Default The more diameter the less taste?

Hey folks

Someone told me that he noticed that whenever he smokes a hookah with smaller diameters (hose, stem) he gets more taste than the other way round. So do you think that the diameters and as a consequence the amount of drag while taking a hit do have an impact on the actual intensity of flavor?

Is it the entire hose or as I have been led, the exit point of the hose. I think a wide hose with a small opening where you draw would be ideal, but I am not sure

The only point at which having a tightened pull is beneficial is where the smoke hits your tongue. Actually, it would probably work best to have a really wide gauge stem and hose with a tight little bit on the mouthpiece. Venturi effect.

That has been realized with this hose: http://www.world-of-shisha.com/epage...uche/AGER_Hose

It can be easily restricted with one of those plastic tips. They suck. In my experience more smoke equals more flavor. Giant hookahs and wide gauge hoses rule.

Even if the taste is more intense with a smaller gauge it just sucks if the draw is hard und you have to pull like a vacuum cleaner... I don't think it alters the taste at all, when you have a wider gauge...

That's what I was saying. You want a big, wide stem and a big, wide hose. The only place there should be restriction is right at the hose apature. This shouldn't restrict the draw much at all, while at the same time forcing a concentration of the steam for a more intense flavor.

Would this be like a rocket, you have a widish tank and at then end there is a nozzle do direct it for more speed/balance (balance being for the rocket)? Watch October Sky if you haven't seen it, I like the movie, saw it about 15 times throughout middle and high school
