Default How To Make A Draw More Restricted

I know usual people ask on how to make a draw less restricted, but i have been smoking more and more with a smaller disposable hose, where the draw is more restricted, and i feel i get more taste and thicker clouds out of it.

I usually use a KM and a tangiers phunnel or a egyptian bowl, and i would like to know is they any other way i can restrict the air flow, while using a nammour/razan hose with my KM or is using a smaller hose the only way?

I wanna get a another AF Hookah soon, so that will solve my problems but until then is they anything i can do?

Default Re: How To Make A Draw More Restricted

I too prefer a slightly restricted draw. A couple things I've done are 1) change the water level. A higher water level can restrict the draw slightly. 2) Poke smaller and/or fewer holes in the foil. I find that if the hole pattern is such that the coals cover the majority of the holes, it can greatly restrict the draw. I've noticed the draw can change as I move the coals around and cover/uncover the holes.

Hope this helps!

Pack tobacco tighter, poke less holes and make the pipe narrower with tin foil. . in the part that goes in the water. Use a pencil or a pen and wrap foil tightly around teh pipe and part of the pencil .. then yank the pencil out and smoke. Or buy hookah filters. the kind that fit into your mouthpiece.

Hmmm..smaller holes seem to hold more heat. I don't think it will burn quicker, but you may have to adjust your heat management accordingly.

Will play around with the holes amd heat next time i smoke.

Hopefully i can figure out a way of making the downstem smaller so its restricts it, and i dont have to play around with how i pack a bowl and heat

It's the opposite actually. Larger/more holes allow for more heat transfer.

I would avoid messing around with your hookah and bowl setups if all you want to do is restrict flow. The only thing I would do is add a diffuser if you haven't already. Water level doesn't make much of a difference on draw.

I'd recommend concentrating more on the hose so you don't affect how your hookah smokes as much, more so the draw only. Try using something that reduces the hole size of the mouth tip, like a male plastic tip or a piece of electrical tape over the hose tip end with a smaller hole poked in it.

Just wrap some foil around the part of the stem thatgoes into the water. Or get a HEBA Diffuser - or make one

Allready added a diffusor makes a tiny difference not much, like the water level, but every little helps.

I like the idea off the hose and electrical tape, the thing i noticed is i get more flavour with the smaller gadge hoses and thicker smoke, same went for when i had my AF hookah which had a slightly more restricted draw.

And when i use the razan the flavour is not as concentrated, and is faint, maybe i need to clean my hoses, but thats what i feel

I was thinking about the foil, allready have a diffusor didnt make a massive difference, apart from making it quieter

my af has just as wide of a draw as my km, so i just use a smaller gauged hose, its the best method for a tighter draaw i feel, the other stuff will just screw around with heat management tricks that work for you.

I think it has more to do with packing technique. I pack a vortex and egyptian bowl differently on my Mya than I do if I use them on my wider draw stems. I always pack phunnels the same though and I don't like using them on the Mya because I feel it's a waste. If I do I use a different hole pattern though.

I always recommend experimenting to find out what works for you. It's good to revisit things every now and then because you may surprise yourself with things you've overlooked or by what you've just been doing out of habit.

Just less holes always seems to make a stronger pull for me. Not that I do it on purpose, sometimes I'm lazy and don't feel like spending any more seconds on poking. But I can tell the difference.

switch from the nammors/razan to X-L hoses from Shisha King (you can buy them from hookah shop, the shisha shop or hookah royal)... for me it makes a huge difference, nammors/razan are what killed my flavours and smoke thickness. The X-L hoses are perfect sized for me (X-L = Extra Long i think)

I don't see how quick lights would make a more restricted draw, or why someone would want to use them anyway. But the AF healthy hoses are really nice for what they are.

Just try to use a mouthtip It restricts the airflow of the razan hoses.

Found a simple solution and should work, put foil on top of the stem, and poke little holes init, should restrict the airflow
