Default Measuring height of Hookahs

Hi Guys,

When you read the height of a hookah on a website, or measure the height yourself, is the measurement from the bottom of the base to the top of the bowl, or to the top of the stem with no grommet or bowl?

Cheers

Macka

well, ive heard and seen some hookahs measured with the bowl that comes with them, some measured with a non descriptive bowl, some just from base to top of stem, etc.

usually you get base to top of stem but some places dont and on the hand made rigs the response is "well they vary" (i dont find that to be an excuse but what ever)

if your buying a mya then ya i would expect it to be an exact base to tip but on the other rigs i would expect it to be a close estimate but maybe not exact

Some dealers will measure it with the bowl on top to add extra to the height of the rig. It attracts those that look more for the height of the hookah than the functionality.

^^ yep. My 26" Mya Bohemian is measured with the bowl it came with, so is the 30" AF medium solid hookah. The Mya is 22" base to tip while the AF's box says 26" and yet it is just under 25" base to tip.

Cheers guys. I think it should be from base to top of stem. Seems the most sensible way.

Note: I've changed my sig to reflect haha

i've gone both ways...not in the sexual sense, meaning some descriptions i have read and posted are to the top of the stem and others i have read and posted go to the top of the stock bowl.
