after reviewing the topics on this forum im convinced KM's are the way to go.

So i was wondering which KM is best? if there is a best and why?

Do they all have the wide stem it's renowned for?

Which material is best for stem: Copper, brass, stainless steel...?

Also when im looking on certain sites, It's description sometimes says stamped with the KM logo. Does that mean it is in any way better? or the others are just knock offs?

And finally do they all have wide hose ports?

Im asking all this because i want to ensure i get a quality product and dont want to make a mistake in my purchase.

So any help is always very appreciated. Thanks.

There isn't really any difference is gauge that I ve noticed. Some people say older ones have had slightly difference gauge sizes, but any KM you buy will have a superior draw/wide stem.

I love my two. ^_^

the inner workings are usually the same so it would depend on your preference. Mine would be any of the ones that have copper and gold colors in them.

The thing I can say about the 40"
SSR is....

1. It came with a smaller ash tray than my 32" pearl
2. The vase opening is much bigger
3. The downstem is slightly shorter
4. The part where u put the bowl is narrower so I have to stack more grommets
5. Its gorgeous
6. It weights about half as much as my smaller KM pearl

^^ Agreed with 110%. Nours are amazing, but if you stuck on the KM all now are really jsut the same not much difference in smoke its basically all the style now, so just get what ever one you like and it will smoke great..

Ok well thanks for your inputs. I have made my decision and well i gotta wait for tmr to ask my friend what she wants so we can order it together and save on shipping.
Along with the KM's we will be getting some nammor hoses and Med Phunnel Bowls

Can't wait for tmr and even less for when the order arrives. Hopefully before the holidays, i guess i gotta make my move soon.

thats an amoura, its a good one.

seriously though, theyre practically all the same.

the length varies, but youre gonna get practically the same gauge size, basically the same vase and hose, the same stamped cheap metal ash tray, the same cheap crappy tongs. they will all smoke well.

you have to pic what color you want first, then what model. how many pears do you want on your stem, do you want none? cool they have like 3 or 4 of those too.

One of the models with brass in the stem. They all smoke the same, no matter what model.

From the KMs I have smoked from, they all smoke well, it comes down to how you setupa hookah, and just what your preference is, in colors, or whatever.

Durability. But i'm not talking about brass being better, it's most likely not better then real stainless steel. BUT, thee ones with the brass in the stem are made better and are much sturdier. The heart is one solid piece as well.

Take for example a standard chiller. It isn't even soldered together to the shank, it's just folded. I have had 2 of them that eventually developed leaks from poor construction, normal use.

The Brass or "brass core" rigs are made better.
