Default I need a little "professional" direction

im not exactly new to hookah in time as i've been smoking for atleast a year or two but it wasn't consistant. i started off only smoking starbuzz cause i heard that was the best. i had a bad hookah bar experience where they didn't know what they were doing, really harsh. but i eventually wandered into unfamiliar territory and went to a local smoke shop seeing as the only one that sells starbuzz is quite far and i didn't wanna make the drive but i picked up a few boxes of AF and tried them and it was a bit tricky getting down the heat management and the packing the right way especially with they're supposed new cut but i liked it when it wasn't harsh.

i also tried some peach AW and that was ok too, it had a little bit of throat tickle but it was ok in the end. the AW vanilla made me gag just by the smell and after 2 pulls i just about vomited.

anyway i was wondering about new brands? and flavors?
i was thinking about nahkla, nakla sp?
and pharoah, fantasia, those are the only brands i can get my hands on directly others i'd have to order and im having a hard time cause i lack a credit card and the sites wont take my debit so what would you suggest?

on a side note is it just me or do i have to use an actual CREDIT card?
is there another way?

You could get one of those preloaded credit cards? They cost probably 3 dollars and you can put quite a bit on them.

Just about any store will carry them. Walgreen, Walmart, Some grocery store, many convenience stores and even some other retailers such as target. The green dot card is easy to get online and I believe they will take your debit card for your payment.

As for tobaccos, I have heard that Pharoahs isn't that good, Nakhla is good if you prefer a more natural flavor with the complex undertones of the tobacco. Fantasia is a bit candyish but does have some really good flavors. As for price ranges, Nakhla is probably your best bet.

walgreens. it's called a greendot card. it costs $4.95 to activate the card, you can put between $20.00-$500.00 on it, and the card will work in 60 minutes.

the only downside is that there are absolutely no refunds, and it's cash only, meaning you can't activate a greendot card with a debit/credit card.

oh, i work at walgreens by the way

I'd urge you to stay away from Pharaoh if you like natural flavors. My friend had a 50g Strawberry and Kiwi Strawberry. They smelled the same and they tasted the same. Very sweet, unnatural, artificial strawberry flavor. Sorta like a bad Kool Aid taste....

you can get one time use and multi use (one site) e cards through paypal plug in, instant active. i dont think there are restrictions on them like on using paypal to buy tobacco, ive used them many times when i had cash in paypal and didnt want to wait the 4 days to transfer it to my account for cigars and hookah stuff

as to flavors, natural flavors are pretty constant in nakhla, its not going to be as smooth or dense smoke as SB though but you get over that when you get to the flavors

well i'll experiment with both nakhla and pharoahs.
thinks for all the input guys i really appreciate it.
as for the shisha.
any suggested flavors to start?
i don't know what natural tastes like though so i have no idea what you're talking about.
you mean like strawberry tasting like actual strawberries?
in that direction?

wow that even sounded stupid in my head.
just ignore my momentary stupidity i guess im still kinda new.
or just not as experienced.

Nakhla is good stuff, but DeSeb said, you might want to stay away from Pharohs.
Three brands I would absolutely suggest are Nakhla, Tangiers (takes a bit to learn and depending on your climate it can be difficult to work with, but once you get it right you'll like), and SOMETIMES Al Fakher.

If you like traditional shisha, Desi Murli is the way to go. I forget the site to purchase it at, but I'm sure Puck will come around and share the link.
$4 for 300g

Yea, it tastes really artificial. It's too sweet and doesn't have any of the actual strawberry taste. You know how strawberry is not only sweet it also has a sour note to it?? Yea, it only has sweetness to it.
It's also heavily dyed. It was bright red. And it's very very moist and squeezed into a can....
And like I said, Strawberry & Strawberry/Kiwi tasted alike....
