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

    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.

    I'm the same way with mint. it never gets old. Also, I'm packing a bowl of mint.

    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"

    Can't wait to see what you think of the others. I haven't had Fantasia in a long while

    Been one of those weeks where you get too busy to come online. I've been smoking mint and blueberry all week though.

    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

    I've got hose

    To be fair, most somewhat experienced hookah smokers will know how to make it. It is just a hose with bits on the end. They just wouldn't know where to begin or what supplies to get

    I've got hose

    It doesn't look bad, I like the color scheme. Although not a fan of the tip. Looks a little too phallic for my tastes. Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app

    Love the mango, might just get some myself. The peach can be a bit strong by itself but delicious Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app

    I've got hose

    Might be tough on here, we love to get off topic Although a good idea is to use a T adapter instead of straight pipe to connect to the hookah. That way you can add an extra hose without losing your purge valve or having to fiddle with other adapters. It would need a way to be blocked off when not in use though

    It very well could have. Probably added enough of a flavor that you're familiar with that you didn't notice the shisha as much Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app
