Default should I get a phunnel bowl?

There are so many people talking about the phunnel bowl lol. I am undecided about buying one because I have a few questions: does it make the smoke thicker? Does it make it smoother? If I use 2 coconaras and a wind cover, will that be enough heat for the whole bowl?

I might buy this one depends on HP replies.

I wouldn't recommend a Chinese phunnel like the one shown in the link. Have not heard anything good about them.

Now an authentic Tangiers phunnel I'd definitely recommend, especially if you tend to smoke any shisha that is juicier or has a finer cut.

I would get a real phunnel bowl. Trust me it makes a difference. Anyways only thing i use is my phunnel since i broke all my regular bowls and i just destroyed my vortex. But even so i luv my phunnel.

Definitely get a Tangiers Phunnel, don't get the Havana bowl. I bought a havana bowl, and it smokes good but I hate having to mod it. I'd much rather smoke right away.

I've tried the Tangiers, Havana, Chinese, Grand. and MNH Glass bowls. The Tangiers bowl has worked the best for me.

If you do get a Tangiers bowl, I'd advise to use a small one.

I have a tangier's small phunnel and I have a vortex now too. Both work great, the phunnel is for parties the vortex is just for me. I find the vortex gives better flavor and I always use my egyptian bowl when using a drier shisha (Nahkla)

I personally think it's a waste of time, doesn't make much difference in taste and even the small wastes too much tobacco and same goes for the vortex. If you really want one I would reccomend the mnh mini glass phunnel which uses about 10g if that and definitely makes a difference to the taste because you get a glass screen so no coals or ash cab effect the taste of the tobacco.

most funnels are tooooooo big! What a waste of tobacco! At most I would say get a vortex bowl. I also like the "Saudi Bowl" that hookahcompany sells for $3.95 http://www.hookahcompany.com/colored..._2637_prd1.htm not a funnel bowl but is on of the best all around bowls for all tobaccos.

if you buy a phunnel get a real on. personally i like the vortex better than the phunnel after using the phunnel here and there for a year and the vortex some for a month or so. the phunnels are just really big and waste tobacco and seem to not bake as fully

Default Re: should I get a phunnel bowl?

it all depends on how much you smoke.

if you smoke 15 minute-30minute sessions dont get a phunnel. youll just complain about it later

if you smoke for more than an hour and a half, get a phunnel. its the best thing you can do for longevity and flavor.

also if you are financially burdened and are frequently low on tobacco, do not get a phunnel. my small phunnel holds 25-30g and that is way too much for most people.

it really depends on you as a person. for me the decision is very simple. every time i smoke its for a few hours. i kill every bowl i smoke. if i had to use an egyptian bowl, the juice would run out, flavor and clouds disappear and id have to repack and use even more tobacco than i currently do. i stick to phunnels.

I would get the small tangier's or get a vortex depending on how long you smoke for really. I know there are times i only smoke for like 30 to 45 min but mostly its 1 or 2 hours so its really on how long you smoke

Default Re: should I get a phunnel bowl?

I bought a medium phunnel not too long ago and have never looked back my only issue is the heat management is trickier and the amount of tobbacco it uses on solo sessions is quite a lot but i ordered a small phunnel from ********** so ill see how that goes it definetly is a great bowl though especially for keeping sticky shisha juice in the bowl and not staining your stem! (tangiers all the way btw vortexes are pretty good too so i hear)
