    AF Mint, KM 1001 Nights Ice, Samsaris, Lotus, starlight naturals.

    Awesome smoke session,  got a new place and a new room to smoke in. 


  2. 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

  4. Damn lucky, those kilo packs stay fresh? I buy my stuff in 250 packs only to avoid anything from drying out after being open

    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

    I am too, but I always run out since I don't buy it in bulk like DA, I might next order though, I really love nakhla mint

    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.

    So on that note I got the lemon exchanged not too long ago and started getting into modding oblivion, when I messed it up again, since I was using my friend's steam version of the game I just uninstalled everything and ordered the elder scrolls anthology, gonna be fun

    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. " userid="10692"]Hey all ... How you all doing...
    Another thought, recently been experimenting and using natural wood lump coals ... And i am impressed with the result ...
    Anybody else using natural lump coals?

    Sent from DrSatwinder's Redmi Note 4



    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

    Another thought guys ... How many natural coal cubes do you prefer starting with in kaloud ...??
    Share your thoughts, then i'll tell my experience, coz i seem to be experimening with kaloud and have quite nice findings ...

    Sent from DrSatwinderemoji769.png's Redmi Note 4

    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.

    Yes, actually because of @chernobylI was using Starlights for the best part of a year because they carry them in stock at my local smoke shops. Not bad, but I've moved on to other coals simply because I think I have a coal fetish. I have to try everything out there just to say I had them. I'm a big fan of Pharaoh's coals because of their consistency and heat. I"ve also tried the Hookah Boyz Coals which are pretty good as well. I like those because they don't give me a headache at all.

     Lately I've been ordering my coals from amazon on prime for only $10 per 120ct box. They are called coco hookah and are supplied by a local NJ company which is nice; have to support my local market. LOL They are cheap and work well. I wish they were hotter because in my ignis I have to use 4 of them to get the desired output. I haven't used my lotus since I got my ignis a few months back so I'm not sure how they will work with it... Maybe I should test that tonight. 

    Anyway, I've also tried Ecocha which are very decent. I've also tried haze coals which are my favorite as far as heat. Two cubes in the Ignis and is perfect, however they give me a horrendous headache, so I haven't used them again. 

    As for quicklights, I've actually come across two brands that are really good as far as taste, smell and longevity. The Pharaohs quicklights and a brand named Carbon; they both have a hole in the middle of the disk and have a weight consistency similar to natural coals. I keep those around for when I run out of natural coals which happens more than I would like.

    I think that's all about my experience with coals. Hope that helped. 

    Good to know I have some influence :P 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.

    We shouldn't even discuss quicklights lol. They're bad period. As far as natural coals go...one month the worst brand becomes the best brand and the best brand becomes the worst. I.e: titanium's and Cocourth were fantastic. Currently titanium is experiencing some blacking out issues and Cocourth just relaunched it's product after a massive fail a while back. I just switch brands every few months because there will never be a coal that is consistent 100% of the time unless someone discovers a way to manipulate rainfall and crop yields lol.

    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. 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.

  12. 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

    You're lucky, half of the features they touted were either not completed or simply not even in the game. Don't even get me started on the "story" you would play through tens to hundreds of hours getting through the universe to reach the center. Only to be started off back at the beginning with your ship broken and being told to do it over again. And they have the nerve to charge $60 for it, as if it's a completed game.

    Oh that's cool. I like the drawers.
    Thanks for the compliments. I don't think you can really see them all really well and some were being cleaned. In total I know own 13 hookahs. Eventually I'll clean that table and display them all nice and neatly.

    Tonight I'm smoking some fantasia F1 which is a nice blueberry and I'm using my social smoke Izmir and my new pharaoh's swivel hose.
    I love this hose, solid and with a nice draw.

    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. :P

    Sunday we went to visit my sister in Maryland and we stopped st this awesome Mexican restaurant we always go to. I brought home 2lbs of pork cracklings and with half of them I made a Dominican dish called mofongo. It consist of mashed plantains mixed with a butter and garlic sauce and chopped up pork cracklings. Totally delish and that was yesterday's dinner.

    Trying out AF melon for the first time - it seems to be a pretty light flavor, but not bad.  I like melon-flavored anything.  :)

    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.

    Impatiently waiting for Mass Effect: Andromeda to launch.  I've pre-ordered, and I have the day off tomorrow, so guess what I'll be doing all day?  Even if it's not nearly as good as the other games in the trilogy, I'm probably still going to play the crap out of it.

    I can't wait for the new Mass Effect. I am going to keep an open mind about it though. It's not supposed to be like exactly like the trilogy, just in the same universe. Although, I have to wait until this Friday, I forgot to pre-order.

    I also tend not to watch any material about new games so that I can make my own decision on the end product and not on what they decide to show in trailers. Especially after what we saw happen to No Man's Sky. Hyped to oblivion and it turned out to be severely lacking.

    Damn that is a lot to clean up! Better hop to it :P 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!
