  1. Yeah, Nima sent out a newsletter about it. Probably where you read it. I'll still be here until the place closes for good, and I'll try posting more often
  2. The forum is still functioning however traffic has slowed and the owner is looking to sell.
  3. They're resealable so they stay fresh and moist for a while. I have had a better experience with the kilo than 250g to be honest. If you can get them at a reasonable price they are worth it. You can end up saving a few bucks over 4 250g packs Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app
  4. My local store sells kilos of AF Mint for $40. I usually get a new kilo before I am even close to running out. It's a good way to stockpile and at a decent price. For Nakhla they only have kilos of Double Apple, I love DA but not enough to get a kilo of it.
  5. I'm the same way with mint. it never gets old. Also, I'm packing a bowl of mint.
  6. Modding is fun. But way too easy to run into problems. My Fallout 4 has 150+ mods! It crashes every once in a while though. On another note, I just bought Elder Scrolls Online. It is actually pretty fun
  7. Sorry, my German is a little rusty but I think you are asking if you can use charcoal for a grill in your hookah. I would not recommend this at all. Tut mir leid, mein Deutsch ist ein wenig rostig, aber ich denke, du fragst, ob du Holzkohle für einen Grill in deiner Wasserpfeife benutzen kannst. Ich würde das gar nicht empfehlen.
  8. I don't actively use them, but I have used them in the past. I even made my own for a while. I do have to say they are very cheap and the longevity is astounding. Although in my experiences they changed the flavor of the smoke. Not as badly as a quicklite but it was still there. I'd gladly recommend them however. Just be careful of them popping or splitting Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app
  9. I prefer to use flats compared to cubes, but I would follow the general rule of 2-3 cubes in a Lotus depending on the heat output. Good to know I have some influence I don't blame you for moving on though. I like to get a new brand every once in a while. I would be remiss if I didn't. There could be a gem of a coal and I would never know it. I've also used the Ecocha. They were very good. Although for me they were too pricey.
  10. While I despise quicklights, there is a huge market for them and almost every single beginner is going to be using these. It would be harmful to the integrity of this thread to just ignore them. That being said, I would say the best brand for quicklights is Three Kings. I have been using Starlight Natural coals for years now. They have been the most consistent for me, with just a few batches every year cracking or blacking out. Starlights have a uniform shape to each coal and produce a lot of heat. Three coals in the Lotus is pushing it. I wouldn't ever try 4 coals, foil or Lotus, as that much heat would torch the shisha. Oh, and their price can't be beat (at least locally) $3.99-$4.99 for a 72 count box. Quick lights always, ALWAYS, affect the flavor of shisha. If there is a brand that doesn't I have yet to experience them.
  11. Good idea! There's so many tips and tricks for us to share Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app
  12. While I personally have never smoked Tangiers, I have heard that you should go for a semi-dense to dense pack.
  13. They're right, it could be leaks or your coals. It could even be the shisha. Next time you clean your hookah give it a good look over for any possible leaks, make sure to set it up and test it without any shisha or bowl. Simply set it up normally but without the bowl and place your finger over the hole. Then take a puff. Ideally you shouldn't be able to suck much, if at all. If you are getting any kind of air you have a leak. Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app
  14. Great choice! What did you go for? The metal or the glass handle?
  15. You have a few options at that price. Plenty of washables hoses under $30, like Nammor, Khalil Mamoon, Mya, Fancy, Starbuzz, Tonic. Though if I'm going to be honest with you,I'd go for a Dream Hose. They go for $30-45 before shipping, but are worth the money. I bought mine (D-Hose Hybrid 2.0) two years ago, so far I have had no problems with flavors ghosting, it is easy to wash and dry, there is no rusting, very flexible and looks damn near new. On Hookah-Shisha.com the Dream hose in glass and metal handle variants are $29.99 before shipping, but you can get a discount, thanks to this site, for 15% off with the code: hookahorg
