I am baffled by how hated AF has become. While AF has never been my favorite company I can't say i've had anything to complain about save the decision to replaced Ark Sous with a perfectly ordinary licorice flavoured product.

[FONT=Verdana]I smoked a 50gm box of white grape last night...it got harsh real fast, very uncharacteristic of AF. I have noticed that their consistency has gone down, although not significantly, but noticeably in the last 6 months. Maybe they had a bad production, or it might be that they're doing what a lot of hookah manufacturers overseas are doing...raising prices and lowering quality (i.e. new KM Stainless Steel Hookahs, they're imported pre-rusted).[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Mike and I have been incredibly disappointed in the quality of some of the products coming in to the states, and in turn have refused to pick certain things up.[/FONT]

Yeah it is all opinion!

I like Al Fakher! Just that there grape fell off the wagon and that was my favorite!

I like their cinnamon, mint, double apple, and a few others I have some to review too ..
I don't have the ark sous but I bet I would really like that!!

I just got finished listening to a CD Sambooka sent me. It is a best of Elton John and Liberace CD and I felt moved to write a parody tune. This is to the tune of "Candle in the Wind" it's called "Scandal in the Bowl" I hope you like it, like to hear it here it go!

Goodbye Al Fakher
You used to be the best cheap tobacco of all
But something happened to your quality
That caused your product to fall
People sang your praise endlessly
Rambling like they were insane
Now your shisha tobacco is lack luster
And your supporters hide their face in shame

Chorus

And it seems to me your tobacco is
Like a scandal in the bowl
Tasting great in one batch
But the next tastes like a$$hole
And I wish you were still great
But your quality has slid
Your shame will live on
Like your legend never did

The competitions tough
But you had them by the throat
You took shortcuts in quality
And your customers got prison poked
Now that you have died
Some diehards can't handle it
They can cheer all they want
But the truth is your product's sh!t!

Back to chorus

Goodbye Al Fakher
That guy Sam in FL A
He sees your grape as something sexual
But it's not as good as White Grape by AA

But the grape use to be phenomenal! I shared some with Members, now I am wishing I kept it! lol .. but I suppose it is sharing that makes this place so great.
I agree on the mint still being good. I just got some a week ago and it was awesome. I am still smoking from a Kilo of AF double apple and it is still the best around. I have heard of bad AF double apple but havn't seen any bad dbl apple myself yet.

I knew you would like those CDs Dunkel! It was embarrassing to go buy them for you, but I figured, "Hey It's Christmas Time!" Enjoy them and play them as loud as you want when you are playing dress up! Rocket Man!

That is a common newbie mistake. I did the same thing! read my interview with Sahara Smoke lol ..

Double apple is actually apple and licorice/anise

You may not like it now, but it will grow on you if you give it time!

Im glad a bunch of vendors have stepped in and agreed =]. But vendors..you are the guys who bring in this stuff, why not enforce your own 'quality control' with your stores and not carry horrible products, i'm not trying to start something but its the truth =/. If vendors/stores refuse to stock up on fakher, then maybe AF will notice and say hmm maybe something is wrong.

But hey I totally agree AF is in the crap shoot

I AGREE with speel.

The vendors should enforce some rules. Otherwise, the problem will continue.

i just purchased 2x50gs lastnight of AF Caffe Latte & AF Cappucino ;xxxx

im anxious to try the flavors but not too anxious bc its AF, its a hit/miss

ill review after i smoke, i might change my mind about AF's coffee flavors, these 2 i picked up smells pretty darn good
This is what happens with al fakher you get a good batch once and your hooked on it like a crack addict . then you go to the store and get another tub and its nowhere near as good as the first time so you go buy so many tubs to try to get that first time taste like a junkie trying to achieve his first high effects. if it was consistent the company wouldn't have any competitors the would kill the market

I have had few problems with AF, but that might be because I only started smoking it more than once every 6 months or so since everyone has been saying it's gone downhill. I also have a select list of flavors I smoke, which may be part of the reason they are good
Apple, Jasmine (great combo), Apricot, Plum (another great combo), Peach, Cocktail, and Lemon. I've had no trouble with them.

Hey Speel,

As a vendor we try our hardest to enforce quality control on the items we pick up. Unfortunately since most of the hookah products are made overseas and given the relatively young nature of the hookah industry, there isn't a standard that can be set on quality control like in many other industries with certifications like ISO.

As the industry progresses here in the U.S., I can guarantee that those of us who really care about quality and not just margins will lead the way with new and improved products that bring consistency, flavor and beauty. Give it some time, but it will come!

Hey Eugene thanks for the reply , well I didn't mean like manufacturing quality control but more along the lines of personal quality control. For instance I work in a wine store, if the manager doesn't like the taste of the wine, he decides to not carry it. So kinda along the lines of that. But of course if AF is your top seller you wouldn't pull it from your shelves. So the vendors descression should be enough to filter out the bad brands.
