Default Re: I want a larger Hookah

Syrians and Egyptians are traditional hookahs. E's tend to be simpler than Syrians, but both can be heavy, well built hookahs. Mostly they are made of steel or sometimes brass (brass-cored), Syrians often have ornate designs on the stems. Old style Syrians have a different head/bowl style, but many of the more modern versions have the typical Eypgtian style (bowl sits onto the of top of stem, syrians sit into the stem)

I suggest a good Kahil Mammon, larger brass cored Egyptian style. Between 22-28" is a good size, larger isn't always better. KM's are proven hookahs and very reliable. Prices are good if you shop around.

Certain MYA's are also very nice, but they are considered more of a Modern style, and seem to be having "issues" as of late with their glass.
