Re: big hoses vs little hoses
many people preffer hoses such as the Nammor and Razan because of their wider gauge. These hoses have a smoother pull and perform well when smoking ''big cloud'' type tobaccos such as SB and the like. However, for more traditional tobaccos where the focus is on flavor and not cloud volume, I've found the narrower standard hoses much more prefferable. The narrow gauge tends to make for a more concentrated stream of smoke and therefore a much more robust and focused flavor.I have both a Nammor and a Razan and Honestly both are rarely used. I much preffer my standard Syrian/egyptian hoses. In fact of the 6or7 hoses I own,I have an unwashable Syrian hose which I've been using for years and continue to use on a daily basis. I swear by it. Just my opinion of course.
