Default Tangiers Funnel Bowl or The Vortex Bowl

I own a vortex bowl and I love it, but I have never smoke out of a tangiers funnel bowl. So I was wondering what everyone's opinion was. So Which do you prefer or think is better and why?

I use my Vortex for all my HH/HF tobaccos and the funnel for all others. Just what I've become used to.

Both will smoke equally well.

There are many differences between the two, but I don't think you need to have both. My favorite is the Tangiers small phunnel because it uses less tobacco and distributes heat better. They're both excellent products though.

I've only used a funnel, in fact, I broke my second one yesterday

I plan to order a real funnel this time around and get a vortex too.

I've been wondering this too..I searched the forums and still can't make up my mind..I dont want to buy one and wish I got the other and money's not that great right now to just buy hookah bowls lol I'd rather buy shisha\flavor..I'm leaning towards a phunnel since it seems more versatile?..in respect to being friendly to tangiers and whatnot..BUT I've seen a vid someone posted here (sorry forgot who) showing how to pack tangiers in a vortex

vortex seems more friendly to newcomers..phunnel needs more paying attention to..from what I hear

You can smoke Tangiers in any bowl.

I'll post up a video or pictures on how to. I use foil to make the funnel part of a phunnel bowl and it also traps the juice, since I only smoke tangiers it causes none of the juice to drip down into the stem =]

I saw someone doing something similar. he basically made an imprint of the egyptian bowl but more shallow and with rings of very tiny holes sort of like what you're talking about. I didn't realize you could use foil to make a phunnel version lol..

Personally, I'm down for either bowl. Both of them are great for certain flavors and brands, but nothing beats a good ol' Egyptian bowl some times.

I find that when smoking out of my vortex bowl, the flavor starts to taste bad before it's actually done. I haven't had this problem with my phunnel.

I've got both, but have been using my phunnel for the past 4 sessions. It seems to handle Al Fakher really well.

Need to use my Vortex some more actually for a few tobaccos but am reluctant to as I am getting such good results from my Phunnel

I'm new here but I'm guessing you fold the foil into a funnel and use the extra to form the bowl

If you're going to get a phunnel then either a crown phunnel, predator phunnel, or godfather phunnel are all better in my opinion.
