If you are happy with the results then there is no point in getting another bowl

if you smoke SS and Mizo a lot you dont need another bowl....the phunnel will work great for both of those. If you want to try regular nakhla or any of the drier brands then you may want to get an egyptian style bowl. The phunnel will work for wetter/drippier shishas and the egyptian is great for drier/stickier shishas.

100% this. Couldn't have said it better myself. I would suggest getting a normal egyptian bowl for nakhla and you'll be good to go.

Default Re: Bowls

personally I like to have an array of bowls. each bowl smokes differently and the same moassel will smoke differently in one bowl than another. I think the 3 bowls any hookah smoker should have is a mini/small phunnel, a vortex, and an egyptian, then go from there. personally I think mizo smokes better in an egyptian than a vortex or phunnel, but sometimes I want that sweet taste the whole time through so Ill throw it in a phunnel, but it wont have as much natural tones on account of being in the molasses.

the main bowls I use are:

egyptian
micro phunnel
vortex
myan
crown classic


that said, i have 3 egyptians, 2 myas, a mod, 3 vortex's, a medium phunnel. the list goes on. But you could say Im a "bowl guy". cant get enough of them lol

I think its all a persaonl prefference. I have smoked different types out of all the different bowls. I preffer to smoke Nahkla and other dryer tobacco out of clay bowls. The wetter type out of the phunnel bowls. I loved my vortex for AF, nahkla and starbuzz before it got broken, waiting for it to arrive and i will be using it for that again.

If you are getting good results and you like what you are getting out of it, then if it aint broke why fix it. I myself just like having options and different sized bowls.

With the exception of the deep Mya bowls, I can get anything to smoke great out of any bowl.

I was curious about this as well. Great answers, but what's the difference between an egyptian and a mya? Material? It seems that I can get an egyptian bowl cheaper than a mya bowl too.

Ah, ok. I guess that makes sense. But then I guess you could use a small mya for a drier shisha as well.

The crown classic 2 works great, TONS of air flow.. I've only smoked social smoke out of it so far, but I just received my Tangiers lucid's that I'm going to give a shot in it. From what I've tried (guessing it's sort of a reverse hole pattern), poking holes in the center of the bowl and keeping the coals in the center has worked best. Of course just make sure the shisha is pushed down below the holes going around the top of the bowl. I definitely recommend it.

Are the vortex bowls good for every kind of tobacco or are there certain brands that should be smoked with a normal bowl?

i use my mini phunnel 90% of the time. the only think that doesnt smoke well out of it is hh and hf. i love it because its very good for switching flavors every hour. besides that i mostly smoke out of my vortex and egyptian, and very rarely from my tangiers small phunnel. my mya and mod bowls just sort of collect dust.
