Default Fantasia: Lack of smoke???

So I purchased some Fantasia Fuzzy Naval tonight, and decided to smoke a bowl in order to test the brand out. First of all, I was VERY happy with the flavor, very "peachy"

My gripe is, I didn't get a lot of smoke. Considering how wet the shisha was I expected more smoke.

My setup is as follows:
Nammor Cleopatra
Nammor Hose
Vortex Bowl
Double reg. foil (dropped to single later)
3 coco's with a windcover
Regular base setup (water, cold but no ice)

This amount of heat should have garnered me SOMETHING by way of smoke, no harshness but no fluffy white f*** off clouds I expected based on videos I've seen.

Is this specific to Fuzzy Naval, or am I just stupid?

Thanks in advance,
Smoke happy

sounds like a good setup. i have had fantasia strawberry daiquiri and it wasnt bad but i dont remember any significant smoke clouds either. maybe just the tobacco, because it sounds like a significant amount of heat. and with only 1 sheet of reg foil, i'm surprised you didn't burn it. strange.

That was my surprise also, although the vortex allows you to overheat nearly anything to lava-levels. No harshness, never had to purge, nothing of the sort. I just always figured Fantasia to be one of those brands that gave dragon plumes of smoke.

i smoke fantasia ace of spades/incredible hulk quite often. i use 2 cocos and a windcover on my mini... and i get good smoke. so im confused on how this happened. check your hookah to see if its airtight? poke holes all the way to the bowl? howd you pack it? i just drop it in, then level it out with my finger.

check out my review of apple martini. fantasia has completely different heat management from my exp. its starts out not very big clouds, and just partial flavor. keep the heat on it and slowly let it heat up with a windcover and it'll get soooo much better in about 30 min in. the flavor really comes out at those high temps.

BEWARE: Do not try and get it really hot to fast. it'll ruin the bowl. its kinda finicky that way. but once you get there, its worth it.

Good luck!

fantasia is probably the easiest tobacco to get smoking

i literally drop it into the phunnel and throw a couple coals on and the room is filled with smoke in minutes

there is so much glycerin in fantasia that the smoke is huge

yea i noticed it smoked alot better in a phunnel than my vortex. most likely bc the vortex spires couldnt get through the thickness of the glycerin but yea its killer

your probably correct that the glycerin is clogging the holes....i think that super wet tobacco probably goes best in a phunnel, where a vortex probably out performs on wet tobacco that isnt overly wet like fantasia
