Haha, I almost completely agree with you...actually thinking back I do agree with you. I have only bought 300g of HH since I started smoking personally and I must say its on the bottom of my list. I won't go as far to say they are the worst evar, but I'd say the lack of quality is a steep price for the variety of flavors, in which can be found in better brands (SB,JMs,AF)
But back to the phunnel...I would say to try and stick with any med-long cut tobacco with good moisture/vicousity ratios like Nahkla, Starbuzz, AF, Rosetta, Al Waha, Tangiers, El Hennyway...etc the list goes on. I would just suggest that anything with a cut smaller than JM's and has the texture of wet shredded paper should not go into a phunnel, a vortex works a ton better. Granted a phunnel and a vortex commercially are based on the fact that they catch drippies from going down the stem...I still find that because a vortex pulls the air through the shisha and is a bit deeper in the bowl it works better for fine to med cut tobaccos.
Pretty much a stick to:
Egyptian- For anything like Nahkla and for a more flavorful session (reason again being that the air flow is directly through the shisha but being that a egyptian bowl will always create more direct heat for the shisha I find it is better for use with Nahkla styled shisha, and never a good idea for heat sensitive or fine cut shishas)
Vortex- Already explained it for the most part...
Phunnel- Refer to "Vortex-"
