Default Egyptian farida glass vortex bowl packing

I just got a farida XL glass vortex bowl and I noticed that the spire was a lot smaller then the actual rim of it, I was just wondering what I'm supposed to do. My intuition tells me that I should just pack it a little before the rim but I think that would clog the entire thing if I were to do that. So I decided to make a post here and look like an idiot before I try it out for the first time.

It's hard to tell from the photo exactly how tall the spire is, but I think you could use the Vortex 'spacer' method, which is on HP as a video. You get a 1/2 to 3/4 inch plumbing pipe adapter/reducer. You slip the 3/4 end of the reducer over the spire, then you pack your bowl as you normally would. This leaves you with some space between the spire and the surrounding tobacco and provides a clear channel for airflow between the coals/tobacco/bowl hose/water pipe/hookah pipe. This method works for me on my vortex, which is not a glass vortex. My vortex also has a spire lower than the rim of the bowl. I think all vortex bowls are built this way....but I don't own all vortex bowls....so not positive about this point.

PS: Of course you pull the adapter out before you do the final packing job and throw the foil on top of the bowl.
