I think the post you were referring to was saying to fill the vase higher on the stem than he did with the bell vase to make the amount of space in the vase equivalent. What you're saying is correct, if you have the water at 1" above the stem there won't be a difference in between the two vases. If you instead fill the water 1.5-2" over the stem in a jumbo(which is what I think they were saying) the pull will be more draggy.
