One of the main things for me is looks. The taller ones just look nicer in my opinion.

Plus Ive heard people say taller hookahs cool down the smoke faster because it has more travel to the base. Not sure how true that is though.

Honestly, as long as your rig has wide enough ports and isnt tiny, you will get comprobable smoke. The reason why it wont affect you much from 26" to 36" is because the smoke is traveling too fast to "cool down" any more, plus the end result is that it cools down from the water.

Its pure aesthetics at one point.

Yes, as long as the downstem and ports on your hookah are wide enouph, you can get great smoke out of pretty much any hookah. Generally though, it's only the name brand ones that have wider downstems. My 16" generic has a tiny downstem compared to my 13" QT, so I always get much better smoke from the QT.

I'd rather have a well built/designed small hookah over a larger crappy one. I'd rather have a well built/designed larger hookah over a similarly built/designed small hookah.

unless it's ugly.

or really expensive.

or really tall.

I have a 30 inch temsah tri metal and a mya qt along with a couple other hookah and honestly I smoke out of the qt because it still gives me great smoke and flavor and is easy to clean.

I have a 21" HB caterpillar and a 10" pumpkin. I have notice when I went up from the 10" to the 21", the smoke was a lot smoother. I hope to get a 30" at least soon.

The difference is purely aesthetic.

I have a fairly large hookah, not sure on size too lazy to measure. My only complaint is I have to use the bathtub to clean it, sink just aint big enough! I have used a smaller hookah, again not sure on size because it was my roommates, and it smokes essentially the same as my big one but he could clean it easily in the sink.

My next hookah will be a smaller one for sure.

I like taller hookahs for the look, like main others have said. What I like to do is, if I'm smoking at my house I like to use my 34" KM, but if I'm going to a party I like to bring my 16" Mya. Both smoke amazing just one is easy to take on the go.

It's a beast for a small hookah... you know it turns you on! I'd put it up against any of the big boys!
