OG Tangiers bowls don't have that problem... it's probably chinese.

I have 2 things you can try. Either poke some holes in the middle so the foil doesn't get sucked down into the bowl, or you can use these clips. http://www2.grynx.com/wp/projects/Bi...s/IMG_5623.JPG
I use them for my small funnel bowl and they work well. You just take off the silver pieces and put then into the hole in the funnel. Then bend them into place. They will hold your foil up and keep it from sagging.

what you can do is wrap electric tape really tight under the curvey part of the phunnel and make the foil tight

my friend got a tangiers phunnel (it was before any one else made them even) that had the issue, just a dud.


to the OP take either aluminum or steel wire (not galvanized !!!!!!!!!!) and make a little thing to keep the foil propped off the center

I'd definitely recommend using a metal screen. They come free with pretty much any hookah you can buy, so you may even have one lying around. I swear by them.

get 2 small paper clips, take of the metal part, and put them in the bowl criss crossed and this should stop it sagging
