Default I dont know what so great about AF

ive only had 1 good flavor EVER from al fahker and that was peach.

ive never tried any of the flavors people talk about on here like Grenadine or lemon mint and i would love to try them (they dont sell those flavors at shops around here)
BUT, i dont see whats so great about it, the grape was terrible and mine didnt taste like ketchup.
strawberry, cocktail, orange, apple, honey, cherry (alright), berry (oh god...cough medicine)
all really BAD.

imo Hookah-Hookah is better, if you get it right that is.
is it just because of the new cut? i dont see how that would affect things so greatly.

AF is overrated. When it was good it was very good, but nowadays it's bad, really bad. LOL Fine cut, mushy texture and chemical smell of lots of flavors, not worth buying. IMO

AF has taken a turn towards the more contemporary style of moassel, but still produces a quality product.Some issues not withstanding.

I still like it, and prefer a lot of it over something like, say more than a handful of Al Waha or Al Amir flavors.

I've had pretty good experiences with them. I do understand...the grape thing I don't really get, It didn't taste like ketchup but it wasn't as mindblowing as everyone says. But the other flavors I've tried from them were great!

Eh it used to be my favorite brand until they changed so many things. I'd rather not spend my money on something that is now inconsistent compared to its "golden days".

I wonder if their losing money now since a lot of people aren't happy about their product anymore?

I mixed AF and Nahkla recently and found that to be good. Depends on the flavor though. I think it was AF peach and Nahkla mint.

remember, they have 20+ flavors, some like some while others like other. I think it's priced well too. Also, they offer it in 50g packs so you don't need to commit to a whole tub in order to try a flavor your unsure of. I just had some ESK apple and it was great. I've tried so many that weren't as well.

I'd gladly pay extra for SB anytime. AF isn't for me either.

As mentioned prior, AF used to be bombay. Their orange, mint, melon, peach, and a few other flavors were mind blowing. Ive been a fan for the 8 yrs ive been smoking but recently...idk man it is not the same. I got a new batch of orange (2008) and compared it to my batch from last year and the 2008 batch lacks flavor (i have seen it to be the same case for sweet melon and mint).

All i got to say is

especially since im in the process of opening a lounge in irvine/laguna beach area in california im not sure who to go with for shisha

i was disappointed with af, i just got my rig in aug (smoked for about a year before) and the af was ok, but not as good as it was built up for me (no where around here smoked af in lounges). but i will say that the apple and watermelon while at first i was really disappointed with now i kinda like here and there

If you look at my top lists ..

AF is in there for a couple of flavors! (Mint, Grape, Double Apple)

I agree that to each his own ...

HH is better i think.

there are a lot more brands of tobacco out there to try. af is just another brand you can try and then move on to the next.

But Robitussin is the best... ask Chris Rock!

AF Used to be great, but now i can't stand the cut. It makes it look and act cheap. Speaking of the cut... didn't they say they were gonna fix that?

Yeah they said they we're as far as I remember. Well apparently not! We might as well start killing people for the precious expired AF...

af is ok, it has lost grounds in my eyes. it takes some getting used to the new cut abd stuff, but IMO it out does H-H most of the time. H-H has some great flavors, but i wish it lasted longer.

Almost every great product that is widely known in the hookah world is overrated.
Al Fakher right now is overrated because it has changed it's cut. Back then, it was very good. Now, not so much.
