Okay that combo bowl does terrible things to shisha in my experience, just so you know. Every shisha takes a different packing to function best, and every person seems to have their own personal method that works best for them. This is how I pack it on a phunnel bowl with a needle. I'm not saying this will work for you, but it might. :/ :
If your gonna post, "what a waste of time so many holes" or similar(happens every time ive posted this pic) keep in mind that 2 minutes to prep versus 1.5 hours of bad smoke is a good tradeoff for me.
Trying different methods is key
