    If you never wash it sure but stainless steel doesn't retain flavor. Most cases of seasoned pipes are wooden like Iranian or indian hookahs. You can have a hookah dedicated to a flavor but for it to be seasoned is a whole different term. Unglazed bowls are deemed as seasoned as the clay absorbs the flavors. Ah so kinda like an iron cast skillet which also has to be seasoned or a wok. Wow that's... Interesting. I would imagine it wasn't a washable hose because you can get rid of the ghosting from those hoses. Oops, I meant the inside of the walls of an unglazed bowl not a hose, sorry if I gave out the wrong idea lol

    Yeah I'd rather go with an unglazed bowl, idk if the hose matters much I think you can ghost any hose. I've seen a video where this guy took the tobacco juice and rubbed it against the inside walls to season it up faster

    I like everything except that bowl, I hate those hollow ceramic Chinese bowls

    Mighty freeze was pretty good, a lot more natural than I've tried from starbuzz, its a top pick for a lemon flavor in my opinion

    LOL Well so far I've been good with my fumo jar so I think I can handle the glass aspect of it. I don't know why but lately I've had a hard-on for glass accessories. Its definitely another good option, if the sale for the Tangier's small is still going you can try to snag one, its kind of like my alien but a little bit less wide and quite a bit deeper, seems to hold a decent amount more but still around the same, and its very sturdy with thick good clay

    The website says it holds 20-26 grams. I'm also looking at the godfather glass bowl http://5starhookah.com/Godfather-Glass-Phunnel-Bowl-MSGFGB.htm but I think I want the shika more. I heard really really good things about the god father but I'm just too clumsily for glassware so I stay away lol

    OK so those are out then. I love my fumo glass hookah but the bowl is very small which is good when I want just an hour session. So I'm thinking for my next funnel I'm going to order either the shika sandstorm or the oblivion. I've like those two for a very long time and now I have a reason to get them. [emoji4] Shika bowls pull one solid round and leave you some wiggle room as well, like I've gone heavy with alchemist blend double apple and managed to pull two rounds of coal from it easily, but generally its good for one round stretched out at the end with a wind cover without going bad on you, the sandstorm is on my list too for double apple, I've heard it holds around 17 grams of tobacco? On foil I find you can either pull two rounds by using three coals each or go one round with 4 coals, a lot of flexibility in between just because its so freaking wide and shallow.

    I really like Mya hookahs, and each one that i have had has been very nice. I would always get a KM over them, but they hold up well and work great. I hope you enjoy your hookah and it works for what you need it for. My friend's bambino is great, it was a great way for us to get introduced to hookah and like I said he smokes out of it regularly, and the design of it really caught his attention, personally I got into Egyptian hookahs because I'm in love with the traditional styles of pipes so its almost exclusively preference on looks, thats why I steer clear of electroplated egpyptians and such, I would love to get my hands on one of those gorgeous authentic Syrian or Turkish pipes one of these days

    Sorry to hear that, the minzari sounds like a really good concept but in practice that's rough, well I cracked open haze hey man earlier with a friend and finally tried it, great flavor, this whole last shipment of new flavors has been great and I have some new favorites, smoking some more now in the fletcher alien overpack with lotus out of the shika, there's a leak in the hose port but I haven't noticed it really effect anything, great clouds right now and flavor

    Has mya lied or cheated? I can't say I've seen that happen, but I have to agree with matt I feel iffy on pharos products but I do lack experience with them or seeing much, I've mentioned before my friend owns a mya bambino and its actually really good and holds up against my hookahs, my only issues is the purge valve, bowl and hose it comes with, the bowl would be fine but they're harder to work with and break extremely easily, the hose is okay as long as you go into it knowing its unwashable, I didn't, that's why I had to throw my first km hose away, granted I had my own issues with that as well starting out so I steer clear of unwashable, when people I know want to get into hookah the mya bambino is actually my first recommendation as long as they get a nu hose and Egyptian clay bowl, that's what my friend rolls with now and it works just fine

