Default hookah foils?

Hey, how many of you actually buy hookah foil and how many just use kitchen foil? is it worth the 5 bucks a package?

yes precuts are a big rip off. i use reynold HD foil also and i just double it. and usually the precut ones are to small for me to tightly put over my funnel bowl. i hate precut foil

I use them because I got a TON of them while I was overseas. Once I run out, I'll just use HD

So far i haven't had a kitchen foil that is thin enough....If it's too thick it tastes like metal when you smoke it. The hookah foils online are convenient and ultra thin and thats what you pay for.....but if you can find a foil that doesn't ruin the taste of your shisha then by all means use it then let me know what brand....but the roll of reynolds i have doesn't work good

I use SocialSmoke precut round ones. They're perfect for Tangiers bowls.
Thickness is a plus. I do my crazy perfect hole pattern, but it takes forever. Since this foil is so thick i can use it on multiple bowls without tearing it apart.

I love the pharoah precuts. The $4-5 is worth every bit to me. $4 is just one day without lunch. I survived.

I think it's a mental thing, but my pharaohs foil seems to give less taste than my Reynolds foil. Given, they still aren't big enough for my larger bowls.

I'd like to add to my sparse response above. I have used a type of precut hookah foils before and they were too thin. I have used Reynolds HD for 99% of my sessions and rarely have any heat management problems.

I generally always use Reynold's Wrap but I got some Pharoah's pre-cut foil from ******* Hookah for convenience. I must say they are convenient, however, they are definitely not a necessity. For the price I'd just stick with Reynold's Wrap. Also, if you have a larger sized bowl the pre-cuts will be a pain in the @$$ to use because you won't be able to wrap it on the bowl tightly. Sometimes I have problems using my Vortex with the pre-cut foils, but very rarely.
