Default tangiers still makes mini phunnel bowls?!

i e-mailed tangiers on their goofy website asking if there was any way they would start selling mini phunnels again, and if not; if i could get one somehow. this was their response:

Quote:
Probably not. We will keep a small supply of them here at the factory for walk-in retail. We like making white elephants...which is what the minis were.
so it sounds like they are still making just a few. but you have to go to tangiers in so. cal. to get one. somebody needs to go down there and buy 50 of them and sell them to us!

Weird. I emailed them about three months ago on their crazy goofy site and he emailed back like a month later and said they don't make them period. :*(. He gave me some crap about how they need to be "redesigned".

You are making quite the statement without justifying it... Please elaborate.

Maybe he realizes how rabid the fanboys of Tangiers are and doesn't want to get them all fired up. If the guy doesn't want to go there again, then he has his reasons. If he wishes to share them fine, if not that's fine too.

I just want to know what was wrong. But if it's that touchy of a subject then so be it.

that really sucks

i really cant help but think he just wont make the the minis so that he can sell more tobacco, not speaking badly of the man because when i have interacted with him on line or over the phone he has been more than helpful but from what i hear from people the minis are the best size and smoke the best

Now I know you're joking, but lately it seems that anytime somebody says something good about something that is not Nakhla, they receive responses such as "blasphemy" and "infidel". I'm waiting for this site to be renamed NahklaPro.com.

What the hell is the big deal about mini phunnels anyways? Its not like you can't smoke at all with out them. Buy a tangiers small (or any small funnel)
and its practically the same thing.

i totally agree with the nakhla thing. yeah, nakhla is good but i still like al-fakher and al-waha. nakhla gets boring after awhile. (this is where the nakhla worshippers tell me that i'm a sinner and that i should be summoned to hell)

i like the idea of a mini phunnel because you can use a really small amount of tobacco, and have the phunnel bowl advantage.

not going to condemn you but i am going to say it just means you dont have enough flavors if it gets boring 20 flavors keeps you from getting bored

idk if you smoke tangiers much or if at all but using erics "official" method takes a hell of a lot of tobacco even in a small. i know i can get a good 4 rounds of coals out of a small and still have a lot of juice left in it (and frankly i dont want to smoke a flavor that much in a row). the idea with the mini is that is a more realistic size and allows you to use the tobacco better instead of tossing so much in the trash. ya the smalls work fine but if i could use half the tobacco i use and get the same smoke and flavor i would be happier, look at how much you use in an egyptian bowl and have it smoke wonderfully, you cant tell me that you couldnt use that much tangiers and have a great session, its just that the bowls dont accommodate that scenario well

There is no law that says you can not reuse your tangiers. Eric is the largest proponent of this, so that pretty much squashes the "no more minis so he can sell more tobacco" theory. Tangiers can be a challenge to smoke because its different from the rest of the "lock and load" tobaccos out there. If thats why people hate it, so be it.

Give it time, I bet Caravan or someone else is working on a knock off right now and in three months time everyone will have one and will have moved onto some other fad.

i know of a good amount of people that smoke tangiers out of their Egyptians, how ever it is pretty hard to figure out how to make it smoke right for most of us.

ya you can save the tobacco but i sue as hell wont toss it back in my container of good shisha and dont need to have another 6 containers of half used tangiers laying around

as to the knock offs they will probably work ok but one of the things with the tangiers bowls is that they are made from a certain ceramic that the knock offs have failed to match
