This way not as much heat reaches the shisha which should cool it down a little bit.
As a side note, I have a ceramic Vortex bowl from Sahara Smoke and it works quite well, though I don't notice a huge difference than using a plain old Mya bowl lol
Yeah I have tried that also, still burns the shit out of my precious Social Smoke Mobster. I seriously went thru 500 grams of shisha in less than a week because of how fast it was burning, plus I smoke quite often.
