Default Hoses - Smoking Difference? Are Some Better Than Others?

So, I've been trying to do some research on hoses... and i'm kinda failing.

-Are they better if they're washable?
-I heard that the Razan hoses somehow affect the smoke. some say they'll never go back to a reg hose. A hose can affect the smoke quality?
-My boyfriend likes the Joker Hoses (the one with the little poofs on the ends) because they're aesthetically pleasing .. but are they actually any good in regards to longevity or smoke?
-Do you know of any hoses to not buy?
-DOES THE HOSE EVEN MATTER?

what the crap. i'm confused.

Yeah, hoses really matter. I found out the hard way by washing my first hookah hose. I was inhaling little bitty rust, so I threw it away. If you're looking for a hose to buy, I would recommend the Razan hose. It really does improve the smoke quality. Just make sure you set your hookah bomb as hell to make your smoking section with the Razan good.

It does make a bit of a difference but nothing to major, it gives you a better draw so its easy to pull, its got a really nice long handle so its easier to use, the best hoses on the market are the razan/nammour and KM hose, and i believe that the grand hose from ******** is not to bad either.

Hoses do matter. there are plenty to choose from, Mya healthy hose, Nammor, Razzan those are the ones I would recommend.

wider hoses give easier pull, to a certain extent(when they're limited by the hose port size), hoses with metallic wiring inside are going to rust and the ends can or can not eventualy get unglued and stuff. so yeah, a hose really can affect your hookah session

Don't wash your hoses and they will be good for quite a long time! Just stick to certain flavors for hoses. Red hose for berry flavors, brown hose for coffee flavors, green hose for mint flavors, etc.

The best hose I have used so far. Is this one, because it does not hold any flavor, no matter what I smoke through it! and I never wash it (even though it is completely plastic) It may look cheap and ugly. And it is! But dress it up with a hose cover and this hose is my favorite!

Wider is better. Washable is only better to the extent that you can wash them without ruining them in theory. In practice it depends on the hose really. Now as to what is better and what is worse it really just depends on you. Some people love the Razan and Nammor hoses. Maybe if I tried one I would too but I gotta say telling me that the hoses have to be glued back together and knowing that the difference is a matter of a few millimeters in diameter between that and nicer other hoses isn't really a selling point. I can get a few cheaper ones with roughly the same or very similar draw for the same money. I will go with that for now. I do want to try one some day just to see if all the fuss is really worth it or if it is just the typical there can be only one even though the top 20 are all really quite wonderful. It seems these forums are rife with you must have a KM/Nour, Razan/Nammor, yada yada yada and you must buy them from John. All very good suggestions but there are also many other ways to go in each category that you will be just as satisfied with.

I dont think I quite understand this part......like...make sure the smoke is thick?

How can you tell which ones have metallic wiring inside?

Are Razan/Namoors washable?

Translation: Just set up your Hookah really well to get the most out of smoking with a Razan.

Sorry about that I was about to translate it, thanks Fezzik

Yeah, the Razan/Namoors are washable. Don't wash it too much, as people said it.

Some people like the washable hoses, Nammors/Razans, the other washables as well, or you can get a couple hoses and use different flavors with each. A good hose will ensure good smoke and pull, compared to a narrow one.
