Default Non-Washable hoses...

should not exist. period.

you can't get the flavor out if you've stained the hose.
i've tried everything from compressed air,
to smoking an ass-load of mint shisha,
to putting it in the fridge.
these stupid things shouldn't be around anymore.
if you get them in the water, they're history!
if you like in a high humidity climate, your hose is ruined.
it's bullshit.
washable hoses are perfect because you can wash out any old "stain-flavor",
there's not a metal coil which makes it more flexible,
they last longer,
and they are more pleasant to smoke with.

the only bad thing about a washable hose is that they tend to cost more, which in the long run is a good investment.

I can't agree more. IDK why unwashable hoses are still around.

Perhaps because they are more traditional?

Meh but I hate the fact that they rust very easily.

Uh oh the KM hose fanboys will be beating upon you with their leather hoses for this post! LOL

Unwashable hoses for the most part exist because they are cheap. If your hookah came with a Razan or Nammor they'd have to charge more. Really all hookahs except KM's should come with a Razan or Nammor hose.

I like the non washable KM hose. They smoke really good and I have no problems with ths issues mentioned that the flavour stays in. But I have to say that I have washable and non washable hoses and I use both but at this moment I would like to say that I like the KM best...

You won't have rust issues with non-washable hoses if you do it right. :P

I have yet to have any flavor ghosting issues with either of my KM Ultimates. So far, so good. Plus, I like the draw MUCH better than the Razan I have used. I almost ordered one today, but it would be waste since I already have three KM hoses that smoke better. Plus, they are pretty.

Yeah I like my homemade hose. It lasts more than 3 months (ahem Nammor/razan).

I think ... non-washable hoses are much much better than washable hoses ... if you smoke one flavor only ... I have a hookah and a hose that are designated only for smoking Nakhla DA .. with non-washable hoses, I get better taste ...

Also, I have a problem with washable hoses ... the smoke is always harsh .. I dont know why !!!

Non-Washable hoses FTW

well theres no way i'm going to buy one hose for all 27 flavors of shisha that i have. annnnnd i don't see any difference with harsh smoke with or without a washable hose. (with proper heat management.)

hahah, yeah i know. ahh well. yes they are cheap, but you can get a non-washable for $7-$10 bucks and a washable for $15-$20. i'd rather shell out the extra $5- for a washable hose that will last awhile and i know i can use over and over again, with flavors like coffee, kiwi, earl grey, after 9, etc. (w/o ruining it)

Ya i decided a long time ago when I got rust in my mouth that I think non-washable hoses are shitty... I like the grand myself but honestly they are all the same (razan, nammor, grand)

I think i would have to agree. Manufacturers should supply people with washable hoses instead of non-washable

and there are cheaper versions of the washable hose, like the saudi washable. It has a tighter draw (think stock MYA hose), but it is washable none the less.
