  1. The only afzal flavor i ever smoked was vanilla, and it tasted like wax. I bought an al-waha vanilla cause it was on sale, and the cut was AWFUL. it was like someone took a whole tobacco leaf, soaked it in flavor and threw it in a tub and sold it. Real PITA to work with.

    Acclimation? Really?

    I have to acclimate. I live on the south shore of LI on the water, and every single bowl of tang ive smoked would have smoked like sshit if i didnt. Case in point, its winter and I still need to acclimate.
  3. No. Really! I'm back to stay. My interest in Hookah has resurrected. I missed doing it, and just haven't really had the time. I disappeared from the boards, and was doing my own thing. I've lurked for the last couple of days, and have seen that a lot has changed, a lot has come out in the hookah world. I'm grateful to have this pastime now, and appreciate it even more now. Hurricane Sandy decided that the canal behind my house belonged inside it, and we had 4 feet of water in my basement, which is where my room is. I lost all my furniture, my megatouch arcade machine, and some other little odds and ends; but saved a bunch of stuff, including my hookah stuff, and retro game collection. I have since rebuilt, but started smoking hookah upstairs to destress and get away from my senile grandmother and my OCD-about-cleaning mother. If it wasn't for my super awesome g/f, and my hookah, I don't think I would have made it through without a homicide lol. Long story short, I'm back, and I plan on sticking around some more! Thanks for teaching me everything I know HF, and for broadening my horizons away from HH and Soex :-P

    Hookah Bags?

    I was wondering if there was a carrying case or something for hookahs. I have seen chinese hookahs that have those briefcase like carriers, and I have a sahara smoke bag, but it doesn't really do much in terms of protection, as it's basically cardboard wrapped in nylon. I have a 2011 KM Trimetal, and was wondering if there was a nice hard case available for something of that size, or if you all recommend something else. Thanks!

    Dear Santa,

    Holy shit. I can comment about how beautiful that is, but there are no words. I'm just going to leave it at "Holy shit", and that's that.
  8. I have had moderate to low success getting tang to smoke right. I have started using this method, and it is FOOLPROOF. It works every time, and never burns or gets harsh. I am 3/3 on bowls now, and I have never been THIS successful. Thanks Chris!
  9. Nice find! That is a really nice pipe! I love the design of the hoses!
  10. sorry for the .tiff. Stupid Grab. Next time I'll pay attention to the file format.
  11. Something seems wrong here....
  12. I have a friend on another forum who found this thing, and honestly, I don't know what to think of it other than that its so unnecessary. Also at $39.99, give me my phunnel http://buyhookahflip.3dcartstores.com/

    The Idiot Idea

    [quote name='glider' timestamp='1307330123' post='511820'] [quote name='thehelios' timestamp='1307296479' post='511791'] The only reason I can think of as to why this DOESN'T drip onto the coals is that with a standard bowl, the air pressure is being lowered into the stem. With the flip, since we're always having the air go upwards, it might actually keep pulling the juices UP into the tobacco and this prevents it from seeping down through the foil. I think the best test is to just fill the bowl up with wet tobacco, let it sit for about 15-20 minutes without being smoked and see if it drips then. Can someone try this out? [/quote] i will. as mentioned in the other thread ill be getting this to try in a few days. i have like 5 different brands of tobacco to use and ill be testing out all different techniques and myths about this thing. Alex [/quote] I look forward to the results! One other concern I thought of about this is how top heavy will the hookah become with all that crap on the top of it

    [quote name='INCUBUSRATM' timestamp='1307263566' post='511764'] The thing that puzzles me is the ones who have tried it have said that the juices don't really drip down onto the coals. I just don't understand how this can be. [/quote] Wingardium Leviosa!

    [quote name='INCUBUSRATM' timestamp='1307247393' post='511738'] Oh noes, another Flip thread. What's really funny is it cost $50 when they debuted it. In my opinion, if it doesn't work for Tangiers, then I don't need it. But then again, I'm kind of a Tangiers fanboy... [/quote] Yeah that was my thought, but either way, does it work? haha

    ahahahaha I definitely don't need feedback once I saw that there is a word filter on the title of this topic. I am dying. Well done mushy.
  19. My mom used to care about it. When I got my first pipe, she was all "THATS A NHT PIPE" and made a big stink, not only because of that, but because the shipping label had hebrew writing on it, it apparently shipped from tel aviv and she called me frantic. I used to work at a 7-Eleven, and when she got the package, I got the phone call "WHY IS THERE A PACKAGE WITH ARABIC WRITING ON IT WHO DID YOU PISS OFF AT WORK" AAAAAAAAAAAANYWAY, it has really become a "WHY ARE YOU PISSING YOUR MONEY AWAY ON THAT STUPID SHIT!" thing more than anything else. She has complained about the smell of cigs the handful of times I lit one up in my room, but the hookah, it really makes no difference to her anymore. Sometimes when we have guests and I light coals in the basement, they freak out thinking "somethings burning", but it's just the coco's heating up. Sucks to hear about your shit though, good luck dealing with your folks!

    Which Base?

    I like all three, but if I had to choose, probably the obelisk.

    Shisha Led Lights

    I LOVE LEDs. I got those balls from a vendor when I first started smoking out of my first hookah, and they lasted one session. I would love something thats mellow, to add a nice ambience/effect to it. Nothing like those seizure-inducing flashers, but something that fades, changes colors slowly, etc. What about those LED Bases? tl;dr - Classy, but not tacky as hell
  22. TC! GOGOGOGOGO! I'm outside in the beautiful weather by the water, smoking tang maraschino cherry

    Question About Hookah Part

    [quote name='thehelios' timestamp='1294365543' post='493631'] From my personal experience, it only makes the hookah quieter but that's half the fun! It's truly only useful for people who are terrible at cleaning their hookahs regularly and prevents solid objects from possibly entering the vase so you get no chunks in your mouth. If you take my friends case for example, if he did have a diffuser at the time, he wouldn't have had a wasp in his mouth. There you go kids, that's your lesson for the day: Clean your hookahs real often! [/quote] Derailing this thread for a minute. A wasp? What?
