I use a Tangiers med phunnel bowl with a scalli mod and the vortex. Both are better than any traditional bowl The scalli mod is glass, easy to break and impossible to clean I just started using on my phunnel bowl the 5 second mod and it is the best of all and free.

i just got my vortex in and i have to say i am rather impressed with it, holds a bit less than a small phunnel and seems to smoke a bit better, i noticed with a scali mod/phunnel you get weird flavor until the bowl is really going which takes 15-20 mins because the heat just needs to slowly work its way through, where as with the vortex you get the same flavor pattern as a regular bowl

I have both and I broke my scalli mod and ordered two new ones which I received today. While waiting for my new scalli mods I have been using the 5 second mod http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/searc...earchid=184188
I have to say I never notice a flavor caused by the scalli mod but when I used one today I said to myself that the taste was off and I think you may be correct, that it does give off a flavor or alter the flavor. After one bowl I went back to my 5 second mod and noticed a difference. The vortex is a great bowl, it holds a lot less but I think it works just as well and it's a lot easier to use than a phunnel bowl without modifications like the mods.

Its a tricky thing, I've used both The phunnel I use is about the same size as my vortex... But They both have their strong points...

The vortex is an easier bowl to pack and you don't have to worry as much with the foil... the vortex from my experiance is great for dry shisha like hookah hookah or naklha, etc...

The phunnel is eaiser to clean, and works much better with wet shisha, Like al fakher which I find you have to pack alittle thighter which would be a problem with the vortex causing a restricted pull...

All in all the vortex is a more flexable bowl and much eaiser to use... and the size is just about perfect, but lately I've been using my egyption bowl that came with my km and get the best results with the least amount os shisha.
