The only difference is about 6 inches. Stem length doesn't affect how a hookah smokes. It's purely aesthetic.

Shouldn't be a huge difference in performance. The larger may give the smoke more time to cool, but probably not a big difference. The smaller will be a little easier to clean.

A 29" would be easier to clean. I have a 29" MZ Perpetual River and the cleaning brushes are not long enough to go all the way through the stem. You either have to scrub from one side then the other, or make a cleaning tool like I did. I bought a 1/4" dowel stick and cut it to the proper length and run wetted and dry paper towel pieces down the shaft. Like cleaning a gun.

Yeah exactly as said about, there will not be a big difference as far as smoke density, but the smaller will be easier to clean. Dunkel that is a very smart solution you have there my friend. I am actually having the same problem with my Syrian that is 26". The cleaning brushes are not long enough to go through, so I have to clean one end and then flip it and clean the other. Your solution sounds pretty good. Maybe I'll try this out!

Thats odd. My syrians stem comes apart in 3 pieces, not including the other 2 that hold the ashtray in place. So i've never had that problem. I was under the assumption that most if not all syrian stems were able to be dismantled into pieces.

I also have to do the flippy flip. My stem alone is 33" and one piece. My brush barely does half of it.

I'm thinking of upgrading to a shotgun cleaning rod. I already have one sitting around that I use to clean my trombone. I just need to get a brush end for it.

So what if I'm getting a 10-15" mini hookah? I'm looking at getting my first one (I've smoked several times though) and I don't wanna shoot the wad on my first one. Do the mini hookahs perform poorly?

If you go as small as 10 inches you could get problems if it has a tiny downstem or base, like water in the hose. yuck. But 15" you should be fine with. Many can argue all they want, but a hookah is simple physics, it's just a pipe. The length of the stem has little to nothing to do with the quality of smoke you'll get. I enjoy my mini 14" rather than any other large one i've smoked out of (:
