Default mya mini acrylic question

just got my mya mini acrylic in and im getting different taste from my smoke (starbuzz blue myst), kind of a touch of smokey but its not burning. im using the bowl that came with it (the deep mya bowls) and the water up to just about the top of the 2nd bump in the base.

is it just that there is less water for it to travel through than my large rotator, the water is a little higher up the stem than on my rotator but its more choppy when i inhale from it going through the small area of water?

first off the water should be about an inch - inch and a half up the stem. and also you may want to clean out your hookah. other then that if its not burning i really dont know why your getting a crappy taste may also be your coals, what coals are you using?

im using cocos, and i scrubbed and rinsed the stem before i used it

i have the water a little under an inch up, usually on my other rig i only have it like .5-.75 above the bottom, not sure if i should have it a lot higher on this.

i think it could be the bowl since i never used this bowl before and i am getting that weird lighter color on the foil a little that usually gives me a weird taste but this is different, maybe its also that the base is plastic, i did rinse it out before i used it but it might just need time to loose the flavor

should i add some more water to take it up to like 1.5 inches?

i think it might have been the bowl, even though its deep there was a lot of ash that ended up in my vase so im switching to my good old mod bowl with blue myst again and see how it smokes

If that doesn't work I would try using two pieces of foil.

Get a new glass Vase and vortex, phunnel, genie Bowl, on my 26'' bohemian the Original bowl is terrible, isn't glazed and takes the first flavor in it and adds it to every bowl afterward, IMO choose 1 flavor and use it in that bowl only!
