if you can get a mini, get a mini, if not get a small. Even a mini is too big.

There was a sale on Tangiers Mini Phunnels earlyer, but they didn't make too much of it. And as is know they don't think about producing them anymore. There are some people, who are selling it, but they ask waaay too much for it; around $50 or so ...

So as the others mentioned above just get a small Tangiers Phunnel for yourself, you will be satisfied with it

the mod smokes it differently, also your not "supposed to" use the mod for tangiers according to eric (it probably would be super hard to pull on any way). that being said, if it works for you then use it. the best thing i found to take up space in your phunel bowl if just pack it with foil in the bottom and instant savings on tobacco, smokes just as well.

i might try and get a friend i can find that is in the ceramics area of my department to make some X small phunnel bowls, not sure how well it will work out but its worth a try

The funnel is a great bowl but frankly if you are concerned about shisha tobacco conservation I would either grab a mod, make one or stick to an Egyptian clay bowl. The vortex is a good option but takes more than a normal Egyptian bowl will to fill. It also is very deep and I have found that while people will complain about wasting the bottom layer of uncooked shisha tobacco in a funnel that problem still occurs in a vortex if using very wet tobacco. I still need to try Tangiers in a vortex bowl and see what I can do with that set up.

heck even with a standard style bowl you have a layer on the bottom usually that is still uncharred unless you smoke the bowl really far but at that point theres usually no/bad flavor

Microphunnel ftw!

But since those are all sold out, go with the small phunnel and scalli mod.

lol well true, i usually barely have much moisture left in the bottom, i also only smoke for one round of CH nats on my mod bowl so if the coals tapered off a bit slower i could probably kill it fully

I seem to keep ordering small or mini phunnels but I keep getting medium.

Avoid generic funnels with a passion. I acquired one at a store and the inside of it was all hollow and it actually slipped down over the grommet, tons of air gets trapped inside the hollowness and you barely get any smoke.
