Lol Cameron, you said the same thing twice.

Harrell, it sounds like you know what you are doing, so I highly doubt it's a setup problem. Do you think that an ember might have sank into your hose at one point in time, maybe resulting in a bad taste in the hose? Have you given your Nammor a solid examination? What about cleaning it out? How used is your vortex? Is there a lot of build-up in it? Some things to think about :-/

Take your hookah apart make sure no shsia is caught some where also you may need to soak the bowl or vase what so you use to clean it?

Lol smoke no do it one day there's a difference lol to much it in one spot will just suck heat in. Shisha overly burnt is a whole diffrent situation, I should have worded it better though

yeah just took it apart didnt see anything but gave it a very good scrub, the hose smell alot better wondering if it was just the hose, everything else was fine.

Ya you should regularly try to clean your hoses after every session

A nice trick for mod bowls is making a "snake". Take a piece of crinkled foil, roll it up in a stick shape and roll between your hands to tighten it. Then twist it into a coil shape and place it on top of your shisha before you put the foil over your bowl. This creates a gap between your coals and shisha and prevents any scorching or burning of your shisha.
