Default First Hookah

I've been smoking hookah for the last 2 years of college and I've always had to just go over to a friends house to smoke. I've decided it's time for me to purchase my own hookah.

I'm looking for a medium sized hookah. Somewhere around 28"-32" tall with 2-3 hoses.

Any recommendations on where to go about purchasing a quality hookah or just a specific hookah. Although price is not a big issue, I'd like to keep it under $150.

I would stick with mya if you really want a two or three hose hookah. Check the review section, and also I think there was a thread on this recently so I would use the site serch function for more info.

I agree with the mya... I use all mya here in my cafe... There is this one...
http://www.southsmoke.com/pd_the_frost.cfm and you can make it up to a 4 hose... good quality... Shop around maybe there are better deals but go with mya because of the "auto-seal" system...

For multipe hose ones, either a sahara smoke or a MYA, ive got the mya paragon and to tell you the truth its not really worth the money, becasue the draw once you put the adapters on gets so hard, single hose its great, but not very good when u have more then 1 hose.

Maybe you could get 2 km's or nours for that money

Make sure your adaptors are clean.... I have found that they don't work well when they are full of gunk and whatnot...

Get a single hose KM or MZ trust me the maintenance on my MYA is'nt worth the hoses considering with 3 hoses in its not even close to as good as with just 1. tell your freinds to have some patience and pass the hose.

I agree with the single hose... single hoses are the way to go... even with mya... but...I dont own a KM or MZ so I cant say... almost everyone on this forum loves KM and MZ but if they are handmade I wouldnt like them...

I would definitly stay away from multi-hose hookahs. I bought a 3 hose sahara, and I ended up having to buy stoppers for 2 of the hose holes. If your budget is $150, I would definitly look into getting a KM. I am getting a syrian nour for christmas, and I've heard great things about them, so I'll let you know.

How set on a multi-hose pipe are you? You could get a much better performing single hose pipe for much cheaper.

If you are set on multi-hose, I'd go with a Mya. If you don't mind single hose, go for a KM.

If you want a multihose mya is the way to go imho. The autoseal can cause a harder draw, but the only time ive had that problem is when i haven't cleaned those autoseal ports for a few smokes.
If you want the absolute best smoke possible, and your friends don't use the hookah like its a microphone then a KM/Nour/MZ are your best bets.
I'm in a situation where I routinely have 7-20 people smoking my hookah, so a 4 hose was simply a must. A mya colossus gets the job done for me when it comes to that many people, but when its me and like 2 friends it's the KM Pharonie(Copper Heart) all the way, and every one of my friends agrees that it is a much better smoke.

Thanks for all the info guys, I think a single hose would probably be better for me now that you mention it.
There's usually no more than 6 people at max smoking at a time and it'll usually be 2 or 3 people including myself.
