  1. Howdy folks, I'm back. It's been a long time. I took a 3 year break from hookah because I had a kid. I sold/give away all my stuff and I'm planning to get back into the habit later this summer. I used to have a Fumo Tank which was my favorite hookah. Easy to clean, good smoke, never harsh and super quiet. I loved that thing. I was going to pick up another but I notice they have the mini now. Since it's mostly me and my husband smoking, I figured that would be better. I was wondering though if anyone has the mini and can comment on it? Or at as tried the full size and the mini? The OG tank held a fair amount of water even though it had a short stem compared to traditional hookahs. I think thats why it didn't get harsh quick. With the smaller size I wondering if that would still hold true. thanks in advance
  2.   Thanks! I hope folks are still around by then.  :)

    Maybe It's Just Me...

      There definitely feels like there is some price matching, anti compete going on.  Honestly, I think started noticing this when hookahcompany was sold.

    New Mya Saray Pipe

    If it had a coal cover built in this would have been a great desktop/gaming hookah.  
  5. I quit smoking hookah because I'm growing a human.  I quit the forum because I quit smoking hookah.  Due to space and wanting to right by family, I do not see hookah being part of my life again for some time.  Maybe in the future I can get out to a lounge but in regards to home smoking, not seeing a place (or space) for it.

    Maybe It's Just Me...

    Yeah, it does feel that hookah is falling out of favor and e-cig/vape is going way up.  I guess it is the nature of things.  I still want hookah to be part of my life but i just don't think its going to be feasible with my soon to be growing family.     In regards to the prices - holy hell Chris, you're not kidding.  A friend pinged me over the weekend because he's wanted to pick up a new hookah as a last hoorah (he's staring a family next year) and we did some shopping - man, hookahs be expensive! And its not even the high end ones - its all.  My first hookah was a all brass syrian for 80 in 2009.  I got a KM chiller a year later for 75.  Everything is easily over a $100 now. Crazy town.     I admit I don't get on the forum like I use to just because I haven't been smoking.  I miss you guys and I miss the life.  *sniffle*
  7. I'm so sorry to hear this; I hope everything works out soon.     thanks for sharing this - totally donated.

    Yet Another Glass Pipe

    I have a fumo tank and I love the thing.  I think that inline style is just a better design for glass because this way I'm not paranoid about it getting tipped over.  The glass uprights with the grommets and multiple parts just do not look stable/safe to me.

Lots of fruity flavors that were hard to pinpoint down completely. Cherry was definitely the strongest followed by some citrus flavors; orange maybe some lemon, hint of lime there too. Reminds me of del monte fruit cocktail snack minus the pears. It loses points for the over abundance of juices. This was wetter than normal. the 50g box was maybe 40g tobacco.
  10. So I'm recently preggers and as such I have put my hookah ways on hold for awhile.  My husband still smokes though. I haven't really seen any information on this but is it a problem if I'm in the same room that he is smoking in? Or what about in clothes, hair etc?  Also - lighting of the coals, can that still be done indoors? thanks in advance.  
  11. I had gotten a Shishavac about 1.5 years ago and sadly it's just taking up space now.  It was great when I lived in a house but it just isn't convenient (no counter space) in my apartment.  Works great for cleaning pipes and hoses.  If you use natural coals the automated timer is not long enough and will need to for approx. 1.5 times.  Perfect for wood coals though.  I can post pictures next week if there is any interest.     -b.
  12. Crown Classic v2.0 - $20 Crown Classic micro - $25 each come with a gasket. Get both for $40   wand style tip.  Was a FB special  $20   large orb tip.  It's like blowing bubble gum.  :) $25   v1 gamer tip.  $14   v1 hose.  Tube is food grade.  Tips are both amber glass.  $18   All prices include shipping.  PM me if interested. 
  13. thanks everyone for the congratulations.  Will need to make a separate hookah room after tiny human is born. So another question came up, what about herbals?  Not that is my thing but if that was smoked in the house that gets rid of the nicotine risk but there's still the coals.  We use naturals (coconaras) is there still a lot of CO there? 
  14.   it is now and its awesome.  :D
  15.   yeah its not close proximity - its more like same level of the house.  I will probably ask him to move things outdoors or garage though just play it safe.

    Wts: Shishavac $160 Shipped

    finally took pictures.  I'm moving again so selling this soon would be great.  Unit itself.    Accessories.  The filters are in decent condition.  I don't think they need replacing.  I did replace the grate for the basket so that's good to go.    Comes all packed in the original box with manual
  23. http://youtu.be/oM4phmVRlJ0   This popped up on the H-S twitter.  I don't really know what to make of a silcon bowl - that can't be right, right?    confuzzled = me  
  24. So I have one of these: http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-1067-premium-hookah-charcoal-holder.html   However sometimes it pops like a cookie sheet does in the oven when the coals are on it.  This is a bit problematic for my feet, the carpet and the dog.  What are other folks using for charcoal carriers?  Way back when I was using a ceramic teacup but eventually that split in two due to heat over time.
