Default ZEN hookah

okay I'm a super noob hookah smoker. I am thinking of buying a really cheap one and my friends recommended me to buy the "zen hookah." So I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this hookah is good or bad. (pretty low budget around $40)

thx

And yet another one stuck in the cross hairs of low budget hookah spending.

First question have you tried hookah before?

If you never tried hookah then i suggest you do before you start spending money.

second go with what bradedup said mya QT or the bambino are great for starter hookahs

Good Luck

Yeah my first hookah was the Mya QT, which would blow allll my friends cheap/chinese ones out of the water. They're also around that price range, some online store almost always give you a package deal as well, like free shisha samples, mouth tips, cleaning kit etc.

Thanks for the advises everyone, it looks like mya QT is going to be my first hookah. But sadly I'm goin to have to wait another 2-3 weeks to save up some more cash.

btw; I've been smokin hookah for about a year already and really liked it.

I was pretty gung-ho about getting my first hookah- I rushed out to a local shop to buy an overpriced paperweight.

There is nothing wrong with the Zen except the vase size. Go with the Sahara Genie, 16 dollars more. The stem on the Zen is the Genie stem anyways you might as well get the vase it was intended to use. Since I actually own and use one everyday I thought I would throw my two cents in rather than just spamming MYA.

If you decide to go with the genie, I would go about it the following way;

1. Buy the zen for 23.95.
2. Buy small genie vase for 15.95.

You get an extra zen base...in case you break yours for about the same price..actually cheaper by like a nickel?


Only disadvantage I can see is that the genie carrying case might be different...idk.


EDIT: not cheaper if you want the 2 hose....as it costs 4.00 extra for a zen two hose and nothing extra for a genie two hose...

I got a Mya Econo-Gelato at Hookah-shisha.com . It was only $37, and it's at the lower end. A small hookah, but I havent had any complaints about it so far. If I had the money at the time I would have upgraded to the QT. Either way, it's a great beginners hookah. Easy to clean, small, and at the right price.

the ZEN + Gennie vest sounds like a good deal. But i think i'm gona save up some more cash and get a mya QT since there are good comments about them everywhere in the forum.

and!
So I looked around the forum and other website and found out that a small vase (zen's vase) will give you a harsh smoke. But i am not 100% sure of this fact. And I kinda wana know the pros/cons of a small vase.


Edit: sorry about my English, i know its bad :P

They both have the same bag. Standard Sahara small duffle bag. Very nice bag at that. Only thing I would worry about doing the combo buy is the downstem on the Zen version may be chopped off slightly to fit. Check with Sahara to see but I would bet it's not. Jonathan or Churlz is always stopping in so send em a PM.

Dood the Bambino is where it is at. Had mine for 4 years before i broke the base by dropping it. Im going to get another one as soon as i get my tax refund. Plus if you get a thicker hose like razan or nammor you get crazy smoke trust me.
