Default what is your opinion of the coals?

I have enjoyed going to the hookah bars with my friends but now i want to get my own hookah so I can enjoy myself at home. I am about to purchase my first hookah. And I wanted to get some input on what the best coals might be. I hear alot about coco nara. Any suggetions?

Thanks, knottychic

I'm using some cheap Japanese quicklites right now. As long as you get them super-hot and going, they're ok. Any silver crap around them should be removed. They don't burn very long - I typically use 3 for 45 min and could go longer, but am too lazy to start more coals. I've been desperately wanting to try the coco nara. Most of the forum seems to think they're great.

Coco-naras my friend. They are the best for flavor, heat, and in my opinion, they go forever. haha If your into the whole quick light thing, I recommend golden coals, the 33mm, they have never stopped burning on me, and once there lit they don't smell at all.

Coconara seem to be the most well like coals on the US market right now. I have not had them in years so I am unable to give a fair opinion on them currently.

My two coals of choice are Exotica and Begian natural disks. I like the Exoticas better and they are cheaper by weight but the Belgians are a good choice.

coco-nara are the best overall
starlight nats are the best bang for our buck
starlight QL's are a good ql as well, but all ql's still suck

ive really only had some generic jap quicklights with the silver on the outside, starbuzz quicklites (which are good, ive used them the most).. but recently i got a small box of CH quicklites and im starting to like those more than the starbuzz. but i hear great things bout CoCos.. i just havent tried those yet.

If you're in a hurry and dont care about sacrificing small flavor get some quicklights, but coconaras are the way to go if you have the time to let them heat up for a bit and burn. Usually I put those on the stove first, then get out my hookah, clean it, pack the bowl, foil etc... and by the time im done preparing the coals should be good to go.

it all depends on what your looking for
for a quicklight i recommend three king coals. this is by far the best quicklight. and for natural the best is coconaras. although i think my last box was bad because the bottoms did not stay lit for shit

I gotta go against the crowd here. I like my Exotica coals.
Last just as long, easier to light and cheaper than CacaNaras.

Knotty do you have a stove top? If not just go out and buy an electric one and get yourself some natural coals. Coconara is a well acclaimed brand, and rightfully so. Definitely a solid pick and won't disappoint.

Coconara's are my number one choice. A nice second would be AF Hookah Coconut Charcoal. I'm not a fan of any QL's, myself. Smoke happy.

Never tried anything other then QL's other then Vivi natural coals, which sucked... :P
