Re: in the market for a new bowl
Hey Man... you are in luck, I have a glass MNH phunnel w/ scali mod, Vortex, and Crown Jewel. (The bigger version of the Crown Classic)
My Experiences are:
Glass Phunnel w/ scali: Looks great but was expensive. I have had troubles getting it to smoke right with AF and SB. All in all, I probably would not get it again.
Vortex: Functional and fairly cheap. Smoked great for me right from the get go and really impressed my friends over the Mod/Egyptian. This is my "go to" bowl for sure!
Crown Jewel: Crown Hookahs' mashup of the vortex and and phunnel. Looks awesome and smokes great. It was expensive comparitively and it a little difficult to clean under the rim of the spire. (If you ever look at a picture you will see what I mean.) This is the bowl I reach for when I want to have a long session and I am not being lazy.
From my experiences with all three bowls, I would probably like the CH Crown Classic.
