Default Whats Wrong With My Setup??

So the small tangeirs bowl arrived today, aswell as the cocobrico coals, i packed the bowl fairly loosly and just under the rim, used a 3 ring hole pattern with a toothpick, so fairly large holes, used two fully hot coals, and the smoke was thinish, and there wasnt much flavour, whats wrong?

i redid the hole pattern i used just to show you, and the shisha i use is a standard egpytian one, 28" i think. Ive searched on this forum alot, and looked and lots of differnt vids but still cant get it sorted, as its a tangeirs bowl, do i need to pack it alot more densly?

What I normally do is poke holes straight across with a toothpick, but skipping over the center hole. I come back to it in the end and poke one or 2 holes in the center depending on the size and then test the air flow. Also with my small phunnel bowl I use 3 coals, and be sure to mix your tobacco around to get all the juices from sitting at the bottom before you pack your bowl.

I personally have less holes, but imo holes dont matter a great deal with most brands, but for AF i pack it down a lot and then do big holes but less of them

try packing your tobacco tight, your foil holes are look good, just try not poking any holes over the center hole in the phunnel.
if that doesn't work, try using a real tobacco


that base is awesome by the way

made another head, used slightly more holes, didnt put one in the centre and used 3 coals, smoke was better, it was thicker but not as thick as i would like, flavour was better but only could taste a hint of it, so a big improvement overall, packed the head fairly firm aswell, thanks for the help.

Use hole patterns that work for you.

Your tobacco choice might be it.

I don't use the bowl for more flavor though, I use it for the tobacco amount it holds and for jucier tobaccos, a regualr clay bowl works fine and gets as much flavor imo.
