Default Al Fakher horible 1st impression

So i had my 1st Al Fakher yesterday and i was seriously disappointed. It was AF watermellon. The flavor was alright, nothing like HH flavor but the main problem that i got was the nasty scratchy feeling in my throat it totaly ruined any good flavor from the shisha it was a total let down. anyone else get this scratchy sensation, because if this is usual for AF i wont be buying the shisha again.

I have gotten a scratchy sensation with AF Watermelon, but I this is the only AF flavor with such a sensation. You should try AF Grenadine, Mint or Cocktail. All are great flavors.

i smoked af watermelon last night, i agree about the scratchy feeling but it only happened with me for 10 minutes. you need to put less heat on, then once the scratchy feeling goes away you can put more heat on to up your cloud size.

it's a great flavor, it's one of my top 5 AF flavors but the heat is a bit tricky for this flavor.

i have not tried AF strawberry but AF bubble gum is REALLY GOOD. i'm sure you'll like that, just be careful with your heat management.

i used 3 ch natural coals and i had the windcover on for about the 1st 5 min to get it going than i kept taking it on and off the whole session but the scratchy sensation was there the whole time. 3 coals shouldnt be to much heat for that should it? i was using a tangiers small phunnel with 2 layers of non hd foil

yeah man, that is a lot of heat. try two CH coals with the windcover until it gets started. take off the windcover, and smoke for 10 minutes. put another ch coal on there with no widcover. try that out, seems to work for me. except i use exotica coals. CH naturals are great, though.

let me tell u something about AF Da.. when it tastes bad , thats when a normal perosn removes heat and its even worse and u might get styrange throat.. but the thing with Af Da is .. if it tastes bad, you should actually in most cases add MORE heat.. dont forget this theory when you experiment with AF

sounds like you got a batch of af watermelon like mine - a whole tub that so far no-one can smoke without that dang throat tickle. Annoying as heck... I've given up and are considering tossing it.... 4 people have tried smoking, different ways, and still it's a no-go. Blarg... good luck w/ yours.

My AF Fruit Cocktail has this exact scratchy feeling to it. I have yet to finish a bowl. Everyone else who has smoked it was like wtf is that?

I suffer from this from all 4 af flavors be tried. Personally I just acclimated it for a couple of hours and packed it a tad bit tighter in my phunnel bowl. Works great and the scrath was gone. Try it and let me know if it helped. Don't give up on watermelon yet. It's one of the better ones out there.
