Question What hookah brand/type is best for Starbuzz?

Right, I have a mya hookah which didnt work to well for me, a mate of mine gave me a KM stem and told me to try it and it worked very well for ALL Al Fakher flavours

I tired out Starbuzz flavours (queen of sex & pirates cave) seems to taste burnt or I cant taste the actual flavour at all..

also I was told to buy a new head so i'm using a vortex one on the above set up.

So I would like to know from everyone who smoke Starbuzz flavour on the regular who do not have this issue as above to tell me

What brand hookah and size do you have? and where did you all buy it from?

It is probably less to do with the rig - as with the heat management. If your KM works well, you probably have to play with your heat management to deal with the "burnt" taste. Or try a different bowl. But try using less coals, or hanging on them on the edge of the bowl, to lesson the burnt effect on the shisha.

The vortex bowl should work fine. For all of your wetter tobaccos like SB use a vortex. Try searching YouTube for Vortex Spacer method. It should help.

Personally, I use the toilet bowl for any SB.

Also what kind of coals are you using by chance? QLs burn a lot hotter then natural coals so that may also be an issue.

Regards to your message before about using a spacer that is actually how I pack my flavour.

I use a chinese phunnel bowl for starbuzz (and for everything else apart from Nakhla) which works very well. I have 3 KMs and all of them smoke approximately the same so it is mainly to do with your packing technique and heat management. I pack starbuzz fluffy in the phunnel and then pat it down slightly to make sure its not touching the foil. Then I use 1 sheet of heavy duty foil with quite a lot of holes, 3 cocoblaze coals or 4 coconaras works best for me with the medium phunnel.
