Default Re: Hookah Freak help

Just use a standard Egyptian. A vortex will work beautifully but it's major benefits don't make any difference with HH/HF. Vortex and funnel bowls are best used with very wet tobacco to contain the juice. Did you have a bad session? HH/HF take a bit of heat management. Once you get it right it's beautiful. Start with somewhat low heat and let the bowl fully heat up. On a standard Egyptian I never use more than two coconut coals and I start with them standing on their small sides.

Bear in mind I now have a vortex that I have been using as my usual bowl to feel out all of it's benefits. But my point is that you do not need to buy anything new to get a great session from HH and HF.
