Oh, god...Please tell me you aren't using a hacked PDA to post on here...If not, then please I beg of you, take it easy on the CAPS lock.

Watch this video of Sambooka on how to setup a Hookah,

Make sure your coals are in the center and well ashed over white if they are quicklights so that they do not taint the bowl with a chemical like taste. We need more information though. Don't center your coal immediately. You might have some bad tobacco. Bowl might be over packed. There are a number of things that could cause this to happen. Just mess around with it a little bit.

This one, I edited my first post...probably after you read it. Also no worries on the caps lock, its an inside joke with the whole hacked PDA thing...never mind it, just make sure you don't go excess with the caps or people will flip shit.

Lol hacked PDA...awesome inside joke

That would be funny if this was him though ^_^

ANyways...When it comes to brands...It really depends on everyone's self preference.

My favs would probably be al fakher and starbuzz. Layaline is ok I guess..It just is the fact that to me, it tastes soapy because of the massive glycerin that is in that tobacco.

BTW where ya from? welcome to the forum

let's not go there! first of all, welcome to the forum.The brand your smoking may not be the problem. It looks like your foil is pushed down too far which means your bowl may be under packed. pack you shisha loosely about 1/8" below the rim of your bowl and make sure your coals are well lit and on the outer edge of the bowl.A bowl that size shouldn't need more than 2 or 3 1/2 pcs. of what I'm thinking are quick lites.take your time and watch the vid link posted above. You'll get it! Once you do you'll want to move on to a better moassell. Please feel free to ask any questions you have.Most of us are more than happy to help a newcomer. good luck!

i agree with abu ronin on this one. looks liek your foil is pushed down. maybe also that you are not letting your coals get ready enough. 2 tips i can offer you now. tighter foil with a good amount of tiny holes. and let your coals heat up till they have a white ash coating

Agree with all of the above. Make sure your tobacco is loosely packed, and "fluffy". Remove all stems. Pull gently, when you draw on the hose, so that air will flow around the tobacco. If you "vacuum" too hard, the air will cause the tobacco to pack tightly, and you will get less smoke.

Make sure your bowl isn't packed to full or too tight the shisha should be fluffy not tight, you may need to add more heat and if you use QL make sure they are 100% gray ashy don't leave any of the black on or you will taste it. Make sure all your seals are good and that you have no leaks, Your tobacco may be old or just bad brand or flavor i have had that happen.
