Default Question about my nour Hookah

I recently purchased this nour hookah from thehookahstore.com

http://www.thehookahstore.com/index....roducts_id=167

Right now I am using a KM hose, exocita coals, starbuzz strawberry margerita shisa and for some reason my smoke isnt that thick like I see on other ppls on here.. Don't get me wrong this nour flow smoothly and smoke like a champ but i get better smoke in my KM chiller and my 42" egyptian hookah.... WHAT AM I DOING WRONG

I just got a 23" Syrian Nour and it smokes every bit as good as my 35" KM Pear.

like BradedUp said.
You probably have an air leakage or something.

Yep, doesn't sound air tight. My 2 Nour Syrians smoke better than my KM I believe.

No leaks anywhere checked everything and used different garments for the hose and bowl... Smoke is ok its decent but not thick how I want it...

I work at a hookah lounge and I tried all garments and different bowls etc.. The KMs we used at work still hit harder.....

My friend told me to order a namor hose and a phunnel bowl..... my boss said stop buying hookahs unless I'm buying from him....

EDIT: put some cocos on there and it was a little bit thicker than using exoticas.. used different shisha(the ones that came with the hookah) it was decent the shisa was a bit dry..

Km is a decent hose, unless you really want a hose that is waterproof they is no need to get nammor.

A phunnel would help, but even using one, i dont think the smoke density gets any better then a standay clay bowl, i only use the phunnel so the shisha juice does not fall down the stem.

Try another bowl, and poke small holes on your foil, and try using a windcover so it concentrates the heat towards the bowl

EDIT: Ment washable hose not waterproof lol

I praise that response HIGHLY! Lots of peeps believe it takes a Nammor along with a large Tangiers phunnel and loads of coal to get big smoke...WRONG! These things are nice but that's not necessarily what you need. I've gotten huge smoke from a stock Mya Bambino with everything stock except the bowl (everybody know those little bowls are just horrible ) and 1/3 of a stick of Exotica coal. Also, like I say above, the windcover will definitely help aid in the heat management around the bowl so if you want to give the heat a boost, that's always a great thing to have. Keep working with your setup and see how you come out. I'm willing to bet the smoke you are getting is just fine. After all, it's flavour first...then comes the clouds

using the dinky small bowl that came with the hookah gets great flavor and smoke but harshness comes quick about a 15min bowl

It took me a while to start liking that small bowl that comes with those. The trick is to not pack the shisha too tight, leave enough space between the shisha and the foil, and don't use too much heat.

I learned that it is easy to have the holes clog making a difficult draw, so fluff up the shisha some and don't pack too tight.

Because it is such a small bowl, it is easy to have the shisha too close to the foil, so watch out for that.

For heat I use two coconaras and sometimes reduce to 1. Now I get perfect bowls every time with no harshness and no clogging.

The nice thing about the small bowl, is that when your coals are gone, there is no unused wasted shisha left. It seems to be good for 45 minutes to an hour.

Are you using the same bowl that you used with your KM? If not, try it. I have a KM and a nour which I also got from thehookahstore.com and they both smoke the same if you use the same bowl. The bowl that came with my nour has tiny holes and is a very tiny bowl. That might be what will make the difference for you.
