Default Hose adaptors?

Alrighty....very excited my KM "As" hose came into today and its HUGGGGE. Did i mention im excited. so here's the deal. My current arghile is generic i believe, the KM hose will not fit propperly in the stem (seems to large) I was wondering if there were adaptors for this. I wont bother sanding down my hose, as I do plan on upgrading to either a KM or a Nour in the near future. Any idea's anyone?

my regular KM hose fits fine in any hookah ive encountered. As well as my Grand hose (for some reason the end you plug in on this hose is larger than my KM)

Ah yes, Cnphotobrings up a good point, different thickness hose grommets will dictate weather it fits in the port or not as well.

there is actually no hose gromment. It didn't come with one, the stock hose seated perfectly in the stem without one

so your stock hose fit snugly into your hookah without a grommet...? it sounds like ya had one of those "traditional" chinese hookahs which try to imitate egyptian style, and screw with it... anywho id say try and find a pipe or tube that fits inside the AS hose, and that the other side with a will fit into the hookah with a grommet... good luck man!

As far as adapters, i dont think they make one for your situation. What i would do is sand down the hose end and then refinish it. Or, i would go to some hardware store and rig something up to the hookah. Perhaps a small like 12in DIY hose that fits in the hookah form a hardware store, then attach your KM to that. It wont look as pretty, but it will get it smoking.

If you have a chinese that you don't use you can make a simple PVC wide gauge hose. Still not like a KM or Razan but works better and it becomes washable.
