I think I will take off the White Peach Starbuzz and put in Fumari Peach instead. But I think I will keep the Margarita due to what I been hereing about it being a good lime flavor. Considering I put lime in just about everything, in my drinks and I even use it when I cook on the grill and such. Unless someone else has a better Lime suggestion.

As for the Al Waha.... The thing about my order is I want to spread out brand and flavors. I Have heard alot of people bashing it but the people that like it, really like it from what I can see and for 3 flavors for 7.50 I figured why not?

Fair enough. Just my own opinions, if I'm smoking the mod stuff, Fumari is my favorite.

If you like Cigars and such, you may find that traditional hookah tobacco is worthwhile to you. That said, you have to have an appreciation for natural tobacco flavors. With a little bit of preparation, Nakhla Zaghloul is a great tobacco that you might want to try.

Update... I drove to the local smoke shop today... and its closed.

SC sucks for smoke shops either the state always shuts them down or they go out of business.

The other smoke shop is an hour away and I hate to drive their to find out they don't have anything decent. I heard they suck for everything but Shisha selection when reading reviews online.. and those reviews are mixed.

Guess Ill be ordering all the stuff online.

As of right now I going to replace all the grommets, replace the BB, get new bowl and tray and try it out. I will be getting the free MYA arcylic just incase it doesnt work. Sucks I wont be able to use the Hookahpro discount.

I could wait for this weekend and drive up to Charlotte NC its about a hour and half away and their smoke shops are the best ive ever seen... But I guess I am only comparing the ones in Atlanta, Columbia, and the one I went to in Detroit.

I am excited as hell. I noticed Sahara smoke was offering free shipping so I check it out... Once i realized they let stack a couple other offers on top of that, it was a no brainer. So I got the normal 15% HP Discount, Free Shipping, plus a free 25 dollar hookah with all that. So I got 2 small on the cheaper side hookahs coming to me for would I would have just got one acrylic off of Hookah-Shisha.com for pretty much the same price. I am also going to place the an order for the rest of the stuff I couldn't get off Saraha smoke with Hookah-Shisha which puts me at still my 150 dollar mark with me using the HP discount on that site.

Thanks I was worried... because I did it quickly due to it was already 12:30am when I place the order but I guess they going off West Coast Time.... I realized now I order 2 50Gs of 7 spice which was an accident. But all the good reviews about it that might be a good thing.

I just placed my second order.... I am not so impressed with it considering I feel like I didnt get much as compared to the Sahara smoke order.

I don't think am going to be able to sleep until they get here.....Guess Ill just have to work on cleaning up this old stem and base till then. I hope they arrive on the same day but I doubt it. The Hookah-Shisha is gonna get here first due to UPS and it being in texas.... which is going to suck because the grommet and coals I need to at least smoke are going to be in the saharasmoke.com order which is coming from Cali by USPS.

BTW I know this technically should be the order forum... but I figured id just keep it to one thread so I could keep track of it and let y'all know my progress.

First hard lesson in Hookah I have learned today....
Dont place your stem on the floor, I was working on taking that grommet off today in my room and had the stem on the floor. I left it there.

Just now I got the shower and went in there... and sometime today I steped on the down stem and bent the hell out of it. When I went to straighten it....... I BROKE MY DOWN STEM PRETTY MUCH IN HALF!!!! OMFG

Am I screwed? or can i repair this some magic way? I think I just put this hookah out of commission, which pisses me off I just ordered the stuff to make it usable and was trying to fix it up.

My camera battery is charging now but ill send out some pics. Damnit I cant believe I broke it.

Saw off the bent part and pick up a copper pipe (at any hardware/plumbing supply store) that has a diameter slightly larger than your downstem (essentially sleeve it on) and attach it with some jb weld, or actually weld it if you have the means.

Do you know anyone who is a plumber?

It like a 15 minute job.

Try these guys

Metal Plating Co‎
603 North 12th Street, West Columbia, SC 29169-6448
(803) 796-1320‎

Tell them you just want the pipe fixed and tell hem how much you are willing to spend.

If they start asking too many questions, just tell them you want it repaired to sell it. People are funny like that.

Good luck.

Sucks I did this dumb move.....

Thanks that Youtube Video helped... Looks Like this weekend I am going to have to hit up the Hardware store. The only thing I might find hard to get access to is the butane torch, but I been meaning to buy one of those for a while, seems I got 2 or 3 other reasons for owning one.

I haven't had luck with JB weld in the past so not sure if I want to try that.

BTW how hot can I expect the downstem to get? I mean thats alot of added soldering with lead and the additional flux. Its still going to be ok to smoke out of ?

I am curious what type of weld the hookah makers use.

Thanks for both responses.... I might try to capture what I end up doing on camera when I finally get around to fixing this.

It won't warm up at all. Not even close.

The stem is cool to the touch about three inches below the bowl, the downstem will be fine.

Once soldered together just give it a good cleaning and run some hot water through it, it'll be safe, after all it's used for running water in the household.

Remember to keep the two pieces straight or you will have a crooked stem.

Good luck.

Cut the copper tube with a hacksaw just above the break then clean the short stem piece well with fine water paper take the cut off piece to a hardware store and get a copper pipe just big enough to fit tightly over it also get solid plumbers solder and flux (acid flux) lighly coat the cut section abut 10 mm with flux slide the new piece off stem over the cut section that distance heat with a blowtorch and apply solderclean the joint and you should be good to go.

Yeah, the stem is salvagable. I hope you can save it, but if you can't or don't want to. I am sure you can find someone willing to take it off your hands.

Well my hookah shipment came in from Sahara and I just got done with 2 smoke sessions.

Everything came in good shape and good quality... I will probably do a review on Sahara tomorrow... if I get a chance, right now people are trying to find a couch to sleep on in my living room.

I tried the Margarita Hookah-Hookah first... UGH bad stuff. At first it was ok to deal with, but people smoking it couldn't tell what it even tasted like, then I burned it which made it unsmokeable. Lesson learned on how to pack it in the bowl, I know I burned it because it was stuck the foil when I through it in the trash.

Next I went to the Blueberry... This was actually decent, it wasn't as pleasant as I was hoping for it. But Me and my friends smoked for pretty an hour and a half am guessing. Gave me a little head buzz for a little bit, was nice and exactly what I was wanting. The Blueberry was very very mellow.

One thing I did was pretty much destroy my bowl grommet. I really don't know how I did it but it has melted in half. I think it happened because I put the coals in the ash tray next to it but am not sure if that's the reason.

Am ready now for the Nakla, Fumari, and AF order to come in.
