Default New KM, not a good session??

hey everyone i just wanted to do some venting on my new km session that i tried tonight but failed miserably. in tonights session i ended up getting some not so thick clouds and not alot of smoke. although the shisha was good. usually im able to produce great smoke and good tasting sessions on my sahara genie. but tonight i ended up changing plenty of things tonight i tried the following:

phunnel bowl
CH coals (3 of them)
af cocktail packed lightly
km pear
1 piece of foil
razaan hose

usually i use the following:

regular hookah bowl
exotica coals (2 1/4 lengths)
af cocktail packed lightly
sahara genie
1 piece of foil
razaan hose

the only difference with the km then the genie is that i used a phunnel bowl and different coals. my conclusion is that i used not enough shisha, packing should probably be different and different coals. im also thinking that the exotica coals tend to burn hotter then ch coals, but i cant substantiate that claim for sure.

i have read different topics and im wondering if i can get different folks tips to see how i can perfect my smoke off my km.

thanks in advance

I wouldn't pack the shisha, i never do for my phunnel. Just try it like you normally would.

Dont expect perfect smoke after only using a phunnel for a few times. It took me about 12 sessions before I really got down using a phunnel bowl. Unless you are using a mod. Remember that you have to pack the shisha up past the rim of the center hole but not higher than the outside rim. also try putting hole in the center of the foil to help get easier pulls.

I would check for any leaks in your rig. That could be one reason your not getting great thick clouds. Also how much shisha did you use you should pack the phunnel about 1/8 of an in. from the the top of the bowl. Hopefully this will help.

AF is now very picky in regards to packing because of the new cut style. This could be a problem. Phunnel bowls tend to take longer to heat up than regular bowls, but get much hotter. Since the shisha is staying wet bathing in it's own juices, you will need more coal to get thicker clouds, but your clouds will be thicker than before. Heat management will be different as well.

its funny how you mentioned about my rig having leaks... first off i had to shave the big grommet that attaches to the base. the reason for shaving it off was due to the fact that getting the stem to fit took alot of muscle to get it too sit, so i ended up shaving a small amount so the fit would be alot easier to cap on. i checked to make sure that i had no leaks by blowing a few times to purge the smoke and luckily i had no leaks so thats one less thing to worry about..

thanks for the great advice keep the tips coming in...
