Not really, the draw is going to be the same on a small Egyptian as it would on a large one. Just aesthetic differences.

in some ways. bigger hookahs just look more awesome and usually smoke better becuase the water tends to stay cooler longer but usually comes down to personal preference i always loved medium to large pipes most 27-33" is my sweet spot. many people like huge hookahs over 36" but i think anything from 26-32" is perfect. 12-16: is too small and anything over 33" is a little big for my tatse but you should get what you think is best. see i like medium to large hookahs because they smoke good and aren't a bitch to clean like the extra large hookahs. heres something to look at 5 star is a very good site for hookahs and tobacco for the most part! good luck

Let it be known that Pavo and Erica smoked everyone under the table, over 8 hours straight and I dont think I saw them once without a hose in their mouths.

Really depends on budget and personal preference. I think a small Mya like a bambino is a good starting point, but it might be something you would want to upgrade down the line. I have one I do not use as a daily smoke, but it comes in handy for travel.

Quality pipes will never have a dragon coming out of the stem.

      Looks like a cross between an Egyptian and Chinese pipe. If you like it though you should get it.

aladins are the best easily available pipes on the european market, theyre not solid and they might look kinda cheap, but they work well and the one I had is still ok, at a friends now tho

hoses are pretty easy to get, even in europe. I'd suggest buying that alladin pipe, and getting a washable hose along with it.

That would get you set up to get going, all you'll need otherwise is some tobacco, coals, and foil! :D

yes. not too hard to get elmas after hassount got me in contact with nargilestore, ridiculously hard to get KMs considering our only importer for this stuff is egyptian, all you can get from him is a generic egyptian pipe (not bad) or a chinese knockoff (shit). Other things you can get are random myas that occasionally drip in, alladins and random cheap crap :P
