Default Hookah Stems

Is there any difference b/w stems that appear purely metalic, and stems that have parts that are colored,

For Example

Stem with Colored Component:


Stem without Colored Component (ignore ice chamber)



Outside the fact that one stem has an ice chamber, is there any difference in those stems. Does the colored component only exist for decoration?

~Thanks!!

The only differences i have noticed with my multiple hookahs is on the stems its decoration, size and width. Nothing else to it.

i assume there is no difference, just look down the insdie of the stem on both of those and they are the same. Maybe just a diff in length.

john's right. what goes on on the outside of the downstem is irrelevant.there is a continueous, one piece tube which travels from the top, where you put your bowl,straight down to the water.

I am going to have to say that they are both right. It is exactly how Abu explained it. If it wasn't I would have a very funny looking stem on the inside.

Length doesn't matter after 12-14 inches. Mine is 32 inches so I don't know how the smaller ones perform, but from what I have heard the smoke has less time to cool with some of your smaller hookah poetentially causing some harsh smoke. Who knows though? I don't.

Length matters a little bit. My 18 inch hookah smokes harsher than my 26. But after a certain point, I'm pretty sure that a taller hookah is only good for esthetics.

Nah the outside is just for decoration and there isn't a difference, smoke wise.
