Default MYA Obelisk

i want to buy this for when i move to my new apartment next semester however i dont want to spend all this money on it (but at the same time i do) i like it because it has the old hookah look with kind of a modern hookah twist ive done my research and all reviews seem great on this puppy http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1729

WHAT SHOULD I DO??

2- AF Golden Eskandrani Apple 2 X 250g: $30
3- Nakhla Double Apple 2 X 250g: $16
4- Tangiers Lucid Kashmir Cherry 2 X 250g: $32
5- Tangiers Horchata 2 X 250g: $26
6- Small Tangiers Phunnel: $13
7- Additional hose, wind cover, and other cheap accessories: $32

I have one, but I have also had their cheaper Egyptian hookahs and in all honesty, it really isn't any better. It looks nice, and smokes great, but is not any better than a KM or MZ or Nour. I wouldn't get it again. Hindsight is always 20/20 though

If you're really stocked on Shisha and accessories and feel like getting a new hookah then go for it. I know many people say they'd get a KM/Nour but honestly, you probably can get a Shisha that smokes great from any respectable brand at as low as $40, anything above that is most likely just going for the looks. So if this is the hookah you find most attractive go for it. It's not that extremly pricy either.

i like myas but myas smoke pretty well no matter the size, you can probably get a smaller one, spend less and be as happy with them.

i have a mini mya acrylic and it smokes great, only think i dont like about it is that is so small so it shakes a little more than my big hookah so the coals move a little more, and the smaller size makes me feel the bubbles more when i pull but the difference in size to my big hookah is drastic.

also ive found HS to be expensive on myas, they sold one for 140 that my local shop had for 100.

I bought a MYA Paragon for 160 the 3 hose version, and i wouldn't recommend getting one, it was a total waste of money as my old hookah smokes way better, that cost halve the price.

Mya might look good and have desent built quality but then again you could probably buy 3 hookahs that cost the same price that would last you way way longer.

I say get a KM and stock up o better hose, bowl, coal and shisha if you really wanna spend all that money

Yh the multi hose is just a adapter you plug in, but even using it as a single hoser im not very impressed by it, even after plugger all the adapters with the original thing LOL( dont know what it is called)

Plus the grommets are totally useless paying 160 for a hookah and using paper towels to keep it air tight is just ridiculos

see the reason i am looking at it is because i was never impressed with KMs and i am in need of a two hose at the moment and i am about to get a shit ton of graduation money from my fam as soon as i finish the semester so i am going to have more than enough money im talking 700+ and i dont really need to put it into savings

It is up to u, but I hate multi hose hookahs. I don't like the idea of two or three persons using the same hookah at the same time. I donno, it's like drinking with someone else from the same bottle.

Again, I wish u all the best of luck and congrats on your graduation !!

Sure a Mya is always a good multi hose choice. No problem with that at all. You'll love it if you hate Egyptian hookahs.

Myas are solid pipes and possibly the most aesthetically pleasing ones. They can smoke great if you set them up properly and the multihose possibility is definitely a plus. If you have the cash to burn I say go for it. It is a beautiful pipe and it will do the job real nicely. There is just one issue though.....they can't purge for shit. Everyone is putting up serious hype for KM's and such but what they dont figure is that most of them brought to the states are just made with stainless steel and according to some of the vendors their quality has been dropping. SO if you don't take absolutely best care of them they will rust on you (I got a hafa working bits of brass!).....Myas on the otherhand their entire working bits are made from solid brass, the smaller myas are just cast brass. Except maybe the down tube. But even then only the downtube will be gone and you can have a new one for $20 or less.

If purging is not an issue a MYA will never be an issue.

If you really want a Mya, get a Mya. They're beautiful hookahs that smoke really well. The only part about this that most people are really opposed to is the price. You can get a great Mya for much less than that anyway; look into some of those.

i own a Mya hookah and I just have a feeling you will be disappointed with them. In the hookah market, they are usually the most expensive ones you come across (cept for those wierd alien hookah ones) and they have a decent smoke and great look, but if you want to impress your friends and yourself you will need to get somthing that SMOKES GREAT and not just looks pretty.

The only time i use my MYA is when I have 4+ people over ready to smoke. Otherwise i use my Nour.
