Do you guys think this would be worth my time to make?
Ok, made the video. here it is. Probably could have done a little better job, but it is good enough for government work.

Yes! I would definitely watch a video like this. I'd even settle for a small text write up on the subject .

it would actually be cool to see same flavors of different brands
or do a blind test and have your friends try both and pick one without knowing whats packed in which bowl

It's kinda like with SamB's and Jilly's "How to set up a hookah" videos...

This forum gets soooooooo many thread posts about what brands/flavors to get... so maybe this vid could put an end to at least SOME of the redundancy?

High five bro! lol I love me some fantasia mmmhhhmmm haha

i like the idea of two mystery brands and having someone choose over the other that would be cool would be interesting to see what was more appealing.

sounds like a good idea... as long as it is not opinionated... just informational such as... "this is nakhla... it is a drier tobacco with x amont of flavors. this is the cut... medium" etc etc... let them buy flavors to form an opinion on what they like. i usually tell people to try something even if i dont like it myself because someone else may love it...

ya i think its a good idea and what we might want to do is put a sticky up with the vid and a written over view of the tobacco.

honestly when it comes to flavors though i dont see what people just dont go look at the reviews, that was i always do, if there is something that isnt listed or only has one or 2 non descriptive reviews then i will ask around or when trying to find the best ~insert flavor~ between brands but just as a "whats a good flavor" thread it does get old.

that being said i also wish people would be better about reviewing tobaccos, my self included. i finally started doing it more (after my last order i reviewed basically everything) but there are still a lot of missing flavors even with 7-10 pages of reviews on a brand

to make it easier for people to find what flavor they want to try the tobacco should be organized by flavor... such as

>Nakhla

then in the nakhla thread a list of flavors that you can click on and it will show all of the reviews for that particular flavor

>>Apple
>Apricot
>Banana
>Cherry
>Double Apple

etc etc....

i know that my post kinda belongs in a suggestion thread tho.

[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium]Well yeah, that would be a good idea. I like the blind test idea (opinion on the soda commercial tests nonwithstanding), and it would be helpful to clear out some of the posts in here from new guys/gals that want to know what shisha to buy.

Oh, and I love Fantasia. Strawberry Lemonade.
