Default Al Fakher Itchy?

I have Al Fakher grape and grenadine and I just cant seem to get it to smoke right. I've tried it in a egyption bowl and funnel bowl. They both tend to give an itchy harshish feeling as they are starting up. I dont overpack the bowl at all. I follow the starbuzz rules when packing this stuff.

Help prease?!

What Hamfoot said. With AF, tighter is always better. Pack it hard, make it count!

http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18931 there are also plenty of threads about this outside of the review threads. This particular one happens to come from the front page.
