Re: Getting good smoke out of a crappy Chinese hookah?
I have a MZ and had more problems with it then a aluminum chinese I have also. Name brands are just that, name brands. Don't get me wrong, there are haggard chinese hookah that suck just as much. Hookah pipes are hit and miss, all about inspecting the final product before buying. For my chinese pipe, water is anywhere from 1"-1.5" above the stem, medium funnel bowl, long wind cover, two naturals. Smokes like a champ, and full of flavor. Also, make sure to use quality shisha.
