Default km hose works better than nammor?

My km hose has an easier pull than my nammors. I expected the nammors to have a better pull.

I would have thought the same. What type of KM hose do you have?

My KM hoses pull better than my nammor, but I like a tighter pull so I always use my nammor hoses.

Look a little resistance is ok, to remind you that you are smoking and not breathing smoke. You pay that much for a washable hose for 1 main reason. Ghosting. Its not mentioned enough here, I might make a vid for it.

A nonwashable hose should only be used with 1 flavor or similar flavors to it. This hose will build up flavor as long as it is properly maintained. You can smoke out of a 20 year old hose with no fear if you maintain it properly. Just blow on the hose after and before each use.

The washable hose does not build of flavor because you wash it. You wash it cause you don't want your mint you smoked 5 weeks ago to still overpower you melon. You may not the citrus taste of the orange on your single apple flavor.

KM hoses are wide gauged, cool, so is the exhaust on my car, but i try to find a proper pipe instead . They work fine, i don't use it on the KM i own for one main reason, it died. without having pressure applied to it, my KM hose unraveled on the inside, causing it to collapse and making it impossible to smoke out of...honestly went with the craftsmanship of the ashtray and tongs it came with...but anyhow a washable hose shouldnt really be compared to a non washable hose because you should be purchasing them for separate tasks.

i totally disagree.

i just wish you lived near me so you can come and check out my nammors. you try whatever you want to get the flavor out of them. impossible. ive tried anything you can think of (that is safe).

also, it depends on your regular hose. they can't last forever...at least not the km ones. living in a damp environment can even cause them to go bad. moisture in the air will eventually cause it to rust. the oils from the tobacco / flavorings can also cause it to rust eventually.

think of your ball bearing, even if water doesn't touch it, it will eventually get clogged and stuck, possibly rusting.

i had the same leather hose from km for 2 years. there may be flavors ghosting in there, but it still smoked pretty darn good until i decided it was time to hang it up (you can smell / taste something when you blow air through it, but it will always taste like any tobacco i smoked during the session)

I might like my KM hose if they put any reasonable effort into making it



Mismatched mouthpiece, exposed gray inside, hot glue poorly applied and dripped down the length of the handle, poor uneven job overlapping the frilly stuff, broken, flaking wood on the other end of the hose. wtf

If i smoke a strong flavor w/ the namoor i use lemon/lime juice w/ baking soda a few times through.

The ballbearings will rust when you get them wet when you wash your stem, but yeah they get gunk, but if its the same flavor, you'll get an excellent tasting gunk lol.

I've had two namoors now that have lasted almost 3 years now guy, what happens to some people is that they wash the hose with hot water, some people even soak the whole hose, just run water through the hose not all over while making sure the water is warm and you'll be fine.
