Default Is this really true?

Hey!

I was just surfing around, and stumbled upon this site: http://www.al-fakher-tobbaco.com/cart/

It just seems to cheap to me to be true :S

1kg jars for 37$ , and FREE international shipping worldwide.

Does anyone have experience with them, cause to me this is too good to be true :S

...so 6 kilos is 300 dollars...but 1 kilo is 37.

37 * 6 is less than 300. I think they suck.

It is still Al Fakher, if it was 5.00$ with free shipping for a kilo, I STILL wouldn't purchase it.

If it were the last shisha on the planet, I would swear off hookah rather than purchase it.

You should definitely get the mint, no matter what you can only love it when you mix it with other brands/flavours.. Love their mint

#Sheikh
Hah, true enough. But a little debate has never hurt

ya I know its only banter I mean I knock Nakhla sometimes but I always remember without Nakhla there probably wouldn't have been Al Fakher and without Al Fakher there probably wouldn't have been Starbuzz etc etc that IS what it boils down to at the end of the day.

ouch i put in 40 ish worth of stuff as I was just gonna try a small order and they have an estimate shipping button (nice touch for any site) and the shipping is estimated at 60!!! So need to trial a big order to take advantage of it really I think.

ok this forum has some hate against al fakher and love to nakhla..
maybe that is because nakhla is better tobacco? maybe?
or maybe its just plain psychology.. but if u want to talk fair about AF. this it not the forum to try it .. cus sometimes people bash something for other reasons .. theres where the psychology comes in..

IMO
some flavours of AF are really god , some not.. just the same way with nakhla to starbuzz.. but I do belivie all brands have their weak and storng sides.. but its all about the teqnic u use.. and I think its veeery rare to really find a so called "bad batch" then u might think form reading here..

Al fakher was one of the most popular shishas on here. Then it wasn't. It wasn't a lie or a trick or an illusion that made it this way; their product went to shit. End of story.

Yes, i have tried AF twice. I got a 50g or Grenadine, it was alright. It was too sweet, i think there was no tobacco in it, just pure grenadine. Then i got a 250g of fruit cocktail, i have packed only 4 bowls of it and i was unable to finish each one. It was HORRID. Scratchy throat, coughing with every pull, and i had less coals then i normally did. Then after inspecting the bowl, i found that none of it burned. Its just a bad quality shisha and the biggest waste of money ive come across in the hookah market. Never again will i smoke AF, unless it is an old batch that is still good, and its free.

If it seems too good to be true...

Something about that website isn't right. Like the name (tobbaco?). They sell a hookah, not Al Fakher hookahs but something they call Maya Gelato Grande.

They say that they are located in Dubai, but according to Al Fakher's official website: "Al-Fakher company is totally located in Ajman". I don't know

Has anyone ordered from that site?

I think this company is a re-seller of Al Fakher shisha... not Al Fakher the manufacturer itself.
