With my vortex I mainly use 3 CH naturals to start it off, then drop one and put on the wind cover...Works great, no issues...

this reminded me what i realized this week, how i am smoking usually in my apartment with 3 coals on my bowls, i am some what under air flow and it is able to keep the heat pulled away some so when i am not under the air flow i start to get harsh smokes. kind of weird how used i got to it

Only 33m 3Kings, Belgians and 35m Akhla QLs. I use one when using my Lebanese bowl, 2 when using my Vortex and three 33m on my phunnel. If I'm out of 33's I use 2 Akhla on the phunnel.

My two favorite coals to use are the Japanese golden coals and ******* hookah quicklights. The jap coals make heat management so easy. Also hard for me to burn tobacco with them. I like the ******* quicklights because they light up really fast and don't make too much of a mess. Both of these coals are also a nice square shape so they don't mover around on the bowl too much.

I did like coconaras but they are a little pricey. Exoticas were also good but they are a little too messy for me.

I use coconaras, but those easy light exoticas are alright if you get the paint off of them, they give off much more heat. The small layer of paint will absorb a lot of heat and they wont smoke well.

******* coals are one of the best coals around, both the quick lites and the regular ones! A quick note tho, if you use the quick lites, make sure you lite them outside unless you want your house to smell like a forest fire.

I switch between Exotica Naturals and quick lights. I do love me some Coco Naras though.

30mm Three Kings Quicklights.... The best I've used... The best, in my opinion.... Also, avoid Akhal QLs-- they produce smoke a lot and release too much heat at once... the darn things can't last a good session....

I've been using a variety of coals...

I like the Jap easy lights, though I've always used 3 on a funnel (and I don't take one off—three arranged carefully on the outside seems to work well for me). The Exotica ones I've been using tend to break down the middle while lighting on a burner, so on a standard Egyptian bowl, I just use 2 1/2. So maybe try 3 on the vortex?

Mainly though I use coconut coals, either CH or Starlight. Starlights are available locally, CH whenever I place an order with John.
