Smoking a simple pack of Nakhla Mint. I'm waiting for my new bowl to arrive. I decided to go with the Samsaris Vitria 2. My original Samsaris(received it shortly after they were released) is destroyed! When they warned not to use more than two coals they really meant it.

My Vitria 2 finally arrived, I'm pretty excited to use this thing. I'm going to be smoking a AF melon and mint combo

So I wanted to smoke a bowl before going out to see an old friend and I ended up with an interesting mix to the say the least. I didn't have enough kashmir peach to pack it in my mini symphony bowl so I mixed with trifecta vanilla 40 k peach, 60 vanilla in a harmony bowl. I figured peaches n cream with a dash of kashmir wouldn't be too bad....it turned out not to be too bad after all. Not the best mix but not bad either. The shit I do not to waste tobacco lol

It's fantastic. A light pack of AF was able to last for two rounds of coals. It's nice being about to see the shisha from the side of the bowl. It's like a shisha fuel gauge. My only complaint so far is it add a bit of restriction to the airflow. a6fafcfef2e463e459b471bd1d678bd0.jpg

Lmao, gotta teach him well! And as for the AF all glass hookah it does and it doesn't cook the shisha all the way through. It gets about half way through but because the glass coal screen you lift it up by the peg, set it in the coal tray, and "stir it up". And it cooks all the shisha.
Heat management was tricky to understand with it but once you get it, this hookah is the best and easiest to clean, plus the high lip on the coal tray up top allows for easily walking around with your hookah.

The coals are pretty hard to knock off of it, it doesn't take up much table space, it's not hard to see over, clean up is a breeze. It's probably my favorite piece I own

Maybe that's what I have to do with my heavy hitter glass bowl; stir the shisha half way so it Cook's all the way through.

Tried Vanilla Gum Mint With Lemons squeezed in base. It works good but not that much tasty. I would like some suggestions so I mix something to improve.

Try using orange soda in the base instead of water, or red wine.

Smoking AF lemon mint with Heaven Leaf Lime.  Not a bad combination.  


How's that heaven leaf lime by itself?

I've been known to do the same thing because I hate wasting tobacco too.

So far, yes it is. It uses a small amount of shisha, though you can easily over pack or dense pack. Shisha burns evenly and fairly thoroughly ( a bit of waste but less than other bowls). I'm curious about how well the silicone will survive. The original Samaris was not very durable, but I hope that the silicone not being directly heated like with the original will change that.

Rose water in the base? Nice touch. I've used a bottle of red wine in the base with either rose or pan rasna and it tasted great.

I had thought so but I wasn't sure. The second handle does seem like a nice addition though.

How much do those kind of knockoffs run? I already have a Lotus but I'd totally get a knockoff if it's a decent price just to try it

Dirt cheap. Look up aliexpress or alibaba. Both are Chinese knock off sites dedicated to cutting corners haha. Personally I wouldn't because who knows what minerals come out in high heat. Plus kaloud is releasing a new product on the 2nd could be an updated lotus.

I'd say get an oduman ignis if you're looking for something new. Runs about 30 on eBay and can fit 3 cubes plus has numbs on the bottom designed to keep air going to your charcoal

Interesting, I use those sites so often and have never seen them, but I've also never looked. That's a good point, who knows what's in them completely. I had no clue they were going to release anything. I'll have to keep an eye out.

That Starbuzz head is easily one of my favorites, it disperses heat nice and evenly, I think the spire contact point helps that too but it's the perfect amount of shisha and after my 3rd grape bowl I can already taste the flavor intensifying.

Smoking in the bath is the bomb, i do it maybe once a month and just soak so I can give myself a pedicure of sorts... as a professional rollerblader I have fucked up toes lol

And yes it's a knockoff louts, I payed like $7 shipped from china but I like that it has the second handle although when it's heated properly, the silicone only gives you about one second of hold time but that's enough to set the HMD in the coal tray and stir the shisha or whatever you may need to do.

I'm glad you like that bowl. If I had an unglazed bowl I would mostly smoke mint from it, so that any flavor can get that minty undertone. 

I was looking at them on Aliexpress last night after Dude mentioned it. They have a knockoff Lotus and Samsaris Vitria combo for $16 . I want to get it so that I can compare the original to the knockoff

Hey thr ... actually there wont be any noticeable difference b/w original & knockoff ... i bought original Kaloud last year and lost that, then got one from aliexpress and thats been working like a charm ...


Sent from my  DrSatwinder's iPhone using Hookah.org mobile app

There might be difference in Silicon quality of the knockoff bowls though ...
But in my personal opinion, No bowl's better than Harmony ...

Haha, yeah I wasn't expecting the Lotus knockoff to be vastly different. I was more curious about the quality of the piece, how its machined, if the quality of the metal is decent, etc. 

I'm assuming the silicone isn't going to be the greatest but who knows. I've never actually used a Harmony and the only name brand bowl I own is the Samsaris. Perhaps my bowl collection will need to grow to accommodate the Harmony

For the price it comes at, thdt knockoff kaloud is pretty decently built ...
And yeah samsaris is good too, but used it few times then again ... been resting on my hookah bar's shelf ...
egyptian and harmony are the only ones i prefer ...


Sent from my  DrSatwinder's iPhone using Hookah.org mobile app

I feel problem with the samsaris is it holds a lot less shisha tobacco ... so the sessions hardly go beyond an hour ...
But with egyptian and kaloud, i go through two hours straight ...

The original Samsaris wasn't that great overall. At first is was fantastic and it always smoked wonderfully but the silicone just wasn't durable. The new one is better, but only time will tell about the durability. My sessions go for about 1-2.5 hours with it. Although I tend to do denser packs or even topping it off mid session, I will swap anything completely burnt and put new shisha in.
