Default Sahara Smoke bases?

Sorry if there is another topic regarding this, tried a search and couldn't find what i was looking for.

I'm thinking about picking up a KM double pear 41" and would buy a new base immediately.

What Sahara Smoke bases will fit or does it all depend on the size of the grommet?

Most, if not all large bases have an opening of 1.75", some might be slightly larger, what it boils down to is just getting the right grommet, or using some electrical tape under the grommet. I prefer the silicone ones.

I purchased the Odyssey large base for my KM double pear. It's a tight fit, but works beautifully. I definitely recommend it.

The opening on my dish vase isn't large enough for the flared end of any of my KM stems. Maybe they've increased the the opening on the vases.

The medium bases would be too big. Also the chamber on the QT is different than chambers of other hookahs.

Thanks again for the replies, I've had my eyes on one of those bases for a while but i don't want to buy it and have it end up not fitting.

It will work, I just did this for 2 of my hookahs. Pick up the large base you want and a large silicone grommet from them. It it's too tight you may need to trim the ridges of the grommet and sand off the rest, I had to do this for one of mine. Actually pick up a couple grommets in case you mess up. It will work though, you'll just need to play with it a bit to get the right fit.

Where did you get your double pear? The only place i could find the 41" black one was at TheHookah.com and i've heard mixed reviews with them. Is it an older model?

Disregard that, I looked at John's selection again and I think I'll pick up the 1001 nights double decker.

I got it from John about a year and a half ago. It's roughly 34" without a bowl.
