Default Modified Tangiers Phunnel Bowl

So last night I was trying out my new sexy hookah and i decided it was a perfect time to use my new wide gauge hose, and phunnel bowl. Well on the first hit it was damn near impossible to get a hit the pull was so hard the hose sucked air back in after I stopped inhaling. I notice that the foil was getting pulled down by the vacuum that was being created. I checked the water level and re wrapped the bowl with foil and made it as tight as I can but still didn't work with out me holding the foil down and taking a hit. So I modified my bowl and now it hits wonderfully. Here is a few pictures of what I did. And I know I'm probably going to be told "heating glue is bad for you" well its not glue its not toxic rubber cement that I used. Over all its like a hybrid between a vortex and phunnel. Once I get my hands on a drimmel I'm going to cut out groves into the top.

I was thinking about doing this as well, but making it span the entire bowl to keep the coals off the tobacco as well as keeping the foil out of the spire. It was just a thought i had.

yea that would be a good idea. I used staples for my mod but im sure you can get some really small chicken wire or use paper clips. I am going to cut out groves in the top of the spire like a castel wall /\/\/\/\ but more of a square pattern

what you did is similar to the "scalli mod" You take either a bobby pin or one of those black paper clamps and use just the metal part and it inserts into the hole and grabs onto the side to prevent it from being sucked in. Works wonderfully on bowls that dont have enough space between the spire and rim......or if you cant seem to get the foil tight enough. I found that using one layer of HD foil virtually eliminates the need for such a mod.

you could have tried the reverse hole? or you could have poked a hole over center to keep suction, or you could have taken the paper clamps the black plastic ones with the metal grips and then taken the metal out and put it in there upside down the rubber cement is not necessary.

I use HD lol my hookah has a ridiculous smooth pull. The hose is a name that cannot be said on this site due to the vendor being banned (I bought it before I joined). But I wish I could post a video review for you guys.

Ajs I tried the reverse hole and got no smoke lol

all phunnels are the same....they all serve the same purpose and all do the job. When it comes down to differences the only ones are build quality and preference.

The tangiers phunnels are the original and of great quality. Erics vendor does a bang up job making them and they are available in a wide variety of sizes. When it comes to choosing one that works for you it is all based on how many people you smoke with and how much. The smalls are more than enough for one person and the Med is great for a group of 2-5 people. The large is just ridiculous and serves no real purpose unless you plan to marathon smoke as it will smoke for 8-12 hours usually if managed correctly.

The chinese phunnels work just fine but the quality of them is shit and they usually require some modification to get to work properly. I had picked one up locally to try out and to get it to work correctly I needed to wrap some damp paper towels around my stem before i put the bowl on to get it to sit and seal properly.

There is the crown micro phunnel which is fantastic for solo sessions and the quality is great.

Then there is the "other" brand of phunnels which despite his rep on here as a vendor, are great products.

Or you could just poke a hole in the middle of the foil.

Hookahcompany are the cheapest for tangs, both that and crown are great bowls, though I'd get a crown (micro) for the sole purpose of using less tobacco, especially with tangiers.

Hookahcompany sells small tangiers mine is a medium and it works perfectly. But the small is probably what you'd like I smoke a lot at once so the medium is perfect

Please get rid of the rubber cement. Just because it says non-toxic does not mean it won't release nasty stuff when exposed to heat. There are big differences between non-toxic, heat safe and food safe.

If you have wire you can just bend out the shape of the type of clip mentioned and it will work just as well.

Regarding proper packing techniques I just suggest making sure that the foil is really tight and use a sharp object to poke holes so the foil does not loosen while doing so. If there is still an issue you can takes some of the juice from the tobacco and line the edge of the bowl with it to seal it like a gasket. This will harden with the application of heat and make the foil stay right where it is but it will also make it a little harder to clean later.

double foiling is how i do it. super tight. and the proper amount of tobacco. it takes time and patience to get a funnel pack right. i think that's the main reason most people are turned off by it. once you master it you won't want to go back to vortex. i smoked vortex and funnel right after each other... night and day on draw and session quality

That can be easily remedied by poking a few more holes in the foil.
