Re: Getting good smoke out of a crappy Chinese hookah?
I am new to hookahs, but I have found that herbal shisha has given me the best flavor and smoke... not too expensive either.
Other than that I would say a larger diameter hose, and check all the seals... and ice, as previously mentioned.
I got my first hookah Sunday (though I have smoked with friends before). I got a middle-of-the-road hookah. A 22.5" (with upgraded bowl) MYA Double Bubble Acrylic. It came with a larger diameter hose and I upgraded the bowl to a Vortex. I have found I like the herbals better (double apple/mint and mixed fruit are both good IMO). Try those and see if that gives you a better smoke.
