Thanks everyone, patel I'm using al fakher coal from shisha buzz and al fakher lemon and mint. While I hate lemon there should atleast be a lot of smoke

Beautiful rig Omar. I would have personalized it also. Very nice idea.

pack the AF pretty tight and use big sized holes all the way down, use 3 coals on the edge and a windcover before you take you first drag, and when the bowl is warm, take it off, and start smoking

It just seems the al fakher coals are pretty shitty :/ they like the finger coals I used to use. And the flavour apple lemon mint. Well it's not nice. Lemon gets unbelievably harsh and then like there's not a lot of smoke either. Bleh I've spent a lot of money and just seems I should have purchased the phunnel

i always get great smoke from AF in a vortex and i have used the AF coals without a problem. i sprinkle it in to the top of the spire then push it down a bit. layer of thick foil and lots of small holes. the foil defo makes a difference. i was using cheap foil and AF got unbelievably harsh. try using two layers of foil.

Do you have to push it down a lot? Cause I could not fit 25 grams without pushing it down a lot and do you put flavour below the holes? I'm going to try again with Lemmon apple hoping I get a good shisha <_< i've wasted 6 coals trying haha

also my km don't stand straight and the vibration causes coals to move. >_<

alos use just 2 coals. give it a slight pat down not too much.
now coals moving try wrapping electrical tape to the grommet to make it extra tight.

Is there a reason you are trying to packs 25 grams into the vortex? It should be able to take it but there is no set number of grams that you have to use to have it smoke well.

Mix up the tobacco, let it sit in the bowl at about the same density that it has after stirring, packed under the edge of the bowl, don't push the foil down and make sure that the foil is tight. Poke the holes and make sure it's tight again. Only use two coals and see how that treats you.

bowls always say they hold X but rarely is that a real world estimate (other than when you pack tangiers the "correct" way and waste 90% of the tobacco)

with a standard egyptian bowl i got about 30+ bowls from a 250g pack of nakhla, so its really 8-10 grams tops in a bowl that holds "15-25"

Also because of the different levels of wetness the same volume of tobacco will be a different weight. Tobacco is packed and measured by weight.

thanks, i forgot to put that part in, to much ADD


of course there is also different packing methods too. if you over pack like some people have been doing with nakhla (many lounges supposedly do it too), you end up using like 2-4 times the normal amount

Default Re: Omg I bought a KM custom made for 40 pounds

yeh i retried it this time and i packed it down, at first i used 3 al fakher coals, then when they died i used 2, i packed it fairly down, but the flavour wasnt all that =/ ive smoked same flavour in a egyptian bowl and i can tell you it tasted so much better. however the flavour did get stronger after around 20 minutes, but the bowl was super hot... I just said okay =/ lets carry it on, i smoked strawberry apple and mint. Not my favourite but its pretty aite.. i dono it just feels that something wasnt doing it :S i cudnt get the usual taste to it. Maybe cause im used to the slight burned taste of shisha. Ohwell it wasnt too bad.

I might buy another KM now lol can some help me to find what version this is, cause ive seen stuff similiar to it but not the exact type.

AHAHHA ********** are selling the same shisha pipe as me, non customised for 139.99 WOW thats expensive _

http://www.**********.com/product.sc...0&categoryId=8 heres the link =/ the tray bowl is not the same, the glass bowl is not the same, mine has pharoas on it and is not got frosted colour over it. the pipe also has our name and is custom to the shisha pipe.

This is quite sad that you lot pay such big prices... may i ask why? when i was able to buy one for literally 70$ =/ nearly half the price of what usa people are buying.

and patel, if you said u saw this over 2 years ago, that means my shisha and the one at ********** is not 2010 series, so that means that there just selling old shishas. Which im sure isnt true as ********** seems like a very good supplier.

The version before the one you got didnt have the gold etching on it, but had a ice chamber, otherwsie it was the same, il link a youtube review i saw a while back, and was posted at least a year ago.

It takes a few months to get shishas into the US, my solid brass one i got back in october, and ********** only got them in now, who knows how long they were out in egypt, its what the vendors like they bring in

you paied $70.00
one a hookah has been shipped 2 the main supplier in the US and then bought by the vendor the price has increased. What vendors charge is fair everyone has to make a living. you were very luck to be able to get something from egypt. however one you have got a flight to egypt and brought the hookah back it works out to be the same price as what it is in the US. also shipping from egypt is like $70.00
Patel also said he saw something similar not the same. there was also a similar model in the UK for a while.

Arr thats actually quite true. However im kind of lucky, cause i never pay for any shipping, ticket prices.. or what ever. i get the products like i picked them up my self from the country.

If i was allowed to get much more id purchase the lot however the problem then is, i have not got customs on my flavour so id probally get arrested and second of all id have to purchase a shit load of packaging material to send these hookahs as they are pretty massive

That is one awesome looking hookah. I especially like the tray. I'm sorry to hear you don't enjoy the vortex bowl. To be honest, I don't like mine much either. Get a funnel if you want a fancier bowl. They're much nicer IMO.
