Well, a KM is a KM really.

If you've decided on the size, I don't think there will be too much difference besides aesthetics between your choices.

A couple thing's to note:

- If you're looking for a daily smoker, a taller Hookah may not be the way to go. I smoke daily with my 36" Pear, and it's kind of a pain to work with every day. I actually just got a 23" Syrian to use as my daily, with my KM being for smoking with friends and special events. Something to think about.

- A larger KM will smoke like a dream without all the extra accessories like ice chambers, funnel bowls, razan/nammor hoses, etc. Sure they help, but it's like piling 2 extra bags of trash in a landfill. Not as huge a difference if you threw those same 2 bags in an empty dumpster.

- KM's may be considered the cream of the crop, but it's not necessarily for their functional qualities. Alot of the praise for KM's comes from their traditional background. They aren't mass-produced by a bunch of machines, they're more hand made than most. This comes with the quirks mentioned in the posts above. My KM has the leaning tower effect, iffy welds, and very flawed paint. These things don't affect performance though, and they actually add a little character over something like a Mya where each Hookah comes out identicle.

Hope that helps you some. No matter your choice of KM, I'm sure you won't be unhappy, just don't build up your expectations too high. Good luck!

My advice, don't buy a hookah that is tallet than 30". It is harder to clean and maintain and you will get similar quality if not better.

I have a 29" MZ Perpetual River and it's a solid, great performing hookah. Mine came with a chunk of slag in the purge valve that needed to be drilled out to work properly. Not a big deal but worth noting.

That's your opinion. You may like the way your Nour hits, whereas others may prefer the way that a KM hits. Personal preference plays a big factor in how 'good' a hookah is considered.

Nice hookah but a bit pricy considering its a KM and most sell for 90-120.

I would say check out some nour reviews as ive heard good things about them and considering getting one over a KM

I can almost guarantee you with the km if not matched with the right hose it wont be as good as everybody says it is :P

keep in mind my nour was pretty much unsmokable right from the get-go. every single grommet was way too loose and had to be wrapped in tape. The hose had numerous leaks and is way too skinny. The KM hose is excellent and the grommets are still in top shape.

The age old KM battle ensues! lol. In all honesty, it comes down to your own preference, do you want a more fancy, or simple KM? Also, KMs, MZs, as well as Nours, all smoke well, it depends on your setup/preparation, I haven't really heard of anyone complaining about these hookahs, but to end my post, if you want a KM, you will be satisfied with any of them.
