Default help with my km

well i just got a new red pair 31 inch km, with a vortex bowl and some black snow 360 pink lemonade.if dont know what 360 is, its basicly a starbuzz. Id like to know what would be the perfect set up , how to pack it and all. i was smoking out of it yesterday and realised i get same pull and smoke out of my havana hookah. a chinese rig. After hearing all this hyp about kms im quite disapointed that it basicly preforms the same as my chinese,ill admit it purges better but other then that feels the same. im using narbish v3 on my km. and a razan on my chinese

help would be aprecated

OOOOOOOOOOH NO.........Now you've gone and done it.
Anything pulling as good as a KM? And Chinese at that?

BLASPHEMEMER!!!!!


On a serious note, it's not impossible for a Chinese rig to pull as easily as a KM. Check the diameter of the downstem and hoseports on both. Are they the same size? Is everything sealing properly? Especially on the Havanna? You shouldn't notice a difference between hoses, but I'd switch them just to compare. Are you getting the same amount of smoke from both setups?

Like the other guys said, there is no way that your Km is pulling the same as a Chinese p.o.s. rig. Sounds like you packed the bowl incorrectly and/or added too much water to the base. The Km and the V3 narbish both have huge gages and make pulls almost effortless. The rig is not the problem.

360 is pretty much the same thing as Starbuzz (meduim cut, overly dyed & drippy, fruity party flavors).

To pack it well in a vortex try putting a little bit in the bottom then firmly pressing it down, then sprinkle more tobacco on top- very very gently pat it down, make sure the holes in the spire are not blocked, add foil, pole holes, add coals, enjoy. If it is not producing enough smoke then add more coals.


I hope this was of some help.

On a side note, where did you find your 360 tobacco? I'm running low and need to restock.

i can fit the havana steam in the km one,so km wins their.
km vase is better.
hoses id have to be the same
and im using clay bowls on both . just ot be fair cause i only have one vortex,
i was not getting anything much different,
the problem might be that the steam does not fit to tightly in the steam.the hose makes the steam tip to one side a bit. not to point that tip the hookah over. just couple degres over

There could possible be an air leak. Take the bowl off, cover the hole with your finger. Now try sucking/blowing...If you can feel/see air escaping from somewhere there is a leak and this could be part of your problem.


The stem on the km fits really really tight. You need to wet the grommet and wiggle it on there. If the fitting is too loose, add electrical tape.
