isn't it racist to say the word 'jap'? i thought that was like using the 'n' word for african americans... no i've never tried those.

yeah im liking the price of the box too looks pretty big.. no more hassle of cutting the damn coal but i love how long the regular exoticas last.

oh btw

Jap

n. Offensive Slang
Used as a disparaging term for a person of Japanese birth or descent.

it is a racial slur..

I'm sure the tabs are made of a similar,if not the same substance as the stix and should burn just as well.
And yes , the word "jap" can be seen as derogitory but I think you know very well that that was not the intent.As I stated, my son is half asian and his name, Ronin, which I gave him,is actually Japanese in origin.
The Japanese word "ronin" is from the shogun era and it means warrior w/out a master,or lone fighter, ect.
I did attempt to change the thread title, but the edit feature does not allow for changing of thread title, only content.

You callin' me lazy mofo?....Well your right!!
btw, the ebay seller is gabe from exotica, so this is probably the standard retail price.It's really not a bad price if they are similar quality to the stix.I pay $9.99 for a box of abu hitam "jap" tabs and they are well worth the $ imo.

Folks have been calling them Jap taps for awhile. It is also considered a slur. I've never been a fan of calling them that, I usually call them Japanese Silver tabs. I'm sure as abu said he meant no disrespect be calling them that.

Yup, I did a review on one of these a while back when I met up with Gabe.

They were pretty good when they were in beta mode, but there was a slight after taste. Maybe he fixed it.

They aren't any better then Golden Canary Coals, which are much cheaper. If your paying 15 bucks, you should just go completely natural and buy coconut coals.

They're already available from Exotic Imports. We used to have a discount code for them but it expired.

The code completehookah saves you 10%. I have no desire to try them as they are nearly double the price of Exoticas and 2 per bowl would mean 48 sessions per box. Seeing that I get 100 sessions from a Kilo of Exoticas that actually makes them 4 times as expensive!! Pass.

I tried the GC coals and was not impressed at all. And Silver Flints were even worse. Hopefully Exotica silvers will be less crappy, after all they're quite expensive.

yeah. theres were exotica jap coals. silver. i asked them what they were so i would never get them. I use regular exoticas and they've never smashed appart like that before. I've used some other funky jap quicklights and i cant stand them. as far as quicklights go, i'd have to go with 3kings. i havent had the time or money really to try coco-naras out for the naturals, but one day...

Dats hella weird since when I tried them, they never broke but the did have a weird after-taste (but nothing so bad that's I'd stop smoking. It was very tolerable). Perhaps that lounge you went to had bad batches but never reported it?

Coco-Nara coals are so overhyped, it makes my blood boil.

They last a good minute, but they give off a taste that irritates my senses.
