Default nasty hose?

Well, everybody, I've got a question. I'm at my girlfriend's place, and smoking out of a generic egyptian, not a bad pipe really. However, the hose was washed by one of our friends not knowing it would rust the inside. This thing doesn't taste too great, but it's the first time i've smoked HH orange. It tastes alright, but it's not that orangey. Could this hose be effecting the taste to that much of a negative extent?

It will not make flavorful tobacco lose flavor. It will add unpleasant flavor to the smoke and cause flecks of rust and leather in your mouth. If the tobacco is lacking in flavor it's not a problem with the hose. As a secondary note order a new hose. Even just a plastic healthy hose is better than smoking through a hose with a rusted coil.

It could be the hose, or as kalutika stated, another issue (in all probability). A rusted hose is not really safe to smoke from as you can inhale the bits that flake off, a new hose would be a safe bet (look for a washable if ya want to be safe from now on). Now as to lack of taste, you'll have to supply a few more details about how you set-up everything and rig/coals... someone will have tips once they know what ya using.

Just cut off and clean the tips and then stick them in some 3/4" braided vinyl PVC. Works like a charm and will help open up the draw of the hose especially if its a mya/generic leather hose. There are a couple of "How to"s on this forum. It ends up costing a little under $4 at the most.

Lmao Abu maybe they want to get the rust out of your hose

Back on topic smoking out of a rusted hose is bad period get another hose or mod the hose as suggested.
