Default al fakher apple harsh?

well so far 4/4 al fakher double apples have been pretty harsh especially near the end. its tough to describe..almost like..an extremely warm almost hot smoke sensation, i smoke WAY too much hookah, i would consider myself fairly good smoker that can take a nice long hit, but not so much with this, i literally have to stop.. the hit is smooth at first and gets so harsh i cant finish it.. any ideas?

no tickles, more like very hot and obviously its just a huge wave (too much) of the apple flavor and its extremely warm, the bowl is packed right, and just using 3 kings ql's

edit: i should have read further in the forum, http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...580#post194580

I had the same issue with AF DA and I couldn't fix it. The solution is to stop smoking AF.

They're orange is amazing. Thats all my GF will smoke if I have it. I've given her 500g of the stuff because I got her a hookah and she went through that in a month by herself. I just hope that the AF DA will be up to that standard because I have some being delivered tomorrow from HJ.

try not packing you bowl too much and put the coal on the very edges of the bowl. Also making holes close to eachother near the edges, and more spaced out as you make them in the middle.
I used to like AF DA, but as bigpoppa just said, as a now self respecting hokkah smoker, i dont go near it lol
Hope this has helped!

What kind of hookah are you using? and what kind of bowl? 3 coals of any kind on a standard egyptian bowl will produce harsh smoke.

I smoke AF DA and i personally think its a great shisha, very strong taste, taste a lot like sambucca, which i like. So imo its not the shisha its the setup.
