Default Any successful AF bowls...

So I just stoked up my supply of AF and low and behold it is the new stuff that people are talking about that isn't as good as the old stuff, as far as easily burning and not as much flavor. Has anyone liked or had any good experiences with the new AF, if so did you prepare it any differently? What did you do?

Thanks

With the new type I just packed it normally...fluff the shisha, double layer, 3 rings of holes and 2 Jap easy lights....not much flavour but you can taste it.

with the new stuff i paked the bowl (egiptian) more tight, because the cut its very thin, i use one 3 kings coals splitted in 2, on the ends of the bowl, double layer of foil, and that way gives me the best results, very big clouds and good flavor
try it that way, you gone to like it

I have recently bought the mint, grape, and cinnamon. All have been fantastic. No problems here!

I finished off a 50gr Plum early this morning and it was fine. Nice clouds and good flavor. Went for an 1.5 hours with no loss. Going to break into a new 50gr mint tonight, we'll see how it goes.

Lol. The new cut bothers me. I rather have thicker cut tobacco. It smokes alright in a phunnel, but i liked when i could smoke it in a regular egpytian.

It depends, since you know some of the current issues are complaining about, as long as you take those into consideration, you can get a good smoke from AF. The AF Golden Grape I recently got is remarkably good, the Pom/Grendine is good too. I just now treat newer cut AF more like SB and have no big issues with it.

I'm working on trying to find a small phunnel for juicier cuts like the new AF, so that may be slightly helpful.

Nah I still can't get it to smoke right and it pisses me off lol. Like the smoke scratches my throat and I set up my hookah like I always have and had no probs before. I tried another AF flav and had the same probs.

Trust me! I have! I acclimated AF Grenadine for 3 days and most of the juice of the bottom dried out. I smoked it again...Still the same prob except the flavor tasted stronger. I can't air it out anymore or else the tobacco will get too dry

You guys are "trippin'."

Al Fakher needs to be coddled if you want it smoke correctly.
