Default Phunnel bowl or tower bowl?

Hello HookahPros!

At the moment I want to buy a new bowl for my hookah. I must chose between two ones:
Tangier's phunnel bowl
Tangier's tower bowl

the size doesn't matter at the moment.

So which one do you like more? And why? I hope someone can help me to chose the "better" one

greetings

it depends what you'll be smoking.Funnels are great for weter types of moassell, esp. tangiers.funnels keep the juices in the bowl allowing for a longer, more sustained flavor throughout you session.You will need a mod if you choose a funnell.I'm not familiar with the tower as I don't own one, but they do look nice atop your shisha! good luck!

a funnelw/out a mod is fine. but the foil can be pulled into the hole while smoking. A mod also allows for the use of less product and an overall more efficient smoke.
of course, it's a matter of prefference, but a mod is suggested.

I believe MNH is the only place that carries mods.

in all honesty it shouldnt be that hard to make them even with out being able to look at one that is already made. it really is just a disk of glass that has been melted over some thing that is about the size the the middle of the phunnel and pinched in the right way to let the smoke pass in.

heck you could even take a piece of tubing that has one end sealed that will fit over the phunnel and just poke holes at the bottom/bend out parts of the bottom.

starting next semester i will be taking some hot working glass classes so i will see if i can manage to make some or at least figure out how easy the average person at home could do it (you may have to temper the glass after forming which you cant do at home).

The tower bowl is the original Tangiers bowl. It's just a large egyptian style bowl with an extended neck.

Phunnel is the way to go. Towers are just giant mods.
