Default Crappy TONGS!

So prob. 9/10 reviews i watch on hookahs, someone says they get crappy, cheap tongs, which are free if you dont remember. so with that said, since yes my tongs i got with my cheap hookah are yes crappy, i found these nice tongs for only 3bucks on amazon. im sure your local grocery store has something like this also. im just saying.

I used some cheap tongues the other day, that i was not used to, and burned my first rug inside because of them. My bad for not using the cheap ones I got used to... The pic from Amazon looks like the tongues used for salads? Not a bad idea, but if I recall, they are rather large? Let us know if you try them out?

Harder than hell to hold onto the coals with those.

I use something like this:

The square "hole" on the ends is big enough to fit a coconara inside, makes it easy to push them around on the foil.

The ones i picked out on amazon are only 9 1/2 inches long. and for 3 bucks you cant go wrong. good to see other people use something other than the ones that came with the hookah, cheap cheap.

good luck trying to hold your coals with that, it seems like a hookah catastrophe waiting to happen. last thing you need is to drop a lit coal, i just deal with the crappy tongs atleast they work. but again let us know how it goes, could be interesting.

This is what I use, they're inexpensive and are made from a thicker metal, out of 3 or 4 random kind of tongs I have, I only use these:

Target and Walmart have stainless steel tongs. I just picked up a set (one short and one long) for 4 bucks. Very happy

i don't know what tongs you guys consider to be 'crappy'.. but i have a set of tongs, i'm guessing would be considered crappy.. its made from some lightweight metal which i could probably bend without that much effort.. but if they were all i had i wouldn't really mind.. they work just fine.. course i have better, but i still find uses for the little guy..

i'm staring at it now, like if i say something to harsh about it, it will cut me in my sleep.

Those tongs you are looking at bro, those are huge. Your coals will slip in between the two sides. Trust me. If that doesn't happen, you will crush the coal all over yourself. I own a pair I use for cooking and it's not pretty AT ALL!

target has some nice ice tongs for like 9 bucks. have sharp teeth on them to help grab the coals. these seem too smooth to hold onto coals.
