Default Jumbo vs smaller vases

So in your opinion which one delivers a better, more cloud filled smoke? I was thinking that a bigger base would take longer to fill and wouldn't provide a whole lot of smoke to the person when they inhaled. A smaller base would fill in a fill up quicker and would provide more smoke when you inhaled.

It really makes no difference in smoke. Concern yourself more with how far the downstem extends into the base. You don't want the base to be so small that the downstem hits bottom (making it useless). You also don't want it so large that you have to fill the water level up into the neck as that could splash water up into your hose.

Technically, a bigger base can hold a higher volume of smoke in its "reservoir." One could infer that this feature would deliver bigger clouds. But honestly, there isn't much of a difference. The post above me is also something you should take into consideration.

m8 i tried my base with 3 different levels of water at the same coal-bowl-shisha-hose setup and all of them had the exact same smoke...the 3rd actually was pretty high cause of the diffuser so before i tried it i said "ok why did i buy the diffuser....there is not going to come smoke out from it..." but i was wrong... it was exactly the same...

Perhaps you should re-read my post.

The main advantage i can see with the large vase is that its harder to tip over(more water for weight larger surface area touching the ground). But as said before i have smoked from large and small vasees and havent seen much of a diffrence.

The only things that make the clouds better are the type of tobacco, the heat management and your lung capacity. Even with the smallest rig and hose you can get monster clouds if the tobacco and heat are right and you have the lung power to get a full draw. The largest a cloud can be is the volume of your lungs. I still suggest using a wide gauge hose and a rig with a good ID stem so that you can draw easily without fighting but the base is inconsequential.

base size volume has nothing to do with cloud size, like Kalu said it's heat/tobacco/lun capacity. Even if the area holding the smoke is different you still have to pull air through the head of the hookah (generating more smoke) to move smoke into your lungs so it's not like having extra smoke in the chamber is going to affect how much you can pull in.

Bottom line is, so long as it's functional, bases are aethetics and for making hookahs harder to tip over.
