Re: Regular ceramic egyptian bowl or Vortex?
Well I use my Egyptian bowl when I smoke nakhla, and I use the vortex for Al Fakher and Nakhla Mizo. Both bowls give me nice big clouds and very enjoyable smoke but I tend to save on tobacco when I use the Genie vortex with my Mya hookah so, its just a matter of preference and how you want to pack your tobacco.
The vortex might give you a longer session but in my case I can make the Egyptian last even longer. The vortex will obviously help you with the juicy tobacco since it wont leak down the stem or on your tray.
