  1. i live in uk, got a 3 hose abyss from hookah-shisha about a year ago. today the base broke, a bit bummed cos the thing cost so much. anyways, was quite a nice hookah and i dont want to replace it with the types that u get in shops here, hookah-shisha dont have a replacement base on their site - any suggestions? i really wanna retain the look of it and stuff.
  2. k so at uni next year they ban coal based equipment on the basis that accidents will damage the floor. what can i do to effectively 100% assure no burns whilst using it? any sort of mechanism or tool?
  3. from past experience..dont get it off ebay. there must be somewhere local you can get it? for me in surrey i can get it from my local high street, or if i take a 30 min journey into central london i can get it there. try not to get it off ebay, i made the mistake of buying two off it and i do regret it.
  4. i used an old bowl from before i got the abyss, managed to get a better smoke than when i was using the newer bowl that came with the abyss whilst using less coals. win win. will just cover the whole thing in foil so it doesnt look stupid (if i get round to get caring) problem solved! seems a bit stupid that a bowl supplied in a hookah that cost me $120 doesn't stand up to one i got for under $10 from a local store. i think mod hookah's are not the way to go...
  5. could this cause harshness? id imagine breathing in hot air would cause that... i seem to have no problems burning out the tobacco
  6. what are the affects of having a distance between foil&tobacco?
  7. im using quick lite thingies, will try finger coals later when i have some time also for acclimatising tobacco how long should i leave it out? can i put the ma'sell in the bowl then leave the bowl out for a few hours before i smoke?
  8. QUOTE (imagelessdude @ Feb 16 2007, 02:13 PM) Could it be your technique? Cause I've used many hookahs and never had an issue with producing thick, dense smoke. The only hookah I've heard does this is the Stargate lol. ANYWAYS... if I can get hella good smoke from a ''pumpkin''... you can from the Abyss. You plugging the other hoses TIGHTLY when you smoke? Are they auto-seal? Maybe they aren't sealing properly. Are you putting too much/too little water? Too much water and theres no room for smoke in the vase. Tell me how your setup is when you smoke. The water is filled to about an inch above the bottom of the stem. The hoses and everything are sealed properly I check this part of the setup. They are auto seal but they are sealing up fine it's not a problem with that. Hookah's must be standard in their workings right, so there's not much room for error? This is why I think its a problem with the head. The tobacco is filled so theres a small gap between the head and foil. Perhaps only one part of the head is being heated, since air comes in through all of it i'm getting a mixture of air and smoke, more so than with a smaller head. I'm gonna try using a head which has less width but more depth (won't match with the whole black theme of the abyss though heh).
  9. I've had an abyss for close to a year now, but i'm finding it hard to get decent flavour out of it, and to be honest i could never get thick dense smoke out of it. anyone had similar problem? any got tips?
  10. so i take it you dont wanna sell my british self one of these kits?
  11. ok, i'm gonna try it using a new hose- just went through the base and stems with soapy water and i can already tell most of the old gunk has gone properly by breathing through it from the mouth. will start it up with some golden af grape. here's for hopin'
  12. cheers. sent you a pm. is there any choice left in colour/50g sample? bed time for me, i hope you find it in your heart to save one of these deals for me
