Default Not getting smoke from Naklha Mizo line

I bought 250g of Mizo Guava (great flavor) but I'm having one problem. I'm not getting any smoke from it.

I taste the guava, and I can do a session, but the smoke produced is barely nothing. I know some people are going to say "who cares about smoke as long as the flavor is there" but sometimes the smoke is nice. Should I be packing down tightly? I'm using a vortex with 3 CH QL on my KM. I've been packing somewhat loosely. Thanks

It sounds like a leak for sure. Check your hookah!

While its probably is a leak of some kind i like to pack mizo a bit tighter and use whatever im making my holes with to drill down with and help the airflow.

Try the overpacking method. I had the same problem with my Mizo Grape and overpacking helped!

personally i wouldnt use an overpack with mizo cause of how wet it is (it seems from my experiences dryer tobaccos work better with the over pack) and while its a nice treat to overpack it really uses a crap load of tobacco.

i would for sure check for leaks, i had the same issues using a mod bowl and my mya mini, the mod grommet was fine but the bowl wasnt able to get tight enough on it cause the tray is so high so i had to make a little thing out of wire bent up and down to push the grommet up a bit farther to give a tighter seal and that gave me big results.

i usually pack pretty lose and leave a decent space, probably more than what is normally suggest because i found the heat is able to give a mroe even heat and i get less harshness. i think i leave about 3/16-1/8th inch of a gap in my egyptian bowls. i use 3 CH nats put al the way to the edge but not hanging off and put the wind cover on for about 5-10 mins while it warms up and have been not pulling for a few mins lately and it warms it up well. then i dont usually flip my coals but i move them still and it gives heat with out giving too much

i would check the hookah for leaks just to be safe and if its air tight then i would say pack it a little tighter there is some videos on here of packing methods and i would try some of them

thats a shame the mizo guava is a very good flavor.. What i usualy do is pack it very loose and then make sure the holes go down the bottom of the bowl for optimal air flow. I usually use 2 quarter sizes of exoticas on my 24'' KM and i get some thick clouds and i love me the Mizo line especially peach.
