Default The bendy straw diffuser

Well I figured I would give it a try and share with everyone my experiance...

As far as smoke quality its not much diff, but the big pluses its alot quiter and doesn't vibrate nearly as much, so I could see doing it again.
The down side the pull is more restricted... Im sure if I was testing this in a larger hookah it wouldn't be as bad but on my mya qt it does take alot more effort to pull, I guess Ill try it on my km when it arives and see how it pulls.

All in all it was a plesent experement, and I was able to watch tv with alot more ease, and didn't have to worry about chasing my coals all over the place, so It worked quite well, but having used a heba diffuser I would say it is worth the ten dollars but, If you don't use diffusers, This is a great way to shut your hookah up when watching a movie.

+1 to the movies + straws.
i found something that surprisingly worked pretty damn well, but it did restrict the draw a bit, but not enough to bother me.
ok, i got some crappy webcam pics, so bear with me.
this is the stem to my Nakhla Egyptian rig, size comparison with my thumb

then, i take the old purge valve from my chinese rig, which has 3 holes along its circumference

then i sorta just shove and twist it in, till it "sticks" it doesnt go in, but it stays there and seals. then, voila, diffuser

not a bad idea... if the holes where alittle bigger it wouldn't be much restriction, the reason the straws make it harder to pull is it ads a good inch to the stem length.. so I had to use less water which in turn makes smoke thiner, and so forth... lol your idea would work perfect, to bad the holes aren't bigger, I have that same piece on a garbage hookah I had bought.

also, i put slightly more water in my base when i use a diffuser cause the water shakes less and therefore bubbles up less.
