Default MYA's kinda suck at purging?

So i was told that MYA's have a major problem purging.

SOOOO, does anyone know any good alternatives? I would hate to think that if the smoke got harsh, i really couldn't do much about it.

:\

The MYA's I have smoked haven't had a problem with purging, and I am one to purge a lot.

I've typically only smoked them in lounges, but that says a lot in my opinion.

Eh I'd just say get it if you are planning to get a MYA.

I know that KMs smoke superbly compared to many other brands, but at the end of the day, a hookah is a hookah. Meaning they will smoke just like its supposed to if everything is set up right.

Heh I have a Mya hookah myself and its great. The only bad thing is the purge.

But, I'm sure that this mod will help

My friend has that exact mya and he loves it, but I get annoyed because the shape of the stem at the top isn't a traditional shape so it doesn't fit any of my regular or phunnel bowls. It purges just fine, but never purges completely like i've seen KMs and nours do.

I've got a mya chic and a QT and they are still great smoking machines. Just don't expect your base to be completely rid of smoke when you purge (unless you do something to help it purge better). Though, in my opinion the amount of smoke left in the base after a purge isn't worth crying about.

I own a Mya, a KM, and a Nour.

The mya is a great travel hookah, it works quite well, but purging is a bitch. What I chose to do when it needed purging was to unscrew one of the adapters and just blew into there, the smoke clears that way best.

As for getting a KM or Nour above a Mya, its sort of like this. You may have been in a cheap car before, where it does the job but then ridden in a nice car, like an Audi or something. You notice the styling is better, the quality is better, you like the way it feels the way the door closes, its response etc etc. Its a little bit better in so many ways, thats what makes it a lot better.

Nour's are much more gorgeous than your average Mya. There are the super mya saray hookahs that are quite elegant, but when you hold them, they still don't feel like they are built as well as the nour or the km. they also smoke so much better, the flow is less restrictive, etc etc.

To echo what photolinger says above, its all about the level of quality.

I use a mya bambino as my daily smoker, but the way its purged has always annoyed me. I have smoked out of KMs and agree with the sentiment that KMs are just a better product in general. If you are on a budget, then a one of the smaller myas is the way to go. Otherwise, other brands (KM, MZ, Nour) would be better imho.

Its cuz a hookah needs to purge good so you can take out the old, harsh, and stale smoke out of the vase.

purging is a feature for heat management.

you'll begin to taste a slightly stale/semi burnt smoke taste if you're paying close attention. at this point, you move the coals/ash, purge the smoke, and resume smoking. this will prevent you from burning the tobacco and allow you to have a longer, more enjoyable session. its why they put the purge valve on there in the first place!!

no i mean i get in "theory" what is a purge valve but the only time you might need to use it is if you have a large vase and only take hits every few minutes. But other than that if it is a small mya just breathe in the smoke. The purge factor is the most overreated part when you are judging the quality of a hookah
