Once school is over i'm making a "What's best" post because there are way too many of these posts asking what is best. There are just too many biased opinions and personal preferences as to what is best, BUT there are better items than others out there and for certain reasons. So, if you do some reading in the general section and the review sections, i'm sure you can see how people like certain products. If you don't see what you're looking for then try out the search button. I don't want to come off as an ass but I had to say it.

KM's are awesome, i'd say anywhere between 20-36", any bigger and it becomes more of a burden to use, clean, etc.

Bowls, I would say go with either a funnel or vortex bowl, they are amazing.


As far as hoses, KM hoses are good quality and normally come with the hookah on most sites.


If you're going for high quality, I'd say stay away from non-brand names, some are awesome, but sometimes you can get a real lemon.

don't forget the Nours! They are nire durable than a KM and only slightly tighter on the pull.

seconding the punnel/vortex thing. and get a nammor or razan hose.

this is very opinionated but i would say all good hookahs have a few similar traits that make them better than the rest. proably the most important is a large bore stem. this affects the ease of the draw and usually your cloud size. the same with the hose I love the hose that came with my KM but i found 2 draw backs to it. First not washable second the part that ataches to the hose to the port is long and heavy made it a little heavy to one side. Im actually using my brand new razan sultan as i write this and it is great but as with all things there is somthing you may not like. I actually think it feels a little less substantial than my km and thats the only thing i dont like. The only other thing i can say is pick a base you like but heavy and with a large bottem to make them stable and less prone to accidents cause burnt carpet sucks trust me. as for the bowl i dont think you cant go wrong with either a vortex or a phunnel almost the same basic princiable.

The Nour army amasses.

If you could hold both stems km and nour, you'd wanna get the nour, plus its the same price if not cheaper... and they are very attractive.

okay listen up.

Either a Khalil Mamoon or a Syrian Nour. People have very diff opinions on these but both are great hookahs.

You should also get one medium Tangiers Phunnel Bowl and one Vortex from saharasmoke.com

Also pick your self up a razan hose. There washable,wide and just great.

Get some ******* hookah quicklights. you can get this from **********.com


So a basic heres the list
Hookah:KM or Syrian
Bowl: Tangiers Phunnel, Vortex
Hose: Razan
Coals: CH QL's

You can buy almost all this from **********.com besides the vortex bowl which youll need to get from saharasmoke.com

order all this and youll be smoking like a pro for a longggg time.
Good luck!

the nour is more sturdy/durable because it is a solid brass stem, very heavy, very solid. The glass vases are much thicker by my understanding...

here's a vid by my boy photolinger comparing KM to Nour

I own a KM, just got my Nour yesterday, and I just bought my Dad an MZ. We fired all three of them up last night, and honestly, they were all awesome enough that you couldn't notice much difference.

Just find a KM/MZ/Nour that you like the look of, buy a phunnel bowl, razan hose, and some good tobacco. You'll have everything you need for an amazing smoke.

Personally... I enjoy the Mya Saray Blue Crystal Hookah... and that one is quite expensive. I would have both a standard bowl and a tangiers bowl because some tobaccos act differently in each of those. Make sure to get a good washable hose because chances are if you dont it will eventually rust. I use mya washable hoses in my cafe. I'm not a spammer I just enjoy the mya line. It has proven time and time again to be beautiful and great quality at the same time which is hard to come by.

Here's my view on things, some others may make speculations but here i go anyways :P

The top notch most popular hookahs on the market, as others have said, are KM/MZ/Nour. What you're looking for is the type of metal it is made out of, i don't know exactly what KM and MZs are made out of but a lot of Syrian Nours are made from brass, which i've heard can be a little extra work to keep clean but they are really beautiful looking pipes and i'd imagine totally worth the extra care. Secondly what you may want to look for is a wider stem gauge, the wider the stem the easier the drag will be when you take a puff from the hookah, but i've never noticed a big difference there, because you can always get a wider hose which more or less follows the same concept, such as a Razan or Nammor hose. And third, of course you want something that you find aesthetically pleasing!

There's all sorts of reviews on bowls, shisha, etc. in the review section of HP so you can go there and take a look around at others detailed reviews to find out which one you'd see to suit your needs.
