Used a large funnel (doesnt really seem very big) and 2 30mm golden QL's on opposite sides of eachother
This is strange. Starbuzz provides TONS of flavor. It' should be very pronounced. Specially with that white peach, that's one of their best flavors IMO. Question, do you or any of the other 4 friends smoke (cigarettes)? There might be a chance that all of your taste buds are "burned out". It happens to some people that smoke a lot. Other than that, the only other thing I'd check, is how you're packing the bowl. Make sure you stir up the shisha before packing the bowl. You want to get all of the juices from the bottom to mix with all the shisha. A lot of times people don't do this and end up smoking from the dried out shisha that's on top, and therefore not getting much flavor.
i dont know if they smoke cigs, i never have. we did stir it before packing the bowl. ill try splitting the coals in half like sambooka said and see if that helps
hmmm... that's strange. I don't think splitting the already small 30mm golden coals will help. I have a small Tangier's phunnel bowl, and for each of my sessions, I use two 30 mm golden coals with no problems and perfect results. As a matter of fact, you should problaby use three 30mm golden coals to start of the session. You said you had a large, and that bowl is truly gigantic so... What's your method of packing the bowl? What's your hole placement like? Gives us a little more details on your preparation of the hookah. This way, we can figure out if it's something wrong you are doing, or something else entirely...
