Re: Does size matter?
There is a slight difference in heat but the water generally makes that moot. If the pipe is too tall then you need greater girth to get a good draw due to resistance and aerodynamics and all that physics stuff. Smaller ones are lighter and easier to carry and clean. larger ones have generally more solid construction and more room to pool smoke. There seems to be a better selection of nice looking replacement bases for medium and small hookahs. That is about it best I can tell.
