Little help, guys!

Today I will try for the first time to smoke with filters, but .... I do not know which is the proper side.... is this green side goes facing to bowl, or vice versa? Thank you! :)

Igor, The green side will face the mouthpiece.
The other end of the filter should be ceramic (a plain colour) and faces the bowl. Hope that is helpful (and correct!).

Sorry, guys, I tried smoke with filters, but, everytime I almost puked out. Different taste of tobacco, different taste in mouth....this is not it. I'm going back to the traditional way.

That's why I never use filters!
