Default Phunnel Bowl

I know this subject has been talked a lot but I just ordered a phunnel bowl and I want to know if it's worth it. I've heard that with the phunnel you can make your sessions go longer because the "juice retention system" (yeah I named it) it has, so is it true!? or did I just waste 11 bucks in a bowl!? hahaha be honest with me, you won't hurt my feelings. Thx a lot!

shouldn't you have asked the questions first and then ordered? i think you got your system backwards there! LOL

but yes, i have a couple of phunnels and i absolutely love them. as to the sessions going longer, it is true, but i think it's only because you're using more tobacco. you'll enjoy it

LOL! I don't know if I ordered the small one, the only thing that saids in the site is "These Phunnel bowls range from 4 3/4" to 5" in height and are about 3" in diameter. It holds between 30 to 45 grams of shisha tobacco." So I think I ordered the big one

Never had a Phunnel, but I do have a vortex and I know it makes the session last a lot longer.

It's kind of Phunney (couldn't resist) I have seen more problem posted about phunnels than any other bowl types combined. That's what has turned me off on getting one.

it works similar to a Phunnel but the spire is covered on top with four holes in the sides of the spire.

A lot of people who use Phunnel bowls end up using a Scali mods because they use so much shisha and are not easy to pack and the Scalli solves those problems. In most cases in lieu of ordering what I just mentioned just get a vortex, it's a phunnel and a scalli mod all in one.

1- i love my phunnels, they last longer cause of the amount of tobacco.
2- the juice retention system XD just keep the flavor to the end
and finally,
3- YOU WILL NEVER get 6-8 hours out of a medium or a large phunnel bowl Patel, ive smoked a large all by myself, cooked all the way through lasted 2 hours and 12 min before the smoke died.

It all depends on the tobacco you were smoking and how many drags you take per minute, yesterday i got 2.5 hours smoking JM tangerine from a small phunnel, and using my medium and AF berry i got 4.5 hours once, and it was still going strong but i got tired of the flavour

So if you using the right tobacco, its packed for a long session you will get a long session

Is it correct that both, small and medium one, have the same depth and they just differ in diameter?

Phunnels are great IMO. I get great airflow, huge clouds, and about 1-2hr sessions with a small. The best part though is that the juices dont go down your stem. Ive always seemed to get good flavor with my phunnels as well. If you play around with the heat management, you'll have yourself a perfect smoke. I also have a vortex but i cant get the heat management quite right on it yet even though ive only smoked out of it like 2wice.

These threads probably have more to do with the Tangiers tobacco that they are packing in the phunnels, as opposed to the actual phunnel bowls themselves. Most people get annoyed with the amount of tobacco that is needed to really get a phunnel going. If you feel its a waste, then don't use one.
