get yourself a standard egyptian and then get a phunnel bowl. You will need both. Look around on some different sites to find yourself a big egyptain bowl, but this tangiers phunnel will hold a lot of shisha and you can use it for anything if you want. give it a try, heres a link there are reviews on the page so you can see what others think about it.

it is similar to the vortex but not the same, i feel that more people like the phunnel than the vortex but thats just my opinion, a friend of mine has a vortex and hates it but idk, do a little research on both and yo should be able to figure out which one is better suited for you.

I have a vortex and i love it, i think funnels last too long and i think my vortex gives out a lot of flavor but then again it all boils down to opinion

I'd say to go with the phunnel and just use the makeshift mod by using the metal handle things from a paper clamp thing to keep the foil from blocking the center hole.

I love my small and mini phunnels... Used to want a vortex until I read a few bad reviews about the hole placement. Figured its worth the few seconds to make a scalli mod out of foil when i want one

MNH carries it, it just redirects airflow underneath the shisha in a phunnel.

Basically one of these http://completehookah.com/equip/phunmod.shtml

Forces air through the shisha rather than "over" it with a phunnel bowl.

One could argue that holes lower down on a vortex bowl would achieve the same effect, but that would cause the juice to run down the stem-the same problem as with egyptians.

some people dont like them but the mod bowls are great IMHO. its my go to bowl unless im smoking tangiers, and then i use a small phunnel. for egyptian type bowls i prefer wide shallow ones as apposed to narrow deep ones.

I love my phunnel, just make sure to pack light unless you want a 2+ hour session. Both phunnel and vortex are good for a nice even burn, lots of flavor and solid sessions. Enjoy!

I prefer vortex for two reasons, most of which seem to not bother other people.

1. Vortex is shorter so you can fit windcover over easier.

2. Without the mod, ash goes straight down stem with phunnel. Annoying.
