Default One Hookah per flavour

Hi guys, first time posting so sorry if i get some things wrong but i had a long unansweared question that needs to be answeared. Ok i own about 4 hookahs normal ones nothing special and im going to order a khalil mamoon soon. Question: is it better to use just one hookah for one flavour say double apple and another for strawberry or other things? Cause a friend of mine told me it s better cause even if u wash it properly the taste can still remain in the stem or in the UNWASHABLE hose...
well there u have it....i would really appreciate your opinions and any help given
cheers!

no, i smoke several different flavors in my hookah. as long as you clean it well, (lemon juice/baking soda) a flavor shouldnt ghost your hookah. Get several hoses and use them for diff flavs. over time the flavor gets enhanced if using one hose for one flavor.

Well, yes, it would be "better", but that's quite a lot of money/cleaning time/etc.

A good cleaning after a pungent flavor will do a hookah good, of course. Cleaning a hookah is like cleansing it's palate, so the next flavor or brand you smoke will come through full force.

The main problem with ghosting flavors is with hoses. Razan/Nammor/Grand hoses do not absorb flavors like leather hoses do, and are a very good investment.

Hoses, on the other hand, should be kept separate. As you mentioned, Double Apple is a very strong flavor and should have it's own hose if you enjoy smoking it often. I personally have a plain Desi Murli tobacco hose, I love the flavor of that tobacco and I want the complexity to come through each time I smoke it.

If I smoke my usual mindblowingly strong flavours without washing I start to get very complex flavour profiles.

If I wash it its no big deal (as long as I have not smoked cardamom).

+1

I am working out how to organize my 4 hoses to 4 categories of flavors, with one hose being dedicated to one flavor (most likely Horchata).

no yea its better but like zen said it would cost more and take more time for cleaning... so if you want to try another flavor that you have never tried before.. are you going to go and buy another hookah just to try that one flavor?? uhh no that really doesnt make sense to me sorry, not logical... just clean out your hookah after every use. and your good. If you want the flavor to be strong just keep a unwashable assigned to one specific flavor and your set.. the hose will absorb the flavor and it will be stronger everytime you smoke with that hose and that specific flavor..

yep and you can even eat the fruits while you are smoking like sometimes with double apple I try to shove 2 apples in my mouth but it gets kind of messy.

i dont have a problem with it i wash mine every time i use it. i rinse the inside of the hose's with hot water and try my best to only in the water in the hose. then blow them out and hang them up to dry in my closet

hahaha so true.

I would like to recommend you a KM Pro hose though, the gauge is extremely wide. Nammors are great hoses because they are washable, but, they do not last too long. Mine lasted about 5 or 6 months and my KM hoses are lasting longer.

Its not the hookah its the hookah whose that will hold most of the flavors. so my advice to you is clean your hookah well and use different hoses for different flavors

its idea to have separate hookahs for each flavor but its not realistic. personally i have a hose that i use pretty much only for chocomint (if you use a hose for every flavor the hose can get some weird flavors but usually you can smoke past them in a few mins, how ever if you use a hose for just one or 2 flavors it will pick up the flavor a lot, i can literally just inhale on my hose i use for chocomint i get a lot of flavor)

i plan to get a few hoses with my new hookah in august so i can separate out hoses for flavors i smoke a lot of (such as DA, chocomint)
