Default AF trouble

I've been having a bunch of trouble with Al Fakher, maybe someone can help. It seems to leave an itching sensation in my throat and also the smoke seems really heavy in my chest, like i have to take the smallest hit possible. It never gets harsh tasting at any time though. Please help. Also i am smoking out of a stock mya bambino and using ch ql, at least until tomorrow when my 36" af solid gets here.

For me it depends on the flavor, Watermelon makes my throat tickle the most. I haven't had any issues with Cafe Latte, and my Golden Strawberry. But I have heard of AF smoking harsh lately.

The AF tobacco is known for the throat tickle thing. I have had a couple fierent types anthey both did it. I had the same problem with the smoke too. For me the problem was the heat. Too much heat and the smoke was impossible to inhale, too little heat and there wants any flavor or smoke. I couldnt get it right. So i stopped smoking AF, but my AF 30" hookah is lovely.

I think I had this same problem with some DA that I got yesterday. No harshness at all on the draw, but my throat kinda burned on exhale. I just decided to chalk it up to their DA not being so great, as I haven't had this problem with my AF Cinnamon or Mint, but I put on some pineapple today and am getting the same problem. Mixing a little bit of another shisha and some honey in seemed to help quite a bit.

Old AF= new AF= sorry dude i have over 2.5 kilos of new af and it all sucks the only thing i had any luck at all with was the peach. I would suggest venturing out in to other tobaccos and just blend your af in till its gone.

I've noticed I get a bit of a tickle if I use too many holes or overpack it.

Just load the bowl with a light sprinkle and don't perforate the hell out of your foil and you should be fine.
