Default Question about bigger hookahs

tried searching and couldn't find exactly what i was looking for but...
I'm getting a KM soon and i have smoked out of chinese hookahs only, 12" being the biggest one.
the km i ordered is 34".


so far I've used Mod bowls with 2 coals (chinese easy-lites) on the sides of the bowl and packed the tobacco a little under the rim.

I was wondering if i should do anything different with the bigger hookah (standard egyptian bowl) such as pack a little more or less or use 1 more piece of coal (******* hookah naturals) or anything different.

don't want my first session with the km to be subpar

one dont use japanese CL because they add a nasty taste to your shisha unless it is CH QL your using then you are safe , two dont pack the bowl any differently than you have been except if you feel like you need to add another peice of charlcoal but if it gets to harsh take it off and use a wind cover if you have one. Three i was never used a MOD bowl i either use an egyption clay bowl medium size for dry tobacco and a vortex/phunnel for wet tobacco. Although you can use a clay bowl for both i just like using the vortex/phunnel because the juices from wet tobacco dont drip down to the stem. Four once you use a KM you will realize what smooking hookah is all about lol enjoy your new hookah and let us know how it works out for you

Well you are using bowls that generally don't always produce amazing smoke unless you get very good with them. You may as well be very good with them if you are using Mod bowls and having enjoyable sessions with Chinese hookahs!

Based on what you have described, you already know what to do. A taller hookah doesn't mean you need to change your bowl method- BUT, a KM bore is very wide, the pull will be different than your Chinese rigs and the tobacco will burn a little faster because you will be pulling more air through at a quicker speed.

So try out the way you have been doing it do far, chances are the difference will not be that great, and you will have a great session!

One thing I can recommend is a Vortex or Phunnel, Phunnel is my favorite!

I've used the chinese "easy-lites" that you talk about and they don't affect taste for me AS LONG AS you blow off that silver crap before hand lol. But ya, if you're doing well with the chinese hookahs, you should be fine. i have a 32"km and i use the standard clay bowl with it and use the "easy-lites" with it regularly and have fantastic sessions, so you'll be good to go
