Default Whats wrong, could use some advice

ok, so i set up my modern hookah, just a regular mod bowl, and using to exotica coals, i was 15 min in, and then all of a sudden, i would take a hit ( like 1 second) and i can pull no longer then that, it starts to hurt, and if i go longer i cough, i'm pretty sure its my shitty hookah, but it could be the way i packed the bowl. i don't know if i put to much in the bowl, its AF bye the way, i know i probally burned it a little, but i tell ya, it sucked only smoking for 15 min until i couldn't even take a pull without it killing me. any advise is welcomed

Mod bowls are pretty small, 2 pieces of an Exotica stick might be too much for it.

Exoticas are variable based on how small you break them up. Please describe how much coal you are actually using.

It sounds like you are over heating your bowl and/or over packing. Make sure that your foil remains tight, start with a small amount of coal and move on to more if necessary, do not have the tobacco and foil touching and pack the bowl lighter and fluffier.

well the exotica sticks are 3 cubes per stick, so i use 2 of them, i was thinking, ya maybe i should just use 1 cude instead of 2, cause the bowl is pretty small, well i make another bowl i will see how it goes

Yea, that's too much. I usually cut my Exoticas into 4 pieces and just use 2 of them!

Also, try the overpacking method, it works wonders! I used to have the same problem you do, but not with the overpacking method.

Ya, two thirds on a small modern is way too much. See how the smaller amount treats you. Frankly the smaller you cut the pieces the easier it is to control the heat.
