Default lucid tang packing?

Do you have to pack it like the traditional way or any other way that works?

Same as any other tobacco I have used. I expected a challenge from it my first time but being lucid its pretty much just starbuzz without the coloring.

There's a certain amount of truth to that. I find for best results it should be "packed" a little tighter then other tobaccos. A "dense" pack seems to work best. How dense to make it is something you need to experiment with.

I pack it in pretty tight, but that's only so I can smoke the whole bowl for about 2 hours or more. I ALWAYS poke holes all the way down to the bottom of the bowl, and always use only 2 coals.

Pretty much the same for me except if I'm using a real small bowl, I'll only use 1 coal cut in half with a foil windcover. If I'm using a phunnel I'll start with 3 coals and drop 1 when things get going nice.

Interesting, what i have found is that 2 coals with a tight pack a good amount of toothpick sized holes starts the session in about 20 seconds (at large clouds and full flavor) and goes at least 2 hours with 2 sets of 2 coals, sometimes adding 1 more.

Hmmm...maybe I should try poking holes all the way to the bottom. I normally only poke a few all the way down, not all of them. Do you pack all the way to the top of the bowl? I tend to underpack Tangier's a bit which is maybe why it doesn't heat up as fast for me?

That is the exact reason, but if you are not using a phunnel that may or may not affect the session quality, who knows until you try!

of course, you use more shisha, but you get a much longer session - so it's just a trade off either way of course. I tend to smoke with people who can smoke for hours on end, including myself, so I have found that the heavy pack is perfect for us.

lucid can be packed normally, however as stated above i think its better with a slightly denser pack.

I use a tighter pack than usual tobacco but use the same method of hole poking and foil. I use a safety pin for holes (a lot of holes) and 2 layers of foil (HD or what ever I have).

You can pack it anyway, the tighter you pack it the longer it will last. If you're looking for a quick session, pack it loosely

Lucid smokes best when packed like Noir.
