I might have to try that. So far I've had no complaints with them, but I love trying out new things so we'll see!

Personally I think the KM tongs are excellent by themselves but I guess that's a cool mod for those who have problems with them.

Bird Tongs ftw.

but yeah, its something I did to my KM tongs, otherwise the flimsy metal cant hold anything.

And honestly I have no problem w/ the mya tongs, I just prefer the Bird Tongs better cause they are as durable and not ginormous.

i may have the same tongs your talking about, at least mine are punched out and chased to have bird head in the end and some other stuff on it.

i found that all tongs need to be bent the ends will come \ / and you need | | to pick up coals, a quick bend should fix most of them. i got a set of mya tongs from my friend and will probably take them into the metal shop to bent the ends in a clean way

yeah the bottom pair in this picture are the best. http://1shisha.com/images/Tongs.jpg I got them with my first hookah and still use them. they have teeth at the end so they grip the coal ever so nicely, just like the mod showed in this post.

Personally I prefer these: http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1082

They're thick enough to really clamp down on a coal and the non-serrated edges don't tear up my foil (I usually "scoop" the coal up so ash doesn't get in my bowl)
