Ohhh Man that sucks! I have dropped a good chunk of Exotica once .. arrgg and when I tried to pick it up I dropped it again! arrrrgggg

Anyway, about Exoticas, I LOVE them, I use them all the time, and I have never been having the issues with them that some of you others have experienced. I feel it is important to mention this because we always hear the negative and not to much of the positive. These are some of my favorite coals right now, they provide the right amount of heat and hold together well.

I did notice mine break in half, if I rotate them a lot when I am heating them up. SO usually I just put them on the stove and light until red all over without rotating and they usually never split when I do that.

You guys that have coals crumble when you pick them up must have awful strong grips. I have never, ever have a coal break, fall apart, shatter or anything else involving a coal ending up in more than 1 piece when using tongs. I have used 500 or more quarter stick sized pieces of Exoticas and had 3 crack or break. The ones that broke were left on the heat too long. Not saying that you didn't have a bad coal, but these stories are way too frequent. Be careful when handling coals, they are hot and delicate. LOL

That's strange, but I fully understand what happened. I've had Exoticas behave perfectly, then at other times a coal does like yours did, shatter into little pieces - EVERYWHERE! I'm not sure why some sticks do this, out of the same box - the top air exposed one are BEHAVING better than the bottom sticks.

I share your pain, I rent as well and have several LARGE burns in my carpet. I figure when we are ready to move, I'll cut a patch out from one of the closets and repair the burns (putting the burn spots BACK into the closet). You might want to consider something like this for your burns as well.

Good luck and sorry dude.

Well, I will praise the ones I have, I must have gotten really lucky! Cuz mine are fantastic, and provide me with the perfect amount of heat, no taste additive to my session, and last a good solid 60 minutes with a windcover near the end of my session.

I deal with this problem a lot but I have strong grips. Most of the time I'm double tasking when I smoke ( unfortunately ) so I'm not paying attention when ashing coals or placing my coals.

If you havn't tried Coconaras, i would recommend them. If they are too much, may i recommend Golden Canary Japanese coals from HookahCompany.

I've had no problems with exotica either. Infact my last order from CH included another box. It could be the way people store them, heat, and handle. I will try Coco's out next batch I buy, but as far as Exotica's go; I love them. I just hope the new stuff isn't too hard, they were good when you could snap them with your fingers.

I'm buying nothing but Coconaras from now on, I've never had 1 break or crack even when dropped and they last far longer than exoticas for me.

Heh I don't care too much now about the coal smell since I'm used to it now. Exoticas are wayyy cheaper than Coconaras. I'm still curious about those coals but buying it online seems a lil too expensive compared to Exoticas.

Sorry to hear about your luck Davis.
However, I'll keep your tip in mind re: turning, Sambooka. I've got a box exoticas heading my way, hopefully I'll have good luck with them.

I have been using exoticas since feb. Only nat coal I have ever used. Never had one NOT ONE break in my tongs. That is unfortunate to hear your tragedy. It is not good that you don't have your parents permission. Maybe you should confront them about it asap so when things like this happen they aren't blown out of proportion like so. You can replace little squares of carpet. and possibly get your deposit back. This is your opportunity to break the ice. I suggest you talk to your mom and take the lashes.

this happened to me with about 1/4 of the exoticas i used when i first started hookah. i have dubbed them "explodicas!" and you can quote me on that!

i'm pretty sure the problem was the way i was holding them in the tongs. and i was using way too much pressure to hold them. i have since learned that almost no pressure is needed to hold them. problem solved :P
