Lightbulb why is wetter better?

if noticed that most of you guys enjoy or talk about how juicy or wetter the shisha is, but why is it that you guys like it really wet. i ask this because i usually pat dry my shisha before i put it in a bowl. i have noticed that its a better smoke and is a little bit tastier. let me know what you guys think.

Not too many people here are going to tell you that jucier is inherently better... Jucier, in general, means it is a little more resiliant with heat, and has bigger clouds. Thats pretty much it.

Personally i like my tobacco juicy but not REALLY juicy.

Wetter is fine if its a wet t-shirt contest. Personally I feel that if its a little more "traditional" it just has better taste. Clouds really aren't that important, but flavor is.

more juice doesnt always mean more flavor. it does mean it's less prone to burning and will give better clouds though.

personally for me the "juicy" seems to last a bit longer then the "dryer" shisha, but they is a limit to it, some shisha is practical just flowing in juice for no reason such as fantasia.

But when i say juicy and dryer im comparing it to the same brand and not overall shisha in general

Wetter = bigger clouds?

hardly...

my sweet melon (sticky but not wet) paired with my 36" KM gives me the biggest clouds to date.

Yea, so far i havent found much of a correlation in smoke to how wet the shisha is. I mean chances are, stuff like epic will smoke good because its floating in glycerine, but you can get clouds almost as big as that in shisha that is much much dryer. Perhaps its the type of juice used in it, like glycerine, or honey, or molasses. Some juices might smoke better, last longer, expell more flavor, or burn easier.

If I wasn't at work I would put my two cents in... But what I would say may get caught by the spam filters at work as 'not appropriate' . Stupid shisha slang.

I like a little wetter shisha because it lasts longer and has a lower chance to burn.

wetter shisha = washing your hands 3 times to get the color off your hands.

I wouldn't say wet/juicy shisha is better, especially if too wet/juicy because imo i find that it tastes too artificial and the texture of the smoke is also alot less rich. I prefer it to be moist like nakhla, which has an oily like texture rather than juicy.

Shisha tobacco is not supposed to be completely dry, if it is then thats bad because it usually means that the tobacco isn't fresh and is prone to burning and can therefore be quite harsh on the throat.

supposedly wet lasts longer and resists heat more and gives bigger clouds.

i will grant the clouds can be bigger but the wet tobaccos in my experience seem to not be more heat resistant in fact the opposite, dont necessarily last longer, dont have more flavor, and frankly its less tobacco per weight and less bowls per weight because of that

yea, i agree. Examples Hookah Hookah, Hookah Freak, Epic Smoke, lots of the herbal stuff, idk if i missed any.
Although, with a little less heat, and in a vortex, sometimes the flavors will pop through, but most of the time its just clouds.

Juice = clouds.

Thats it.

Epic has a lot of juice, and has a lot of clouds, but still tastes like thai hooker.

Nakhla has a lot less juice, in fact its usually more sticky than wet, but tastes amazing.

go figure.
