Default Ice Chamber

Home made, store bought it dont matter what kind. Do you think they make a difference over simply puting ice in the vase and chilling your hose? Personally I found that chilling my hose makes a huge difference over an unchilled hose and ice cubes in the vase. What do you guys think? Anyone ever use an ice chamber?

I only smoked once with a chamber at a friends friend and didnt notice any change. I wouldnt spent money on something that makes a such a small difference or nothing at all. The best to do IMO is to put chilled water (denser, so filters better and less air passes = thicker whiter smoke) and clilled hose ( for cold flavourful hits)

Ice chambers for me don't really seem to make a difference. If its a hot day, I get a bucket, get some freezer bags fill them with ice and put the base inside the bucket with the ice bags around the base. Chilling the hose is always a Plus and Ice in the base is a must. I have found that using crushed ice and less water versus more water and ice cubes, using crushed ice works alot better, or perhaps a combination a both, kind of a mid-point.

If you put dry ice in the chamber it would make a huge difference. however dont EVER put it in the vase. Dry ice would make you sick if not worse and certainly destroy your vase.

very little difference. Xerxes had one, it didnt make much of a difference. If you wanted a truly cold smoke, clean out the hookah and put it in the freezer for ten minutes. Take the bugger out and fill the ice chamber with shaved ice. Gave you a truly cool smoke that way. Just with the ice chamber, you didn't really notice a difference.

the next hookah I buy will have an ice chamber.

But for now, I wrap the base with those ice packs like for keeping your cooler cold or to put on an injury. then wrapping it in a towel for insulation to keep the cold in. works wonderfull

I tried Doing that with the ice packs but in a backet and i didnt see a big improovment.
I never put ice in the vase. instead i always have ice cold water to use instead. i fill the vase and put it in the fridge 1st( not really a difference here, just a habbit) and leave it there until i prepare the bowl and everything else.
The best thing to do for ice-cold hits is to put your hose in the fridge. (not in the freezer, last time i did i had a soarthroat the next day)
As i said an icechamber is not somethind i'd pay extra for...

Guess i'm the odd man out here but i've noticed a huge benefit to using an ice chamber. A pal of mine has a 35" Syrian with an ice chamber and it condenses the smoke and makes it more flavourful. I personally own a Khalel Mamoun ice chamber I got from www.SphinxHookah.com and I've got to say it is fantastic.
