i had used it at my friends before i found out it was the replacement and it seemed like the shisha was getting more heat than the HD.

tonight i have been double foiling and its been easier to heat manage, but it seems double is a little too thick. maybe ill just get normal from now on and double it or jstu buy an industrial sized box of food service foil that is like the HD or even thicker

I think they still have HD at least they do here. Heavy Strength I've used also 1 layer with no problems.

when i went grocery shopping before i came back to school i went to the commissary on base and their whole shelf was heavy strength or regular with no blank spots so idk, usually the military commissary is pretty well stocked

maybe its something Reynolds is trying out we just have a faster supply here since IIRC Reynolds is based out of VA

Noticed the same thing. Haven't had any differences or problems with it. It's definitely a little thicker.

Some of the precut foils for hookah are really thick foils if thats what you like, but remember, unlike condoms, it wont rip if you double bag it...

Wow I just noticed that all of your hookahs are different models but all the same style in each category! Except the stargate... he's the loner.

Sorry for the off-topic, i thought that was pretty funny.

Anyways, the local Dan's near my house carries HD still.

ive used reynolds heavy duty, heavy strength and super strength. all of these foils are good but i found out with heavy strength it would take a little longer for the smoke to get going and with super strength, even longer lol. good thing is the foil doesnt sink down due to the weight of the coals.

i always hate when im smoking at a friends house and they have regular foil and the weight of 3 coconaras on my phunnel sinks down making it a very hard pull

Dollar tree foil. Some cheapo brand but it actually had the words HD on it and if you double it you get almost no heat. You really must use single layer. Though I am thinking I may change that with golden Al Fakher.

and ya fezzik i noticed af golden doesnt like as much heat as the normal line, but its just a touch less

Damn.. I've been wondering what the hell has been up lately.. I figured they just changed the name, but now that I think about it, since I've been using the heavy strength, it takes FOREVER to get the bowl going..

OMG I always thought that when you guys said "Heavy Duty" you meant "Heavy Strength." Always I thought it was the same, so I have been using Heavy Strength this whole time without even knowing...damn

i was going to grab my calipers out of my tool box at school to check the 2 but then realized that the blades are not on each other but side to side so it wouldnt give an accurate reading. maybe if i took 2 pieces of sheet metal and put the foils in between i could get a reading to see if they are different or not, i will have to try that later this week

I use the Publix brand which seems to be perfect using a single layer.
