Important is the quality of thesmoke column (dont know the right english word) and that the shisha is densely.
All this points are met by MYA shishas.

// Shisha is the arabic word for hookah

you want a good stem, something thats wide so the draw is easier.

you want a good purge valve, to help with heat management.

you want sturdy construction so it will last long.

you want an ashtray thats big enough to do the job.

you want something that wont be hard to clean. MYAs have common chambers and are a bitch to clean, but they are at least not plated chambers.

and he's right about the shisha bit.

You need one with wide smoke channels - from the pipes in the smoke column ( the metal thingy that goes into the glass base) to the hose. Also it has to be airtight so the less parts the better - no fillets and parts that screw into each other. A large ashtray to stop you coal from burning the carpet is also good. The best ones are egyptian made. Khalil Mamoon (KM) is one of the best if not THE best. ( some will disagree ). A washable hose is preffered due to practicality altho many use leather and steel coils hoses to stick to tradition. Do not wash those with water because it rusts the coil and sends rust into your lungs ( instant tetanos ) - Just smack it around and blow out the dust. Watch hookah vids and tutorials on youtube - The give much info.
