Default Easier pull, how?

I was yesterday at a cafe and smoked a hookah there, the pull was so easy (I exerted no effort in pulling LOADS of smoke, compared to my hookah at home). Any advices? I have a 32" hookah.

A wider gauge downstem or hookah hose could be the cause. Also bowls like a funnel, superchief or Vortex where the shisha tobacco isn't directly over the holes pulls easier.

The cafe used the same bowl as mine, and same hose (plastic disposable hose) which is wide enough. I think it might be the covered holes in the bowl, or that my bowls have fewer holes to avoid tobacco falling down the stem. Thanks

It's always deeper than an inch. Thanks

maybe they just pack the tobacco realy realy light so the pulls easier, and next time you pack your bowl get a toothpick and pick through the tobacco and look for the holes, so they is like a direct path from the foil straight to the hole

i put more holes than most people say is "right" and have no issues with it burning wrong and it is pretty easy to pull.

good way to isolate is to suck through the bowl after you pack it (or even as you pack it like after you put the shisha in then after you foil and poke holes)

Of all my hookahs, the one that pulls the worst is the Pharaoh from Hookah-Shisha. It's a great hookah, but the hole at the base of the hose port is way too small. I may end up drilling it out. Even with a homemade hose at 5/8" diameter, and the ball bearing removed, it just doesn't pull very well.

My pharaoh (mine is mz, am not sure if its the same as HS sells) has perfect pull and the hole in the heart seems big enough (like 8mm is suppose). The most important thing to get a nice effortless pull is the hose. But the washable one is pretty good at that. check if something is blocking any of the pipes in the narguileh and as the others said make sure its not coming from your bowl.

Cheers
