Default Replacing bases

So I bought a KM recently, and I want to replace the base. It's a KM ice signature and I'll have to order everything online so I can't try anything out before I buy it. What bases have you used for replacements on your KMs in the past? I'm curious to see how well my pipe will smoke with one of those 10.5" Boho bases.

I know it fits the stem but it's a little bit shorter than a traditional KM base. There are only a couple inches clearance from the stem to the bottom. How does that affect the smoke? Has anyone done it?

those genie vases are about as tall as the boho vase i want... looks aside, how does it smoke with that vase compared to a regular km bell vase? then downstem must be pretty close to touching the bottom.

Mouth of the base has to be 2 inches. That's it really.

The water level does affect the smoke, especially if it's that thin. You will get thinner maybe harsher smoke the less water you have. Get a base that is around the same height.
