  1. Getting Out Of Hookah Sale!

    I might be interested in that '09 mini (the blue and green one right?). Mind figuring out shipping cost to me here in 89122? Actually, I kinda want those gaskets too haha. Can never have too many of those lol. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  2. See this is what I like about this forum compared to others. Here its: Point made Counter point offered Counterpoint discussed further Everyone is happy and got to share their opinion and no one goes full retard. Other forums a discussion like this would devolve into pointless name calling really quickly. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  3. To the point of blindly following Eric, I would like to mention that I do nothing blindly and that I am similar to Eric in that if I have a question, I research it to death and since I have questions about hookah all the time, I've usually spent some time researching the topics we discuss and like to think I'm well versed. The reason I "follow" Eric's advice is because it's rooted in logical hypotheses that he's had years to test out and prove or disprove compared to my seemingly miniscule 3 years experience with tangiers. Also I would put money down that now bowl of tang noir packed like starbuzz ever smoked better than a bowl at the lounge. Just saying. Also the lotus offers no benefit to the smoking experience and only offers added risk of destruction if property and is therefore a teribble investment. And I'm saying this from personal experience, not from a hive mind perspective. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  4. His knowledge (and degrees thereof) on chemistry topics are why I regard his opinion so highly. Nearly every time I go to the lounge our conversations lead down a road that ends with hour long discussion on the chemical mechanisms regarding something hookah related and almost always involves us researching different properties to make sure we know what's really going on. Also, from a packing/smoking perspective, there is literally no one on earth with more experience packing and smoking tangiers than Eric. So on that front, I tend to trust his advice on the issue and usually have good results when I stop being stubborn and actually listen to him. He didn't just magically gain the reputation out of nowhere after all. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  5. I am fairly certain he gets it pre shredded. Which leads me to believe his tobacco supplier is having issues or maybe just a bad batch that they are selling through. Wither way, the small cut of tangiers means that stems are not a big deal really as long as they are chopped as small as the leaves. Besides, the nicotine is in the stems so if you've built a tolerance, maybe you'll actually get a buzz again. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  6. Shop vac with step down coupler to a small enough size to fit inside the hose port? Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  7. Using Shisha Juice For Vape Juice?

    Ive done it. Buddy of mine left a kilo of fumari white gummi and there was a fuckton of juice left in the tub. Wasn't deadly or anything, just wasn't good at all. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  8. And that's why I think a mouthpiece with a cheap e-cig vacuum switch put into it would be more viable for a low cost method. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk   How would you get the switch to communicate with the heating element? Wireless communication? RF, Bluetooth, Wifi? Unless you had a line going the entire length of the hose connecting to the e-coal. Which I guess would be a suitable answer. For the prototype, a wire. Final production, probably BT or RF. Either works and can be done fairly cheaply. Far less than $100 just for the sensor to go on top of the bowl. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk

  10.   Couldn't you envelop the heating device in the same type of blown glass that's heavily resistant to heat shattering and place that into or on top of the bowl?     Oh absolutely, just saying that using the existing hardware WITH this device would be tough. Very much a possibility I think. Another thing to consider, these devices were probably meant to flash heat "product" fast, then turn off, much like a lighter, so they would definitely require a bit of tweaking to get right. Couple them with an air sensor to activate it and it could work out pretty well.    I'm open to the whole "Put a button on the hose to activate it to keep the cost low" idea.A pressure/vacuum sensitive switch in a mouthpiece may be better. It (the heating element) rests at a lower, constant temperature, then when the vacuum switch in the hose/mouthpiece is activated, the ecoal increases the temperature slightly until the switch is disengaged. That way the bowl would stay hot the entire session and you'd get the "stoking" effect that natural coals have when taking a hit. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk   Why not just add this switch or sensor on the coal itself so it can tell when there is an increase of airflow or pressure coming through the top of the bowl? Because the pressure difference is likely not as big and more accurate/sensitive hardware means higher price. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk

  12. Go and visit Eric and ask if he'll show you. It came up when I mentioned I was looking for a 10 inch silver trim vase for my small nickel nawras and we both realized how small the options are and he said he'd be getting at least a few the next time he ordered bjs.

  13. 75 Dollar Bohos

    Of course I'm broke when this happens haha. Hopefully they will last a few weeks til payday. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  14. Leila Portable Hookah

    I must say, as much as I love my Syrians and Turks and kms and whatnot, my Leila is a little champ. I am very sad that my bowl for it broke and replacement ones are no longer available. I'm not saying you'll use it every day, but for camping/hiking, it can't be beat. Especially if you are backpacking and don't want to carry a full size hookah. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  15. There are some nice bj bohos that have silver accents. Eric was showing me the catalog he was ordering them from and there are some REALLY nice looking ones, vendors just don't order them. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
