Default Screen rather then foil?

I would think a screen is easier to use and it won't sag at all.
Are there any down sides to useing a screen?

The holes are HUGE! and I don't feel I get as good of a seal around the outer edges with a screen as I do with foil. Just my opinion though. Do you have a screen? I can send ya one if you haven't had the chance to try one out ...

I woul agree with . Screens let in alot of air often leading to a weaker smoking experience.

foil is all i use, unless i have my combo bowl - then sometimes i still use it. I even use foil w/ by glass smiley bowl. Myself - I find the glass screen burns the shisha way too fast, but does cut down on the amount of ash that gets into the bowl.

I like foil but will use a screen when I am out of foil and don't feel like driving to get more. I like the screen but it has huge holes and the metal tabs don't really hold to the bowl that well i wish someone would make a metal screen with smaller holes

Metal screens have no upsides other then not sagging which is not an issue as I almost always use the small funnel/scalli combo. Besides the problems already mentioned screens all have the same pattern and often different sorts of patterns are needed. As a result, i'd say don't bother with metal screens.

Pyrex screens and bowls are supposed to be very good but they are very expensive and given how often ceramic bowls brake i'm not to delighted with the prospect of wrecking a $30 bowl or a $6 screen. Besides, funnels are wonderful and cost about a third of what pyrex does so i'm not tempted to switch.
