Default Got my first hookah

I got my first hookah Monday,it's an early annivercery present. I got it from a local Middle Eastern grocery store,they also have about 8 different kinds of Naklha 250g for only $5 each. I'm not an expert but the build quality seems fairly good for the price I paid,no leaks or bad welds any where. The only problems I've had is the bowl gormet seem really cheap, it seals but not very well and I am also missing the tongs but I'm sure the shop will fix everything when I go back for more Naklha.

Electrical tape is a good quick fix until you can get a new grommet. Even a wet paper towel does the trick.

Hey pal, congrats on your first hookah! Definitely post some pics when you have the chance.


Also in the future I recommend you get natural coals, or at least better quick lighting coals. Three Kings isn't very good for hookah.

I find 3 Kings QL to be the second best quick lite on the market, behind ******* Hookah QL's. They light the fastest, very very very tiny taste, not a bad smell, coal lasts about 30-35 minutes, easy to ash, etc.

We have never really had any problems with 3 Kings coals. The only bad batch we have ever smoked with them is when we had them with Al Fakher Berry. It seemed like there was always harsh smoke and a nasty coal taste. I guess it is all a matter of personal preference but I would recommend 3 Kings if naturals are not available or just not an option
