Default Phunnel Bowl

I picked up a phunnel bowl today expecting alot. I didnt know how to set it up so I cam on here and watch a How-to-video. When I finally got to smoke it, I was unable to pull from it. When I put a small hole in the center, it seemed like I was just pulling air with very little smoke. I had to go back to my Egyptian. So I am just wondering what is the proper way to use a phunnel bowl.
Thanks
Str8

When you pack a phunnel you pack it lightly. You sprinkle the tobacco in and even it out around the bowl. The hole patterns are usually preference. What I do, and it works extremely well. Is put about 3 rings of holes on the outside and go as close as you can to the center hole. Make sure your foil is also really tight. If that doesn't work come over and I'll show you haha.

Did you purchase a Chinese variant or a genuine Tangiers bowl?

Sometimes the spire on the Chinese models will be higher and can impede some airflow.

There are cheap fixes for this.

I always pack the shit out of my funnel. What kind of tobacco are you using?

try this. works great for chinese phunnels.
if you got an official tangiers phunnel, you are probably no tputting the foil on tightly enough.

the same happened to me the first time i used the pull was too restricted and the smoke was so thin it loked like steam. then i realised the centre hile wasnt big enough and using the same type of method as john in his videos it works like a charm.

I've done this and it works extremely well. Other than that a scalli always works to keep airflow.

Just curious to know if anyone has tried drilling holes into the inner stem of the phunnel bowl to make it kind of like a hybrid vortex bowl. Anyone tried this, or any thoughts on how this would work?

Did you get it from hookah paradise by a chance? I got my first funnel from there and it sucked, I had the same problems. Then I decided to buy a tangiers funnel online and it made a huge difference.

Heres a tip for everyone using this " paper clip mod"' use a metal screen with foil over it. Make sure to just leave a small gap between them so you can put your desired hole pattern in the foil.

The binder clip mod works pretty darn well, but I'm going to try the scalli mod this weekend to see how that works.

try patelbadboys method of putting tape on the foil so it dont sink in as it may be blocking the hole.

The best luck I had with a phunnel bowl is when I overpacked it alittle and packed the tobacco really tight.And poke the holes with a toothpick all the way to the bottom of the bowl with 3 rings of holes.no center holes.

My phunnel smoked fine as log as there is enough/big enough holes in the foil.
