    hookah help!

    Well 95% of hookah is from the bowl up. You might want to test for leaks in the hookah itself. Set it up like you would without the bowl. Put your hand over the top of the stem to seal it and take a pull on the hose if you get any air start tracking it down.
  3. Sorry to here it Riv! I'm single now too, lost my kids and in a depression that would kill most. But I am here today. Hit me up if you need anything!
  4. Hello, so i recently got a shika scandallo. im using a vortex bowl. i broke the bowl it came with when i took it all out of the box sadly. but my problem is i can not for the life of me get it to smoke good.i have tried fumair, al fahker, starbuzz, trifecta, fantasia and haze. iv probly packed and tried 15+ bowls at this point while the result very by each brand the one constant is just that. nothin is constant. the smoke i get is ether thick but insanely harsh. or really weak. i have packed it all every way i can think of. different coals. diferent hole patterns. nothin seems to fully fix it. i put 3 coals. slightly hanging over the edge. after about 10 mins. smokes starts to get thin. so i move them in slightly and it smokes good for 5 ish mins then gets really harsh. i have to constantly move my coals to get it smoking good but then it gets harsh again. every time i stop and make a new bowl i look at my old one and never is my shisha high enough to get burned on the foil. also when i change my coals no matter where i put them my shisha taste burnt. for 5 mins or so then goes by to being o k but i lose a lot of flavor. i know my hookah is air tight. i can not figure this out. i love this hookah and i miss being able to just throw my coals and relax. but i find my self working to much just to get decent smoke. any tips or advice would be great!! note iv tried several different brand coals as well all nature of course

  6. I learned something this past weekend regarding patents. I was at a vape shop that also blows glass. I inquired about possibly getting scali mods made, but was worried about copyright. The artist said that in most creations like the scali mod or phunnel bowl, it in reality is an art and practically unenforceable patentent. He explained, with scali mod as example, that just adding a swirl, or a dab of color, makes it a completely different product from patent product because of artist rights. I think this is what you are seeing with all these various phunnels on the market. The artists know the looseness of the law and shape it to their favor. (off topic for those that see: sorry I disappeared guys. Life is chaos. I'm usually on Clash Of Kings day and night now as a leader of a group, helps keep me sane. I'm single now, disabled, fighting for SSI, and living with my parents at 31)

    Mat for shisha

    Mat for shisha

    Could anyone tell me where I can get a fireproof mat to put under my shisha pipe
  10. Earlier
  11. It was originally designed by Tangiers and Called a Super Chief. It is originally designed to be packed all over so it's a combination phunnel and Egyptian. But I typically just pack the phunnel portion and smoke that way to save on shisha. If it's that harsh add more tobacco or less heat. Cut your cocos in half
  12. Hey guys! New to smoking hookah, and i have a question about the bowl I got. https://imgur.com/a/9i3wdc9 https://imgur.com/a/HN2EhlT So, is this a funnel, or an egyptian style one? And do i only pack it to the "bump" in the middle, or all the way up? Also, can you guys tell if its ceramic or clay from the pics? I read that ceramics not that great and my first two sessions burnt the tobacco a bit. Used thick foil designed for grilling and two BlackCoco natural coal cubes and followed all the guides out there. Placed them on the edges and moved them about every 10mins or so.

    Best Hookah Hose?

