one time i had a friend pack the bowl while i set up my hookah, assuming he had packed a bowl before. i was wrong, and he had packed it super tight. so when we put the coal on and i was trying to pull nothing was happening and i thought something was wrong with my hookah until i decided to check his sheesha job. and sure enough it was packed so tight i couldnt pull anything through whatsoever.
-moral of the story, pack loose and "fluffy" bowls like others said.
