I don't like the idea of juice going down the stem, so I've only been using the small phunnel, seems to work well with maybe 5 grams (adverts suggested it holds 10-15g.) No reason you couldn't fill half the bowl too, and keep the coals over that half.
honestly ive only had a few shishas that leak down the stem. AF does, but if you mix it with a dryer shisha it usually doesnt. jewels did but it was also half liquid, tangiers will if you smoke it in a standard bowl but thats pretty much it
