Hookah Size

Question

Guest darkbeer

Hello Everyone,

I have read in the FAQ section that you all say " Don't buy very large (tall) hookah. Medium size hookahs often smoke much better. "

As I am new to this what do you consider to be tall or medium size? This will be just for me so a single hose is all I need. I just do not know how tall of one I need. Do the taller ones work better for different kinds of tobacco. Sorry to ask so many questions. I am just trying to figure it all out before I buy one.

Thank you

Darkbeer

the taller ones dont work better for different types of tobacco.

You have to suck harder to get the same smoke out of the taller ones. What really matters is the size of the vase in the bottom where the smoke is saved.

So the bigger the vase the better? Or is it the taller vase or shorter vase better? Thank you for the reply.

I beg to differ. I have consistently had better smoking experiences with taller hookahs. I really haven't experienced any issues with having to breathe in deeper or harder because of the size. Perhaps there is a noticeable difference when you smoke two side-by-side.

its the bigger the hookah after all. its not that u have to inhale harder or anything its just that the smoke thicker because there is less space for it to move. i have both a big and small hookah and smoke a lot. so ive noticed this consistently.

I have a realatively small (about 17 inch) and a realatively big (about 32 inch) hookah. To tell you the truth, I don't notice a huge difference. What I HAVE noticed, is that I get more smoke with the smaller hookah, but a smoother, cooler smoke in the larger hookah. It is not a huge difference by any means though.

The larget hookah, however, is much harder to clean. Therefore, I tend to smoke the smaller one a bit more. It is just flat out more manage able. If you are planning on going with just one hookah, I feel that something in the 24 inch catagory would be best. Kind of like a "best of both worlds' thing.

I've said before that the smaller ones put out more smoke, because in a small base, the smoke has less room to expand. So you've got a lot of condensed smoke, and when you breathe it in and exhale it, it all expands and comes out as a huge cloud.

My small one is about 12in. You can see a picture of it under the Hookah Pictures topic. And I'm going to post it in the gallery if we have that yet.

Although I don't like really small hookahs, I believe when choosing a medium/larger hookah, the wider the pipe the better/smoother pull you will get. The small pipes make you pull way too hard and is not as enjoyable.

I'venoticed that smaller hookahs tend to pull a lot harder as well. I really noticed it once I smoked out of a larger hookah. Then it was really pronounced.

I have many different sizes and I say this from experience.

A larger pipe will be much easier to pull and the smoke will be much cooler. Larger pipes often provide a considerable more amount of smoke than a smaller pipe.

A small pipe will often times be harder to pull and the smoke will not be as cool. They do not have the volume of a larger pipe, thus the smoke has less time to cool and be filtered.

@When talking about medium and large hookahs there is one difference. ize in height... I have hookahs of many sizes but prefer my medium Amy hookah which measures 26" compared to my Khalil Mamoon large hookah which measures 34". There are many factors such as water level, down stem diameter, hose length and diameter, base volume, bowl, how the bowl is packed, how many holes are in the foil and the size of those holes, type of tobacco etc. That will determine your smoking session experience in clouds, flavor, intensity, ect .
