Mob Box - Light Hookah

When it comes to buying a hookah, especially for the first time, people always ask the same question: what is the best hookah to buy? The simple answer is: it depends! Of course, some hookah is way better than others. Depending on the material and the country where it is manufactured contributes heavily to the price. But also a brand name that is expensive doesn’t necessarily mean you are getting what you paid for.

In this article I will compile a small list of the diverse line of MOB hookah products helping to decide what is the best hookah to buy based on a combination of design, performance, and durability of the product, and also the best hookah to buy depending on your budget.
