Default Vortex bowl on a smaller hookah

my friend recently got himself a small vortex bowl for his 17" nomad hookah after seeing how much i use my vortex on my 32" km. now my vortex works perfectly fine but when it comes to his we dont get nearly enough smoke or flavor when compared to his mod bowl. do vortexs work better on larger hookahs or is it the setup he is using? the only thing i can think of that is affecting it is the extremely short stem the nomad has (the thing is seriously 5" long in total). any suggestions on fixing this problem?

size should make no difference, something else is wrong...is the grommet on the vortex a tight seal?

one more thing i just thought of.... sometimes the holes on the vortex are not completely drilled threw...you can poke at them with a toothpick usually to open them up a little better

KM's have a wider down stem, so they draw very easy. How wide is the down stem on his Nomad? It might be the pipe and not the Vortex that is causing the hard pull.
