Default What should I do about this problem?

Hey,
I was wondering about this combo bowl i bought. It came with a screen (useless imo). I have been using 2 foils and a half(2 cubes) of a diamante coal (Come in sets of 4 cubes). I usually use a safety pin to poke <40 holes in the foil. I've tried 3 different types of shisha in the bowl and every one of them burn up and get all harsh. Anyone have any suggestions for making the bowl not burn?

Thanks in advanced!

Yeah, these bowls are notorious for burning all the time. No matter what you do, it will always get too hot. IMO, try to tear of the metal top and use it as a normal bowl.

Use it for something not hookah related.


Target practice comes to mind.

Seriously. Spend a few bucks and go with a standard egyptian, phunnel or vortex. Then invest in a proper windcover. You'll be much better off.

I've got an old soldering iron with a dial, gona try to make it so i can turn up/down heat with the electric dial... gona try it this spring break. Ill update if i do it in a new thread.

PULL!

But in all seriousness, standard Egytian bowls rock.
