Default Best Hookah for the Money?

I am looking to pick up a new hookah for personal use, and I am not sure what to buy.

I am looking to spend under $100, the cheaper the better actually.

I just want a quality hookah, that looks nice, comes with a washable hose, and pulls good.

I was thinking of just getting a Mya QT but I am considering getting a KM or similar.

I would just get a mya qt i have smoked out of km's and i own a qt and i cant tell much diff! pretty much same quality in the smoke the only thing is the km's look nicer and cost a bit more.
but if you are looking for a quality hookah under 100 i would get the qt! I got mine for 40 bucks it is a good working cheap hookah! it is sturdy too doesn't feel like it is made of cheap quality material or anything ..I would deff recommend it!

I second the nours - they are great quality and good price. There is enough vase variety that you should be able to find something you like.

The myas will all smoke the same, and the KM's will all smoke the same.

Myas are harder to clean and made in China though.

Common Chambers. And in most Mya models, the center is very rough, almost mountainous, and there's no way to get the ghost flavors out of that area.

Mya Diva and a nammor hose. I have one and it smokes just as well as my KM does. Its also a lot cheaper and portable.

I think I might go with a KM.

What would you recommend? Are the hoses that come with them washable? I want something around 24" tall.

they are not washable. a km that small i've heart negative reviews about, but i'm eager to try out myself. see if you can find someone who owns one and knows what they are talking about.

After looking around, I can't really find any KM's that small.

I think I might just have to go with a Mya, the QT will work fine, it will give me more money for upgrades.

So what is the best hose? Razan?

i would debate how hard they are to clean, i will say they will rip up a new cleaning brush really quick but i found a good scrubbing with dawn soap then filling the top part of the stem with lemon juice for like 30 seconds then a final rinse is a good enough to kick out any and all flavor (i even do it the day after i smoke right before i pack it up again and have no lingering flavors). the dawn will degrease and kick out all the junk and the lemon will essentially etch it very lightly and kill any noticeable smell/taste in it.

yes not as easy as a smooth bored stem and all but not bad at all
