Default Bad Sessions

Lately I've been smoking out of my QT and the past 3/4 sessions were REALLY bad. The shisha was burning and I was getting harsh smoke.. I'm not even getting big clouds or flavourr. I use a small tangiers phunnel bowl and CH QL. Im not sure if it has anything to do with my water level or how im packing the bowl or anythinggg.. HELP ME GET A GOOD SESSION!! I AM WASTING SHISHA >:[

Keep the water only about an inch or so above the bottom of your stem. Also make sure your ball bearing is there lol (happened to me last night...ball bearing was missing)

umm it's really suppose to unless it doesn't work. You are sure there's a ball bearing in there right? If the ball doesn't come out then how does your purging work?

umm, when you blow in to inhale the ball stays at the end so that the smoke cant escape.. When you blow into the hose the ball bearing goes up and releases the smoke

clean your hookah and hose.... some peoples sessions are ruined by gunky shit. lol the hookah is just fine lol

also dont pack the hell out of the bowl... I know alot of people pack a phunnel where the tobacco goes up and u basically put the foil on it... no pack it just below the center post... make sure the foil is tight...

i'm not quite sure, but i don't think that's the reason for my bad sessions. the shisha is burning fairly quickly

Diffusers make smaller bubbles which leads to less smoke or not as thick. So don't worry bout that.

chsknight said to "take it off" by the way, I referred to his statement.
