Default Nahkla and Phunnel Bowl

I recentely just got a phunnel bowl and i havent been able to use it til today ( was out of tobacco). So i ran to the store and bought nahkla strawberry and peach. Im not a fan of nahkla but thats all they had and was desperate. So i packed it well, made 3 circles of holes and one bigger hole in the middle as i was getting no suction. So my question is how do the two work together? cuz i was getting little to medium smoke. With 3 3Kings coals. Smelled amazing, Not Harsh at all but tasted awful, with a pistachio aftertaste. It was my first time using it, i will try again tmr with a regular bowl to see if theres any difference.

Your Thoughts on it? I should mention that the Nahkla tobacco was dry. Little bit of juice, but not like al-fakher ( what im used to)

I smoke nakhla from a phunnel myself. same set-up as you but with natural coals. you will definitely taste those 3kings. as for the smoke, you won't get huge clouds from nakhla. after all...smoking a hookah is about flavor, not humongous clouds.

I use a funnel for the mizo lines and DA on occasion, but for standard Al Nakhla I find a small Egyptian is just fine.

Your right but big clouds are like a bonus, besides the Nahkla had a bad aftertaste

Without the hole in the middle it was impossible to pull. I must have put the foil too tight.

Choose better flavors! Its not the bowl or your setup. Strawberry and Peach need some help in the flavor dept.

i think your foil may be trying to get sucked into the hole. Make sure your drum head foil is level.

sometimes I'll use a toothpick to life up the foil because the coals will weigh down the foil covering up the bowl's opening. When this happens you get no suction, regardless of the brand of tobacco you use.

Remember that Nakhla works, it tastes fine and even great to most people, and is very cheap.
