Default Can a session last 4 hours?

I heard that it could last 4 hours. Well im a bit unconvinced since my vortex and razan is just on the way to me, so i couldnt try that out yet.
Did someone ever have a session that lasted 4 hours?

Not with a vortex with a medium or large phunnel yeah you could get 4 hours out of it

Yes a 4 hour session is possible, but why would you want to smoke for 4 hours straight?

whenever i go to tangiers it seems like eric is smoking the same bowl hours before i get there and hours after i leave. he does claim to smoke the same bowl for hours and even claims he's smoked a bowl 14 hours once, i have not seen this nor could i do this if i wnted to, which i don't. his set up is with a large phunnel bowl.
i just like to smoke for 30-60 minutes alone, usually the time it takes to go through one set of coals. if i am in a social setting, i like to smoke for 2-4 hours, but i have no problem replacing my bowl. Also, it's fun to change flavors and/or just have a fresh bowl.

After I go through 2 sets of coals, I've usually had quite enough or the shisha has lost flavor. I'd repack the bowl after that if I really wanted to keep smoking. I've never been able to make a session last near that long with a medium phunnel... but I've never tried.

I understand that you could get about 2 hours on a single vortex bowl. However I must agree with Hajo, Unless you are smoking with several friends it is not a healthy thing to do.

I would think you'd be extremely bored with the flavor your smoking lol
I usually use a small Egyptian bowl rather then a vortex or funnel so i can switch the flavors more often

I smoke for 3 hours most of the time. I get bored with flavor after a while and have to change it up but that doesn't mean i can't go back to that bowl later to finisher her off

In my experience, a vortex bowl is good for one round of coals and won't last very long into a second round. It would be hard for me to get 2 hours out of a vortex mainly because packing it with enough moassel to last that long will restrict the flow too much. A vortex bowl is already the most restrictive part when using my KM or rebuilt AF and rebuilt hoses.

Personally I'd rather load a second vortex bowl and swap it when I start a second round of coals.

I did it once and only because I wanted to see if I could. Small funnel with Tangiers Cocoa and a little Fusion Strawberry Margarita. It's possible with the right coals, bowl and most importantly tobacco. Frankly I don't do it much because usually I am more than bored of a flavor by that time and most tobacco losses flavor long before it loses the ability to produce clouds.

we would do it at the hookah bar but hookah bars have some special magic to keep you bowl going longer. with tangiers i dont doubt it at all, i feel the tobacco starts to get a charred flavor a bit but there is still flavor and smoke. but i will say no way in hell i can set up an egyptian bowl to smoke 4 hours, 2 sets of coals and it would be totally dead, i only do one set of coals which lasts me about 60-80 mins, then swap the bowl and do one set on that. thats my daily routine.

With my social smoke party bowl it takes 4 sets of 4 33mm quick lights to kill it. we've smoked that thing for over 4 hours without a repack, and took the foil off once to stir the stuff from the bottom up towards the top.

Yea i've done that before with a medium tangiers, its easier to handle with mint since mint doesnt really lose its flavor as fast.
