Default Bowls Revisited

Okay, I have now been into the Hookah Culture for about 2 months. Next too my Harley, it is the only set up that I keep adding things to to make it more improved.

Anyway, I now have three bowls. Two Egyptian style that are the same depth, but one has a wider mouth on it and then I have the Tangier's Medium Phunnel that I use with the Scalli Mod.

With the Phunnel, I get a much more flavorful smoke, yet you do no really get to use as much Shisha with it as you do with the Egyptian Bowls. Not a big issue unless I have one or two others partcipating in the smoke on the Mya Gyro.

With the Egyptian bowls, it seems that about 30-40 minutes in, I start tasting a slightly burnt flavor. When I take off the foil, I see Shisha stuck to the underside of the foil, which I assume can impede the draw. Am I using too much Shisha?

I guess the real question here is how do I get a session where the flavor stays intact up to the "hour" or so I have seen others state they get out of a session? Maybe I am delusional as I am sure the session time is greatly reduced when you have additional smokers hitting the same bowl. That's what I deduse at least.

Are some bowls meant for certain Shisha?

Give me your input as to what bowls are more conducive to certain Shsisha etc...?

Thanks

if the shisha sticks to the foil that is whats making the burnt taste and probably making your smoke a little harsh. as long as you dont let the foil sag down and burn the shisha you should get flavor the whole way through. maybe try using just a little bit less shisha too

I pull the foil tight and it does not sag, so it must be that I am using just a bit too much Shisha.

get something that has a flat base, like the top of a thing of chapstick just for an example, and when you finish sprinkling in your shisha use it to press down the shisha, not pack it down, just level it out so it is about 1/8"below the lip of the bowl. the wider the base the easier it is to make sure its all the same level

Yeah, if you're using a big bowl, there needs to be space between the foil and the shisha... Same with the phunnel IMO

Yea, just about. I have a large phunnel and I've smoked tangiers out of it for over an hour. Maybe upto an hour the flavor is fully intact (Ive used both Orange Soda and Kashmere Peach). The smoke will last longer than that for sure, I think we smoked it for almost two hours and it was still good.

I think duration has a lot to do with the tobacco. Tangiers, Starbuzz and Romman should all last up to an hour in a 50 gram bowl (like a tangiers medium phunnel or a mod bowl), in my experience.

IMO, with even halfway decent coal management, you should be getting 1.5 hour sessions with little to no flavor loss. Assuming a not completely shitty shisha, of course.
