Hayter! Glad it got there in one piece, my friend! I swear, I sent you the cleanest one of all twelve!
This is how I smoke with that type narghile (and you're right it takes a little practice):
When it starts to get a little harsh, I just remove the bowl, shake it a little, and then gently
blow back through the hose. Keyword- gently! You'll see the smoke exit, not as much as you're used to, but it will take the harshness away.
By the way, if you ever need a job cleaning narghiles, call me!!! Holy crap, I didn't know those babies would clean up that nicely!!
