Re: how to not be a hookah newbie any more
[quote=Fezzik;115105]This is ridiculous. Everyone knows that you are hookah newbie right up until you get a phunnel quote]
I strongly disagree. I believe you are a noob when you use a phunnel. The phunnel is just a waste of shisha (small holds 4 times what my regular bowl holds) and it just makes the heat managment a bit easier to the epxense of smoke thickness.
The (may i say) "professional" way is a small egyptian bowl, bulk coal, and a hose with good draw. the way it has been done for the last century in the middle east and believe me it works better than anything on honeyed or glycerin moassel. Or a jurak bowl if you like the raw tobacco taste (for jurak and blackstyle moassel)
