Default al fakher to wet??

today i decided to try some AF peach and it was waay to wet and too much of a fine cut. the juices went under my bowl all over my grommet and into my stem. it seems like you need a phunnel to smoke AF now. anybody else have this problem with al fakher??

Yep I made a post about AF changing the cut of their tobacco. It's cut too fine and it too wet to smoke from a standard bowl well.

I have been noticing that from sampler to sampler with my AF. Some of it was the normal cut, but some of it was very fine. I got a phunnel for Tangiers but it looks like It will be used for some of my AF flavors as well.

The pipe had a really good cut to it, but yes, the peach was very, very mushy.

I raged.

Yeah I've noticed this alot with AF too. But, what I like about it is that the flavs manage the heat very well.

I was smoking out of a egyptian bowl with AF Grenadine and the coals were like smaller than a dime (they used to be 1/2 of an exotica). Even with that small amount of coals, I still was able to get huge clouds like SB and I never had that before with the old packaging.

it sucks because with the smaller cut, it seems like you have to pack more to get the bowl full...50G samples used to last me about 3-4 bowls, not so much anymore

It's very odd. My grenadine is the old AF cut. My watermelon and peach is shredded like SB cut.
the watermelon was harsher than underpacked tangiers. the peach was good. the grenadine, amazing.
awkward. I shall investigate.

Dude, i got grenadine and it 's MINCED and soaked! it was crazy! it's clogging up my holes! I opened the bag and my first inital thought was wtf? It looked like a pile of red minced mush!!!

I was hoping it was a fluke. I guess it's not

I KINDA found a solution to this when it comes to packing AF in reg bowls.

I just took my first puff of AF Grenadine in a mod bowl..Draw was WAY to restricted.

I decided to get those wooden sticks for shish-kabobs (sorry I forgot the proper name lol) and poke through the holes under the bowl gently for better airflow. I think a toothpick will work as well.

Now, the draw is so much better imo.
