    So I just recently found out that my hose has a split in the side, about half way down so not something I can just cut away, and I am in the market for a new one. Before I go and just blindly buy one, I'd like to know what you hoses guys have or like and why.

    So I'm a regular at a hookah lounge in my town, and I was curious... If you could add any items to your local hookah lounge, what would they be? Are there any cleaning products/ hoses/ bases/ heads/ shisha/ etc. that you'd like to see in a lounge near you?

    Nakhla Lemon Hi.I just want to say that this is the first tobacco i have smoked. In my opinion it is an okay tobacco. I find the taste to be a bit soapy but nice. It has a dry looking appearance and a strong lemon smell. It does however smell a bit like washing up liquid. It is high quality , Not the best but acceptable. I smoked this with ice and lemon slices in my older cousins hookah in Hungary. I smoked it with a nice cold and ice filled glass of lemon ice tea (also with lemon slices). I haven't been smoking hookah for long but i have found that i don't really like dry tobaccos that much. I very much prefer wet and juicy tobaccos. the clouds were quite good but not the best. How ever due to it being strong and having a high nicotine content it was nice and relaxing and also fun to smoke. Over all its not an amazing flavour but thats just my opinion. I give it a 5.5/10. I feel as if thats a bit low but if i gave it a 6 it would feel to high. Anyway have a nice day and Thanks for reading.

    Haze shop near me had a killer deal on these today and I just couldn't resist. Have had my eye on one of these from a few different companies for a long time and I have to say I am not disappointed with my purchase. Its first bowl was packed up with some Haze Subzero with three Titanium coals up top and it was amazing throughout the hour and a half session. Thought I would share for everyone!

    Hi , i would like to know what is better. I don't smoke with others that much but when i do, i do it with 3-4 people maximum . They are always good sessions but i always feel as if a 2 hose hookah would be better. Is it worth getting a 2 hose?? Are they better?? Or should i stick with 1 hose. Give me your suggestions! Thanks for reading.

    I believe that it all depends on the draw of the hookah that you have. If your hookah has a large downstem that provides more than enough airflow, then you really shouldn't have to worry about problems with suction. Alas, if you don't want to sacrifice your purge valve for an extra hose, I'd recommend looking into a 3 hose hookah with a large downstem, and then taking off one of the 3 hose stems and replacing it with a purge valve. p.s. Make sure that the hose stems are removable and are able to fit a purge valve on them before you throw hundreds of dollars into it.

    I have a KM Platinum Kamanja that I would try that two hose adapter thing on, because the hookah itself has massive draw... But the other 99% of the time I vote 1 hose hookahs because it allows for a better session not fussing with the airflow, as has been mentioned.

    If you did want to expand to multiple hoses you can purchase auto sealing hose adapters. Some more modern styled hookahs will fit these adapters on the purge ports and will let you add an additional hose. The trade off, which is quite large, is that you can no longer purge the base. This is not much of a problem if the people you are smoking with are constantly pulling on the hookah and not letting it sit for too long without taking a pull. A more "traditional" way (and I use that loosely) is that each smoker has their own hookah and the host tends to each of them as the themselves are smoking and their guests are smoking. Personally my friends bring their hookahs with them so I trust them to tend to their own setups. Its all up to you and your friends man, experiment and find out!

    My all time favorite hose has been the original Glass D-Hose. When it broke I was a bit sad, but I quickly replaced it with the slightly uglier acrylic version for cheap. I am looking to order a Kya Interlude (Acrylic) as it was the basis for the D-Hose in the first place, as I just want to the look and feel of the glass hose without the need to worry about it shattering if I manhandle it improperly. My second favorite hose use to be my Narbish, but I was recently gifted a Starbuzz Royal Egyptian. The draw is so open the hose is just so large that I quickly fell in love with it. It now holds second place in my collection and is now the hose people fight over when they visit me for sessions. Its only downside is that I can not wash it out, so I have to ensure people do not smoke vastly different flavors through it so that the ghosting is minimized. Third favorite would now be my Narb. The draw is nearly identical to the Royal Egyptian but has the benefit of being washable. It was also half the price of a Namoor when I bought it, so that was a huge plus. I do, soon, want to swap it out of my rotation for a Namoor or for a Kya Interlude.

    Thank you very much for the reply. I will stick to one hose hookahs.

    As a rule of thumb one hose is better. With multiple hoses you gotta keep your finger on the hose that's not being used. If you dont you'll have flow problems.

    It would be nice to see more of your videos more often. They are amazing and your are the only hookah expert i watch and listen to. Could you please do a review of Al Fakher or Soex cinnamon flavour. Keep going with what you are doing. You are awesome.

    ...couple more pennies to the pot... I have to say praise about the starbuzz d hose. Just the regular one. Washable, durable, easy to clean... My go-to for sure. I like glass, but am clumsy as all hell...

    Hands down the regular shika hose. I've had it for going on two years. It's washable fairly sturdy and has been put to intensive use. I swear it's the best 20 I've spent hookah related. It's a bit restricted but that's it's one flaw even though I don't consider it one.

    Oh, certainly. It's pretty thick glass. In my hand, it feels like it weighs maybe about 20oz. I dunno if dropping it on the floor would survive, but on a couch would be fine. The problem with the glass tip is that, because it's heavy, and because the hose itself is more rigid, the glass tip has a tendency to wonder. I've had it fall off my desk a couple times.

    Thanks guys. I have actually had a chance to use the Dream hose before and it was enjoyable. Other than the fact that the owner removed the glass tip and we were smoking from the nub it attaches to. Would you say the glass is thick enough to handle a couple drops to carpet or to the couch? I think I may be looking at getting the Dream Hose Hybrid 2.0

    I use my Dream Hose almost exclusively now. My other hoses just sit on the coat rack in my closet. The glass one is fantastic, but I find the mouthpiece is a little... uh... "phallic"... and it's really heavy. If you want something lightweight but still sturdy, the acrylic is a great option, and I use the acrylic mouthpiece on both the "glass" and "acrylic" hoses that I own. Huge draw, more than most washables, and it's much easier to clean and dry. I can't say they don't ghost, but I find the ghosting is much less than a traditional washable. I can't comment on the aluminum one, as @DK9310 pointed out, as I don't have one, but I've heard great things about that one as well.
