Re: More intense flavour with standard bowl?
I don't have a phunnel bowl. But I love my vortex bowl. I moved to it from an Egyptian and never looked back. I would only use an Egyptian bowl now for smoking alone. I havent notice any loss of flavor with my new bowl, it has only improved. I dont like the idea of the phunnel bowl having one huge hole at the top. I am almost 100% sure a scali mod would help with that by making the air flow through the tobacco more. But thats not an issue with my vortex.
Hope this helps.
