Default Jumping on the km bandwagon...

I just ordered a 40" km exotica hookah today and I cannot wait to get it, since my last large hookah rusted over I have been stuck with my mya qt as my only hookah, so I figured I would go 40" to compensate... lol

But on a more serious level, I have heard nothing but good things about these hookah's, and I do plan on letting this be the last hookah I ever buy, so hopefully it lives up to its hype...

There are a few people here with kms and there where acouple things I was wondering about though, which I will probably have to wait a week to find out...

First off, does the bottom of the stem being rounded have an effect on the smoke, I know the little bolt looking thing almost worked as a diffuser by breaking the bubbles up more, but Im not sure what effect having it rounded would do....

Second with more height will it effect the draw, I figured even if it does It would be a better draw than your standard hookah anyways.

Im not trying to brag about it or anything I just want to know as much as possible about these hookah's, I have only owned 4 hookahs in my life, 2 mya's an acrilyc and the qt, an egyptian, and the cheap piece of trash The Ice torrent which now lives its days out as a reading lamp...

So please Educate me on the ways of the km, lol.

Not sure about the rounded part at the bottom of the sem either, it dont seem to work as a diffuser, but it dont efeect the smoke at all.

I had a 36" tri-metal and draw was easy as my smaller KM's, so draw shouldnt be that hard on the 40" beast.

Oh btw they is one downer on having a hookah that size, cleaning is a mofo, i hated cleaning my 36" thats why i sold it

cleaning larger hookahs isnt a hassle imo, im not sure if theres a diffrence in big vs small but i know there are a few threads dedicated to finining out, personally i cant stand small hookahs.

When you first get it you'll have to use some sort of lubricant on the vase grommet most likely to slip that sucker in. I've used olive oil, glycerin, and vegetable oil, and they all worked well.

The draws about the same between my 30" and my 41" KM... The bowls had the biggest difference to be honest than the actual hookahs themselves.

Merrr....the nut thing at the bottom doesnt really do anything there....I imagine it is there just as part of the manufacturing process. Draw difference = none.

I have a 36" Tri metal KM, it has excellent draw, so that shouldn't be a problem. And as everyone else has said, the thing at the bottom of the downstem doesn't really affect anything.

As for the vase grommet, everyone seems to complain about these, I like to view it as air tight perfection I just get some water on the grommet and the lip of the vase, and then use a gentle twisting motion and she slides right in there. It's serisouly amazing what a little water will do. For removing it, I just hold the vase between my feet and use a gyrating kind of motion the the stem.

I've had my KM for a year, and haven't had anything but good times with it . . . you've made a good buy. The only thing I've ever had to replace was the ball bearing and that's it, just make sure you take a few mins to clean and dry and it should last you a long time. Most KMs come with brushes so it really isn't that hard at all . . .

Have fun.

thanks for all the information, I can't wait, As far as cleaning goes I am a cleaning freak when it comes to cleaning takes me about 20mins to clean my qt , And I think it would be much easier to clean than a mya that comes apart, I mean you just scrub the down tube and rinse it out... A trick I learned is keep a water bottle handy, It makes rinsing much easier.... By the way, I love the rifle cleaner idea, I will deffinatly do that...

Cleaning isn't that bad if you have the right tools... Also just a side comment, I'm a clean freak as well, esp. after all my microbio, patho, and bio related courses. But, i can't seem to visualize the amount work that needs to be done to a QT that it takes 20 mins. Do you polish it as well?

I can clean my hookah in less than 1 min. Just rinse the bowl and run your finger around it once to get any excess shisha from the previous session, then take the stem, run water through it for about 2 seconds to get any glycerine out of the inside, dump out old water, sprinkle in baking soda and a dash of water, shake it once or twice to coat the inside, dump, rinse, and fill. DONE.
