Default CH nats vs CH quick lights?

I have been using CH quick lights for a few months now and I think they are great, but I want to know from other smokers if there is a difference between the CH natural coals and the CH quick light coals. I know they are pretty much the same thing after they are lite but I want to know if there is a difference if temps and session times. Do the naturals last longer then the Quick lights? Basically I am asking If you compromise something for the faster lighting?

I've used both. I prefer Naturals, but the Quick Lites are really really good and don't flavour the tobacco at all, unlike most Quick Lites. If you want a coal that lights up quick, go for the Quick Lites. Otherwise, if you have patience go for Naturals man.

i have used both and i do see a difference in performance. both coals are great. however, the natties last longer and stay hotter longer as well.

I noticed some taste interference with the QL's and absolutely none with the naturals. After trying the naturals there's pretty much no way I'm buying the QL's again, there is definitely a big difference.

i prefer the naturals when I'm at home. I usually bring the quicklites with me if I go somewhere with my rig.

same thing with me yeags, always nats at home unless, i am in no mood to light them, or if i am somewhere i can't light them.
there definitely is a difference in performance, ash, and timing is always based on a few things(the weather, how frequently and long you pull on the hose whether you are using a windcover or not and even humidity) the nats ash much easier, i just drop them off the side of the bowl and into the tray and whatever comes off is good, usually everything on the nats, but sometime you need to scrape them off the QL's. As far as taste, every coal, nat or ql has some type of taste, just sme have a lot less. i don't taste anything on the nats, but on the QL's I do get some taste, however it's nothing like any other QL I have used.
It just depends on your preference, some people are totally fine with QL's exclusively or they don't have the means or patience to light nats.

I've noticed quick burn time with my QL's compared to 3 kings large quicklightcoals. Size and composition has a lot to do with this I think.

Some good help here. Especially from John, but he cheated, they are his coals.

My hookah is always a travel hookah. I think I've smoked it at my own house only 4 times. While I smoke it at friends at least 2 times a week. So it is easy to use the quick lights. I have a cheap portable stove I got back when I was using coconaras. Maybe I will break that back out and try some of the natural CH coals and see how I like them.

Thanks yall

In smoking 4 bowls with the CH QL's with my new AF pipe--- It usually takes about 6 coals start to finish a lightly packed small funnel bowl. 3 to crank up the session and 3 more about 15 minutes into the smoke.

Anyone else have similar burn times with QL's?

i agree with john except i learned a new trick if you put a fan on to wards the QL coals after they are ready to go you get no taste at all give it a shot. there both great coals IMO. But you get more for your buck with the naturals.

naturals are a bit smaller, ash less, last a lot longer, take about 5 minutes to light with a windcover on the stove, and are not quick lighting (obviously).

the ql's are great but they don't last as long as i'd like them to and you only get 108 versus 132 with the naturals.

both are fantastic coals though.