    I always see orange crush at like Walgreen's along with RC, its been awhile but I see it at other places and restaurants randomly too, its pretty cheap too like $1 for a two liter plus tax, my dad got me into it when I was a kid since it was his favorite soda, also I'm getting some better sessions than unusually do with the lotus, double apple with it and Egyptian clay bowl, I like it cuz it has less room for user error

    So I think pistachio breeze won me over for social smoke, the flavor took awhile to come through since the hose was ghosted, gonna need to super clean it. But I mean.. This flavor is pretty damn good, so far this whole shipment has been good, the lotus is good, this flavor is good, limoncello is also really good, majestic bru awesome too. But this flavor is just really nice, subtle but its there and its relaxing, honestly its almost kilo worthy, I'm gonna have to send Alex an email thanking for this recommendation. But I mean honestly I'm finding myself nodding in approval with this flavor without doing it on purpose, and these are just my first impressions, with a lotus at that which I'm still getting used to, crazy good flavor

    Can't wait to see you use it and see what you think of it. I second that. Got my order from Smoking-hookah.com today and I'm pretty excited. 250g of Mazaya orange which I'm smoking right now and it's very tasty 100g Haze Still smoking 100g Haze Sweet Melon Medley 100g Haze Light It Up A black/blue starbuzz maximus hose and a pocket hooka that I can't wait to play with LOL I've never used that site, how is it? I noticed they carried brands you can't find on other sites and its a trusted vendor on the forum, but after my experiences I'm afraid to order more obscure brands and flavors

    Hulu and hookah is always nice, that used to be my go to for awhile until I burnt myself out lol I'm a little jealous, I wanted one of the older AF hookahs but I got into the hobby too late, and learned of those later, at least the shika I got is a good substitute lol, well, until I found that leak in the hose port.. But whatever it still works

    Its kind of a good thing you guys have conflicting opinions on hookah especially since you're content creators, variety is always good lol

    So I tried some haze with the lotus in the shika bowl, two titanium cubes and a flat, went with the usual semi dense pack under the rim like with most tobacco and it lasted an hour and forty five minutes (I timed it by clock and including heat up time), the tobacco came out looking like a hockey puck which I'm not used to ever really seeing, its a good product though I'm liking it and helps me when I wanna be lazy, by accident I tested to see if it really makes your coal last longer on my first go, the forth coal I had which was the biggest I left out for a good while and it became the smallest one, but I've noticed that I can't maximize the coals potential when they die down like I can with foil and a wind cover, so I think that'll just cancel it out and make your sessions last the same time, still a great product though and I plan to use it more than foil now

    I've been wanting to get my hands on some nakhla orange one of these days, I had the orange peach mix and thought it was great

    Yeah, its creamy, its funny since I have the perfect example, we just got these juju valentines day candy and its like strawberry cream, it tastes just like the candy cream flavor in those, and then you get that floral note with it, its actually really nice and I think it was a smart way to mellow out a floral flavor, I'm liking it. If you push the heat then the floral note comes out more and it can be almost bitter

    How is that flavor so far? I'm gonna have to mess with haze more it was kinda off for me cuz I messed up a bit, but from what I could tell it was creamy and lightly floral tasting, I didn't get much of the fruit I was smelling, I'm gonna have another go with it out of the Tangier's bowl and foil, also idk what it is, but packing that bowl with Tangier's was a lot easier to do

    That's fine, I keep a fee different grommets on hand just in case, plus paper towels always work in a pinch too

    Trying out some majestic bru with the alien and lotus, I don't like haze out of the alien and probably gonna use another bowl next time but its a good flavor, I won't know differences in smoke feel with the lotus until I try a familiar flavor but it is convenient, bouncing between 2-4 coals since I packed it too dense and it was getting hot but I mean there's really not much to it, good device
