Question Searching information about this hookah named ice-torrent

Hi Hookah pro's,

I was wondering if anyone has some experience with a hookah named Ice Torrent. I am willing to buy this hookah, but I have no experience with hookah in combination with ICE.

The hookah can be seen here http://www.h2joy.nl/waterpijp-kopen/ice-torrent/

What I want to know is, is it true that the smoke produced by this hookah will give you absolute taste enrichment?

Thanks in advance

Hi, welcome to HookahPro.
I guess u are from Holland?

I've never tried a hookah with an 'ice chamber' before, but I would rather put ice in the base with the water instead of putting ice in that chamber.

Both putting ice in that chamber and putting ice in the water will cool the smoke more, so it will be less harsh. But I barely use ice with hookah.. and when I do I don't taste so much difference.

Ice chambers flat-out don't work. Tried and tested with two similar pipes side by side. Same tobacco, same coals, same temperature water in the base. The one without the chiller actually smoked a little cooler.

Ice in the bottle is an overrated fad in my opinion. A pipe of respectable size doesn't need ice to provide a smooth and comfortable smoke. All you are doing is taking flavor away by chilling it.

Honestly, slightly warm water works great in my experience.

The chiller does look sweet though, I'll give it that.

Hey there and welcome to HP. Its nice to see more dutch people here.
In my opinion ice does work but I guess everyone has there own take on that. Personally I will never buy a hookah just for having an ice chamber. You could easely put the ice in the vase...

I would honestly skip and look for something else, I've heard nothing but subpar to bad reviews of the ice torrent, most of the people who bought it had to look for another pipe within just months of using it, because it completely rusts. The ice chamber included is also a universal one that will rust after just a few uses (if not treated with some type of rust proofing finish on the inside), hookah-shisha has them on sale with alot of negative reviews, if you want to check them out.

Taste enrichment? Absolutely not. It will however cool down the temperature of the smoke. Nothing more. And as stated above, ice in the vase works better than an ice chamber.

the ice bowl is suppose to be a "healthier" variant if you want to call it.

Ice + Heat + Enclosed space = moisture. Moisture is bad for your lungs. Fluid in ur lungs means you have pneumonia.

Hi Guys,

Sorry for my late response. I wanna thank everyone for the reply's and the information. Im going to look for a other hookah that willl have something extra that will enrich the taste of the smoke. As I can read from the responses here, I should look for something that doesn't rust, because if it will rust within months then that sounds like wasting some precious euros.

Anyone got a suggestion on what kind of hookah I should buy to add some extra flavour or better taste when smoking?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings, newbie hookah (pro)

Anything of traditional construction. VOrtex bowl in my experience is the best device one can use to aid in the preserving of flavor.

the way it fits into the bowl doesn't even look like it would be able to make a good seal, plus what everyone else has said

Just thinking about, i dont know, physical laws and stuff at which i am no expert, passing smoke around ice should not cool it at all. passing the smoke through ice water on the other had forces the smoke into a cooling situation. gimick.

I'd pass on the ice bowl, I haven't used them but from what I've heard around they don't seem to be that great.

^^^ You guys really need to read the whole thread, he's already looking for different Hookahs.

anyways lovinghookahs3 I'm not sure what your new question is. You're looking for a hookah that adds flavor? The hookah itself doesn't add flavor but there are lots of things you can try with any hookah i.e juice in base, fruit bowls... that will add some flavor to your smoke
Hope that helps

I think its all kind of a scam. It sometimes works if you put salt on top of the ice, but its too much effort for me >.<
