  1. Smoking Right Now Thread

    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. Smoking Right Now Thread

    The forum is still functioning however traffic has slowed and the owner is looking to sell.
  3. Smoking Right Now Thread

    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.
  6. What are you playing!

    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. Shishakohle

    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. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    Good idea! There's so many tips and tricks for us to share Sent from my Pixel using Hookah.org mobile app
  12. Tangiers Noir

    While I personally have never smoked Tangiers, I have heard that you should go for a semi-dense to dense pack.
  13. Problem with smoking

    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. New hose?

    Great choice! What did you go for? The metal or the glass handle?
  15. New hose?

    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
  16. What are you playing!

    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.

  17. Smoking Right Now Thread

    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.
  18. Eating/Cooking/Drinking Right Now Thread!

    That sounds delicious! I hope you made enough to share
  19. Smoking Right Now Thread

    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.
  20. What are you playing!

    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.
  21. Eating/Cooking/Drinking Right Now Thread!

    Yes, shame on you. Shaaaaaame. It's too delicious to pass up
  22. Smoking Right Now Thread

    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!
  23. Smoking Right Now Thread

    Sounds very familiar, haha. Smoking a bowl of 80% Mint, 20% Blueberry. I really need to clean up my little "hookah station"
  24. Eating/Cooking/Drinking Right Now Thread!

    We made Irish Stew, with 2 bottles of Guinness in it. It's our tradition
  25. Smoking Right Now Thread

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