    I apologize for bumping this old thread...just my experience... I have the dhose and the cloud micro hose like this by BudPro https://coolerexp.com/best-hookah-hose-review/ and I think the micro hose is better in every way: the silicone is a lower durometer making it more flexible and less prone to tipping your hookah when you pass it, it has a 2 piece handle so you can select the length you want, the handle is anodized aluminum so it lasts long and doesnt ghost, and the silicone is coated so it doesnt pick up every particle it comes in contact with. If you just want different though the dhose is great. I had been using them for the last 4 years until I got my micro. I had this request from a customer in Germany looking for a stylized, yet realistic and slightly sinister looking, volcano shape designed to be rested on a table and smoked with a hose. The hose proved to be the most time consuming. I started off being completely stymied as to how to go about doing it, and ended up going to a head shop to see what they had. Gagging on incense and God only knows what else, I left with a hookah hose to see if I could use some of it in this project. It ended up being a non-starter though. On top of the stink of incense that simply would not leave the hose no matter what, upon disassembling it I found that the hose is nothing more than some spiral wound brass wire with Cling-Wrap on the outside, and a piece of fabric secured by wrapping string along the spiral of the wire. Add some cheap-ass molded plastic thingies for the ends, and there you go. Oh, and the stink. I unleashed an unholy mix of incense and various smells and things when I took it apart. My nostrils have *still* not recovered. I ended up homebrewing the entire thing from start to finish, with a little help from McMaster-Carr and Mr. Metal Lathe. The idea struck me as being so cool that I've got a second one in the works, and I'm going to try and hang on to it long enough to take it to Richmond to show off.
  14. My GF just saw this and laughed. We smoke on our front porch and she says no way, at least not during daylight hours.
  15. Well, I found one solution though not a particularly elegant or graceful one. Got one of these from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073W95VJP/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 and it fits hookah and hoses. As sort of a left handed bonus it functions as a purge valve if the unused receptacle is left open, without a hose. There are a bunch of different vendors selling similar and this one is not special... probably just the cheapest one I saw, don't remember. I guess for now I will get three more of them. But I will have created a monster... an 8 hose hookah? OctoHookah? I will probably end up 3D printing something but I just got too much going on right now. Alternately I might just fill up three hose grommets with silicone and let them cure, and use them to plug the other receptacles. (uncured common hardware store silicone has a lot of acetic acid in it and will smell and taste like vinegar for a couple of days.) The more I think about it though, the more I wish KM would just make a multi with them already built in or included.

    Roasted DIY Shisha Recipe

    Last post - you can do that. Half and half tobacco glycerin ist good if your tobacco is wet enaugh. Hot Honey at least is good and to kill the honeys piss peak you can add a hint of blackstrap melasses

    Liqour flavors

    Hey I searched google for myself and what the first entry was is that conquito is some kind of longdrink or how you like to call it, a mix of coconut rum vanilla and (condensed) milk - mix up. Greets
  18. Hi, I've searched google and didn't find any results, I was at a hookah lounge recently and they had a mix called coquito with a milk base. Anyone have suggestions on what they might've mixed to get the flavor?
  19. They don't really make them. Multi hose option for me is only Mya Saray. There are plugs to put in unused hose ports but not check valves. If I find a vendor with them, I will let you know.
  20. Hi everybody. New member here, first post. I just bought a 4 hose Kahlil Mamoon hookah and I am thinking it would sure be nice to have appropriate caps or plugs for unused hose receptacles, and also check valves to eliminate the bother of thumbing the hose tips. Now, I KNOW there are a lot of these hookahs out there, and I am pretty sure I am not the first person to want these little conveniences, so I am guessing that someone, somewhere, is selling exactly what I am looking for. I googled and found a few possibilities, yeah, but mostly they look like they will definitely not work for KM or other traditional type hookahs. I know the stock advice is probably going to be to stick with a one hose KM but me and GF prefer separate hoses cause we get too lazy to pass a single hose once we are well into a bowl. I figured, if two, then why not four hoses? Guests and all. I know the Mya appliances are of good quality and are great smokers, but I just prefer the look of the KM and similar hookahs. I would rather buy four ball check valves than a whole nother hookah and anyway I like this one just fine except for the lack of modern convenience, which ought to in no way detract from the appearance. Actually I think it would be kind of nice if KM made a multi hose hookah with removable check valves. It would definitely increase their market share. Hope I am not comitting some unpardonable offense with that idea... So, anybody got a source for what I am wanting? Or will I have to make my own?
  21. Well I remember Baja a long time ago, Loved the wooden boxes, but I have seen rumblings... looks like they are coming back!
  22. No experience with dobacco. Orange and Kiwi is always a nice mix if the kiwi has a twist of mint in it like I guess... it will be a really nice mix. Baileys and Strawberry should do well also!
  23. - golden peach -strawberry kiss -orange mandarin -kiwi chill -ice bubblegum -rockmelon -blueberry -royal mint -blu magic -tropical manggo -maracuja -white grape -banana -honeydew melon -baileys -cappucino -coco blue -freshwinter -ice apple -strawberry icecream -sex on the beach -tequila -whiskey Thats flavours all i have, thanks
