HookahMaster, IMO what you are saying is not really true. I have both big and small hookahs and i Never noticed difference if the bowl is packed right. My current main ring is my handmade HHH (http://www.hookahpro.com/forums/inde...sg9973#msg9973
) which stands 12 inches high including the bowl. It produces the best clounds and the most flavourful smoke after the AF hookahs at the lounge. But if you get the bowl wrong it more difficult to save it unless you change the water.
