Default Who prefers Non Washable Hoses?

I recently well about a month ago switched all my hoses to KM hoses, i know they aint washable so i designated certain hoses to certain flavours, like a DA hose, one for citrus flavours one for melons ect etc, and straight away i noticed all the shishas had more flavour to them, for some reason i didnt get the same intense flavour with the narbish/nammour/razan.

And a month down the line the shisha taste even better as the ghosting aint evident, i sugget trying out the non washable hoses, i know the washable ones are good but i feel the none washable ones are better espically if you assign flavours to certain hoses

What are your thoughts on them?

I agree I have a few KM hoses one for mint and one for Apple, and I do think after a few sessions the flavor becomes even better. But that being said if I smoke say nakhla orange, and then starbuzz citrus mist I do feal that the citrus mist becomes a bit watered down. I think with different flavors you dont want to do this because the flavor becomes muddled after to many different flavors.

Ive been to hookah cafes in Lebanon and Jordan where they use the same hose for the same flavor and the taste always seem to be alot better than when i make my own and smoke out my razan which has had like more than 20 flavors go through it, even if washed out.

Well back home they always just use natural charcoal the long rod types that they just chop so smaller pieces once hot enough and those coals are the best, they take the longest to heat up sometimes but all you get is the taste of the tobacco

Yup have 2 at home, the EX-L ones right?

Thats a very good hose as well, but its not aesthetically pleasing as a KM leather hose, but smokes better then the razan/nammour

I have a Desi Murli hose which I love dearly as well as an Esk apple hose. The Desi Murli has a wonderful flavor built up after the past summer's worth of DM and the Esk apple hose is just starting out so I'm waiting to see how this one turns out. Cinnamon or Cardamom is going to be my next project I think.

After reading this thread I decided to use my KM hose and have noticed a difference in flavor as well...No clue why, but it is a noticeable difference...I still prefer my washable Razan/Narbish, but I think I will use my KM hose a little more now...

I've been a champion of smaller gauge nonwashable hoses for ages now. I have several dedicated to different flavor styles. I've had both razan and nammor and they're ok. I gave my nammor to a friend and still have the razan but rarely use it.

The flavour will be better if you really want to buy 5-10 different hoses.
The main concern for me is that having non washable hoses is disgusting unless you replace them regularly.

I've only tried the KM pro hose but I find it to be too wide. Are the other KM hoses different?

Has anyone tried a KM washable hose there quite small, just a little but bigger than a mya

Yh the pro hoses are massive, i have the leather hoses with removable mouth pieces so i can put my metal pieces in and the draw is restricted enough.

non-washable hoses seem to be a lo9t more artistic and whimsical. I do prefer the draw on most KM hoses too, it's just a shame that if you smoke it with one bad flavor it's ghosted in it forever. Pick one flavor per non-washable hose and stick with it. The more you smoke, the better it'll get.
