Default Nahkla issues

So i've had Nahkla (Apple, mint, and mandarin) and no matter how hard i try to get it going i cant, ive tried overpacking it, 1 layer of foil, 2 layers of foil (oh btw i use 2 coconara coals) and no matter how i try it i never seem to get a good smoke going, ill get weak flavor for about 15-20 minutes but after that its just weak smoke with no flavor, im sure there are other posts in relation to this problem but i havent been able to find them. Can someone please help me?

Use 3 coals and invest in a windcover, nakhla tolerates heat better than most other brands.

Yeah, definitely increase the heat. Nahkla is best when it's got plenty of heat, like SonofGram said, it tolerates it well.

Well its nakhla... If a better shisha smokes better, why not just smoke that instead..

I use 3 coconaras with one layer of hd foil in a vortex bowl and use my windcover as my heat management. I also overpack my Nakhla, about 35-45g per bowl.

lack of smoke = lack of heat. you need to add another coal and or buy a wind cover.

Based on this I'm assuming you are a SB/Af "swimming in glycerin loyalist"... There is nothing wrong with Nak and they are not trying to save money at all. You need to pack your bowls of Nak tighter/ more densely than you normally would. If you think it is too "dry" the Nak mizo line. If you think its too harsh then you are doing something incorrectly.
