Default Vortex vs Phunnel

I know some people are going to say "use the search bar" but I already did and I didnt find anything and the ones I did find went kinda off topic...

So basically this is all about what the title says, what do you guys think is better... VORTEX BOWL OR TANGIERS PHUNNEL BOWL and why?

Both. They both basically do the same thing.

I have a funnel b/c its just what I happened to buy and I like how they look. Nothing more really. I also Like how easy it is to clean. I do not use a mod.

I bought a vortex and a phunnel at the same time. I decided to try out the vortex first. It was so good I didn't bother trying the phunnel. I will soon though.

As everyone says they both will do the job the same. I used to use my phunnel all the time but I broke it and decided to go for a vortex. After smoking from both of them I lean a bit more towards the vortex because it is shorter and I can use a standard windcover on it without rigging something up with my tongs. Also I felt that it took a bit more trial and error to get my phunnel to smoke properly with certain tobaccos but with the vortex I had it smoking easy on my first try. With either bowl you will not be disappointed.

Phunnel wins. The airflow is a lot better and it wastes less shisha.

Otherwise, they smoke identically.

I just wanted to put my two cents in, If you look at the homemade section there are about 50 phunnel mods, I don't see why I would buy a bowl that I have to tweek to make smoke just right, and basicly they are just turning it into a vortex, its easier to pack a vortex anyways, I mean there no reall trick to it...

you DONT have to tweak it to smoke right. People who buy knockoff chinese funnels may have to but not genuine Tangiers brand.

I have never used a mod in several kilos out of my funnel and I enjoy every smoke just fine.

People do stupid and mysterious things all the time but I do not let it define my world lol.

+1 to this. I tried a MOD a few times in the beginning but found it really didn't do anything except use less tobacco. Since I am trying to keep my smoking ahead of my buying it was working against me.

There's a mod for the vortex that cbyer posted that is probably the simplest (yet smart of him to think of) mod you could ever do on an item, ever.

Basically you just line the bottom with aluminum foil and that way you don't have to use so much damn shisha just to pack the thing. I haven't tried it yet though, but I'm sure it will work perfectly.

yeah I saw it.. I normally put cheaper tobacco in there like nakhla mint.. in the bottoms.. i dont want to use this alluminium there..
and also vortex have to be cleaned.. cus if the shisha is juicy then it will go down the small holes and block them and so on..
but small phunnel with mod takes perfect ammount of shisha.. about 10 grams..
doesnt have to be cleaned ever... perfect draw and everything is just perfect with small tangiers phunnel with scalli....

btw.. hey BobM. whatsup..

vortex has too much restriction on the pull. (i smoke a km)

a phunnel is ideal because there is no restriction, and it works better. the whole thing gets smoked if you smoke long enough. i'm always stuck with leftover tobacco with a vortex.

and the vortex's holes get fuckin clogged all the time, i have to take a knife to it if i want it to work right.

the vortex is a good bowl, but the phunnel is better. :P
