  1. Not up to date on sarcasm i guess.
  2. Cool idea...I would be careful about using copper and any other type of soldered metals. They give off extremely toxic fumes when heated above 400 degrees. Solder is certainly dangerous if heated to even lower temps. But keep working on it...its cool.
  3. Horchata is a wonderful flavor that coats your mouth..its very cozy, as in a good book and large fire on a winter night. Not sure about Blackthorn....Try tangiers you will love it....I feel that its more getting used to the buzz rather than the smoke...A well packed Tangiers bowl is very smooth and thick, not harsh at all.
  4. That white crud on your first hookah looks more like light corrosion, which may be fixed by CLR a cleaning agent available at most hardware stores and super markets. A little elbow grease and I think it may clean up just fine. Looks to me like mineral deposits. For 75 bones that black hookah looks pretty good....Id say its worth cleaning and keeping.
  5. try some canned condensed milk... sometimes its on sale at super markets. Ive heard it works well...about half a can with water.
  6. My girlfriend is allergic to bananas and Im wondering if there is a chance of Al-Waha banana split having any actually banana fruit in it? Or if the second hand smoke would cause an allergic reaction? She would never risk smoking banana flavor.
  7. Watch the Film; Waking Life...and smoke your favorite flavor. Life changing.
  8. Here are a couple things Ive tried in the past... -Lots a little holes in the foil -Break the coals into halves -Try ice and other liquids in the base -Regulate heat by reducing coals, vise versa, and adding or removing wind screen -Try looking at this Thread: http://www.hookahforum.com/index.php?showt...mp;#entry144165 -As for the seals...on the hose and bowl try wrapping a bit of napkin around the grommits Good Luck
  9. Perhaps try experimenting with different liquids in the base. At the moment I am smoking Laylina mint with selzer water, ice and a couple shots of Grenadine Cherry Syrup in the base. I call it Mint Cherry Fizz.
  10. Never heard of that company. But damn for 50 bucks you got a nice piece there. I like it!
  11. Colored Smoke!!! Awesome and smoke shapes too...great ideas. Thirdking you should start working on that invention. Maybe you would strike it big and create a great product. Sounds worthwhile. -As for what I'd change about a hookah...hmmmm... Im going to sit down to a tasty smoke for this one.
  12. I agree with pbpredator...an acrylic is a great beginning hookah. My first 16" took a lot of falls, luckily it was very thick glass...but now the stem is pretty bent. Look at reviews for sure. Good Luck. Peace -Waffle
  13. So you used the orange as the bowl? Very interesting.
  14. If its too big try using foil or napkin to wrap around the rubber grommet then put the bowl on and twist gentle. If its too small try taking off your rubber grommet and just using napkin or foil as a grommet instead. Try to think about McGuyver> Good Luck.Peace -Waffle
  15. WEll better luck next time blu. Ive heard bad things about Rollands coals.
  16. Sorry about this one Mushrat.... Ive been using the foil tech that I posted in How to Funhouse. A double level foil tech (youll have to check it out). When I lite the coals I only light one side until its red hot. I havent been lighting all sides before placing it on the foil. That may be my problem. Ill try have the entire coal red before I use it. Oh and yeah Im using an electric stove. Thanks guys.
  17. Definately consider Safesearchoff's favorite brands and Chinamon's list of washed and unwashed. If your looking for taste and buzz go with Tangiers or Al waha. If just taste and no buzz, Laylina, Starbuzz, and Hookahhookah are best. Be sure to check out the Tobacco reviews though. Good luck!!Peace -Waffle
  18. New Paltz, New York....about 1 hr. north of NYC
  19. www.hookah-shisha.com is the best...they have the MYA hose adaptors under the accessories page. Good luck.
  20. And remember to clean very well after!!! All parts!
  21. Yeah, smoke volume is visible. So is water level and bubbles when smoking. Its not as viewable as a clear base of course but like I said black just looks so good. I was also looking at the Ballerina. I chose not to purchase that one though because I couldnt accurately estimate the quality of the hookah...also wasnt sure who made it, its available on a few sites. Its got a very cool design though.
  22. I recently bought the MYA Staff hookah in black. Really its more smokey black than solid. Never have a problem with seeing the water level. And black is very classy.
  23. Well JakeB1322 you are getting some great feedback. Thats what I love about this site. Try contacting the customer service of bbarms see what they are like, because the prices look pretty good on that site. The only other thing I can suggest is try looking for a small MYA acrylic. My first hookah was a small red and gold no name from China town and boy I still love it, but its been toppled over quite a few times by friends. With a MYA youll pay a little more. Keep searching when you find the hookah youll know it. Peace -Waffle
