Default Re: new to hookah

If you're using the standard Mya bowl, its a bit tricky to get smoking right. Its small as far as diameter but deep so this creates some problems with heating the tobacco. When I used one of these bowls, the top of the bowl will get cooked quicker than the bottom where a juicier tobacco will hold the flavor so you'll get less flavor and smoke. If you are smoking wetter tobaccos(AF, SB...etc) you might want to invest in a funnel or vortex. These bowls hold the juices better and will smoke your wetter tobaccos better. If you smoke dryer tobacco(Nakhla is the most common) then a standard Egyptian would do fine because these tobaccos don't run like the wetter tobaccos. Either way I'd recommend replacing the standard Mya bowl if thats what you received with your hookah.
Best of luck
