Default Re: Vortex Bowl Help

I always pack mine to be somewhat "fluffy" which is to say that I do not pack it super dense, try using a small fork to fluff up the tobacco and then settle it back down so that it does not touch the foil/screen. You can do it a few times untill you get comfortable with it . It's a very simple process but I will say this, your almost alwasy going to get some amount of what looks like unused tobacco in the bottom of the bowl (I should say that this often happens to me, i'm sure someone will dis-credit) with most blends, but as long as your letting heat permeate through the whole bowl you will get a much more even (and longer) smoking time out of it. Hope this helps
