Latest Shisha Order Thread

Question

Well I figured that I would start my own thread on this for two reason. 1. to get everybody talking about what they ordered recently, and 2. Because I changed my order from hookahset.com to medwakh.com.

I needed to order coals so I I figured I would try new stuff. I placed an order at Medwakh.com for a kilo of coco Jamra's, a tin each of Othmani baklava, Turkish coffee and double apple because I'm still searching for that great double apple that tastes strongly like star anise, but not like black licorice. I know it's out there because that was my first shisha, but they don't sell it here in the states. Anyway I digress.

The Good:

Placing the order with medwakh.com was awesome and when you click on their link to facebook, a 10% discount gets automatically added to your cart.

They also carry Nirvana brand Shisha which is good to know for when I'm ready to try that very strong tobacco.

Their shipping is very reasonable, like with social smoke, it's only $6.95 for everything that I added to my cart. Which brings me to:

The Bad:

I tried placing an order with hookahset.com yesterday and the shipping said $6.95. GREAT!!! I placed my order for the coco mazaya, a tin of platinum Bahrain apple Tangiers cane mint and about 5 other Al Fakher flavors to try.

Well, they don't have the Tangiers cane mint, so I changed it to Maraschino Cherry but they also wanted to charge me $23.50 for shipping and the order was only $35.

The kicker is that they are in Jersey and so am I. So I canceled the order, told them to go F&^% themselves an placed the order with Medwakh.com

The Ugly:

I was really looking forward to trying the coco mazaya, but it seems I'm not going to be able to try them right now until I find a reputable company to order from that does NOT charge an arm and a leg for shipping.

I guess this is what happens to me when I try to deviate from Social Smoke. They are a great company to order from, no hassles, shipping is always $5.95 and it's free with an order of $75 or more. They have great flavors and their personal hand holding is great, specially for somebody like me that still considers himself a newbie.

So where can I order the coco mazaya from? Where do you guys order from? Everybody else charges about $12 for shipping but I don't need to place a large order right now, so it's not worth it for me to pay that much for shipping.

No, thank YOU, for making me just order some Mazaya...  Tropicano 250g inbound in a few days... as well as some Titanium flats..  You talking about the orange Mazaya you just smoked got me missing all my Mazaya flavors (all gone, except two apples.. but that's how it always works out for me..)

Ordered this yesterday for the gf. The price was right and I worked with pharaohs hookahs before and for Chinese they are quality. This little guy is 18 inches I think. Pretty excited to see how it works. Also got a nuhose with it. ImageUploadedByHookah.org1453508288.0034

They way you feel about Mya is how I feel about pharaohs anything. Hope it's a good hookah. I'm guessing nothing fancy was needed. Still nice to have a simple hookah sometimes.

Well pharaohs don't blatantly lie so if I'm going to go with a Chinese mini hookah it would be them or Sahara since they have been innovating stuff lately. There's a bunch of companies I don't buy from since they lie or cheat the community. It's all about integrity for me!

Has mya lied or cheated? I can't say I've seen that happen, but I have to agree with matt I feel iffy on pharos products but I do lack experience with them or seeing much, I've mentioned before my friend owns a mya bambino and its actually really good and holds up against my hookahs, my only issues is the purge valve, bowl and hose it comes with, the bowl would be fine but they're harder to work with and break extremely easily, the hose is okay as long as you go into it knowing its unwashable, I didn't, that's why I had to throw my first km hose away, granted I had my own issues with that as well starting out so I steer clear of unwashable, when people I know want to get into hookah the mya bambino is actually my first recommendation as long as they get a nu hose and Egyptian clay bowl, that's what my friend rolls with now and it works just fine

I really like Mya hookahs, and each one that i have had has been very nice. I would always get a KM over them, but they hold up well and work great. I hope you enjoy your hookah and it works for what you need it for.

Oh absolutely they have. They lie about crystal bases, bohemian vases, making the first purge ports, having custom designs when they steal most from Syrian designs, the freeze copies, really hardly anything is theirs. They say the use brass but it's not brass too so they are cheating the community in that aspect.

My friend's bambino is great, it was a great way for us to get introduced to hookah and like I said he smokes out of it regularly, and the design of it really caught his attention, personally I got into Egyptian hookahs because I'm in love with the traditional styles of pipes so its almost exclusively preference on looks, thats why I steer clear of electroplated egpyptians and such, I would love to get my hands on one of those gorgeous authentic Syrian or Turkish pipes one of these days

They are tiny. I would say no. The glass phunnel I had held 10 grams max and was basically as thin as a mod bowl

OK so those are out then. I love my fumo glass hookah but the bowl is very small which is good when I want just an hour session. So I'm thinking for my next funnel I'm going to order either the shika sandstorm or the oblivion. I've like those two for a very long time and now I have a reason to get them. :)

Shika bowls pull one solid round and leave you some wiggle room as well, like I've gone heavy with alchemist blend double apple and managed to pull two rounds of coal from it easily, but generally its good for one round stretched out at the end with a wind cover without going bad on you, the sandstorm is on my list too for double apple, I've heard it holds around 17 grams of tobacco? On foil I find you can either pull two rounds by using three coals each or go one round with 4 coals, a lot of flexibility in between just because its so freaking wide and shallow.

The website says it holds 20-26 grams.

I'm also looking at the godfather glass bowl http://5starhookah.com/Godfather-Glass-Phunnel-Bowl-MSGFGB.htm

but I think I want the shika more.

Well so far I've been good with my fumo jar so I think I can handle the glass aspect of it. I don't know why but lately I've had a hard-on for glass accessories.

Its definitely another good option, if the sale for the Tangier's small is still going you can try to snag one, its kind of like my alien but a little bit less wide and quite a bit deeper, seems to hold a decent amount more but still around the same, and its very sturdy with thick good clay

To be honest it actually wasn't that bad. The fake lotus fit perfectly on this one and it had a smooth draw. I enjoyed smoking out of it and was getting amazing clouds. Maybe it's just me but I'm not too picky. All I want out of a session is good flavor and the least amount of heat management as possible.
