Default The new KM bowls

I've searched around the forums and have yet to see a thread on the new KM bowls that are coming with the hookahs.

Let me tell you, they're pretty sub-par. They're wide, which is nice, but they're extremely shallow, so putting any decent amount of shisha in there will give you nooo foil clearance and you'll get hardcore scorched.

Discuss?

I didn't really know they were "new", huh... The only good thing about a KM purchase now is the pipe itself. The hoses suck, the bowls suck, and in a lot of cases the grommets suck, and sometimes the bases suck really bad (break easily). The brass piece stems are solid.

I never use a KM bowl for anything, I don't even have them anymore, after owning 8 KM's over the years. They have always been pretty crappy. The Mod bowls are much better.

I assumed they were new, I didn't remember the bowls that came with the hookah being this bad.

But then again, I can't really remember where I acquired the clay bowl I've been using for a while now anyway.

Egyptian bowls vary as they are completetly handmade. They are made on a pottery wheel by hand and they could be from really big to really small. I find that the smallest the bowl the best results i get. I have a (aproximately) 5g bowl that i use all the time

Bowls that come with the KM pipes usually have a few certain characteristics; they are taller than normal, very shallow, the bowl isn't rounded, and there's a flange-like thing near the bottom of the bowl (kinda of like on the tips of the downstems).

i can get around an hour out of 5 grams of shisha. A 50g sampler can get me through at least 8 sessions. With right heat managment i can get 3 sets of bulk coal on a 5-6g bowl which is about an hour. I use really small pieces of coal like the Egyptians do.
I should post a guide on my setup sometime

Egyptians know what they are doing. I trust them.
my "hookah teacher" was an egyptian guy that worked at a local middle-eastern cafe/restaurant. he tought me a few of his tricks and building on those since then.
One of my favourites is for fixing harsh/burned flavour and works really well on Egyptian bowls.
My order is out of customs today so i should have it by monday and am gonna try to post a vid of me packing and starting the narguile using my setup.

you are right, the latest gen of KM's came with some real crap bowls imo. Most smokers have been upgrading to a phunell but I still think you should be able to get a decent bowl with that type of rig. There are large Egyptian clay bows that aren't too large and that are imo perfect for these KM's. I suggest buying those as they are in the $4-$5 range, same diameter but deeper.
