Default KM Americana Mini

ok so i saw sambooka's review on the Americana and decided i would check out hookahstore.com to maybe pick one up myself. i was really never considering getting another large hookah, and i am currently searching for a medium sized hookah. i found the KM Americana mini which is 22' and looks great to me. and with the current offer of 25% off everything, in total (with shipping) it would be $70 for that, a windcover and the 150 g of shisha, 10 mouthtips and 2 rolls of coal that all their hookahs come with. its obviously a GREAT deal, but has anyone smoked this hookah? opinions please...

I am confused!?? I have a 28" KM and she smokes beautifully! I was actually looking at one of the mini's because I like the KMs around the 20"ish mark.
I was looking at this one http://www.hookahstore.com/khalil-ma...kah-p-313.html

I am still deciding if I am going to get it or not, but you can definitely expect a review if I get it. I am even more curious now to see how they smoke.

I have that same km as fritz1 and it is great. It was called "The Fountain" where I got it. Really heavy and solid, almost the same weight as my 36" AF.

Sorry scoop but you are wrong in this matter. I too heard that some small KMs are light and poorly made overall, like the small HOL. But this partucular model, The Fountain, is really really good, solid and heavy, so you can't say that about all KM models.

I have a short Egyptian that is like 10 inches maybe?? And you can definitely feel the heat of the smoke, even with a ton of ice in the base. Too bad, cuz it is a very convenient hookah and well put together.

.. I have a 28" KM Amer and I just put cold water in the base. I have been smoking more lately and later in the night the water becomes room temp and still provides a great smoke. I imagine that a 22" would be just as good with a little ice in the base (for a little extra help to help keep the smoke cooler since it is traveling a shorter distance)

I am considering one of the minis from hookahstore.com just to see how they are. I kinda like that the stem is small enough to fit in my kitchen sink. It is why I use my 28" a lot. I love the taller hookahs I have, but hate getting halfway in the bathtub to clean it .. lol .. but I keep all my cleaning supplies in the spare bathroom and cleaning is getting quicker and less of a chore now that I am use to it, and have everything there.

If scoop is right about the bore, and he always is, then you're better off with a larger one.

I have a 22" Temsah Mini-wheat which smokes wonderfully. There is a slight restriction to the draw, but hardly something I'd ding the overall worth of the hookah for. I don't notice any issues with the heat, but I've also been smoking in the cold New England fall weather. The stem is sturdy and solid and although I will say the welds are crap it still looks wonderful despite the one hideous weld on the lower part of the stem. It might not smoke like a full sized KM/Temsah but its well worth the convenience of the size and it isn't much of a concession to make because I like the slightly restricted draw. I picked it up for $35 shipped and its been a good investment.

I'm just being honest and telling you what i know.

Relative to a bigger km, the minis are not as good. Even George from TheHookah said the small ones were not made the same as the big ones.

They never had the stems for sale online yet. They've been working on it for a while now but making the pages have been as far as they've gotten.

If he wants a smaller one let him be, maybe itll be better for flavor because the bore isnt as big
