Default Just got my first KM!

Hey

I just have to share this experience with you guys.

As some of you might know, I went back to Kuwait for the holidays. I found a shop that had KM's and I got a 30" for $30. Anyway, I put some ice in the base and the smoke was REALLY cool, I have never experienced cool smoke from my Mya regardless of the ice, that was alright.

I was trying some special mix from the store I went to, it had a crazy buzz and an alright flavor. 20 Mins through the session though the smoke got sickeningly harsh (the smoke was still cool). I had three coconaras, ice in the base and a regular egptian bowl. The smoke got unbelievably harsh it took 10 minutes without cools for the harshness to go away despite constant purching.

Is that common with KM's? or could it be the moassal I was using or entirely something else? I have never experienced harshness so bad it ruined the session for me.

harshness cannot be blamed on a hookah that is simple a tool in the process.

heat management and the tobacco you used would be responsible for the harshness.

That is one too many coconaras for a standard KM bowl

It sounds like heat management to me. The bowl that came with my KM is huge and three cocos are about right. Be sure to leave enough space between the foil and the shisha, because if you don\'t, you could be burning shisha which can also make it harsh.

if it was smoking good at one point then started not smoking good, and you didnt change anything then its something to do with the bowl, not the pipe.
