I'm interested in buying a new hookah but i want to know if most of you prefer a smaller hookah to a larger hookah or what?

Is there advantages to a larger hookah over a smaller one?

Good question, I was wondering the same myself. The only advantage I could think of a small one is being easy to transport and perhaps they are a bit stronger as the smoke takes less time to get through the water etc? If thats possible otherwise I sound like an idiot.

bigger vs. smaller the debate goes on. i think most people here would say that the most important think about arguilehs would be a) tobacco in the head (brand/quality and how you load/pack the head) and cool.gif diameter of the stem and ports. those two factors would be the most important with smokability, the rest in convenience and practicality w and don't forget, asthetics

I have a MYA bambino and obelisk. They both smoke the same, but the bambino is great for travelling or bringing to parties, and the obelisk is great because it can have up to four hoses when we have friends over. The best advantage of a small one is the price wink.gif

My thoughts exactly. I own a QT and a tri metal KM. Both smoke like champs.

It all boils down the skill of the person packing the bowl. In the end, size is just an issue of making an impression.

Taller hookahs Give off progressively less CO as their height increases.

I've also heard this somewhere.

I have a couple full sized KMs and a MYA Bambino and I'd say they actually smoke the same... At home I usually smoke from a KM but for takeout or a quick solo session the Bambino is my go-to hookah. It's also a lot easier to clean (I'm lazy tongue.gif)

The only bad thing about small hookahs is that the ash trays are usually small. My KM ashtray saved a lot of hardwood flooring when the finger coals would roll off the bowl x) Also with smaller hookahs if you use a heavy hose they are easier to tip over.

In terms of money, I'd say MYA smaller hookahs are the best bang for the buck.

huh.gif ...That was disturbing.

About the only real advantage I can think of for large hookah over a small would be the larger tray.

If you have a Mya QT, you can use the larger Mya trays on it instead of the small one. Helps a lot. H-S sells replacement trays.
