Default If you ever lose your ball bearing.

Smash open one of those Yomega Xbrain YoYos, they have 4 ball bearings inside. So you take a hammer smash the hell out of the side with the bearings in it, and push the four of them out. Save three used one, it fit perfectly into my Comet.

Lol, she got that from me when I sold it to her . My original started to get corroded almost immediately after I got it, and I used an airsoft BB in its place, which worked perfect. You can get them at any sporting goods store or even Wal-Mart. Sam, PM me your address an I'll pop a few in an envelope for ya.

The BBs are 6mm, but I don't think it matters very much. As long as you have something that is round and covers the hole in there while being small enough to move around freely, you are good. I've even heard of people rolling up tiny little balls of foil and putting them in there with great success. Thankfully, hookah smoking is not rocket science.

HAHA you so funny

but seriously i don't think air soft bbs will work. Perhaps the wally mart specials which are uber cheap plastic. The bbs i use are high grade and while they are nice and smooth they smell like petroleum or some other chemical. Dont think i would want that in my system.

Well, I guess my KM Hafa has been passed around more then a drunk sorority chick at a frat party, but the history of it originated with ioannisds and he put in one of those soft BBs and it works like a champ, plus you don't have to worry about it rusting. I take the release valve apart every time I clean any of my hookahs, because otherwise the ball bearing rusts to the relief port (if it sits around long enough).

Anyway, no smell, and seals up nicely and functions as it should ... if not better then a steal BB!

Not really worth the shipping for such a small item ... and the plastic BBs seem to work great!

... I would rather use the plastic BBs, to be honest, since they won't rust and are light.

after I lost my original bearing(which was crappy to begin with), I tried plastic airsoft bbs but they didnt seem to work well in the Comet. But the ones from the yo yo worked SO well for me. Smash open a yoyo you wont regret it.
