Default Dancing Coals Suck

I hate that when i'm smoking and doing something else (such as posting on hp.com ^_^), i don't notice the coal vibrating around the bowl... typically towards the center and then the bowl gets all harsh >.<

I don't want to push them down into the foil cause that burns the tobacco too.

Anyone have any advice for stopping "dancing coals"?

A diffuser helps reduce this. I call it foil rattle. LOL

I hate that too! Sometimes if the coals don't stop moving, I make a ring out of foil and position the coals around that. Helps ALOT!

You can get a diffuser or make one

You can use a funnel with a mod

You can use a thicker foil. This helps a bit.

Diffuser FTW! My coal doesn't move at all with it. They are easy to make too.

Don't blame the coals, blame the hookah. lol
KM's are infamous for this.
Make a diffuser, or if you can't, try poking smaller holes.

if it gets really bad, i just make a little ring of foil and place it in the center of my bowl... this helps keep them from moving, but then again, if you're using a phunnel bowl, having the heat in the middle doesn't necessarily make the tobacco harsh, it actually helps distribute the heat a little better IMO... try the ring thing, be sure to pull the foil as tight as you can across the bowl, and don't let too much slack form while you're poking holes

I'm still using it. It has held up great and doesn't retain flavor like I've heard the Heba Diffusers do.

I use it about 95% of the time since I'm usually watching tv or movies while I smoke. It really quiets down the hookah and stops the coals from moving around.
