    AF Mint, KM 1001 Nights Ice, Samsaris, Lotus, starlight naturals. Awesome smoke session, got a new place and a new room to smoke in.

    My air purge valve

    For a temporary fix you can cover the hole with a ball of aluminum foil. Roll up a ball of foil larger than the hole and press it firmly into the hole. For good measure cover it with a piece of electrical tape. I would not recommend using glues of any sort, you don't want to inhale anything nasty.

    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

    The forum is still functioning however traffic has slowed and the owner is looking to sell.

    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

    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.

    Hookah Coals & Heat Management

    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

    Hookah Coals & Heat Management

    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.

    Hookah Coals & Heat Management

    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.

    Thank you. You sure have me beat on the hookah collection. I sold a few of mine over the years to friends getting into the hobby. I miss them but glad to see them go to a good home. I was talking to the missus about that hose after seeing you post about it. It may just be the next thing to be added to my collection. I'm smoking a bowl of AF mint, but I'm sure you guys are tired of me posting the same thing.

    I wouldn't say melon is a light flavor. I've found it to be quite a rich flavor, enough to only need a small amount to alter the flavor of a mix. It is great nonetheless, and is in my rotation of flavors. This past week was blueberry though, watermelon will likely be next.

    Damn that is a lot to clean up! Better hop to it Love the collection of hookahs, by the way. That is just the top part, I have drawers underneath full of supplies. I meant that I have bits of shisha on the station that need to be wiped off. This is drawer #1. I also have a small station on my hookah table that I made (remember that thing?) Right now the stuff isn't on the table because I just repainted it. It has a nice chalkboard tabletop, so you can doddle and smoke!

    Sounds very familiar, haha. Smoking a bowl of 80% Mint, 20% Blueberry. I really need to clean up my little "hookah station"

    I think it's close but I still get a hint of that artificial banana flavor. Similar to that of the candy Runts Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app

    Latest Shisha Order Thread

    It was partially you, partially the store getting a new shipment that day. Saw the banana and made my mind up right there. This banana is actually pretty good. It's not accurate to a real banana but it has that distinct banana flavor you would expect from something claiming to be Their kiwi is great. Personally it is not something I would smoke by itself, it is definitely a mixing flavor in my opinion. Kiwi and banana is a great mix. Haven't gotten around to kiwi with mint. Their guava is another great flavor. Something I wasn't expecting to be so good but was happily surprised to be proven wrong

    Favorite flavors

    I do cold water, bit of lemon juice and a vigorous shake for day to day cleaning. Maybe once a week or every other week it gets a deep clean, the same thing but with hot water, more lemon juice and maybe a brush if it needs it. The stem doesn't need to be brushed often, it's always the base that does.

    You're better than me. I won't wash it completely after every session if I know I'm going to be smoking the same thing for a while.

    Nothing special, just my typical pack of mint. I'm sure I've posted it at least 50 times in this thread

    I've got hose

    Just keep trying DD, it's in there somewhere! Yeah there aren't that many on the market, not that I can think of. I can think of three right off the top of my head, and that includes the one you used. Used to own one of them actually, wasn't a big fan considering my hookah already has an ice tray built in. Good to see I'm not the only one who will cannibalize objects for random purposes
