the phunnel

the vortex

it really is a matter of personal preferance... i like the phunnel bowl myself. alot of people like the vortex. essentially they both work in the same way... pack the tobacco around the center -cover with foil and tada... both of these bowls prevent the juice from going down the stem...

keep checking the daily specials on saharasmoke.com, they have one for a free vortex bowl with a 30-35 dollar purchase that comes up once and a while. Thats how I got mine!

I have both and use both.

I find that I can save a lot of charcoal if I use the Vortex, and I can also fit a windcover over it!

Most of the time I will use the Vortex bowl, but if more people are smoking I will take out my small phunnel (my medium phunnel is just too big and pretty much a waste of tobacco) and use that. You have to use more charcoal but I find bowls will last a bit longer. I will also put the scallis mod in if I am using anything but Tangiers.

i have both and i like the phunnel because i get more smoke (when i want it to) and more flavor. vortex is a great bowl but it seems to me that i always use more heat on it.

I need to pick one of these up, although I smoke mostly nakhla (no drip problems)

, the few times I smoke starbuzz etc pisses me off having a fountain or red happy juice coating my tubes. It's a pain to clean.

I have a vortex,never tried a phunnel. But what I have observed is that the phunnel hole will plug up with the foil unless modified. Whereas the vortex doesn't have that problem.My plans are now to buy a phunnel to see if there is a difference in draw.

im really surprised at a lot of the comments that people say the foil plugs or blocks the hole on the their funnels. I always make sure my foil is tight before i punch holes and after i punch holes and have never had the foil sag and block the hole.

hole in the center does the trick... but even if I didn't it would block it personally

I prefer the phunnel but the problem is that when I poke a hole in the center, the ash will get into the stem and I need to clean it afterwards.

Have two or three of each. Prefer the vortex because it keeps the ash out of my stem.

Also I never poke the hole in the center....foil is always tight and therefore no need.

Vortex is better for everytime use. Don't really need to do anything to set it up, just sprinkle in shisha and you're good to go.

Phunnel, you need to either buy or make a scali mod, this prevents the foil from being sucked down into the hole. All I use is a twisted up piece of tin foil and place it over the hole.

Funnel all the way, great investment. Though I gotta say standard Egyptian is still nice a lot of the time, just takes a little more work to keep the heat distributed imo
