Do you smoke with a shisha filter?

I don't, I don't feel the need ... I am perfectly fine with the water filtering the smoke, somewhat ...

You mean this filter?:

http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1342

I have smoked with it a couple of times, they aren't that great. They take away a lot of the flavor. Although they may stop nicotine and keep the smoke from tasting harsh...They aren't worth the money

It does make the smoke a lil more smoother, but it takes a good amount of the flavor away

Its not really uncomfortable...it just makes it look kinda odd when you smoke too lol.
Especially if you are smoking with your friends and you are using mouth tips...its really weird with the hose tip, then the shisha filter on top of that, then the mouth tip on top of that.

For S & G's, I bought one... (like Jilly's Link)

From playing with it, I can't say if it's doing ANYTHING to the little nicotine in the tobacco, but I have noticed that it kills ALOT of the taste & some of the smoke. It helps with strong tasting flavors (coffee), but with lighter one kills the flavor altogether.

Trufully, I wouldn't waste your money on one of them.

I tried the "carbo-filter" made by some Lebanese company and it made the draw much harder and it took away all the taste. If someone could make a decent filter i'd be willing to try it but so far I've not heard of one.

I cut the filter off a cigarette to use as a filter once, let's just say it wasn't a smart idea. it tasted like crap to me.

I use one all the time now because I don't like nicotine, as long as you get rid of the crap carbon that comes in it and use pellets changed daily it doesn't affect taste or draw but does filter out the nicotine.

wow they make filters. If the water didn't do the trick. It would remind me too much of cigarettes which I only smoke when I'm stressed out to no end.
