Default Jumbo Schmumbo

Why the jumbo vase? Ok, it's nicely shaped but the thing is freakin huge, and worst of all, the neck doesn't even come close to lining up with any of the KM's I've seen on it yet. I like the neck of my vase and the heart of my hookah to be flush or close as possible, to me the 1/4 to 1/2 inch that the jumbo vase flares out around the heart just makes the hookah look unfinished and cobbled together, which is a horrible prospect for one of the most expensive vases!

So why do you jumbo owners/enthusiasts like it so much?

Note: The above is based purely on my own taste and sense of hookah aesthetic, I'm not trying to poo on anyone's style or hookah, just sayin'.

that's disappointing to hear. I was interested in these for a while but this cuts that in half. I've cracked a few vases so the idea of a thicker more well made vase was interesting. If that's not as true as advertised... that sucks.

I haven't "stress tested" a jumbo vase so far, but from what I've noticed the bottom is crazy thick but sides are pretty standard.

the stem will fit in there, my problem is that the outer diameter or the neck is waay bigger than the diameter of all the KMs i've ever seen it on. It might be close to the diameter of the AF solid (hmmm)

yeah the jumbos look nice but yeah if it doesnt look uniform with the stem then that would be a turn off aesthetically for me
