Default Re: yes yes the # vortex thread!

That vortex bowl in the link you provided seems smaller than the standard one so it could be a Genie vortex. The question is which one did you order? A standard size Vortex holds 25 to 30 grams of tobacco.

A Vortex is usually better for the wetter stuff because it retains all the moisture at the bottom of the bowl but you can smoke any tobacco out of it. I primarily smoke Nakhla and I use my Vortex all the time. Just keep in mind that the packing method is critical so you might need some patience and practice to get it right.

I recommend the packing methods suggested in this thread:
