Default Does size matter?

my question for all is can someone explain to me what the reson for having a MYA QT size verses a MYA 23'', for that matter. Any brand i just would like to know why hookahs vary in size, and if it matters at all.

thanks

One reason I like having a Mya QT is portability. I can easily take it anywhere with me when I go out of town. It smokes great and is very easy to clean.

I was worried that a smaller hookah would not give the smoke a chance to cool but this is not true. I have recently purchased a Leila - portable hookah and she is lovely, not too harsh, just great.

There is a slight difference in heat but the water generally makes that moot. If the pipe is too tall then you need greater girth to get a good draw due to resistance and aerodynamics and all that physics stuff. Smaller ones are lighter and easier to carry and clean. larger ones have generally more solid construction and more room to pool smoke. There seems to be a better selection of nice looking replacement bases for medium and small hookahs. That is about it best I can tell.

Truthfully, there is no difference between small and large hookahs as long as you set them up right. The smaller ones are made to be more portable than the larger ones. It would be pretty hard to move around with a 30 inch hookah compared to like a 13 inch one. Thats the basic difference between sizes. Hope this helps

And you know, that's a funny thing Fezzik. In theory the most stable hookahs are the smaller ones, yet you'll be hard-pressed to find a good selection of large replacement bases anywhere.

I bought a Mya QT just for the portability. I have a 32 inch and it is a pain to take to a friends house. The QT is just easy to move around from place to place. It smokes great, same as my larger hookahs. When I am the only one smoking it is perfect for me.

My Mya Diva smokes ten times better than my Mya Orb and my Mya Orb is a lot taller. Mya QT's are so sick, I always loved the design of them but I have never smoked out of one.

And taller hookah's do not hit better. My 16 inch Mya Diva gets the same smoke my 36 inch KM does does.

When shopping for a hookah you need to look at quality and appearance, size is just a preference.

Yh you can,

And i dont think size matters much, i got 5 different hookahs, 4 big ones and the small bambino, and i prefer to use the bambino in everyday use, its so much more practical

To prove size doesn't have much of a effect check out the clouds from my safari melon dew video from the bambino, or even the bambino review itself

So True.

and about the cloud sizes, it varies with people depending on how much you can inhale, i having smaller clouds compared to most cos i got asthma and dont over inhale it, but if you get out farbeyondriven vid's on his bambino, you will see they produce a hell of a lot of clouds

If you're the only one smoking i'd suggest a qt over a taller hookah just for the amount of coals you'll be saving alone. You can add ice to the bottom, but if you use trays you may have to fill the trays only half full, as the base opening isn't very wide. It's not too much of a bother. We still use ice in every smoke.
