    Yeah I love how it looks, I want to get a new one so I don't have to keep using this one and have it break apart on me, since its not available anymore lol, I love it too, I don't like using Tangier's with it though I can, I'm still working out the kinks but I don't like wasting my tobacco. I go with Tangier's small or alien in case I make a mistake. I'm really starting to love tangiers but man you gotta be consistent lol

    My 80ft is showing its age and I didn't take great care of it, it has some stress cracks in the walls, mine is a bit older so idk if its leveled flat and would hold the provost too well but I've been meaning to get a new 80ft and keep this around since its the discontinued color pattern of cappuccino over cream

    Only $9? Did you only get the tray and not the cover or was it on sale or something? I've thought about getting the provost myself it seemed really interesting since i saw the HJ video of sarkas using it at his lounge, I like how you do it with the alien matt where you cut the foil and use it as just a leveler to hold it up on the alien, you can just put it flat by itself on the 80ft right? Maybe I'll get it for that since I don't bother trying to fit the lotus on that bowl

    Yeah it was definitely more robust, it smoothened out over time so it was a good session in my book but the subtle flavors were kind of overshadowed, you're probably right, when I started I was using way too much tobacco and recently gone with a lot less and its helped a lot, I guess all that matters is you get enough in the bowl and not worry, I used that approach with nakhla DA in the 80ft and don't run into issues with it anymore. Next time I used the small or 80ft I'll go with double foil again and fumari poker, I really like the small but its hard getting used to the pack for it for me since I don't use it much. Thanks for the input, like I said it was still a good smoke but I'll go easier on it next time, I've done it kinda like this with the alien and that worked well for me even with the lotus

    Well, isn't that why they say to poke holes straight through the tobacco? I did that with a toothpick all over the bowl instead of the oyster fork since mine isn't shaped very well but isn't that what gives it the airflow? I remember Eric saying in his interview that the reason you use so much is just because the tobacco has a lot less density to it, but I cant tell how dense they go based on the videos other than the foil test so I tried to do the exact pack, is there a more efficient way? Maybe something just a tad bit tighter than a haze pack and keep it under the rim?

    I can't say that I'd know, I never heard it mentioned before, but just to make sure we are on the same page when I smoke Tangier's with foil it usually crusts and pushes upwards against the foil making it look kinda rocky, I have no idea if its supposed to be this way but it went through the two rounds well and the bottom got cooked well, when I took it out the tobacco all around looked like it was on its way out there wasn't any uncooked, it may of lasted an extra round but I wanted to smoke something else, which is AF grapefruit mint that I'm smoking now and its great as always

    Well the top layer crusted over, must've used too much tobacco again cuz its pushing upward, but almost done with second round of coal and its gotten progressively better so its been a decent session, flavors good and not harsh just a little hot, I wonder how the guys in the middle east do it since I saw Eric post on his forum saying those guys order his tobacco a lot and never complain about issues packing, he speculates they work Tangier's the same way they do their more traditional stuff so apparently they have no problems and love his tobacco

    Took a bit of a risk trying Tangier's in the 80ft, I don't like doing it because if I screw up I use too much tobacco, you can reuse it if you messed up right? So far its not terrible but its not great either, tried the Eric way again but I messed up somewhere with it lol, not harsh but the flavor isn't coming through very good

    You like it? I tried one 50g pack and haven't finished it, I thought it tasted like medicine lol

    Lol I hate those tablets, nakhla orange seemed okay but this is just too good, its a really fresh batch so its nice and strong. I haven't had straight lemon by AF but over time I found the lemon mint to be kinda sickening, I used to like citrus mint too but I'm good with this, blueberry mint is solid too. And I got grapefruit mint this time around. The only good lemon mint flavors I've had IMO were probably mimon and mighty freeze

    I've had some decent ones but nothing I'm too interested in getting again, haven't had anything as good or better when it comes to orange, wish I could say the same for their lemon mint though

    I forget how good AF orange mint is sometimes, I love this stuff, easily one of my favorite flavors if not my favorite

    I actually work manual labor myself, and its overnight but I kinda like it, its at a store so its closed and I don't have to deal with customers more than an hour, so I just do my work in peace or shoot the shit with the guys I work with, they can be pretty funny

    Guava is my best example since I've bought it a good few times, I've used two different Egyptian clay bowls as well as every other bowl I own. its kind of hard to explain what's wrong with it, it just seems to get bitter really easily with however I handle it

    Its just those couple of flavors or so everything else is fine, and I've used all the bowls I own lol

    Off the top of my head I'd have to add coconut, coconut is a strong flavor but like guava, for me anyway, I'll either be giving it too much heat or not enough, other than that maybe grape? Grape was a lot more manageable. I've tried berry almost a year ago so it's hard to say my thoughts on it besides it being a little too sweet for me. My personal favorites is mint and the mint mixes by AF so far, pretty standard I know lol. Oh yeah, and I've had heat issues with double apple as well but I have heat issues with every double apple so I won't count it lmao

    Yeah every time I get AF guava it burns easily for me, the flavor comes tasting kinda like plastic too, its strange, I've gotten it to smoke well but its a pain lol

    For me personally I've always had trouble with AF guava, its a decent flavor but I feel like its really finicky with heat so it's hard for me to deal with. Also I just opened one pack of nakhla double apple and apparently HJ sent me the new version, the box for double apple is exactly the same but the pack inside has that rough feel like when you get a new controller, but otherwise the bag is kinda the same, but inside there's no plastic wrap holding the tobacco, its just as a brick in there. That stuff doesn't really matter much but what's interesting is the cut is completely different, its extremely fine, like the difference between a sample pack of AF vs the 250g. This stuff looks like othmani, I've only had this cut by nakhla once and it was a sample pack but after those the sample packs were back to being choppy, it doesn't seem as juicy even though its gotta be really fresh, either way it was a lot easier to pack. Flavor seems to be relatively the same but I think the cut is a really big improvement

    I had a friend over and we smoked some Tangier's mimon and starbuzz black mint, right now I'm smoking some Tangier's peach iced tea in the Tangier's small with foil and titanium's, going pretty solid I really like this flavor, taste like a less sweet Lipton peach iced tea

    I think you got me mixed up with the other guy xD. I haven't recommended any hoses just a couple bowls lol Oh man I tried my last Tangier's flavor this prince of grey, and its really nice mildly and naturally sweet like how I remember Earl grey, the tea notes are really present too, I haven't had good quality earl grey so I can't say much but I really like this flavor

    I picked up some Lebanese bombshell myself so I'll get around to trying it soon, as for me I'm smoking some k peach for the first time its really nice I like it a lot. I had some peach iced tea and mimon they're both great too, so glad I got more tangiers

    Dude said they're better off in the lotus and not great in foil, but I just threw them in the trash, the inference was so bad I stopped my session

    I'm trying my sample of charcoal flair cubes I got from 5star on my last order with the last of my AF guava in the 80ft with foil, I really don't like this coal at all, too much heat for me and too much flavor interference
