Yeah i have every size of phunnel bowls on the market and every size egyption and every type of vortex from pyrex to metal. I gotta say I like the ordinary clay vortex the best for wet tobacco. It holds just enough to last me about 2 hours full of flavor. Although I like the metal one... FYI everyone it oxidizes or rusts, either way its showing some odd looking discoloration after washing it. The pirex is amazing cause you can see through it. Its also extremely light and still pretty durable. I like the clay one better for a short smoke session (Under 2 hours). Or if I'm just getting off work then ill grab the pyrex cause im chillin out in front of the 50" plasma engulfed by my surround sound with my gf. Doesn't get any better.
