Question Phunnel Bowl question

When you all use a phunnel bowl, do you use a mod with it? I want to know if there is a difference in the way you should pack if you use a mod.
I got a Tangiers Small Phunnel recently and tend to get a better smoke when I use the mod. Is that typical?
Also, should you pack the tobacco tighter in a phunnel?
Thank for any input,
texag15

Thanks for the input, I usually use AF or Nahkla...I guess I'll start using the mod every time I use the phunnel.

I don't like using the mod...granted, mine is homemade, but it just never did it for me. If you want to save space, pack a half bowl or a light bowl...I've never once gotten better smoke with a mod

you can get a smaller tangiers bowl if you dont want to use a mod....

my mod is the glass one from MNH and heats up like a mofo, causing the tobacco next to it to burn it get stuck on it...so i prefer using a modless setup

Interesting. I've heard phunnel w/o the mod ends up with a lot of unburned shisha at the bottom. Is that not true with the small tangier's phunnel? I've been debating on buying one for a while but I still haven't actually done it lol.

Yeah, this is somewhat true. So far, I've found using the mod on my small tangiers phunnel burns the tobacco more evenly.

What does your hole setup look like? And what coals do you use?

I only use my mod when I just want a quick smoke. It works wonders with a small phunnel. Still a great smoke, but a much shorter time period if you need it without wasting a bunch of tobacco.

It definitely saves on tobacco, but there are no other benefits from my experience. I have never had issues with the foil blocking the hole, which is just user error. :P

I've got a small glass MNH phunnel w/mod. I haven't tried using it without the mod, but if tobacco does burn on the mod or the bowl, some steel wool works wonders.

I picked up the MNH mini phunnel and mod and I pack it with the mod just because of the way it's designed. The hole is very low compared to the rim, so when I would try to pack it, it was hard to evenly pack it without having it kinda go inwards down the hole. I've never had any problems with it. It works great. I usually pack some starbuzz with the mod and it goes for at least two rounds of coals. I understand the tobacco sticking a little bit, but as far as it sticking to the mod, I've never had any problems with it there. Only on the rim of the bowl.

the real answer to your question is to just get a vortex bowl

my vortex bowl is super durable but always needs a good scrubbing.

by durable i mean i have dropped it several times without a chip breaking off of it.

The only time I ever used my mod is when I only had a huge medium phunnel and I was smoking alone. Now that I got a small I never even think about touching a mod. So much better without it.
