Exclamation Problems with Hookah

So my friend has this hookah, dnt know which one but its bout 19" with a large Egyptian bowl a round glass base and well the stem has NO VAVLE just a hose grommet... and well when we smoke we encounter 2 problems, one is the juice from the shisha drips to the base, two we cant taste the flavor...

The usual set up is Mix the shisha (Al Fahker Cherry) then sprinkle (never over or under packed it, just did it right thanks to the bids over here) add cold water with ice cubes to the base, lite the charchol use only 2 break them each into 2 piece (Starlight i know they suck that's all he had), give it 5 to 8 mintues to heat up and start smoking...

Clouds are good pretty thick but no fun if we cant taste the flavor pluss no buzzzz help will be nice thankss....

Default Re: Problems with Hookah

I think your two problems are related - you are probably losing a lot of juice through the holes in the bottom, which can definitely kill some flavor. Pick up a Tangiers (my preference) or Vortex funnel bowl, which will keep all the juice in your bowl as you smoke. Also, better charcoal can help, you may be getting the taste of charcoal blocking out your flavor.

Lastly, clean everything thoroughly - I know that a hose with a taste, or rust/crud in the stem can kill flavor really quickly.

Hope it helps, keep us posted.

Yea Buddhizzle is right about your taste. I would try what he has recommended. Now as for a buzz, you may need to try some different shisha. I use AF all the time and never really "feel" anything. If you are specifically looking for a buzz, I would suggest that you try Nahkla or Starbuzz if you have not tried those brands before. You will feel a buzz from those shishas. Hope this helps.
