  1. Figured I would start a "What flavor are you vaping right now?" thread... I'm currently smoking Elite Vapor's Rockabilly, in a custom 80%VG/20%PG, which is just amazing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is the site actually working now?

    I did the mass email thing a few years ago to try and revitalize the place. It didn't really do much. At this point I don't think there's much anyone can do to get it as active as it was back in the day.

    TexasHookah bought it from Adam. Site works just fine, but not at all active. I check back every once in a while for nostalgic purposes.

    How To Vape Like Hookah

    NOTE: I will edit this over time, as things change in the industry so much... You'll see "EDIT" notes throughout. If you're like me, then you think it'd be awesome to have "hookah on the go." Well, with vaping, that is possible. Forget the "e-hookah" products you see. Those are junk. Here's what you need to emulate hookah with a vaporizer:   -A good mechanical mod. Go for the clones, as they're made very well. Only buy the authentic mods if you want the bragging rights. Or, you can get a good variable voltage/variable wattage regulated device, such as the Innokin MVP 3; Sigelei 50W, 100W, 150W; or IPV2 or IPV3. Then there's tons of custom modders who make box mods that you can look into, such as www.minemodz.com. I own two from them- the dual 18650 MOSFET box, and the 120W Raptor box. Both are great. Many options out there for regulated devices... -A good RTA or RDA (rebuildable tank atomizer or rebuildable dripping atomizer). Look up videos on YouTube on how to build coils for whatever atomizer you decide to buy. -Ohm reader to test your builds on. -Samsung 25r batteries (I wouldn't get the Sony batteries right now, as there are just too many fakes out there). -Nitecore battery charger (it won't kill the battery, as it stops charging when it's done- makes batteries last longer). -A wide-bore drip tip or atomizer that comes with a wide-bore tip. This will allow an open draw similar to hookah. -A good e-juice with a higher percentage of vegetable glycerin, and low nicotine to reduce throat hit, but have some major vapor production. More on this below...   Now I've just recently gotten into mech mods and dripping, but man have I loved it so far. I just don't really have time for hookah anymore, with working all day and hardly having any time before I have to be in bed to do it all over again. Mainly been smoking hookah on the weekends. Since I can vape at work, I figured why not. It allows me to hookah at work, in the car, where ever. Not only is it more convenient, but it is also cheaper I believe with the rising costs of hookahs and hookah tobacco. EDIT: I no longer smoke hookah... vaping is just too easy, and since my son was born, I just couldn't find the time to smoke hookah anymore!   As for the e-juice, you need to get something with a higher percentage of vegetable glycerin. Most juices have four components- Propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and the flavoring. Some juice makers add alcohol, water, etc., but I don't mess with any of that. The PG and nicotine increase the throat hit from my experience, whereas the VG increases your vapor output. I have found that the perfect balance is 80VG/20PG (or Max VG), 3mg nicotine, and 2 extra flavor shots, since the VG hinders the flavor. I get most of my juice from MountBakerVapor.com, since they let you customize everything, and because their prices start at $4.99 per 15ml, which is pretty much the best price that I've found thus far for a decent quality juice. If you're lucky, you can find a local shop that will customize like this for you. I found one right down the street from my work that will do whatever I ask, which is awesome (EDIT: This shop closed, so I now order online exclusively). EDIT: Now I get all my juice from www.vapewild.com, as MBV went downhill in quality. Fruit Hoops, Cowboy Cooler, Smurf Cake, Fruity Freeze, Strawberry & Cream... all amazing. I order their juice in Max VG, extra flavoring. Can't beat the price!   I personally have been rocking a Nemesis Clone, TOBH Atty v2 RDA or Fogger v4 RBA (Depends on if I feel like dripping or not), rotating 2 Sony batteries (I always keep one on my Nitecore charger), Vapelyfe drip tip (thanks again Cody), Temco 28g kanthal wire (look it up on eBay, I paid $8 for 100ft), and organic cotton for wicking. Nowadays I only use my MVP 2 to test my builds on, to make sure nothing blows up in my face. I got literally everything off of eBay to get me into mech mods. Cost about $120 total. That's cheaper than the price of most hookahs these days! EDIT: Now I use box mods from Mine Modz (www.minemodz.com). Infinite CLT v2 Plus is my go-to for dripping, I have two, one for each of my box mods. I also swapped to 26g kanthal wire (again around $8 on eBay from Temco). And for cotton, I recommend picking up the $5 rolled cotton from CVS Pharmacy. Will last you years.   I love how vivid the flavors can be with vaping. Don't get me wrong, I still love my hookahs and smoke them on the weekends. But vaping is just a different experience that I also greatly enjoy. Not to mention the ability to vape in the car, at work, etc. Also going to be very handy when I become a father later this year.   Any of my fellow vapers on here have anything to add, please feel free to do so. I had a lot of trouble finding info on emulating hookah with vaping, so I figured this could be a good resource for it so it can help others.

    Hey everyone!

    Jello! It's nice to hear an update, Shawn!

    What Shisha set up to buy?

    UK uses metric system so you'll have to be sure you buy a hookah that is compatible. Seriously though, grab a Mya Saray QT and call it a day.

    Ways to make thick smoke

    Apply more coal? Also, be sure your bowl is packed properly, holes pattern is good, etc... There's tons of tutorials, guides, how-tos, etc. on here and elsewhere on the net.

    Hydrogen O2 portable hookah

    Mya Saray QT was the bomb dot com back in the day, and they were only what, 12-14 inches tall? Very interesting pipe, would love to see more pics, especially of it in action.
  11. Yes, yes it did. I think all the nails are finally in the coffin, just one is still sticking up a bit...

    Review - TexasHookah, KM Grape Berry

    The way we have it set up is, vendor reviews go here: http://www.hookahforum.com/forum/17-vendor-reviews/ and tobacco reviews go here: http://www.hookahforum.com/forum/129-new-and-improved-tobacco-reviews/ Once you have placed your reviews in the proper place, we can delete this thread for you. Thanks.
  17. I got your message in my email, but it doesn't show up when I get on the forum... Either way, most of the stuff you mentioned in your message we already have. Not sure why you're having trouble finding it, though.

    Haze-Do you like it?

    That's because product reviews don't belong in vendor reviews. Vendor Reviews are for retailers/vendors who sell products. You should find the proper thread for Haze under the Tobacco Reviews. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
