Default Amature w/lots of questions

I figure instead of starting a bunch of threads with each question, I would just ask them all here. I don't maybe this can help others as well. So on to the questions.

I am looking for a good 2 hose hookah, I know everyone says "stick with 1 hose". That really isn't a viable option because when me and "TheGirlfriend" smoke we game, which means we are sitting across the room from each other. I figure throwing 1 hose back and forth doesn't seem like a good idea. I first though, "I must get a KM, they are the best thing ever!", but my opinion has kinda changed. Anyway before I drone on to much longer. My question is what would be a really good 2 hose hookah to get, I really like KMs and Nours. Does some one have a suggested specific hookah?

I just read about some one doing something called Acclimating, it is referring to tangiers. I was wondering what he meant and is it only done with tangiers? Why do you acclimate tangiers shisha

Last night I smoked out of my Tangiers phunnel bowl for the first time last night and I couldnt get good smoke from it. I was using a single layer of foil, 3 coconara's and I was smoking Nakhal double apple. The bowl was lightly packed with random evenly spaced holes. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get better smoke?

Thanks in advance.

1st I understand wanting a 2 hose, that's pretty much the only reason to get one. With a KM or Nour you would have to hold your thumb over the hose you aren't using since it doesn't seal automatically. Since you said the whole point is cause you game, that doesn't seem efficient. I would recommend a MYA with the autoseal feature. It's basically a ball bearing in the hose port so it seals it off when you aren't using it.

you only acclimate tangiers, other shisha will just dry out if you leave it out.

I dunno you'd have to be more specific about packing, hole pattern, etc. I find my phunnel(caravan so generic not tangiers) to be really, really inconsistent with how well it works. Sometimes great with good flavor and nice clouds, sometimes crappy with just wisps. I just get lucky I guess lol

Practice practice practice. See what works for you. It took me a good couple of months to have a good technique down. Now, I can tell when it's cold, hot, etc. Just don't be impatient, I've found that the only way to get good consistent smoke is to let the bowl warm up slowly. Maybe around 8-10 puffs or so. Good luck.

Or, you could spend 1 more dollar and invest in two of these.

It will allow you to get a KM, and you wont have to deal with the pulls being harder from an autoseal. It is the best option imo.

I have a 2 hose KM trimetal (og i think) and it smokes great. If i feel like smoking it alone I have a stopper and it just needs to get electric taped a little because its too small and seals perfectly.

I used to have problems smoking nak out of my phunnel too so I went back to egyptian and havent had a bad bowl since. its just easier (for me at least)

Try packing it tight and full with Nakhla DA. Use a lot of holes poked all the way down to the bottom. Nakhla smokes better out of a Tangiers phunnel when treated similar to Tangiers Noir tobacco.
