Re: Which bowl do I buy?
From my research... Tangiers phunnel and vortex are the same thing EXCEPT... the phunnel has one big hole on the top of the spire, and the vortex has little ones on the side of it.
this basically makes it so you can't really underpack a phunnel without a scalli mod. A scalli mod is more or less something that you can put in it to redirect the airflow through the tobacco, even if the level of the tobacco is relatively low compared to the top of the bowl.
Also, i found more people swear by the vortex than the phunnel. I just received an e-mail about my vortex that was just shipped. I'm geeked to use it.
