I prefer the taste but what i have noticed recently that if i get big clouds i get more flavour, i think for some brands one goes with the other and you don't have to comprimise what you want, i noticed this espically with starbuzz

I mainly smoke at work (in my home-all day) in front of my pc where I work and clouds are only a hassle. Though taste is the most important, then length of time smoked, clouds are nice as 3rd best.

I'm always looking for a combination between a good flavour and nice clouds. If the clouds are big but the flavour sucks I don't like the session. If the clouds suck but the flavour is great I still think it is not a good session. I just want both.

From my own personal experience, big clouds from hookah have barred the temptation from doing other things, Im not trying to get banned here just putting in my input... If it werent for hookah, I might not have a job right now... I think thats the best way to put it. It may be because of an oral fixation... The cloud you get from shisha completely trumps that of cigarettes and other paper products, so it helps to soothe the oral fixation that people need from those and other types of things.

thats just my .02... I may be wrong.

Smoke is fun as are big clouds. Guys try this: smoke a bowl of your cloudiest shisha( like HF) after shaving and let the smoke cool your face. It's a relaxing feeling and may leave a hint of flavour with your aftershave!

Thanks for creating a thread like this, because i have a cloudy problem

The thing with me, is when i smoke hookah, i dont feel "complete" without a big cloud! I dont want big clouds to show off, but about a very very strange feeling i have when im not making big clouds! I want as big clouds as they can get, only then i feel that i made i "complete" draw! Sometimes i even stop the session if the current setup dont suits me! Anybody else has this strange "behavior" ?

Most of the time too it seems that not having at least decent clouds is a sign that theshisha isn't smoking well too

I really like big clouds and flavor. As long as you are able to manage the heat correctly, I don't see why you have to sacrifice either of the two.

clouds are a fun extra. i'll go for flavor over them of course. i think clouds can make a session more entertaining, especially with friends.

I like the clouds because It's just satisfying to know that along with all that flavor is something physical that can be seeing, it's a satisfying feeling when you take a nice long draw, and nice white thick smoke rolls out of your mouth, it's like biting into a crisp apple, you get more of an enjoyable experience out of it if you get that satisfying crisp snap and crunch when you bite into it.
Thats Why I like nice clouds.

hookah is just what hip liberals are into now, just like it was cigarettes in the 50's, in 10 years, these same yuppie liberals are going to do all they can to preach against it, its just the way things are.

but ya smoke is fun especially just to watch.

its only a small part of what I want in a good tobacco, but its still a part. Whats the point of smoking without smoke?

i like flavor over clouds but i find that if i have huge clouds i usually get more flavor (to a point and depending on shisha). citrus mist and blue mist kinda piss me off cause i get good flavor but its not uber strong and not a lot of smoke, an ok amount but not clouds, once i get it to clouds the flavor gets messed up.

it wont crack your base, if you pour boiling water in a room temp vase you have a chance of it, like if you make tea in a nice glass cup you are supposed to pour the water over a spoon so that the spoon pulls some of the heat out.

140-160 * is plenty warm and if it cracks your vase you either a pulled it out of a really deep freeze and poured the water on or the vase was about to crack any way

i would bet money that the thermal shock was not the real cause of it, there was probably a microscopic crack or uneven stress in the glass, or it might have gotten bumped. also the out side could have gotten cold water on it from the sink or something that caused a more extreme thermal range that might have let it crack

as long as you slowly heat the glass you will not have any issues

[FONT=Verdana]I am in it for the flavor I don't really care if I get big clouds or not. But I am not going to lie to you I still like to see them when I smoke. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Also I find that when I smoke with people that don’t smoke very often that all they really look for are big clouds. I even smoke with a guy once that REALLY angry when he couldn't produce the size of clouds he was looking for, and I haven't smoked with that guy since.[/FONT]
