[i][b]Duration; [/b][/i]2 and a half hours between 3 of us with my Vortex [b][i]Overall Rating[/i][/b]; 8.0/10 After all the hype I've read about this flavor I was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it's a great flavor and I'll be buying it again but I was expecting much more.
  2. Clean out my bowl right after smoking. Now i basically just wait until i go to smoke again and then rinse it out.
  3. I'm a big fan of Starbuzz, but that being said, I find that using a standard egyptian bowl makes the smoke seem drier and rougher (possibly leading to adverse side-effects). Have you tried smoking it from a Phunnel or Vortex? They hold the juices in much better and create a much smoother and enjoyable smoke. While this is true no matter what mu'assl you smoke, I think it makes a bigger difference with Starbuzz just because it is SO wet. Best of luck to you man.
  4. Look for sales at your local shisha lounge. Last week I went in and they were selling 50g boxes of Al waha for $2 and Romman for $3. Mind you I from NY and we have super high taxes and those prices included tax.
  5. The shisha lounge in the city where I go to school resently had a "Grand re-opening." I stopped by earlier this morning to see what had changed, and to my (ecstatic) surprise, I found that they now carry Al fakher and Starbuzz! I am so pumped because up until now I had to order my 2 favorite brands online and now I can just drive 10 minutes down the road and pick up some Starbuzz Blue Mist and Al fakher Lemon with Mint instead of waiting several days for delivery. Just thought I'd share that with you all. What's happened to make your day lately?
  6. So I don't know about everyone else, but I love mixing flavors. Not only does it give me (and whoever is with me) the chance to taste something new, but I just like the feeling of smoking something and knowing that I mixed it. One of my favorites is a three-way mix with 50% Starbuzz Melon Blue, 25% Al Waha Mint, and 25% Al Waha California Dream. It's like smoking citrus punch + kool-aid + wintergreen. Some ice in the base really sets it off. Plus, you get the smoothness of the Starbuzz and the thick smoke of Al Waha.
  7. My girlfriend bought me a dark blue Mya Chic as an anniversary present and it was like falling in love all over again. It smokes better than many of the medium-sized hookahs owned by my friends despite being half the height. My only complaint, as mentioned above, is that it doesn't purge terribly well. Still, a great investment for any hookah enthusiast, whether novice or experienced, you will not be disappointed. 10/10.
  8. I wish I could get paid in hookah! Beautiful pipe.
  9. After reading all of the great reviews for this bowl, I had to get one for myself. I picked it up from a local smoke shop and tried it that night with my Mya Chic; what a difference over the standard Mya bowl! Not only does the Vortex allow you to smoke at least 1.5 times as long, it also increases the quality of the flavor by catching any drippings as well as increasing smoke density. It's also super easy to clean! The only issue is that the bowl was to large to seal to the grommet. Instead of buying a mod grommet, though, I just soaked a paper towel, wrapped the stem in it and slid the bowl on. It worked just as well as the mod grommet and didn't cost a cent. Great product, worth the price, a must-have for any shisha enthusiast. 10/10

[i][b]Taste[/b][/i]; Wow, cool melon/citrus/mint and several other fruity flavors I can't fully describe. Very refreshing! [i][b]Smoke[/b][/i]; Very thick, lasted the duration of the session. [i][b]Duration; [/b][/i]2 and a half hours between 3 of us with my Vortex [b][i]Overall Rating[/i][/b]; 9.5/10 This stuff is GREAT. My roommate got me a 250g tub of it for my birthday and at first I was pretty apprehensive. I tend to stick to Arabic Mu'assl and this was going to be my first experience with American. I was very pleasantly surprised by the taste, smoke quality, and the duration of the two. I very highly recommend this to anyone and everyone, there's no way you won't fall in love with it.

[i][b]Taste[/b][/i]; Pink lemonade taste was there, but not very potent. Strange bitter aftertaste. [i][b]Smoke[/b][/i]; Average thickness [i][b]Duration; [/b][/i]About 35 minutes [b][i]Overall Rating[/i][/b]; 4.5/10 Not bad, but the bitter aftertaste was very strong and really took away from the experience. That being said, I think this flavor would mix well with a fruit punch- type flavor.
  12. One of my buddies told my when he's home, he and his friends have an awesome set up that is as follows. He drives an old range rover, they'll drive out to a park, open up the trunk, put an old tv and N64 hooked up to a car battery at the edge of it and then set up a couple chairs behind it, hookah between them, and play super smash bros and smoke shisha all afternoon. Only sounds amazing haha.

The flavor lasted from the first pull to the last. I highly recommend this flavor, I could smoke it every day if I had the time/money to do so.

Al Fakher undoubtedly produces some of, if not the abosulute finest Mu'assl out there, I recommend it.
