Default The pull

I've noticed I like a little tighter pull when i'm smoking. Am I alone in this?

Talk to photolinger - he mentions this affinity in one of his reviews, though I'm blanking on which one.

I'm on your side, I like a healthy pull too, makes you feel like you are actually getting something. Anything else is just...breathing.

No sir you are not!! My friend and I were the only ones I knew of until now. I love a tighter pull. Having the open pull makes my throat feel dry and I can taste the smoke better with a tighter pull, also with a tighter pull I can get a full amount of smoke without inhaling, cigar style.

You could also get a hose with a handle that is a small bore to have a tight pull.

For example, the nammors would be even more open if the plastic tip was removed.

It could just simply be water level. Remember the higher the lever the greater amount of gravitational acceleration*mass that you have to fight.

KMs are like breathing, but only if you get the right hose. The hose came with my KM was horriable, you had to pull so hard to get a decent amount of smoke. Not so with my Nammor.

im smoking with my nammor hose all the time. with my nargilem np-620 its the perfect pull ... like breathing
but i used to smoke with a MYA Cloisonné hose, before i got my nammor and i never had a problem with it, although it is much tighter.

easy way to mimic the tight pull taste on a KM is to make a small hole in your lips and pull the smoke right against your tongue.

that's what I generally do, or fill the water higher than it needs to be.

not too tight, just something a little more than a no-force KM w/ Nammor pull. I hear Nours have a present but easy pull, which is what I like

What I was talking about, to clarify this, is that sometimes on the KM, the smoke comes in TOO easy, the slight resistance to the pull reminds you that you arent effortlessly breathing in smoke, but you are smoking a pipe to inhale smoke.

Its hard to explain, but if you try a hookah with just a tad of resistance, you'll know what I mean. The smaller hookahs, and mya's have more resistance than this. The Nour I have has just that bare amount of resistance that I enjoy. The syrian glyph I have has no resistance, the KM i have has resistance with the KM hose, but I think the hose was dying on me or something, with the razan, its as if the smoke is forced down, and not in a good way. Thats why I like the resistance, a little pull means I'll get the right amount of smoke, not too much not too little.

I know what you mean...i think its about control - if you dont have a little pull you cant control how much smoke you are getting.

My issue with the ones with no resistance is just this, I want to inhale for longer than a second before my lungs are full of smoke.

I also have an issue with the ones with too much resistance because I dont want to inhale for like 15 seconds and only get a little bit of smoke.

I thought about it at dinner and this seemed to be the best way to explain it.
Some resistance is good, like a woman, youre more likely to marry one that makes you work for it, but not too hard ( )
