Default CocoNara vs Exotica vs ******* Coals Naturals

hello hookahpro members. im in need of new coals and im not sure which coal i should buy. ive tried exotica coals with amazing results. they were my first coals i used to get away from those shisha flavor killing quick lights. but now im in the mood to try some of those coconut coals i hear so much about. but idk if i should spend my money on something that wont be better than the exotica i use...so my question is if you had to choose between coconara, exotica, and/or ******* natural coals which would you personally pick?

I've tried Exoticas, Coconaras, CH, and Nour. IMO, Coconaras are the best coals you can find in the US market for two reasons. First, there is no taste at all from the coals. Secons, they provide a good amount of heat and they last longer than others.

I've used Exoticas, ShishaCo and ******* Hookah and honestly my favorite were the ShishaCo's.

cocnaras are amazing coals but ******* hookah naturals are also right up there. i switch off between the two but coconaras do last longer and to me they put out the most heat out of the three (coconara, CH natural and exotica)

The only coals I have in my stash are Coconaras and ******* Hookah QLs. The best coals of each type.

2 hours !! I've never had a two hours session with a single set of CN or any type of coals. Usually, with a wind cover, it lasts for 1-1.5 hour maximum.

Ive used exoticas and CH coals, I do have a small box of cocos that I haven't used yet but after I do I may be on the coco crazies bandwagon.

I was just over at a friend's house where we used both CH and Coconara coals and here's what I discovered.

CH= light a little bit faster.
Coco= last longer and ash a lot less.

If you're on a budget, the CH coals are a better choice IMO b/c you get a lot more coals per box for a little bit cheaper. Either one will work fine, but Coco's are a little higher quality.

I can't say anything about Exoticas though, since I've never tried them.

personally how long it takes to light the coals doesnt really bother me because the coals is the first thing i do while i set up for a smoke and the amount of time you get with them sounds like its worth the wait!!

AF Coconut coals?
I have 4 boxes of CH Nats
One Kilo of Coco Naras
& about 7 boxes of the 60 pc AF Coals.
I prefer Coco Naras the best, but AF Coals, IMO are better than the CH coals. Although the CH coals are faster, the AF Coals last a tad longer & ash less.

& Exoticas are on the bottom IMO. I don't even have an extra box

CH easily beats those out for Price, burn time, and Quality.

Not even a question.

Exoticas are absolutely terrible.

Coconaras suck for the price/amount ratio... but they win for everything else (heat, ash, taste, longevity). ShishaCo coals are a good compromise between quality/price. They are close to CNs in terms of performance and useful life, but they ash a lot more.

CH nats are decent but I dislike the fact that little burning rocks detach from the coal when you move it around. I once accidentally dropped a CH coal from the bowl and it crashed-landed in the tray, sending dozen of red hot rocks flying everywhere and leaving permanent burning marks on my carpet and table. But that's just my horror story, if you're not a dumbass you shouldn't have any trouble with John's coals.

Haven't tried exoticas.

I never thought ashing was a problem with my CH nats, I only have to ash about twice during the whole session and it's as easy as dropping them on your tray and picking them back up.

I'll have to do a review of the AF coconut naturals when they come in soon.
