With longer downstems, you still have the stem submerged under just as much water, so the smoke is exposed to pretty much the same amount of water. All you are doing is storing more smoke above the water.

As for the total amount of smoke the user gets, it will be the same. You will displace just as much by inhaling. I never understood what the big deal for you guys was. I think you just like the look of more smoke in the base.
yea, ive always wondered this too. My noobie hookah friends with cheap pumpkins put milk in their base to get "thicker clouds" and they submerge the stem about 2-3mm underwater because they think it gets you more smoke.....i then show them my syrian....hehe
