    Mazaya Blueberry mint mixed with some Grape and berry KM pharonie. Hj Ferris bowl and lotus. Titanium flats. Awesome smoke session out in the back yard. It's 1030 at night and wife and baby are gone to bed Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    New HJ Bowls

    Aside from the cost I am impressed with the Ferris bowl. The lotus fits on nicely and heat distribution is good. Cloud and flavour output is more consistent even when the coals gets small. The bowl retains heat well Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    New HJ Bowls

    So I ended up ordering the HJ Ferris bowl. It should arrive by Thursday so I can make use of it.
  4. My local supplier managed to bring in a batch of these brands. They are a lot more pricey than my usual shisha so I would like to know which flavours are worth trying. For comparison I usually pay R25 per 50g for Ameren and R35 per 50g for So Fakher. Alchemist and Fumari are retailing at R100 0er 50g. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    New HJ Bowls

    A bit off topic. But which HJ bowls work with a Lotus. We have limited access to the USA stuff. My main local supplier just got in a batch of HJ bowls. I've been using a Samsaris and Lotus combo for some time so wanted to try a new bowl. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. We tried it as well. Good cloud output for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then gone. Tried putting more juice but got a horrid mouth feel. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Latest Shisha Order Thread

    In South Africa we are very limited with good hookah supplies. Nevertheless i did put in a black friday order. Discount wasn't big. Equivalent to a box of Titanium coal 102pcs. Both a friend and I ordered a carton of Mazaya mixed selection, Carton of Ameren mixed selection and 2 boxes of HJ titanium flats each. We don't really get much bigger than 50g packs here. Occasionally I might find some 250g tubs of AF special edition flavours. But not much else Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    What are you driving?

    That's HP I'm guessing? Or Kw Some more pics of my Golf With the previous set of wheels. Those were OEM 2 piece BBS wheels. All taped up for our clubs annual "Dubrun" in 2016 Ride height for shows. Car is still driveable and not right down. Just a cool pic Me and wifeys cars. She has a VW Polo Vivo, also running coilovers and OEM BBS wheels And parked at the last show i attended some time back. I love shows, Cars all day as well as a hookah or 2 always lit. @Honni your Evo seems pretty well sorted. Excellent choice in turbo. Over here the Garret GT30 is also a popular choice on the Golfs. 300KW at the wheels is easily achievable with a mild boost file. I've currently got the stock IHI KO3 turbo but my look to upgrade to a Borg Warner K04 turbo in the future.

    Great thread. I'm a car guy and VW fanatic. My current ride. A 2012 MK6 VW Golf GTI with manual transmission (because auto is for grannies) I don't have too many pics on this phone . Will upload more from my other phone. A few mods at the moment. Some hardware and engine software. Car makes 200kw at the wheels on a mild tune. Lowered with coilovers about 50% down. I go lower for shows but for daily this is how I drive due to some bad roads. I'm also in love with the old Vw split window bus. But they are so rare and expensive I have to settle for models and pictures. Golf MKIV R32 on the table This is my recently done dining area

    Smoking a weird mix. I don't usually smoke in the week but I'm broken after just starting crossfit and need to just lay about. All AF. Blueberry mint. Mint. DA. The DA is most prominent but it is quite nice. Trying to empty all the little bits in my box

    11pm and enjoying my usual late Friday night bowl. Smoking Ameren Super Litchi. It's a very accurate flavour and tastes just like the fruit
