Default Picking you coals

I have almost gone through my first box of coals that came with my hookah.
So now i have to decide what coals to buy.
I am pretty sure i want quick light.. but.. how do i pick brands and how does the quality of coal affect my smoke? I know how it works but not specially different cheap/expensive coals differ.

I can't tell you what will work best for you but for my set-up's and my tobaccos I get the best out of three different brands of QLs. Akhla 35mm, Belgian 33mm, and ************* coconut Instantlights. All three work fantastic. And the lower the quality of coal, usually the worse the smell and aftertaste due to additives and cheaper quality materials.

******* Hookah QL's all the way, they're basically a natural coal. I guess picking coals is better than picking your nose...

Personally, I shy away from QLs. They always seem to give me a headache. I had a full box of 33mm 3K QL and I'll never use them. I got Exoticas and I was hooked. I'm going to get some CH coals from John when I'm off hookah probation.

Why do you hate to say it? Are you saying that there is something wrong or bad with CH coals?

I am on my 4th kilo of CH QLs. I gave ahkla's a few chances and they either blew up on lighting or I could taste the coals when smoking.

I've used Golden, Akhla, and Three Kings. My preference goes in that order but from what I've read I'd just go with CH Quick lites, I've just never had a tobacco order large enough to justify the shipping of the coals so I went to tobacco stores around my college and worked with what I had.

Golden coals aren't bad. I much prefer them over 3Kings, or Akhla. 3Kings taste bad, and Akhla smoke all over the place AND taste bad. GOldens really aren't noticable unless you've been smoking nats forever.
