Default Foil or Screen??

I was wondering what should i use foil or a screen. Ive been using a screen just because its easier to clean, but i feel like you get bigger clouds from the foil.

for me, screen gets way too hot way too fast and the holes let a lot of ash fall into the bowl
double-foil does it for me =)
its not that much harder to do. i carry a roll of foil in my car 24/7 hehe

I like going with foil, if you accidently burn your bowl it's hard to clean the screen off. If you're having with one piece of foil burning, double up on the foil.

LMAO... here I go again... Hi I'm wonderland Im the only one pretty much that uses 99.9% screens all the time (except on a tangiers bowl). Screens are handy, easy to clean, and it hasnt failed for me. I own a lounge and as I already know some would run for the hill but I use them in the lounge. LOL its seems for some screens are just as hard to use as tangiers. There is nothing wrong with foil hell before I discovered the screen way back when I just used foil. lol it really makes no difference in smoke. I'll take the "pepsi" challange anyday with a screen on or foil on. lol screens FTW! lmao

I like using foil but I just got a funnel bowl and the foil just keeps sucking down, so I'm doing what was suggested before.. foil + screen but I'm not getting shit for heat. I gotta think of some other way to rig this up :\

Get a tangiers phunnel... but I'll tell you what to do because it happened to my junk ass fake phunnels... get a dremel tool and cut groove into the sides of the phunnel part...1/8 thick 3/16 down about 4 or 5 groves around. now it wont matter if the foil sucks down. Or get a scalis mod.

Plain old foil here =]

Although every now and then my friend brings over some purple or gold colored foil. Think that changes anything? I hope it's not just extra chemicals getting into my smoke.

foil, it just gives more variation and you can try new hole patterns, also the holes on most screens are entirely too big

Ive never had the best luck with screens. They let to much side air in and heat is lost. the only time i get it to work well is if i use a wind protector. then it smokes nice. but still stick to the foil, it works best
besides,
what is this double foil method?

you put 2 layers instead of one, just adds more thickness because normal foil is usually to thin
