Default Vortex?

Hello,

So I was thinking about getting a vortex bowl, just to try something different. I wasn't sure if I should go with the regular, or the genie vortex, however. See, I smoke alone quite abit, so I was thinking that the genie might be a better option due to it holding less shisha, but I wanted to make sure it would fit on my hookah, because the female cavity on it looks a bit tighter than the normal Vortex. I have a KM 36" Trimetal.

Thanks in advance y'all.

Ohhh somewhere in there is an "out of context" and I am POSTING IT after this reply ..

I like the regular vortex .. it doesn't hold too much shisha. Less than those other funnel type bowls. The genie may be an excellent choice for you since you smoke alone a lot. Go for it! Either one would be great .. I like the vortex a lot.

Cheers!

Thanks for the reply . . . I may just go with the regular vortex . . . I just know that the phunnels I have holds quite a bit of shisha, more than I need, and seem to take a bit longer than standard egyptian style bowls to warm up. Good to know these are smaller.

It has a deeper meaning to me, I am not a satanist but this symbol is of significance to me. I don't really want to get into a religious debate on here.

Peronally i prefer my phunnel over the vortex as the phunnel holds less shisha then the vortex, and all the shisha seems to be cooked out of the phunnel but some is left over in the vortex, but that is probably my only complaint of it, but i would go for the genie vortex if your a single smoker

The genie is made for the smaller hookahs, I would go with the regular just to make sure it will fit, I must say its deffinatly a good buy, its one of my go to bowls.

I used to have that problem alot, but I experimented with packing it and I think I got it down, its ussually burnt all the way through, but you do have to pack diff brands diff. they all burn alittle diff... but i did post a diy in the homemade section that helps if you don't want to use as much shisha... its very easy you just twist up a peice of foil and make a little ring around the bottom it ussualy makes it about 1/2' less shallow...
