Default Three hookahs one choice!

Me and my future room mate wanted to buy an ice chambered hookah in the very near future and we've narrowed it down to three choices. Our priorities are still kinda unclear, but our old hookah is an authentic Egyptian pipe i was given as a gift so we don't want some plastic piece of junk but still want something a bit modern. The most important concerns are 1) ice chamber/chilled effect 2) Quality 3) Multi hose for socializing and finally 4) portability.

Our three choices of pipes are...(in no order)
1- The Shecool
http://www.hookahhub.com/SheeCool-Mo...pe-p-5366.html
(only concern is the freezing, how long does it take? Is it worth it)

2- The Ice torrent
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...&idproduct=157

3-The KM Ice
http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...cks-white.html
(only one hose )

Any input would be greatly appreciated, i know the KM is the best quality but that site is pretty lame when it comes to free bees and we kinda want a bag. I've watched Sam's review of the shecool but some more input would be fantastic.

She-cool is interesting, the Ice Torrent leaks and the KM is the clear choice. Yes it's only one hose but much better construction than the Torrent.

1) ice chamber/chilled effect
Check.

2) Quality
Check.

3) Multi hose for socializing
Teach people how to share. Check.

4) portability
Maybe not to easy. Haha.


I would say go with the KM. Nothing but good words from everyone who owns an Ice. Looks like a solid piece.

I would say go for the KM then Hit the hardware store buy a brass T and a foot of hose and make it a two hose unit

or you could get a Crushed Ice Chamber from Sahara Smoke
From there site:
The brand new crushed ice chamber easily screws into place in all of our stems, and rests directly under the charcoal tray. Our ice chamber takes cooling your smoke a step farther than most: you place crushed ice into its form fitting design and then sprinkle a teaspoon of salt in, cooling it to subzero temperatures for hours. Why make a mess and risk your vase by shoving ice into it when you can rock the crushed ice chamber? Empty out crushed ice chamber after every smoking session.
friend mine has a Sahara hookah it is nice and appears to be lasting and he ordered an Ice Chamber last week but no official trial yet and I get nothing for sending you to Sahara just opening your options

In stock. Only downer is that it doesnt look like you get a KM hose with it. You would probably email them about an upgrade and you might be able to get one for just a few bucks more in the place of that hose.

The hose in that pic looks like a Caravan, easily a good substitute.

On a side note, if you do buy off ebay I highly suggest using the make an offer feature. I have saved up to 30% by making offers instead of just paying the BIN price.

Where have you bought a KM for 36 dollars?

Wrong thread. Sorry. No your are right. Actually the KM is about 20 more I think but not nearly as much difference as I thought considering the single hoses without those crazy useless ice buckets are usually closer to half a KM of the same build.

Ebay scares me as you will get a hunk of junk 99% of the time. Buying a brand name like Khalil Mamoon will grant you many things over a mass produced hunk o junk:
Quality work, you will get hard working people assembling and building the hookah for the WHOLE process. Quality metals, there will be only the top of the line metals being used in a KM, not the flimsy, cheap leftovers for the Chinese hookahs.

All I am saying is think before you buy... if you could get a KIA or a BMW for the same price or even close, why go for the KIA at all?

In even better words I bought an "Egyptian"(Chinese) hookah off of ebay a very very long time ago. The hookah looked great and performed well for a few months, then I started tasting a metal tingy taste in it while smoking. I did some investigation and found that the piece of junk was made of low quality material and was actually rusting inside. Pretty much I paid as much money for that paper weight as I could have for a KM that would still be hitting strong.

Or you buy a MYA hookah (I go 2 MYAs, the cute MYA QT and the MYA Saturn).
Every hookah of them got a very good quality.
Just the bowl and the hose arent so good.
So i would buy:
-a MYA (Mya Diva, MYA Chic, i dont find other mya hookahs in american shops, otherwise i could advise you the MYA saturn^^)
-a Phunnel Bowl
-a Nammor.

You would pay around 120 USD.

Very helpful tyvm, I honestly do want the KM but the availability as mentioned is limited! Does no one have the Shecool other then like 2 people on this site? BTW, i plan on getting a normal featured KM since ice chambers suck in the summer!
