Default Video comparison?

So, i was thinking, with all the heated debate that is always raging around here about KM vs Nour and such... maybe some of you out there with both would be kind enough to make a video camparing the two. You know, highlighting the differences and similarities between the two. Maybe even throw in some other ones like mya if you have them around.

What do you think? I know i would watch that video! Maybe our good buddy photolinger could do it?

Hmm, honestly I think a hookah either smokes good or doesn't, which I'm sure KM/Nour/Mya all pass. The rest is all about the looks isn't it?

Honestly I was thinking of doing this but the main difference with these hookahs are looks and draw. Another thing I noticed is my friends tri-metal has a noticably thinner stem than my blue pearl, almost as thin as my generic Egyptian from H-S. The draw on my blue pearl is like taking a breath while the draw on my nour is a bit restricted, even with a razan/phunnel. The amount of smoke really depends on the bowl/tobacco/coals. Anyone could make a video where they're burning tobacco in one bowl and not in another just to make one pipe look better. You can get good smoke from just about any hookah depending on your set-up, like my MYA QT smokes like a champ. Not like my KM or Nour but it still gives me flavor and good smoke.

Hahaha thanks Dunkel! I can't compose the video anytime soon, sadly. I am at an all-time low on coals & mo'assel so until I get some more in stock my videos are pretty much done for. But on a brighter note, there won't be too much difference in between smoke density, if that's what you guys are wondering about. I just prefer Nour personally because of quality and craftsmanship...my KM has been a handful of problems, but that's all fixed now thank God. Anyways, if anyone can do this video, I'd be sure to watch it

i really mean like showing the stems side by side and stuff like that, not just how it smokes. I know personally it will be a very entertaining and enlightening video if done properly, which shouldnt be hard.

I use my tight draw hoses to smoke Tangiers, Nakhla and Fumari. I use my Nammors/KM's to smoke SB, AF, Etc. With things that have the best taste, I use my smaller hoses. Draw has no appeal to me, as long as I can inhale and my lungs don't get tired after 1 session, i'm cool.

Nour are great, better than standard model KM's. The brass insert KM's I would say are very similar in quality to Nour. I would say that it is very important to a collector to have a KM and a good quality Syrian (whatever brand it may be, generic or not).

if i can find a KM i can do identical pipes (or near, both KMs) with matching razans, coals, shishas, etc and compare phunnel and vortex....

session length, heat management, flavor/flavor retention, ease of draw.
