It's a lot bigger bowl than a standard hookah bowl from what I can tell.
phunnels smoke differently, no doubts about it the flavor is slightly different but not huge but some people will notice, i sure do but its not bad.
as to the mya bowls, im not to impressed with them, they are too deep and when i used mine for some reason i got all sorts of ash down the stem and got a really bad flavor, and my friend that uses his pretty regularly has complained a few times about the top ending up burned and the bottom being really untouched, i like deep bowls but that seems a little to deep

just use less heat, like 2 coconut type coals as apposed to 3 like you use on other shishas, also double foiling wouldnt be a bad idea unless your using HD (hot heavy strength, no matter what people say, its thinner and smokes differently than HD, and thicker than regular)
