Re: Vortex Bowl
I'd say that choosing a bowl varies a lot depending on what tobacco you're using. Like Nick said, if you've been smoking for a while you can get most bowl to smoke similarly so you should consider how much tobacco you want to use and what type of tobacco. For wetter brands like Starbuzz, Social Smoke, Fantasia etc etc its almost always better to use a vortex/funnel bowl. With tobacco like Nakhla I prefer to use a standard Egyptian bowl, although many people like to use a funnel for these tobaccos as well. There are many different opinions on this so the best advice I think is to buy one and try it out. The vortex is defiantly a good starter for the "juice saver" bowls.
