Default Double foil

So I got a little lazy a couple weeks back and instead of tearing my foil to the right size, I folded it over (thusly... Yeah, I said it... thusly doubling the foil). Had a very good session with no heat issues. Tried a few more times and same thing. No heat issues. Good, easy sessions overall. So double HD foil. Anybody else try this? Not sure if a fluke or maybe just getting better with my hookah/shisha prep and management. Comments welcome.

I have just recently, like the last 5-6 sessions, started using two layers of foil on the bowl and have really seen some good results. I don't plan on going back to only one layer of foil.

I have used 2 but it all depends on the tobbaco. What happened to me was I was smoking Starbuzz with 3 cocos and 1 foil but my friend packed the bowl too high and it was burning. I threw an extra piece of foil on and it helped a lot. Since then I haven't done it because I pack my own bowls :P

I'm wondering if that wouldn't be a bad idea to do when smoking tangiers double the HD foil on the bowl. You think about it, it would help with heat management seeing as you could still use the number of coals you use on other tobaccos just without worrying about it burning as much seeing as tangiers hates heat? Never thought of it

Since I started with the double foil, I have to say that my sessions have been so much more enjoyable. The last few sessions with AF I tried going with three sheets of foil. I like a lot of AF flavors, but have found AF to be one of the more finicky shishas to smoke. The last few sessions have been the most enjoyable by far. I thought this may have been a fluke at first. After several weeks of doing this, I have gotten very consistant results. So I figured I'd share an update.

Makes sense... but I'm sure it wouldn't hurt, but maybe help tangiers from getting too harsh as sometimes it tends too right?

couldn't hurt to try, if something works for you then do it, it doesn't matter if its the way everyone else does it

One layer of thin, cheap sh*t foil for everything.
Once you learn heat management, you don't need any more.

Yeah, not a pro yet. Until then, two layers HD foil seems to help quite nicely.

I have always used 1 layer of HD foil or 2 of regular and have never had any issues. I guess I see no reason to waste extra foil. If it ain't broke, why fix it lol.

I've never doubled up the foil, but I usually get HD. If I use regular, still one sheet. Heat management FTW.

I only use double foil when using my electric coals. With proper heat management and placement (as well as packing) double foil is rarely needed unless you have very sensitive shisha.

Strange thing is I was smoking some SB pumpkin pie and it was not reacting well to two layers of foil. As soon as I took it down to one layer it smoked perfectly fine 0.o With two it was getting outrageously harsh
