fully assembled, bottom of vase to top of bowl.

Sometimes sites don't include the bowl on there, but fairly certain most do.

thought it was to the top of the stem, not the bowl since bowls will vary in size. I've never actually measured any of my rigs lol. btw, where abouts on LI are you?

Yeah to me it makes sense to measure to the top of the stem, and NOT to the bowl, but in my experience when I measured...granted I haven't measured all my hookahs, its been to the top of the bowl....

I've always understood it was the length of the pipe with the base, excluding the bowl.

Some sites skew the numbers a bit by measuring with a bowl on. That's a bit underhanded in my opinion. There are so many people that put a lot of pride into having the tallest hookah that they know are going to buy the one with the most inches. Seems like a bit of size anxiety myself lol.

From bottom to top buddy. Im rockin a 36' km caravan and a 42" Km also. I had 2 of those lil pumpkin hookahs, but the weight of the hose just made them tip over, So Im stickin with the big hookahs from now on. I ended up givin the two smaller ones to some buddies who are now hooked and wanna order larger ones also. I think its crazy how popular hookah has become in the past 6 months. Im glad I found this site.

the length of the right hookah size for you should be the tip of your middle finger to your shoulder, so if you got one too long, then scientifically you are smoking the wrong thing, and are just cheating.

I dont know why I wrote that, but I thought it was base to top of stem....a tangiers bowl can give you an extra foot lol

Yea, after a mishap with my syrian and the base broke, i had to get a new base from Sahara Smoke. I think my hookah is about 4" taller now maybe an extra inch or two from the vortex. There is not a lot of smoke capacity in teh vase, but that doesnt really matter much
