Default Hookah on the way!

I've just ordered my Hookah! Got a 75cm single pipe hookah with all the bits and pieces. Also ordered Grape & Mint Al Fakhar and comes with 2 packs of Soex herbal smoke!

Some pics to follow when it arrives!

Oh boy! It came with some Soex?! Just kidding, I guess Soex is pretty terrible, but congrats on the hookah and AF!

Enjoy your new hookah pipe! The AF mint is fantastic stuff. Can be mixed in with anything for a nice refreshing smoke. Very coooling. Congrats on your purchase. Let us know how everything smokes!

Nice purchase dude! Is a pretty acceptable size also the al fakher flavors are great the mint is gonna give you some nice and refreshing sessions, also the grape flavor is great and the soex well I have never tried it but I haven't heard good things either.

Congrats on everything BUT the soex. I'd say try it for S-n-G's, but don't say you weren't warned, that stuff is pretty nasty.

Ok I recieved my Hookah about an hour ago

First impressions were'nt too good, as the package had a rip in it! I took out the contents tho and everything seemed to be intact. I will post some pics up later of my rig.

I have already smoked it, I bought Al Fakhar mint & grape. The grape came in a clear bag, rather than the normal 50g box. The mint came as it should. I smoked the grape just now, it wasnt quite what I expected. I read a post about it smelling of ketchup, it did smell of grape but the taste was a little odd. It was REALLY wet, where as the mint was quite firm, so im wondering if its possibly a bad batch or something There was no production date on the pack either

I will review my Hookah later on for you all

No Al Fakher should come in clear bags! I am guessing what they did was take a normal 250g box of AF and made smaller boxes out of them. As for the taste, it appears you had a bad batch, sorry. I am NOT going to buy AF grape until they sort their stuff out; lost out too many time then I care to remember.

I'm having a bit of a dilemma now to be honest! My smoke seems to be very thin and really dry in the throat. Ive tried both my flavors and its the same on both. I'm wondering whats wrong, could it be the coal im using? It is Excelsior QL coal.

never heard of these coals but that may be what's giving you the dry tickle.as for the grape, ifi it smells ok than it's not a bad batch.The new batches of AF are much weter than the old, btw.If the mint had a plain red tear strip, w/out the af logo on it than it is an older batch and would be dryer.Still fine though.

Thats the type of QL I sometimes use. Instead of using one, you have to use one and half to get decent smoke.

Thanks all for the comments! I have just got back from a trip to Portsmouth, and ive had another go. I bought some Bacofoil and used it instead of the foil I had, the tobacco seemed to burn more evenly and I actually enjoyed the smoke instead of choking on it, so i think it could be the foil I was using. I also used a birthday candle holder instead of a pin to make the holes in the foil, so perhaps this is it!!
