Default Made something today

So today I was kinda bored at work so I decided to make something for my hookah. I've been using the tin foil ring to improve the flavor, smoothness and longevity of my smoke. But as you all know, Tin foil doesnt last forever. So here's what I did...

This is a piece of Aluminum tubing, measuring roughly 1/2" tall, 1 1/2" in diameter and 1/16" thick. As you can see, I polished it. Starting with 400 grit on an orbital sander moving to 1000, 1200, 1500 then 3000 followed by 3M Extra Cut compound and then 3M Foam Pad Polishing compound.

Here you can see the ring compared to what I previously use along with a 40mm Golden Coal.

Here's a video of it. Please take into consideration that I used a point and shoot camera for my video which only allows 30 second clips so it took a few lol.

Wow! that's pretty good... Does this ring actually make a worthy difference? I've read many mixed opinions on the matter. Some people say it's completely pointless, others say it actually improves the session... Obviously you were willing to put in some elbow grease to make a durable ring, which leads me to believe that it should be worth it. But I want a more detailed review on it. I'm always open to something new that might enhance my sessions, but I want to hear it from someone with personal experience to see if it's worth it or not.

I will be more than happy to actually review it this weekend. All I need is a decent camera. To answer your question, yes, I've used the tin foil one and it improved the taste greatly. Takes a little longer to get the clouds coming but its worth it

takes longer to heat up, little to no chance of it ever burning the tobacco but there is the slight chance of it melting the aluminum foil if you use one that is too thin
