Re: KM Americana Mini
I have a 22" Temsah Mini-wheat which smokes wonderfully. There is a slight restriction to the draw, but hardly something I'd ding the overall worth of the hookah for. I don't notice any issues with the heat, but I've also been smoking in the cold New England fall weather. The stem is sturdy and solid and although I will say the welds are crap it still looks wonderful despite the one hideous weld on the lower part of the stem. It might not smoke like a full sized KM/Temsah but its well worth the convenience of the size and it isn't much of a concession to make because I like the slightly restricted draw. I picked it up for $35 shipped and its been a good investment.
