Default Hookah Base Size

I know the size of a hookah as far as how tall it is doesnt make much difference, but does the size of the base affect the hookah experience or does it just hold more water and smoke? Would the same stem with two different size bases have different results?

Just holds more liquid if its bigger... holds less if smaller... the stem depends on what you have... On my Mya's I can interchage stems on most of them and they all smoke the same. It really depends on the hookah.

I think it does not make a big difference. At least that is my experience.

The only thing you have to consider is if you have a small vase (and a short stem) and you have to put a lot of water in the vase to smoke, watch out that no water will come in the hose (this is the case when you use a good hose which transports to much air for the hookah)....that gives a nasty taste.

If you have a diffuser more surface area means cooler smoke. If you don't i can't say that it would make much difference because the bubbles don't spread much.

I think the stem will make more of a difference than the base size. The amount of smoke is going to be determined by the gauge on the stem of the hookah. If the stem is really small, the draw will be constricted and you will not get a lot of smoke.

Lot's of smoke that passes through very little water gives very hot smoke.

I don't think a big base or a small base make any difference cause they still would produce the same amount of bubbles..

i always felt that the longer the stem, meaning less water, makes for more smoke left in the vase between hits. well once that smoke sits a few second it starts loses flavor. but if your looking for big clouds then i guess thats good for your needs. so i like shorter stems, and higher water levels. most KM's ive seen (mine included) seem to be that way.

also a lot of water means a more stable hookah
