Re: Fight of the Phunnels!
i have owned a small phunnel for a year and a vortex for a month. the vortex is a better bowl in my opinion, even for tangiers (i dont follow eriks packing method though). the vortex holds less tobacco than the phunnel but it still is plenty.
even with a phunnel i cant get more than 1 good round of nat coals with nakhla so i dont have a good amount of advice for that but with tangiers i can get a good 2 rounds of nats on the vortex and not waste tobacco
