Re: Does it really work? (a discussion of all hookah techniques, topic changes)
I have mixed opinions on diffusers. I made a small plastic one that is reminiscent of the Heba Diffuser
On a medium to large hookah with a normal hose, it's not really necessary. I've tried with and without of my 26" Egyptian and don't notice any difference. When you move to a Nammor hose with a larger draw then a Diffuser might be more necessary.
On a smaller hookah, like my Mini Mya Acrylic, the diffuser helps somewhat with smoke density and the loud gurgling, but i have never noticed any enhanced flavors with my diffuser on...
