Default How are mini and average sized hookahs different?

Me and my friend just purchased our first hookah. It's a pretty cheap al ahmir 13 inch or so hookah with one washable hose. I was wondering if the smoke from this is gonna be a lot worse compared to an average sized hookah which I have had a few times before. Thanks for your input.

i just don't like very short hookahs due to them usually having very thin stems. I would go medium to large, but most importantly the stem diameter needs to be as large as possible. Many of the smaller hookahs have very small diameter stems, but you can always get a mya bambino, chic, razo, qt, etc that are short that still have a good pull on them because they have big stem diameters for short hookahs, hope i made sense.

The only small hookah i like is the QT. Or anything small from mya. Any other small hookah is probably a piece a crap.

I bought a "widow hookah", also called "pumpkin" style hookah a year ago. I like it. The vase is naturally small, but I fill it with shaved ice, and it smokes as well or better as an average size hookah. Being small it is very fast to clean, and easy to take care of.

I bought a "micro hookah" some time ago. Definetly not as good as the widow. The vase has a small diameter, and it kept falling over, and spilling the coals. I use the little one, only for traveling.

I have a little 12" no name hookah I first bought a couple years ago when I was a junior in high school that i still own but don't use anymore but I love it still. It takes the biggest hits for being so small. Me and my friends used to love smoking out of it back in the day. Now I would still prefer a bigger hookah but for first time users a small one shouldn't be a problem due to beginners just starting smoking and latter you can dish out the money for a better quality piece.

I would say roughly around the same size and it works just as it's intended too. Maybe I just got lucky? I don't know.
