Default Windcovers? Do they make a difference??

hello, i am from England where hookah windcovers are rare, i was wondering whether they make a difference and if so what differences they make? e.g thicker clouds. Also could you recommend which windovers to get for a 32" hookah. thank you .

Makes heat management easier. Makes sessions last longer with less heat. Allows you to use less coal.

Do not get a bowl with a windcover lid, antyhing other than that is fine. Or just make one out of a can.

A windcover is money well spent. As bradedup said you use less coals and your session lasts slighly longer. It pays for itself in no time.

hit the nail on the head.

Windercovers aren't that hard to get hold off if you pop down to edware road al mustafa has loads.

Windcovers save on coals which is the main reason i use one, and if you use a windcover with the same amount of coals you will get thicker clouds

The limiting factor on cloud size is the shisha. A shisha will make bigger and bigger clouds the more heat you add, however, at some point u will burn it. A windcover is just another way to add heat to your bowl by basically preventing the loss of heat and redirecting heat onto the bowl. Allowing you to use less coal to achieve the same smoke.

I wish I could find an extra large windcover to go over my phunnel on my KM. Anyone know if there are any available? I can make one, but I kinda want one that looks like it goes with the hookah.

you can make a extension for the windcover using a old starbuzz tin, i saw a tutorial on here, and take the sticker off and it looks great

Homemade windcovers? i dunno.. I've never used one, but they are probably pretty much the same, so i bet it would work just fine.

Oh! I have a question, i'm a fan of graffiti and let's say i make a can wind cover, do you think if i spray paint the outside of the can with some gold paint the heat would react with the paint and give off toxic fumes? Or am i being too paranoid =D?

Yea bro, dont do this, my mom is the artsy type and thought it would be cool to spray paint on top of our grill, then it let off fumes that could make you really sick. I guess there are those high temp paints, but still, its not worth the risk, just make one out of a sweet can like a big monster or something

I am sorry guys but I have to disagree ... windcovers usually ruin my hookah sessions ... I don't use them unless I am smoking outside and its windy.

I love my windcover. A must for good heat management if you don't like lighting/burning extra coals. I just don't like to get coals going every 30' or so.
