Default How large is to large

I was talking to my brother about hookah size and he said there is a point where a hookah is to big.That got me wondering how big is to big for a hookah?

If you need a ladder to move your coals.

Well if you go to the Sahara Smoke website and click on thier discounted items tab, it will prompt you to a page that contains a 5ft hookah. In my opinion if they had made that hookah smoke-able, chances are it still wouldn't be big enough

I was in Pismo,ca awhile back and he had a 6 ft hookah there. In my opinion it looked like a straight antique and far from practical. Still nice to look at though.

That hookah actually was usable at one time, the reason why they are so cheap on Sahara now is because they're damaged in ways that they can't be smoked out of, so rather than throwing a $390 hookah in the trash and lose 100%, sell it as decor and make back at least $150. I'd post a video review of it I found on youtube here, but the video is made from another hookah forum and I don't want to disrespect the mods here. But, what I could gather from the review was that it's a nice looking hookah, but it's a total pain in the ass to set up (you can't see the water level at all and the only way to empty the water is to pick up the hookah and tip it), it's very difficult to clean, and the end product, the smoke, was not nearly good enough, in my opinion, to justify going through all the hassles of setting it up. To me, unless you want it as decor for like a hookah lounge, I'd suggest taking your $400 and putting it toward a good hookah that's less than half the price, some shisha, and the rest in the bank.

All depends on what you like. I love smoking from my 36" AF as well as my 13" econo QT. Just depends on my mood. If I'm going outside, the short hookah is convenient. Sitting in my livingroom I prefer the larger one. Smoke happy.

I've seen one taller than me, that is too big. I should be able to sit on the floor and deal with the hookah.

Yea, way too big. Definitely would be a nice show piece for a lounge of if you were going to dedicate an entire room to hookah, otherwise just way too much hassle for the same pay off you can get from a 27" - 36" with much less hassle and less than a 1/3 the price of that 7 footer. Wouldn't mind being given it for free though.

Use the same principle for chhosing a new dog.

Keep the asshole (coals) below eye level. You gotta worry about shit (coals) in one direction, dont wonna have to worry about flying turds (coals) as well.

thanks George Carlin, who taught us all so much.

40-75 cm is medium

Some will tell you that too large doesn't exist, but I think it all depends on what you can accommodate. Too large means that it has trouble standing up without tipping over to one side. In which case you might consider going for a more modest size. While big ones can be impressive at first sight, they can be impractical or embarrassing when it comes to using them. Small or average sizes might be humble but they can be even more fun if used properly. It's all about technique.
