a PHunnel bowl is ment for the more wet/juicer tobacco. it is Designed so that the juices from your Shisha dont drip down your stem, and due to the juices staying in the bowl and not leaking out, it leads to a more flavorful session.

Phunnels also make your hookah stem WAY easier to clean because the juices don't drip down it with every puff.

I strongly disagree. To this day, I am still unimpressed with this half knockoff. The phunnel does two things:

1. Retains alot of the glycerine/flavoring in that is common in more non traditional moassel's

2. Spreads the tobacco out more, providing more surface area.

IMHO, the vortex is still too deep, which creates alot more unburned tobacco after a session. Also, I think that the ventilation system in place sacrifices airflow for the sake of trying to appear to be originial.

That being said, read the reviews and findout what you like. Alot of people like one or the other, or both. Take advantages of the features this site has to offer and make an informed decision.

phunels are good for long smokes and for tangiers. they can give you better smoke depending on the tobacco but i think you waste a lot of tobacco in it (i can get 2 rounds of coals out of a very very tight pack of nakhla that is equivalent to about 4 bowls of my mod bowl which each can last for a full round of coals and have a bit of moisture left to push farther into a second round on the rare occasion i do)

for tangiers it works well but your still using a boat load of tobacco. they need to sell the mini phunnels regularly, with tangiers i can get 4 + rounds of coals out of a small phunnel, given after the first 2 its better to let it cool off and/or mix it up to get the juices back up but its still a waste
