Default what do you think about quick lite coals?

so i use exotica coals and when i was smoking i still had sisha left but the coals went out and i didnt want to go and wait for some to light up because i was already smoking for like an hour or so, so i decided to just lite up a quick lite and put it on there and it gave off the nastiest taste that i just stopped smoking and packed up a new bowl and and waited for the exoticas to heat up.

I used to use QLs for a month when I first started and then I finally got my hands on a bag of Rolland Natural Coals...I couldn't believe how CLEAN and good the smoke was with naturals.

After I got used to smoking with naturals, I used a QL just to try 'em out and compare...Ugh I couldn't believe how nasty and vile it made the hookah taste. After that one hit, I knocked that QL off the bowl and into my ashtray cuz that QL was just nasty as heck (the QL i was using at the time were starlights)

Hehe since then, I've been mainly using natural coals. I couldn't believe how much I was missing out when I was using QL never again unless I run out of naturals or if I'm traveling

Not much i can say about QL. I used up the pack that came with my hookah and went and bought a box of Exoticas. Ten times better. Lasted longer in my opinion, i have no problems on waiting for them to heat up on my stove. Worth the wait.

QL's are horrible. I won't use them ever again. I'd rather not smoke than use a QL.

QL's are the worst coals u can use. they have an own flavour, so the tobacco doesnt taste that good with these coals

I have had mixed experiences. I got some QL coals, and tried them. I liked the convenience of just lighting one, and letting the coal "sparkle", then dropping on the foil, and smoking. You must light the coal OUTSIDE, and let all of the pre-light fuel burn up BEFORE dropping the coal on the foil. The QL had virtually no taste at all.

I got a different brand, and tried them. The first coal was GROSS! It tasted like diesel fuel. I threw the whole batch away.

Now, I mostly use japanese style. They are a bit of a hassle to light, I prefer a blowtorch-type lighter.

I think it's funny when people say "I'm lazy so I use QL's." I always think when I read that well then I hope you enjoy that nasty taste.

They do the job, you can't complain, they're cheap and accessible. They bring fire, I don't complain.

I use 3K right now because that's all that i have that's good. I have some nasty japs, and some even nastier QL's. I never seem to get any nasty taste or what not that people have been talking about. Maybe I'm just used to it?!?!

mike, i really admire your dedication to racking up posts - try posting some new stuff though, rather than digging up so many old topics. Guaranteed you'll get more responses that way.
