Default New Hose - No Flavor!

Hi,

I just replaced my hose on my std Egyptian hookah, and the flavor of the same shisha is gone! I smoked some Nakhla Liquorice which has plenty flavor - when I switch back to the old hose, the flavor is back!

How is this possible? The new hose is longer and a bit thicker.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Greg

ive heard that some hoses come with a plastic taste to them for a few smokes/washes (if its washable)...ive also heard that wood absorbs alot of flavor so...if its wood i guess theres not much to do..if its plastic or w/e give a a few more smokes and washes

Thanks... I'll try smoke with it again... Its just frustrating to smoke when there is no flavor!

I'm not sure if it is plastic inside... I can feel the metal spirals, but maybe the inside is lined with plastic... it is not a known brand, just what ever the shop had.

new hoses tend to mask flavors with that "new car smell/taste"....kinda gotta muscle it out...or hookah it up to an electric pump to blow air thru it for a few hours.
