Default Buying a KM hookah Confused!!

I hear a lot of good things about KM and this being my first hookah i dont want to regret or make any mistakes. I was lurking on thehookah.com and basically decided on the http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...ar-hookah.html (Khalil Mamoon Triple Pear Blue 42") i think 42'' might be to tall and i havent seen reviews on any other KM other than the amora. The http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...okah-blue.html is also a nice hookah.... so my question is split into two. Are All km's the same in Draw Etc......? and larger = more cleaning? Thx

Just be ready for it's height. I have a 38" and it is sometimes a pain to clean. Sometimes I wish I went for a 30" instead. Don't get me wrong, I still love my KM.

Draw really shouldn't be much different from a smaller stem to a larger stem. If anything, I'd guess that a shorter stem would give a little easier draw since there is less tubing to suck the smoke through.

IMHO, cleaning is the easy part, no matter how large the hookah is. Just purchase a cleaning kit and you're good to go.

My next pipe will be the KM chiller over at www.*************.com with the addition of a razan hose. I have had 2 pipes and neither were brand name, so I'm looking forward to owning a KM.

I don't think size is really going to make a difference as far as performance. It's really just which you prefer.

cleaning a huge pipe is lame. if you want to give it a deep clean, even regular brushes dont get everything off.

i make a baking soda lemon juice paste and scrub the instead of the stem, and with the km, the brushes they come with totally suck. sometimes takes me forever to get the stem super spotless and shiny inside

im not a fan of anything bigger than 32"

Use a wire hanger to clean tall pipes.

Larger = more cleaning yes, and the draw will be different based on height, especially height that is so extreme. The gauge is the same size on most KM hookahs, so the pull won't vary much at all in those terms. I would get something between 27" and 35", just to make carrying it and cleaning ti easier. Really tall ones may look cool, but are an all-around hassle.

Think about where you plan on placing the 42" KM too. I have a 39" KM and it is a pain in the ass to realign my coals if I'm smoking on my kitchen table. I'm 6'0" and I can't see above the bowl. I don't like to put my hookah on the ground since I get a bit clumsy sometimes. Also think about the size if you consider moving it around. I usually move my hookah by holding the vase, so occasionally I'll forget about the height and brush the top with my ceiling. It's all your own preference. I'm a klutz, but I still like a big hookah.

i have that same exact hookah... it is a pretty good hookah you can check out my smoke clouds here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gOKbyEAYcA

if i could buy a diffrent km i would have though go for an ice chamber or something the 42 inch isnt very stable at least mine also they never have that vase in stock

again i dont dislike it but its just 2 unstable go for a smaller one with an ice chamber for the same amount mabye a 10-20 buck diffrence and u get awesomely sick smoke from the coolness
