Default Difference in the Stem

So i really like the Mya Gelato but the thing is, it comes in 3 sizes of stem... 12, 16 and 18 inch if i am not mistake. To me, it doesn't seem like there is much difference is smoke ability .. but is there? I mean, i don't want to get the smaller one just because it is cheaper and find out that the larger ones smoke better.

Here is an image of the 2 hose 18 inch

I doubt 6 inches will make a huge difference esp on a Mya...

ive smoked from the 12 inch and it hits like a champ. smoke isnt too warm, and is capable of getting large smoke.

you might notice a slight difference in hit. i personally don't unless i'm trying to detect it. a bit like, noticing the difference in the air you breathe where you live, and the air you breathe when you go to the wilderness.. (creative imagination there)

but...
you'll love the small one for ease of cleaning (which you'll do a lot of and appreciate). i've had a range of hookahs (8"-36") and have downsized to a single, Mya Bambino. no regrets.

i believe, the small gelato is all you'll need.. especially since it's multi-hose convertible.

good luck w/ the decision. you can't really go wrong.

my friend has a 18 inch just like that one you showed except silver/blue instead of gold/blue. it is awesome and really breaks down very small int eh carry box. idk what the differences really are between the 3 sizes but i would assume the base is smaller on the 12 inch which seems to not give as nice of a draw from my experiences.

if it was my buck i would pay for the 18 inch

I have the gelato and it's an awesome hookah, hits like a champ and I can tell you that there's no difference between this one and a 18", they both hit amazing

you know i find it funny how many people like the gelatos now cause i remember once they hit the internet vendors people hated them (it was about 1-2 months after my friend got his) and while i didnt hate the look i sure wasnt a big fan of it. it has grown on me and i guess it has grown on the community. i will say it is one of the most stable designs i have seen. period.

The main thing i wanted in my new hookah was the gold stem.. and i want either a black or blue vase. That is just the look i had in mind. Also i have heard a lot of people like the Mya hookahs, my friend has one and he uses it more than the Egyptian one he has ( i currently have an Egyptian one myself). Thanks for the help everyone though, i think i will probably go with the smaller unless its too much of a hassle to go directly through the Mya Saray website (they have the best selection of them but i think they have a little bit more spendy shipping)
