  1. Hello, there.

    Yes! I much prefer being home where I am able to both drink/do what I want while I smoke. Plus, having control over the bowl pack/heat/coal brand is very important to me, now. I went to a lounge while I was working at a summer camp, and they had some kind of cheap instant light coal (I will only use Three Kings instant light), and the whole thing tasted like chemicals. I brought my own coals the next day, lol. There are also no cats at lounges (well, there was at the one I started at). Not that I should be snuggling with my cat while I'm smoking, but...
  2. Hello, there.

    Hi! New to the forum, not to hookah. I used to do the forum thing a lot with a few bands about a decade ago, but I'm terribly out of practice. I figured that I smoke hookah often enough that I should probably try and integrate with the community instead of lurking about in my living room with my cat. I've been a hookah smoker for about nine years, and with my own hookahs etc... For about the last four. I got started at a unique little hookah bar/music venue in Illinois that has since closed, not due to service but due to the landlord selling the property, and now eschew hookah lounges because I'm picky and because that shit is expensive. I am a teacher (don't smoke, kids!), a classically trained singer, and an enormous nerd. Talk to me about Tolkien, Harry Potter, Hawkeye or Star Trek and we will be internet best friends. I spend most of my life reading, smoking hookah, drinking wine or whiskey, and kicking my cat off of my lap because smoke is bad for him. Good to be here!
  3. Hookahset.com Review Thread.

    Hello! So, I've been ordering from hookahset since 2011, and making regular orders for about two years. Regular meaning I place an order for shisha and coals about twice a month. My experience started off great, with the discounts and regular sales etc, especially since I pretty much always order the same thing and they always have it in stock. The problems, as with most from what I can tell, are with pretty much everything else. Once, I was sent a box of coals that I didn't order with no call and no explanation. I didn't bother with looking for a refund because I was lazy. Then, on more than one occasion, my order hasn't been shipped for days after it was sent, despite their claim that they ship M-F within 24 hours. When I've branched off to try other things, I'll almost always get a call saying that the flavor is out of stock (social smoke) or receive an alternate brand or something when my order arrives. I ordered a dragon flip bowl to replace my current one, and was sent a regular flip instead. I called to have the order refunded, and was sent a duplicate tracking label. I didn't notice it at the time, but after it was sent and I checked the tracking number I realized it was a mistake. This took just over a month to resolve with many calls and emails, but I was eventually issued a full refund for the flip bowl. On a weird note, I always use FEDEX shipping when I buy (my orders are always over $75 so I get the free shipping discount), but they always ship per USPS priority, anyway. I once called to complain that my order hadn't been sent out/wouldn't arrive on time, and they claimed that someone had upgraded my shipping to the USPS priority and so technically I'd already received better shipping than I'd paid for and that the FEDEX ground would have arrived after the date anyway. Discount codes don't work, inconsistent shipping practices, items and flavors out of stock without any kind of post. It's the little things. I haven't been screwed by hookahset as badly as some, it would seem, but I don't think I'll be ordering from them again. It's not worth the annoyance of wondering if my order will be sent out in a timely manner, or if I'll receive the correct items if I deviate from my usual. Sorry to say that I've been one of the people keeping them in business for the past five years. I'm going back to hookah-shisha.
