the clouds are caused by how well the Sisha burns....and how good your coals are, I get the same ammount of clouds out of my cheepo chinese and my two hose custom.
and my chinese is 13 inch, and my custom is 19

I'm assuming you're referring to the nour brass 2s and the nour karakol- personally I also find the 2s more aesthetically pleasing, and quite honestly, size doesn't matter in comparasin to setting it up well.

yeah it depends on how well the shisha burns, try using more heat, every hookah model has its own optimal heat temperature. like my MYA QT only needs 1 coal because its so small, on the other hand my MYA Staff needs 2 or 3 coals. it also depends on the bowl size.

There wont be a differene from a 24" to a 28", nothing noticeable at least.

If it was like a 6" vs the 24" then yeah, but since its in the 20's the coals wont heat the water.

Get the style you like regardless of the height.

I think the best size is between 20" and 30". If you go below 20", you will face minor problems with harshness and low smoke. and if you go beyond 30", you will find difficulties in cleaning and moving your hookah.

if its more than 30, you just brush it from both sides, but yeah, it aint a portable hookah.

I have bought 12 hookahs over time,and I like to look at a large hookah with more aestetic possibilities,but for so long I only smoke one juniour size and one mini. both have better draw. (I bought here in Israel, probably they are all Chinese mongrels and I can't begin to open my mouth about the hookahs you might find in America.) But for good smoke and draw It depends on how well its's sealed.

i find a larger hookah keeps it a little less harsh and a large base makes the pull less bubbly (like feeling it through the hose). there is a little difference from like 18 to a 32 but 4 inches i dont think will be that noticeable unless the base shape is much different
