just lay around with your set up, for a while i was packing nakhla a bit dense with a good gap in a mod bowl, i can pack it loose in an egyptian with a gap or i can super over pack it where the foil is still being pushed up.

nakhla is not as smooth as SB pure and simple as that, an it is because its unwashed (technically lightly washed but what ever), also lighting up especially can give you some tickle, try putting 2-3 coals on an egyptian (i use 3 CH nats) and let it sit 5, maybe 10 mins then try it, see if its any better, part of it is just that you will need to get used to it.

also i dont pull deeply, i just take 1/3-1/2 a breath when i smoke, it keeps you from getting a huge buzz and doesnt mess with your lungs as much (wont get sore lungs as easily if you smoke to much)

I'm with you I really enjoy the taste of starbuzz. The nicotine content in naklah even bothers me. As far as the taste, SB is pretty intense, but the only naklah I've smoked was fruit punch (ew) and double apple which was bearable. I'm sitting smoking SB pumpkin pie right now and the taste at least in my opinion is great.

It's possible for Nakhla to be harsh. I've once had a really bad batch of sweet melon that was incredibly harsh, no matter how I set up the bowl & coals. Shit happens.

iv tried one coal, two coals. both nats and QL's.
packed tight, packed loose.
iv tried one layer foil and 2 layers. iv got the water all correct.
iv used an egyption and vortex. what could it be??

i like big puffy clouds that starbuzz gives, but nakhla's always harsh.
whyy?

FINALLY! A voice of reason!! LOL............I feel the exact same way, but I for me I'm just more sensitive and prefer Starbuzz over any other. Everybody's different.

I'll admit, for a long time I preferred Starbuzz over Nakhla because my introduction to hookah was at a buddy's practice studio with some Starbuzz to smoke...I hated Nakhla when I first bought it and tried it, but I gotta tell you man, like, these days, like, I prefer Nakhla over Starbuzz, and this has nothing to do with price/money; its all about flavor

exactly what id, say, i cant ever just fully stick to one brand, yh nakhlas great, but i cant luv everything they have, its more like a few from each company, but i am generally annoyed with the price of starbuzz, but i still like a couple of flavours, but honestly i smoke mainly AF some nakhla, (still in the process of trying) very few starbuzz flavour(sumthings always missing) fantasia (blueberry, and sometimes pink lemonade) some fumari, some JM's, but my back to base evryday smoker would have to be al fakher, but lately they have been making rubbish batches
