I ordered one roll of ten pieces and got this big ass box for free - Quicklights are quicklights and not as good as naturals but its always a good thing to get stuff for free when you need it -
Three Kings are the base line for Quick lights, one shouldn't be using anything of lesser value of Three Kings - They are the bang for your buck coals - I prefer 33m over 40mm because it requires less heat management which is always good!
Everyone says instant coals are junk, i say you decide - Let them burn all the way first before you start smoking so you dont get the burnt taste - Ash them regularly - Only thing is that they dont last very long - The way i see it, you get what you pay for - Quick and cheap, or Not as cheap for better quality -
Everyone who has ever told you they have a bad taste hasn't let them sit and completely ash over before placing on your bowl. Coal burns hot enough to burn off any bit of the chemicals used to make these quick lighting. They do spark and put of an odor while they are in the process of "ashing over"
Three kings coals were what I started out with but now that I have tried Belgian coals I cant stand quicklights as much. They always taint the flavor to some degree and although they are quick to light they are also quick to go out. It is way worth it to take the extra five min. and heat up a traditional coal rather than a quicklight. Three Japanese coals will provide more smoke and longer heat than any instant light and are only a few minutes longer to heat up. Overall, three kings is a good roll of back up coals but I wouldn't recommend them as a primary coal.
Nice, heat without the burn. Our favorite.
I smoke A LOT of hookah and At first I found the Golden Coals the best, but after sometimes having them stop burning I switched to the 3 kings coals and LOVE THEM. Yes, sometimes they crumble but eh... they're great if you take care of your product.
has always been extremely good
these coals are alot better than the golden coal by far. They produce a better and longer burn on the shisha. They last twice as longer than most quick lights and produce a much more enjoyable smoke. time and time again i find myself coming back to this brand more and more
I've tried several quicklights, these are by far the best. They have a very low taste and light real easy. They may spark a bit but don't be a baby about it. Only complaint is that they do burn out prety quick. So glad hookah-shisha is carrying these again!
I bought these at a hookah store once when I had run out of coals. They don't last long, and they make me gag when I hit the hookah too hard. I'd recommend Golden Coals or CocoNara over this any day.
I have to agree with Sarah. Three Kings are just a bit better than Golden. Light easier and I have to use two sets of coals to get through a bowl of star buzz or Romman anyway even when using cocos. Just let them ash over a bit and there is no bad taste. They burn a bit hotter than naturals (so do goldens) I have found so just keep that in mind and do coal management. Please get these in stock again soon.
I have been using and collecting hookahs for a while now so I been through my share of coals. I finally settled down with what they call the "best quick light". I was content with them, but they irritated for some reason or another all the time. I also bought a box everytime so sometimes I would get a "bad box" and none of the coals worked. I recently moved to a new town, and when I went to the closet smoke shop they only had the Three King Coals. I bought a few rolls and planed to go find my coals later. I was very skeptical but they surprised me. They last through a large bowl, there is no taste and despite what that guy down there says they dont spark much at all when you light them. You dont need a torch lighter just light it with a lighter and set it on the stove for a second (my solution too the sparks burning your hand, im a whimp). These are the best coals I have come across, I am definantly a loyal customer.
ive used almost every coal on the market and these are the best
You can pretty much forget about lighting these in short sleeves, unless you have elephant-grade skin. The coals send off a ridiculous amount of sparks, and occasionally I'll get one that lets out this god awful hissing sound before spitting large chunks of flaming coal on my carpet. They might have a slight edge over the Golden quick lites in terms of which coal adds less chemical taste to the smoke, but the pain (quite literally) is not worth the gain. In response to the reviewer who made the "whining baby" comment about others who have complained about the spark issue: sure, stings from sparks aren't the end of the world, but why should I have to put up with them when I can get Golden coals for the same price and not punish my forearms with flaming coal debris? If you need to use quick lites, I'd recommend sticking with Goldens.
