Default High Life Hookah ...

Morning Guys,

Hopefully posting this in the right forum, Im new to hookah and from the UK, Hi everyone

Im looking to buy a hookah but some of the UK sites aint too good.

im looking at this one: http://www.theshisha.com/shopcart/pr...cat=250&page=1

Cant seek to find any reviews, good or bad so was just wondering what you fella's at Hookah-pro think, good deal?

I would probally buy some shisha elsewhere.

Thanks for your time!

Brad.

Hmm...IDK about the bowl..its glass and glass is known to burn the shisha real quick (except the MNH glass phunnels).

Also, imo, I think the way the vase is made will make the hookah tip over! Eek. Because the support on the bottom looks small

I think something like this:
http://www.theshisha.com/shopcart/pr...cat=287&page=1

or like thisI think its the best one!)

http://www.theshisha.com/shopcart/pr...cat=287&page=1

Would be better :

They are cheaper and "herbal tobaccos" are usually very horrible (the one that comes with the hookah, the hookah you posted). Hehe except Saalaam herbal shisha but I think the herbal shisha they hand out is Soex! Stay away!

If you want tobacco from that site..Out of all of 'em, I'd say get Nakhla. Idk about Maalem (its not available in the USA from what i've seen).

Hope this helps!

The Links for the KM Hookahs that are 70 convert to about 140 dollars, a rip of if you ask me, especially seeing as you can pick em up for 50 bucks in the states, God Dam Pound!!!

Hold up, wait a while, i got a confirmation email that the hookahshop.com are gonna be selling a 28" km for 50 which aint too bad cos im gonna pick it up

Wait around and i would not get any of the hookahs you picked, smoked both and both aren't really good, espically not the first one in the title.

Try finding a KM if you can, but i have been looking and it is virtually impossible to get one in the UK, im oging down to edware road tommorow to see if i can find one, and if i do il let you know

I got a High-Life Hookahs meteorite double hose hookah and its great, It cam with a clay bowl and pyrex glass bowl.

I got it from http://www.smokeshisha.com/ a coupe of months back and its been working fine and well since.

I smoke mainly soex herbal hookah tobacco because its the most easy to come by hookah tobacco here in the UK and is available in loads of different flavours.

thats because that soex herbal tobacco isnt tobacco at all, its sugar cane bottom of the barrel garbage. If youve only smoked that, then youre missing out brotha

The KM's are a rip off on that site. This one is a pretty good deal. Roughly $68 maybe a little more isn't bad for a traditional style hookah with all that stuff included. That is about a 28 inch hookah with a complete set up and two nice Nakhla flavors to start out. Those KM's cost about as much in pounds as they do here in US dollars and the dollar is worthless at the moment. My personal opininon is that most of them are rip offs at their cost here because I find it ludicris to pay for a brand name. It is less offensive to me because they seem to come with quality accessories and are usually only about 20 dollars more than they should be, but double that and it just isn't worth it.

Thanks for your Input, I actually went for that beginners kit with Nakhla Sweet Melon and DA. Going to be smoking it Friday so i will let you know. Thanks to Patelbadbpy2006 and his MYA Bambino Vid, i may also look at purchasing from Hookah John in the near future, just the shipping to the UK thats a bummer!!

Well for a good hookah I would mind the shipping really, It's better than having to keep being unsatisfied with crappy chinese models.

think about it though..its really not a rip off. if some1 in the UK was going to by a km from there local store for roughly 130 bucks you think its a rip off. but now if they by one off a US Site its like 90 for the rig and its prob not for UK.. its going to be about the same price.. or not more.

Hmm actually I didn't know the pound had fallen that far that 59.99 is about 87 bucks us. Still a bit high for a 28inch KM but a $50 generic approximately 30 inch that comes with a complete set up is going to be a much better deal.

Anyone in the U.K. who smokes hookah and pays twice what they do in America deserves the title "Lord of Shisha". You must be dedicated.
