Default Something under that foil is excited! LOL

Has anyone else noticed the foil raising up during a session? I have this happen quite often when smoking drier shishas (Nakhla, Cleopatra, Salloum and Pharaoh's). It isn't a big deal but it makes the coal placement interesting. So does anyone elses foil pitch a tent while smoking?

Nah, I haven't had that happen to me with Nakhla. But then again, I most likely didn't notice it when it happened :P

wow, that's weird. I've never experienced this, but then again I'm always smoking super wet shisha's. Does this only happen to drier shisha's? I wonder why it actually happens, like what's the cause for it to rise up...

i used those before and i really found no difference. basically youve got nice little perfect squares of foil ready to go in an instant.

Yeah, Raiden is right... The precut foils are no different than the heavy duty foil you can get at your local supermarket. I once paid, I think it was $5, for precut circle Social Smoke foil (100 sheets or so). There really was no difference except that it feels thicker than most other foils you can buy. But, you can just get Reynolds heavy duty foil for about the same price, and you'll get a shitload more of foil that will last an eternity...

I smoke mostly drier shishas, and it happens a good bit. i also smoke juicier shishas too, but haven't noticed it with them.

id have to agree there. all of my shisha is weeeet. mainly because i have to keep it in the car and its winter, in colorado that means below zero weather most nights. so a combo of natural and probably condensation have made it that way. i dont normally do that but slight complications made it that way lol.
the only dry one i have is sb grape due to stupidity and it only happens with that, not the others

who knows. i can tell you im not all that fond on the idea of taking off the foil and heating it to see lol.
why are rainbows colorful? why when it rains it pours? it just does. lets not question it lol.

actually the only logical explanation i can come up with is that since dryer shisha has got less constricting it, it expands more or something, or releases gases or something

I've never noticed foil rising and I smoke Zaghloul regularly. I don't think that Salloum (other then the plain kind) is particularly dry as i've always bought it wetter then Nakhla. In any case, those brands are dry in the states because they tend to have mediocre packaging and they don't sell quickly. In Egypt both of those brands are wetter when you buy them although they are not as wet as a lot of American style shishas. I'd suggest using 5-8ml of glycerine per 30g of of Zaghloul or plain Salloum prior to smoking.

honestly i dont think ive ever seen Zaghloul anywhere. not even online... guess i dont look hard enough in town or online lol. probably the best way to get it is ordering it off a kinda hidden site.
pretty much in town theres only a handful of places to buy shisha, and only one sells the good stuff like Starbuzz and Tangiers.
I wish i had a job now lol, be able to buy bigger containers of my favs. dammit. guess im stuck with little 50 gram boxes of Layalina and Romman for now

Nakhla makes Zaghlol. Pretty much any vendor that sells Nakhla sells Zahglol.

I would suggest that you check out super secret hidden sites like HC and HK or anyplace that sells Nakhla if you want to find Zaghlol
