  1. So guys here is whats up alot of you know that i bought myself a 628 for my Birthday, i was wondering, for those of you that have an elmas/use the standard male clay bowl how you pack it/how many coals you use. I am having some troubles, i mean with my KM i can manage the heat fine with a variety of bowls. On the elmas though i seem to be having more problems. I have tried fluffy, mid and tight packing for Nak and Tang w/either two or three halves of CCN, but it always seems harsh. When i can't take it any longer i pull the foil off and only the top layer of Mu'assel is crusty, the lower parts are still moist but not as much as before. So my deductions are either the unglazed bowl is having some effect, the bowls smallness is just causing shorter sessions than what i am used to (usually using a small tang phunnel), or i am using to much heat. Thanks guys. ~Headhunter

    Haze Intensity  Hookah: KM butterfly Bowl: Shallow SS Bowl Screen/Foil: Single Layer HD Foil Hose: SS Hose Coals: CoCo Nara Base Liquid: Water Appearance: Standard cut (similar to starbuzz) Nicotine: 0.05% Base: Honey & Glycering Smell: A very sweet smell that has slight fruity tones, but i was unable to identify them Taste: Very Sweet, and again with the Fruity taste...almost a little orange with perhaps strawberry? Smoke: Good Clouds Buzz: None Duration: 2.5 Hours Purchased From: Local Shop Overall: 8/10 A good Flavor but i would have liked to have known what it was supposed to be since i couldn't really get a true knowable flavor out of it, I also love that for this one they didn't dye it which i enjoy since dying it is very useless to me. Overall i enjoyed it, i might buy it again but i would love to know what it is supposed to be.

    Hey guys so i just need to get some things off of my chest right now.....the past month almost has been a living hell, im going to a Junior college, taking 17 credit hours (the normal is around 12 im one away from the cap) and trying to focus on school. All the while im being yelled at by my parents to do more, to help more, to stop being the apparent deadbeat son i am (even when i say that around them they just shrug their shoulders). On top of that last weekend on my way home, i stopped at a truck that had taken a corner to fast and slid, flipped over and smashed its roof. The driver was someone from my graduating class in HS, the passenger was a girl by the name of Alyssa, who was still in high school a junior to be exact. When i pulled up the driver was out and running around freaking out about Alyssa, i was the second caller into 911 to report it. The first responder (a County Cop) told us to leave because we didn't see the accident happen. Lo and Behold when i wake up the next morning i find out that this girl who was still in HS died, and whats worse i knew her to some extent, it just didnt click. On top of all this a week ago, a girl i care about managed to get cut on her chest by one of my "Best Friends" one deep enough to need 66 Stitches, it was less than a cm away from puncturing her chest cavity and lung, whats worse is that this girl i care about is utterly in love with this guy, even through him doing that....so im stuck being the person keeping watch, because it was an accident to a point....so much crap has happened to me in the past month that i cant really even process it all right now, im totally lost on so many issues, my grades are suffering, and i can barely get myself out of bed in the morning. Right now the only thing keeping me going is the fact that i have to watch over that girl......that and this weekend i am seeing my all time favorite band in Chicago. Right now, im down and nothing is really helping.....im sorry iv dumped all this on you guys but really my rents refuse to talk to me about any of it and my friends really dont comprehend what im saying and going through...

    New Hookah

    really getting a QT would be much better if you need a portable hookah, as i said in the review its and okay hookah, but looking back to when i had it 9/10 the smoke was rather hot. You also have the problem that to change the battery in the light it a pain in the arise like no other, damn near impossible. Another note is that the glass that makes up the actual "Base" is of very poor quality and cracks with no problem. Finally cleaning it is one of the hardest things i found with it, just always seemed like i always missed something. Anyway if i were you i would go with a QT as you can also use different bowls with it and hoses, and even if you wanted to bases. The leila on the other hand can do none of that. just my  :twocents:
  7. +1 for complete Nargile truth lol
  8. those vases.....so beautiful  :blink: in any case the stem and hose are beautiful as per usual with Turkish Nargile's. But still if one of the vases vanishes....it wasnt me :ph34r:

    Wow, thanks guys really. I know i haven't been around lately but reading all of these actually really helped. And on the idea of a job, i might be getting my old delivery job back, which is okay i guess even though the place was rather....interesting (to put it nicely). But really thank you all, on a brighter note things have been looking up, iv been doing better and my mood has improved overall (i have even been able to pick up the guitar and play now as before i couldn't even do that) so things are looking up. Again i cant thank you guys enough, Thank you all.

    New Mya Mikro

    i actually kinda like it, the bowl design seems like it would make heat management easier, and perhaps its more suited for the traditional style Mu'assel, as i saw somewhere that shallow bowls are suited better for the drier types, but i could be making things up again. Either way cool design, my  :twocents:

    its okay hass, you havent just caused chris to call it Nargile, not Hookah or Shisha. Ever since the topic of names came up again iv been calling it that, even though all of the weird looks my friends give me lol

    What Is Your Goal/dream?

    [quote name='Stuie' timestamp='1358717552' post='569142'] unfortunately... I don't have one...never have... kind of saddens me. Life with no direction. [/quote] But its still life stuie. We are here on this planet to have a life, and to live a life you need to live, and thats different for everyone.
  19. the only thing i have seen myself with an open sore was a co-worker that had her wisdom teeth taken out and was told not to smoke. She did and got what i think was called dry rot (or something like that, its been a while) so i think you should be fine because she was a cig smoker and since nargile is so much smoother i think you should be fine. But im no doctor, and speaking of try going to yours and asking, though you might get the "you should stop smoking" speech and what not
  20. well this thread.....very interesting lol might take the time to read the whole discussion actually

    Fantasia Air-Flow Coals

    Cost: a box of 45 as stated for me cost 8.55 Appearance: A large square coal with a V cut into the bottom (i also noticed that they apparently produced by Exotica, as it states in a corner of the box) Smell: Not as bad as Exotica's were imo, so a slight smell nothing horrible Taste: Really didnt get a taste from these, so i guess they could be worse Ease of Lighting/method: useing a single coil took about as long as cocobuzz so about 5-7 min depending Ash: Grey and sticky, also these produce a ton of ash! like way more than any QL i have seen even, but it does come of the coal easy so thats a plus Heat/Duration: Heat wise seeing as they are huge out of the box they give off a ton of heat right off the bat, but 10 min in they have shrunk enough to make it manageable. Time wise not as long as nara's but about 45 min maybe and hour 15 depending on how fast your smoking Recommend: If you can't get any other nats than these you wont be horribly off, but still they aren't as good as Nara's and the other traditional nat's out there Overall: 7.5/10, only because they really dont last as long as other nat's and because of the crazy amount of ash they produce. The idea is also cool and they do work as stated (the bottom doesnt get snuffed because of the V) so thats a plus. All in all are they worth 8 dollars? not really but hey if thats all you can get then they are better than QL's

    What Is Your Goal/dream?

    Really my dream is to work as a music tech on one of the coasts, i want to be a part of the thing that has helped me so many times (even if atm the industry has been bastardized and turned into a money monster). Plus to be honest i just enjoy technology and i understand and love music so yeah, eventually i want to work for some independent label that doesn't force musicians to pump out music right now, even though their amazing first album took five years. Also it would be my dream to be proficient enough at guitar to actually record my own stuff at one point.....anyway yeah, might be a 19 year old college students dream but thats mine.
