Default AF Medium Solid Help

Hey guys, I just picked up a used AF Medium Solid and tested it out for the first time tonight. I'm sure I will figure things out through trial and error but it's discouraging since I feel like I'm newb with my AF when my KM smokes like a beast. My session included the egyptian bowl which comes with the hookah, 3 coco nara's, nammor hose, heba diffuser, SB pina colada.

At first I felt like there was too little water the first time around so I added some more, about 1.5 inches above the stem and the diffuser. It just felt like I was getting thinner smoke than usual and the water level seemed to just not be right. I think I would be more confidant using my vortex next time, but I was wondering if any of you AF owners out there had the water level down to an exact science? Also, how are you using/placing the large heba diffuser on this piece?

My last inquiry is, everyone including vendors claim this hookah to be a 30" hookah, but it measures at least 3 inches smaller than my 28" KM...

Jake see what happens when you put Syrians and Egyptians in the same closet and throw SB at them you have a fight so now pack that Hookah in a nice sturdy box and send it to me I will take good care of it

1" above the down stem should be good for the water level have you checked for leaks and check the ports for obstructions. next check the hole pattern on the foil try and get some holes through the tobacco to line up with the holes in the bowl. Lose the diffuser for now and just setup the hookah as normal and first get it smoking to your satisfaction one you got that right then add the diffuser. Check the purge as well the ball bearing can be stuck open or missing.

In reply to glost response i agree 1 inch is perfect and what he said about the holes is true, but i will add once the foil is in place flip the bowl upside down and go thru the neck up thru the shisha and tin foil.

Hmmm, now this is certainly interesting. I used to get beastly clouds with that thing smoking whatever I wanted. The water line on the downstem indicates where I would fill it to, so you could use that for reference. The grommet that came with it may or may not be making a great seal with that bowl. I wouldn't know for sure, because I never used that bowl with that grommet. However, my Vortex, Funnel and other Egyptian bowls fit perfectly. Check the seal with the bowl on and see how that goes.

Will fire it up tonight sans diffuser. Ever since I got back from philly my smoking experience has gone down... Maybe it's this new batch of pina colada cause I just smoked it out of my KM and was an epic fail.

When we use our AF we fill the water to just the bottom of the crown, perfect water

Happy to report that I had a great session with the water at the recommended level minus diffuser. SB Peaches & Cream got along with the AF Solid. Sorry glostersa!

Heba diffusers are worthless crap. I would use a different bowl for starbuzz, like your vortex.
