Also a hose tip can not affect the flavor. I can understand the displeasure associated with metal against your teeth.
I talked to a few of my friends today and it seems like i am the only one who uses mouth tips around here besides the hookah lounge. Maybe i will only use mouth pieces when i have a lot of people.. and just go sans plastic tip when its just me or a few others.
