Default Hookah Freak help

WOW I just got done smoking Hookah Freak Atomic Fireball, and realized that is the way to go. I have never smoked Hookah Freak before and the cut is a lot different. I am using a med phunnel bowl am I supposed to lightly pack it??

Lightly pack then tap it down but only slightly. The fine shred has a tendency to burn easy and tapping a little will help it a bit.

If that's how you pack the other two then yes. I use different bowls for different brands so mines a bit different for each.

yeah... kwikwi is right. You want to pack it normal then tamp it down some. The vortex works best IMO, but a phunnel shouldnt be much different

The vortex and phunnel will work pretty much the same. By vortex I mean the new style, with the holes at the very top.

My honest opinion from experimenting: Phunnel + mod > new style Vortex.

Bradedup did the test and found no noticeable differences between the two bowls. The one I did find however is that the Vortex is a bit too deep and the shisha at the bottom does not cook as uniformly as the top layer since the holes are placed too high. Result: you're wasting shisha.

the thing about the mod though, it heats up hella fast and shit gets stuck to it.
the vortex bowl doesn't do that.

btw, nice choice of HF. atomic fireball is my favorite one. i want to get a kilo.

Very true. And I have yet to have any shisha at the bottom un-cooked.

Just use a standard Egyptian. A vortex will work beautifully but it's major benefits don't make any difference with HH/HF. Vortex and funnel bowls are best used with very wet tobacco to contain the juice. Did you have a bad session? HH/HF take a bit of heat management. Once you get it right it's beautiful. Start with somewhat low heat and let the bowl fully heat up. On a standard Egyptian I never use more than two coconut coals and I start with them standing on their small sides.

Bear in mind I now have a vortex that I have been using as my usual bowl to feel out all of it's benefits. But my point is that you do not need to buy anything new to get a great session from HH and HF.

His post said "WOW" so I doubt it was a bad session. He was just asking input.

And before you go and do anything that anyone here tells you is The Best and only way, do what works for you not us. Use what we tell you as a guide not law. No one here knows how things will work for you so if they tell you their way is best, it is but only for them.

That is why I was wondering. If it worked so well why change a thing?
