Default Just got my first phunnel bowel and...

It's HUGE. I severely underestimated the size based on the picture at Hookah-Shisha. I suppose in the amount of shisha it holds it probably isn't much different from the Mya bowl. Regardless though, can I pack less shisha if I'm going to smoke alone, or will it refuse to smoke if I try that?

I also got some Coconara coals since everyone seems to believe they're the way to go. Lighting them seems challenging since I have neither a coil nor a gas stove. What do you suggest is going to be the best solution?

As for lighting the coals, go to walgreens and pick up a single coil burner, $10 and it works great.

I keep saying that those bowls are huge and a waste of tobacco .. but nobody listens!!

Now for some helpful advise .. try packing in half your bowl, and putting coals on that side only.

Okay, I'll give that a shot. I'll probably end up getting a second smaller bowl. Where would you recommend I pick up the other bowl? The other places I found them I didn't recognize and weren't coming up in first round Google searches which made me nervous.

What size funnel is it? The small is still beastly but not quite as over the top as the medium and large. With most tobacco you can use less and get away with it but it will take longer for the bowl to heat up to the smoking point. A mod will help you save tobacco. It's a cap that goes over the center spire and redirects the air through the tobacco, takes up space and stops the foil from being drawn into the hole. You can get a mod at MN hookah. Or you can make your own. Check out the how to section of the forums for further info.

I think we all should just decide that standard bowls that come with cheap little chinese hookahs are the best

My small is absolutely miniscule. 15 grams of tobacco per session ain't that much.

A small funnel bowl holds up to 50g of shisha. That's over half of what I normally pack in my standard Egyptian. The large Mya bowl holds up to 30g, so there's actually a pretty substantial difference. I second the recommendation of making or purchasing a Scalli mod, otherwise you're either going to be smoking for well over an hour or wasting shisha.

Just for future reference, most websites will list how many grams of shisha the bowl will typically hold. That will help you get a handle on how large they are. Think of it like this - you see a bowl that says it will hold up to 50g of shisha. Picture in your mind a 50g pack of shisha. That's a lot for one bowl.
