Default Coals to buy!

So, i need to add coals to my first order.....which should it be. Quick light or natural? I do like quick lights because they are so effortless to use. What are pro's and cons, and which brand do you suggest of each type? Thanks again guys!

The coconara's are the best bet for the buck, yeah.

But if you want some quicklights, I like 40mm Three Kings.
You can break 'em up easily, and they don't smell that bad at all.

Also... The advantages of naturals or cocos in this case, they arent really hard to light, and they last a while, and they are all natural... Quicklights usually make a mess, smell bad which can effect the shisha. Cocos last a lot longer in my opinion. But both of them are excellent.

For naturals Coconara or Exotica .. for quicklights, I am liking Starlights.

90% of my coal use is naturals. I only use quicklights when I have no option to use naturals.

yep Coconara Naturals are the best in my experience. I use a $10 walgreens burner and lite them outside works great. The Coconaras last a long time with little ash.

Yeah they are easy .. I agree!

You asked for opinions and as a self-proclaimed hookah connoisseur .. I would rather take the time and make the effort to use some quality naturals for an overall better hookah setup, in my opinion.

I still occasionally use quicklights though .. and think everyone should have some of both on hand (naturals and quicklights) because you never know when you will need one or the other!?

Hope that helps .. Cheers!

Quick lights always seem to play with the flavors. They are convenient. They usually burn from the center of the bowl which seems to shorten the lifespan of a bowl. From my experience even with a beefy torch lighter you end up waiting just as long to get the heat to the shisha because the coal takes a bit to completely ember. If you don't have access to a single coil burner or no place to run one, this might be your best solution. I use these on the hookahs I take to parties, but the difference is always noticeable.

Lemon wood coals provide good heat and doesn't change the flavor, but they seem to burn and ash pretty quickly. They are messy, and take quite a bit of effort to get into your desired size/shape. They are usually more safe than coconaras because they wont burn your shisha as easily.

Coconara coals seem to last much much longer than any wood coals I've used. the ash is minimal. Only problem is that they have a tendency to spark when you move them around or blow on them (I smoke outside, so it might be different walking around with one inside). They come in squares which is convenient for consistently placing them across from each other on a bowl. You can split them fairly easily and cleanly with a hammer and screwdriver, but the normal size should work well on any light shisha like SB. I don't use these on Tangiers because they always seem to burn much too hot.

I haven't tried brands like Exotica or any of those. I've had the best luck with AF for wood coal, Coconara for coconut coals, the AF Coconut seemed to spark vigorously for me, and the coconaras always seemed to be much easier to manage.

I am currently a fan of Exotica coals. Great stuff. I have not had coconara in a very long time and I can't really remember how they treated me. The price pus me off. Even with the discounts.

i can't stand quicklights anymore, they taste like shit and give me headaches even when they are ashed over.

i'll take coconaras over any coal anyday. CH coals are good too, but i'd rather spend more money on cocos. they last forever, no taste, and they give off less then like 5% ash.

i paid $50.00 shipped for 4 boxes which is a great deal with that coupon in the vendor discount section.

If you are Exotica's only, the best place to get them ive found for the price is on ebay there is a company that sells them for 11.99 shipped. If you are already buying stuff from hookahstore then prolly better to go with them for the price.Good thing about exotica fingers is they are pre scored
