i have tried all kinds of tobacco. even lost my teeth from chew duh. the hookah is just the best i feel. i mean if you are going to use tobacco. i smoke about 7 bowls a day now. i'm retired lol. the thing is if you are going to smoke as much as i, i would recommend wood charcoals. the charcoals are the most dangerous part of this thing. nonetheless i am sure the lung ass. loves me. to be honest i like starbuzz and haze. most hardcore smokers hate those. fumari is by far the best but i have to mail order it. i live in a very rural area and the only stores up here are tobacco,liqueur and gun shops lol. go figure. also i wanted to add i feel mya is the best hookah and it is something made in china! right now i have stockpiled about 26 kilos. i was wondering does anyone that smokes that much also have a mild cough? i do.
