Default this is my set up, tell me how i did

this is my green pumpkin hookah. i got it for about $32.00 including shipping from eBay. i used a vortex bowl, al-fakher natural coals, al-fakher vanilla flavored shisha, and filled up the vase halfway with water and added 1 ice cube. and to light my coals i used a mapp gas torch for fast lighting. these are some of the pics, i have to post another for the video clips. please tell me how i did, good? bad? or okay.

Looks good to me. Does AF normally need that many holes?

Everything looks pretty good. How long does it take to light those nats with that torch? As far as the holes go, that looks almost exactly like my foil for every bowl I pack, regardless of brand. Bravo.

Right on, that's not bad at all. Packing looks pretty good too, similar to how I pack my vortex. Just be sure to leave some space for the holes in the spire to breathe.

I take a toothpick and run it around the spire after packing then use to toothpick to pole holes. I also don't poke hole in the center of the bowl. But that's just me. YMMV!!!

Looks good, just be sure and dry the hookah well after washing these hookahs are prone to start rusting easily.
