I have a 19" and it smokes great. I think large ones are nice (27 inches and up)because they have a longer stem witch holds more smoke, and helps cool the smoke before it gets to the water.

As I've figured out with my hookah is that the base is small so its tough to get the amount of ice I want to fit in. With a large hookah you'll have more room to breath and play around with your sessions.

All in all its your call. keep into consideration that larger hookahs are a lot tougher to handle and travel with.

I own a 19' 26' and 30' and i find that actually the 26' smokes the best....on hookah shisha they have the sultan which is 7 foot and it sounds great however i heard really tall ones smoke like junk. I think the size of the base also has an impact on how well a hookah smokes...

I have a 10" Pumpkin, 12" Nou Nou, and a 22" egyptian

Taller ones usually smoke better cuz there is more of a cool down of the smoke and there is a little more flavor.

I'm planning on getting a 30" or more hookah just to try out :P and to have hookahs of various sizes to smoke from.

So far, the Nou Nou smokes pretty good for is size but my 22" smokes the best out of my hookahs.

Ehhh I hate my pumpkin. That crap was as waste of $20 and I dunno whether to sell it or keep it.

IMO about a 26" is perfect. 32 is great too.

Yeah I was thinking about it...Like selling it for $10-15. But none of my friends really like small hookahs like that lol cuz most of 'em had tried small hookahs before and hated it.

I don't think I would ever want something under a 19". My next hookah will be a KM for sure.

I 've smoked hookahs from just over 8" to 36" inch ones. I have to say the difference wont be really noticable above 26" and especially over 28". if i was to buy a 1st proper hookah i' d buy a good quality 28" one. Easy to transport and clean, smokes perfect, is stable and can be placed both on table and on the floor.
