Default How much better...

So I bought my first hookah 7 months ago from a local smoke shop, not knowing anything about them. From looking at others, I belive it's a 19'' mya, mod bowl, and same regular hoses. It's not bad, puts out quite a bit of smoke, but heat managment is a pain.(because of the bowl) I was looking at getting a 32-36" KM, but was wondering how much better is the KM. Money is tight, but might as well get the best while I'm at it

thanks!

I have a KM and to be honest, I am annoyed by how big it is. My advice, look at the Syrian hookahs, they are really good ..

well, I would like to try a large hookah, since I have a smaller one. I'm pretty set on something ATLEAST 30-38". I would like a multi hose (2 or 3) but I rather have better smoke, less hoses, than not as good smoke and more hoses. My mya is a 2 hose anyway, other ppl can smoke that one while I have a new one

If money is tight and your old MYA rig is doing fine, i wouldnt go out and buy a KM, it might smoke better, but if you buy like a phunnel/vortex and a razan/nammour hose, you will still get monster clouds from your MYA

And instead of wasting you doh on a KM just get some shisha and the phunnel and razan

And i've heard the bowls the KM's come with atm are crap so you will need to get a new one anyway

there is nothing wrong with the bowl just to many people crying about it, i smoke out of my km bowl last night for almost two hour good flavor all through out the sessions and no wasted shisha afterwards, but sadly my nephew broke my bow today so now i am stuck with just my phunnel which i dont like to use

It's a bit like AF depends on what batch you got lol, it might be decent or it might be crap.

one of mine is fine, the other is useless and one broke in the post

well, everyone should invest in a phunnel or vortex at somepoiint anyway, but as far as the hookah goes you cant go wrong with Nour or KM. I've found thehookah.com has the best Nour selection.

Just stick to the Mya and get a new bowl. You said that you thought that teh bowl was your issue. I have not had too much trouble with the mya bowl. Frankly sometimes a bowl just takes a little experimenting to get right. You are going to need to learn to use any bowl you get before you smoke it properly. Seems to me you might want to give that bowl some more time and learn to properly use the wind cover.

If you are insistant order a classic Egyptian bowl. They are cheap and they are great. They come in various sizes and perform very well. There is a reason they have been the most popular bowl style for many generations of shisha smoker.

Eventually it is worth picking up a funnel or a vortex. I don't really know how the vortex smokes. Never had one. My small funnel has always treated me pretty well but I use my small and large Egyptian more than anything.

If money is tight, I would just get a Phunnel bowl or Vortex bowl and your session will be much more enjoyable. The Mya is a perfectly good Pipe, unless it smells like asshole.

haha, yeah, the hoses do have a smokey flavor to them. That's another excuse to get a km. I never washed my hookah regularly when I first got it and was wondering why I was getting crap in my mouth. I've been washing the hoses, not sure if they're washable, but it prevents stuff from getting into my mouth. (yes, I know washing most hoses can rust, but nothing comes out of the hose while smoking. works for me)
