Default Quick question on exotica coals....

Any reason i should get these:

http://mnhookahs.com/product_info.ph...roducts_id=146


over these:

http://mnhookahs.com/product_info.ph...roducts_id=210


The only difference is the first are whole "finger" logs and the second are pre-cut squares right?

you get 96 pieces with the Japanese coals or 25 "fingers" which break up into 100 if you cut them into quarters.

It's preference really.

Ugh dude.

I may love Exotica Natural Coals..But stay away from the Exotica Japanese silvers.

Well, you can try 'em if ya want lol.

But, they have a bad smell upon lighting and you can kinda taste it too.

IDK, it was last summer when i had a box of these...Dunno if the recipe was changed.

They don't last too long compared to the originals. The new batches of the naturals are the shizz. I'm doing a review on this some time soon.

Hey Jilly,

the thing about the exotica silver japanese coals, is that they smell 3x worse than exotica naturals, you get less per box, and you taste the coal if you leave any of that silver flint shit on it. plus they are more expensive than the natural coal.

just go with the exotica naturals...they are amazing and haven't failed me yet. if you have problems cutting them then just watch this video!!

yeah this is true, these ones don't crack when lit and they light faster.

not trying to mention other forums but shoresidejake from hookahdomain actually just tested a prototype on exoticas new product "Golden" line exotica coals. They are precut and he said on par with coconara.

The best Japanese coals I've ever had were from Fumari. They have the least odor.
