Default What do YOU! want to see in video reviews?

Hello HookahPro community!
Well recently I have decided in going into the whole video review world and I wanted to know everyones opinions on what they really want to see in video reviews. Now, I know im not an active member of HookahPro, but I promise you I have been smoking hookah for quite awhile and have tried a wide range of hookah products. Not saying im perfect or necessarily good, but at least I have somewhat of a knowledge of hookah. Which Im pretty sure everyone here also has. But anyway back to the point, what do all of you (the hookahpro community) want to see in video reviews? Many people mention cut, taste, smoke, smokability, preparation, heat management, temperature of base, temperature of smoke, smoke density, ease of storing. Stuff like that. What is your opinion of lets say... the top 3 things you want to know when watching a video review. Happy Smoking everyone
-Kev

Honestly, I tire of a lot of the time-wasting elements of some reviews. Don't bother holding the container up to the camera, we can't tell what it looks like anyways. Don't stick your nose in the bag and tell me what it smells like, I don't care as long as the flavor's good. Don't waste time telling me where you bought your rig or how the guy at the shop was really cool. Just tell us what you're smoking, what it's in, and if it's good.

anything else everyone? dont be afraid to state anything. what you like and dislike! and what you could change. also dont be afraid to mention something someone else has already said. more people who say the same thing, the more important it is.

In shisha reviews I prefer.
Brand, Flavor, Smell, rig that's being used, and what coals(how many), then take a hit from the hookah, Describe the flavor(compare to other brands) 1-10 rating. end video.

For pipes
I like more in-depth reviews, where you got it, how much ect. Break down the rig, show the parts separately (ACTUALLY HOLD THE PIECE'S TO WHERE I CAN SEE THEM CLEARLY!), describe them such as, feel, looks, ect. Load a bowl, smoke it, describe the pull, or another factors then compare it to something.

All I do, and I don't know if people like it or not because I don't get many views on my videos, is introduce myself, tell people what I'm smoking, a quick judgment of smell out of the bag, first hit (like I get the hookah set up and start warming it up for about 5 minutes) and then when it gets to the prime thickness, show people that. Then I tell people how it tastes and do heat management if needed. I usually give it a rating but that's really not too important. Hope this helps! Check out my videos and tell me what you think of mine and happy smoking!!

You should deffly keep it short, I can't stand watching videos that go on for like 8 minutes because the reviewer stops every 2 seconds to take a puff of the hookah.

Also, be sure to have smoked the flavor before reviewing, so you'll know how long the taste lasts.

Short Hookah Pro Intro .. Give the Hookah Pro Community some love ..

Product: Smell, Taste, Show Tobacco, Smoke .. review based on "WHAT" product says it is, by that I mean if you don't like citrus but the tobacco has a citrus taste, describe it as being what it says it is, instead of saying you don't like it because you don't like citrus.

Keep the video short, nobody wants to sit for 6-7 minutes to hear something that could have been said in less than 4.
Smell, taste, accuracy of flavor, smoke, heat management, how long it lasts both taste and smoke wise.
Try to eliminate dead spots and plan your review ahead of time so you dont have to make stuff up as you go.

A review that is short and to the point is way easier to watch than something that drags on forever.
