Default SS Mobster Help...

I was really excited to get the shipment today and it smelled EXCELLENT! but now i have it loaded in my vortex bowl and i got hardly ANYTHING as far as taste, I have 3 coco-nara coals on the bowl. I packed it a little more than i do with starbuzz. any pointers?

idk what it is, but all the social smoke i have tried so far has been SERIOUSLY lacking in flavor. if u have ice in the water try taking that out. the general consensus is that ice decreases flavor but gives bigger clouds. also maybe less heat?

I could taste it Only thing I am thinking is you have too much heat or it's touching the foil. I also haven't tried it in vortex though only an Egyptian clay bowl. I thought the flavor could be stronger but you could def. taste it. so I'm guessing that you are having another issue

i use a small tangiers phunnel bowl and i go with a fairly dense pack. I load it up and pack it down so it's moderately tight, nothing too crazy though. Works well for me. No harshness and kick you in the face flavor. Oh and i either use two qls with a windcover or 3 nats.

I packed it pretty fluffy...I got about 5 bowls out of 100g if that tells you anything. I got an intense amount of taste and smoke from it with 2 coals on top. Just make sure you pack it on the sides more and keep the shisha away from the holes in the spire. You should be having a great smoke with SS.

we tried 2 different bowls last night and no dice. I'm gonna try again and use less tobacco, see if it comes out better. I REALLY hope it does other wise I will be EXTREMELY disappointed.

I packed it loose and used two coconaras on a vortex bowl. It smoked fine i just wasn't a big fan of the flavor.

same here, packed it loose with a light pack down at the end so it wouldn't touch the foil. 3 CH naturals then down to 2 once it heated up. great session. I'm actually drinking a monster now, wishing had some more mobster to smoke.

thanks for the help guys. i tried it again and got more flavor out of it, but its still not "this stuff is awesome 10/10" like i have seen people say. I also tried the lemon and set the bowl up well and THAT was in your face flavor. If the mobster was to smoke like the lemon the rating would be through the roof. I'm thinking maybe my batch of mobster wasn't the greatest

Perhaps you got a bad batch, or perhaps your taste buds just aren't receptive to that particular range of flavor. Different people taste things differently, right?

Try making a homemade mouthtip for your hose and see if that increases the flavor. I've noticed that Coco Nara's tips spread the smoke equally over the tongue, giving weak flavors more presence.

But those are expensive, so you might want to experiment with shutting your lips tight around the hose to give it some restriction and sticking your tongue close to the mouth piece while you inhale smoke.
