Set Up- Mya Bohemian. Mya Big bowl. Mya Standard Hose Coals- Jap-Two quarters Smell-Smells delicious. Like taking a bite from a peach. Smoke- Thick and full. Although, about five minutes into the bowl, the peach flavor went away and in came the soap, potpourri flavor. This was not pleasant at all. It seriously felt like I was licking a bar of flower soap. It wasn’t the “rose” flavor either. It had a very flowery soapy taste to it and was suuuuuper disaMFointing. Overall- The smoke was good, clouds where thick, flavor was just not there. What is the point of smoking when I could go into the bathroom and eat soap? 4/10 Ps. I have yet to find a peach tobacco that I enjoy. So I may be a little biased
Pipe-MYA Acrylic, Mya Hose Smell- Smelled the way Mint Chocolate chip Ice Cream Tastes. Bowl Used- Tangiers Funnel Foil- Heavy Duty with two rings or holes. Coal Configuration- Two Coconut Coals to start the bowl off, later switched to Jap easy lites. Flavor/ Longevity- Thick Smoke, The coconut coals started the bowl very well. The flavor was really good. There was a strong chocolate taste as well as a strong mint feeling and taste. We went through the 2 coconut coals, then we put on two Jap coals, then added 2 more Jap. Coals after that we took the scraps from the other two hookahs we were smoking and placed it on this bowl. We were probably smoking this bowl for a good two hours and it was still going pretty well. Granted by that time all we could really taste was mint… In comparison to SB MintChoco, and AW After Nine, I give AW 8/10, SB 8.5/10 and FUM 8.5/10 on par with SB… 8.5/10
Hookah: Mya Stem with unknown Base. Bowl: Funnel Bowl Hose: Mya Saray hose with the long wooden tip. Tobacco: ½ Starbuzz Black Grape, 1/2 Starbuzz Watermelon mixed. Filled to the top of the funnel with a little extra on the sides. Foil: Heavy Duty Reynolds Holes: One medium sized hole in the center, 12 holes around the outer edge. Tobacco Condition: Very Wet and smelled FANTASTIC (like always) Coals: Japanese style, three quarters spaced evenly around the bowl. Smoke: Usually we would wait for the tobacco to warm up before we started puffing, we were all really anxious to see how the bowl smoked so we did not wait and went right to it. I must say only after three or four puffs the bowl was already smoking like a champ! Nice big white clouds. Since we were indoors, the smoke was PERFECT for O blowing contests. Haha Flavor intensity/longevity: The flavor was AWESOME. Not only did it taste great, it lasted a very long time. The flavor never died down and was great until I took the bowl off. In fact, my friend was still trying to smoke it while I was taking it off. But alas, it was time to go home. Time: 1 hour 45 minutes, 5 people smoking, 2 pipes Clean Up: I took the bowl off and there was no gooey mess like there usually would be. There was no molasses driMFing into the tray. When I emptied the bowl into the trash there was still a layer of unused tobacco, which was impressive. All in all, this bowl was very impressive and well worth the money. Compared to any other bowl I give it a 9.50. The -.5 was because more coal dust got into the stem, which would make for more cleaning BUT it is easier to clean coal dust than molasses so only -.5. Perhaps a little direction on how to set up the holes on the bowl would be a great help. Other then that I have NO complaints.
Tangiers- Pottermelon *Mix*- Pear/Watermelon- Pipe- The ones at Tangiers! Smell- I have no idea, I didn’t pack the bowl Bowl Used- I am guessing the regular Tangiers Bowl Foil- I do believe Eric and is peeps use heavy duty Coal Configuration- 4 Canary Coals to start the bowl off Flavor/Longevity- my friends and I decided that they wanted a mix this time… And let me tell you it was amazing!!! Very sweet, Very Delicious!!! For all you Tangy fans out there you need to buy these two flavors and smoke them to make one of the best flavors I have ever smoked!!!! My friends ended up walking out of there with a mix of this.. And they have been smoking it since we got home. Although I didn’t sit and finish this bowl with them *had my own hookahs to smoke* it was mighty tasty. 9.5/10 *lost to .5 because my friend said the flavor died down a little towards the end*
Coal Configuration- Two quarters Chinese/Japanese Coals
Flavor/ Longevity- I really enjoyed this smoke. Even though I really don’t care for berry flavors all that much. To me, it tasted like a mix between Blueberry Raspberry. Very sweet. Good. We were smoking in a group of four with two hookahs going one with Smiley and one with Tangiers. Between these two these two bowls my friends and myself were pretty goofy. The smoke probably last a good hour and a half. All in all it was very good tobacco.
Tangiers Root Beer Hookah: Mya Saray Black “candy jar” Vase with Mya Stem. Bowl: Big Bowl, Unknown Hose: Mya Saray Thick hose. Tobacco: Tangiers Root Beer Foil: Heavy Duty Reynolds Holes: Medium Holes all around the bowl, about 20-25 Tobacco Condition: Very dark, and smelled like those little root beer candies you get at claim jumpers. Looked like good quality tobacco, little-no sticks. Coals: two ¼ Japanese, the packaging stated not to use too much heat with brand of tobacco which was a really nice warning, so thanks for that. Smoke: Started out thin, got a little thinker about 5 minutes later. Flavor intensity/longevity: I must say that the flavor compared to the smell was very disaMFointing. It tasted NOTHING like root beer, or anything for that matter. After about two go around in the circle the hose was hung up and the bowl was taken off to make a new one. Flavor: Unfortunately, I do not think I will be buying Tangiers Root Beer again. I am glad I only ended up buying to 100g pack because I am really considering throwing it away. Perhaps Ill give it one more chance. Hopefully the outcome will be a little different then the first. Time: 20 minutes. This flavor seems like it has great potential but just isn’t there yet. I hear so many good things about Tangiers tobacco I guess I just picked a dud flavor. There will be a Tangiers purchase in the near future.
Well I needed a bit of practice with skinning, IPB, and the forums badly needed something to make em look a bit better, so i decided to start work on the first new theme for the site. This one isn't of my own design, hence the reason im almost done, just a few things including the new posts page, and some bugs to finish.
This theme is based off another, that was for IPB 2.1.x, which means while i might work for 2.2, it might also have quite a large number of problems. So I took it upon myself to go ahead and redo it for 2.2 Now we just wait for me to finish, and also for the higher ups to aMFrove this theme for public release. Expect to hear more within the next day or so.
For those who are impatient, and want to check out what the new theme is going to look like, check out the spolier below Its the theme the new one is based off of.
Well as you might have noticed, one of the major forum layout changes has been the review section. With the new forum BB script, we can do sub-forums. Well after a bit of debating, we decided to split the review sections up into different sub-forums. That is great, and all, but now comes the hard part.
Over the next few days, I will be adding alot of new topics to the review section, as well as editing all of the old topics. The more we split things up, just means more work for me, oh well i love my work
I will be editing each topic, to be more uniform. Each one will have certain pre-set text, along with custom for what the topic is for reviewing. I also have to split up alot of topics, like the coal section. Since there is only 3 topics, which don't really cover the broad range of coals, ill be doing alot of splitting up over the next few days.
Also, please start using the review section as it should be. Post your review in the topic under the right section, then if you want to discuss things, post a new topic in the main review section, with a copy of your post, not too much to ask right
