Default How do I decide what size phunnel to buy?

After reading on here quite a bit over the last couple days, I'm thinking it's time to move up to phunnel bowels and natural coals. But, I'm having difficulty deciding what size phunnel to buy. Tangiers makes three sizes. I've read that larger bowels are harder to heat properly.

Any advice in picking one?

Also, is Coconara the way to go on natural coals?

I would get a small or medium. obviously the bigger the bowl the longer your session will last but you will also go through alot more shisha. you can get a good hour and a half out of a small phunnel bowl.

I think that a small funnel is perfect for one person or more. I usually smoke by myself and I only smoke for a hour so 1 set of coal on my small funnel does the job but if I had people over and I want to smoke more I can throw on another set of coals and smoke for another 30-45mins.

As for the natural coals I would say going with coconaras, but if you are a budget smoker I would suggest ******* hookah naturals since they are a little cheaper and you get more coals for your money.

I agree with the above. I like coconaras, but I use *******s for the cost. I also got a sample of Al Fakher coals. They burn similar to coconaras, that is to say a little "cleaner" then *******s but they are a bit irregular in size. I think the price is somewhere between that of cocos and *******s. Buy a small box of each and see which you prefer.

I have no experience with a phunnel, but I'm planning on getting a small one myself as it appears to be plenty large.

Great. Thanks for the advice, folks. I'm going to go with a box of coconaras.

Now, I don't usually smoke by myself. There's almost always at least two or three other people with me. That being the case, would it be smart to go with the medium phunnel, or do you still think the small will be sufficient?

Yeah it sounds like a medium funnel would be better for 3-4 people. You can still smoke a medium funnel buy yourself to, just don't use as much shisha or check out some of our videos and make a mod for your funnel so use less shisha.
