My friend has the tongs she got with like a little 13" or 20" hookah.
Now THOSE suck...

Haven't had the problem with the ones I use. I have the ones the hookah bar I used to work at uses. They are decent size and the can even grip large natural logs.

Dropping coals is just part of the hookah prep process sometimes eh...I've done it. Live and learn.

I stick my finger down in the middle and it spreads them out further. Then pull it out when they are around the coal. No problem. The tongs are a little small for 40mm coals but with that method it works fine. Though the problem I have is squeezing too tight and they just crumble. Especially with Akhlas even the blown coals didn't just fall apart like those.

what type of tongs are you using? the mya ones look good but aren't functional. the jumbo tongs that most vendors carry work well. the traditional syrian bird tongs look great, the grip isnot the best but the are great for breaking charcoal, lump not instant or cubes (it'll just smash those) like when you have huge pieces of nat coals that need to be broken but ar hard, those tongs have a "beak" that will break tehm apart.

take those mya tongs and bend them towards the end so they pick up nats without killing your carpet.

or throw them away. you know, whatever tickles your fancy

Got these barbeque tongs from the dollar tree that are great for it. We used them for a while when we couldn't find our hookah tongs. You know just kitchen tongs.

the tongs that came with my hookah from a smoke shop sucked. so i just went to my local hookah bar and asked the owner for one of his. he always hooks it up. once i didnt go there for about 2 years and the next time i went there he was surprised and jokingly saying "wow you're alive!" also, he had bumped up his prices cause he renovated the place but he gave me the price i use to pay with a free refill. =)

the best deal on good tongs are right here:

http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=1084

they are under a dollar a pair, they are big, but not huge. i bought 5 pairs for $5.00, instead of buying 1 for $5 at some other site. yeah they have black spots on them, but seriously these tongs are so perfect for natural shaped and ql coals.
