Default what causes the scratchy throat on exhale?

There are sometimes where I pack a bowl as I always do and upon smoking it there is a distinct scratchy feeling in the throat only on exhale. Trouble is, I can't quite figure out what causes it. The bowl is being set up the same as always which usually works works perfectly.

Does anyone know what actually causes this?

First off, the bowl might be burning, so use less heat.
Other than that, Af sometimes has a tendency to be a bit er 'scratchy'. But a feeling you get used to.
But if your not smoke Af, Just keep an eye on your heat managment and hopefully that will get rid of your scratchy sessions.

Most recently, AF. But I've gotten it on Nakhla also.

What coals do you use? I sometimes get 'scratchy" sessions from generic QL's but thats probably why i switched to Exoticas hahah.

No, I use Coconaras. After I switched to natural coals I can't use the quicklights anymore cause that's all I can taste!

Good idea haha.
Other than the Af, and since you still get it with Nakhla, clean your rig real nice like.
And keep an eye on your heat management and hopefully all will go well.

I noticed it a lot of AF, but not so much with Nakhla. Some AF Flavors for me had no scratchy feeling one of those IIRC was Golden Strawberry.

I get scratchy throat on AF too, but I can't speak to Nakhla - I've never tried it. Should be getting some soon though!

check your hoses. make sure they get blown out after every smoke. loose particles like to get caught inside.

in my opinion a clean hookah and not too much coals should do the trick.
Try using cold water & ice, should make the smoke smoother

I know exactly what you mean.
I've had this problem with Nakhla and I actually solved it just 2 days ago.

Do you pack your tobacco under the rim so it doesn't touch the foil?

If yes, then try to pack the tobacco so that it does touch the foil and poke only a coupl big holes in it. I use 2 quarters of Exoticas and there is no scratching at all anymore.

If you wanna know more, send me a PM or just write me on here or something...

1st - maybe overheat
2nd - AF from '08 was crap
3rd - do not overpack the bowl (I mean do not allow tobacco touching the foil - leave about 0,5cm distance between foil and shisha)
That should resolve the problem ^^

I find that my bowl gets stained to a dark black color, and progressively as it gets darker and darker, I get that scratchy throat on exhale, then when I replace the bowl with a new one every month or so, it goes away.

I got the scratchy throat thing from AF when i smoked it. I also get it from starbuzz when the bowl is close to bieng done. It kinda helps tell me when to change out the bowl. For starbuzz anyway.. lol.

Naklah hasnt done this to me yet.

Better idea scrub the bowl clean you are burning burned on molasses/Honey I use the soft steelwool to scrub the burned on black off the bowl or soak the bowl or boil the bowl.

Secondly try this it works http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15875 and definitely no scratchy in the throat. I pack a bowl a lot of times that the tobacco touch the foil and have not had burning problems with Nakhla. AF on the other hand I don't like.

let the coals sit on the bowl for 4-5 mins with a wind cover so the bowl and tobacco heats up. then try it out.
