Default How Big Is Yours?

Ok, so there is probably no "right" answer for what is the perfect sized hookah -- doesn't mean this shouldn't start an interesting conversation though.

Personally I think an 18" may be a little small while a 35" may be a little large. So that kinda leaves me in the middle of the road. I have a 22", 26" (not yet out of the box), and a 32" which I am smoking out of now. Don't know if I'll wind up getting a 29" model at any point in the future (who knows...).

I'm hoping my 26" smokes as well as the 32" because they are both MZs, have similar construction (stem diameter, I imagine), and are solidly built.
The plus side would be that the 26" is easier to handle, clean, and transport.

So, any general ideas from the public? Is the perfect hookah right at about 26" or what?

Questions and comments should be interesting for this one...

Rick

I'll voice my opinion on this!

I tend to like something around 28" for a hookah ...

BUT the most important part to me, is the area between the top of the water/level and the top of the base. I like to see more cubic inches there, instead of overall height ... Hope that makes sense? We will call this the "Sweet Smoke Spot"

I find that if this area, the Sweet Smoke Spot, is large in volume, and you can cool this area with the water, ice and glass then it will provide a great smoke ... but that is just my personal opinion ...

I have a 6 (yes SIX) inch, an 8(yes eight) inch , a 16 inch, a 22 inch now doesnt not have a vase (broken), a 26 rotator, a 28" Egyptian and am whating my collosus from Hookah-shisha.
I find that as long as there is enough cool water to cool the smoke and the diameter gives an easy draw, it smokes well. All sessions from the 22" start as good as the 28" and higher hookahs but the water (3 times smaller base) gets hot quickly and the smoke becomes harsh in the middle of the session.

Cheers.

first off: nice thread name, it's very provacative LOL.

Now on topic, my MZ is marked at 28" but with the bowl on it it's a little more than 29" (i didn't know if it's supposed to be measured with/without the bowl?)

And by what Sambooka said, my hookah is pretty much perfect lol. it's 28" and i hardly have to fill it with water, probably like 2 inches of water in the bell vase so there is a LARGE chamber for smoke

I have an 18", 22" and 26"...Out of the three the 22" smokes the best because the 26 inch is a shitty rotator that I can never set up properly. But when I move out this summer I plan on getting a nice 28"-36" beast.

I have a 32, I like how large mine is, but I can see why some people would want a smaller one. My 32 smokes really nice too. I will probably get a 29" inch next I am not one for the baby hookahs :P

Smaller ones are nice for cleaning in your sink. If you smoke outside size wont matter due to using the hose maybe. I personally smoke both inside and outside and I still use my 3 footer everytime. My 28 is still a cloud machine though!

my tub gets so gross. theres ash, brown liquid, and green liquid in there. luckily it all washes off relatively easily lol. always fun to see people's reactions when they notice like "what in the hell have you been baking up in here? " then i tell them its from the hookah and they get all confused

40" Mya Collossus, 30 inch Mod Ice Torrent, and a 19" Ivory Tower. I like the collossus best... Go figure. For me anything that I've smoked out of smaller than 18" was too hot..

30" Syrian that smokes perfectly. 36" KM(32 plus 4 with funnel) that smokes just as well. So think I will stick to 30-36 on any future purchases.
