Default The Amazing Phunnel Bowl

Not that very many people here are unaware, but for the poor folks scouring google, I thought I'd share this.

My medium Tangiers phunnel bowl packed with Tangiers Static Starlight (which is excellent, by the way) was lit up last night about 10pm for a party. The hookah was packed up and put away at roughly 4am. With the help of a windscreen, we burned through only three sets of Coconara coals.

Here's what I found when I cleaned out the bowl this morning:





After five hours of near constant smoking there was still smokeable tobacco in the bottom of the bowl. I'm guessing it might've gone for another hour, maybe more.

So, at this point, I can't think of any reason why anyone doesn't have these bowls yet.

the thing is, for people who smoke alone, a small phunnel is even too big. it makes me feel like im wasting tobacco because (especially if im smoking tangiers) i dont usually like a session to last more than an hour and a half.

Agreed. I only use my phunnel when I want an extra long session. I've taken to packing my Tangiers in a small egyptian. This way, I only use about 7gr or so and the session only lasts about an hour.

Yeah, I know. I was thinking about it too. The small bowl will go for a good three hours before the flavor starts to fade. That's just too long. I'd really like it if they made an extra-small for personal smoking.

But the way I see it is an ordinary bowl burns all the way through in an hour to an hour and a half. But the last 15 minutes the flavor starts getting weak. It takes around the same amount of shisha to pack the small phunnel bowl. After an hour and a half there's still a lot of good tobacco left, but you're not really using very much more than you would have in a regular bowl. Even if you're throwing away some good tobacco, at least there was rich flavor for the whole hour and a half.

yeah phunnels can have ridiculous sessions, i've smoke a singhle bowl for longer than 3 hours, go to clean it out and is still about 25% of juicy tobacco on the bottom.
Love these bowls

Definitely a phunnel phan boy too. I got mine a few weeks ago, and ever since me and my friends are getting 2.5 hour+ sessions. They flavor is strong all the way through, and it's a great way to save some shisha. It definitely is too big for a personal sesh, but as far as parties or friend gatherings, this bowl is a beast.

They have some at my local shop, but they only have red and brown, and I'm very partcular about colors, unfortunately. Hopefully they get either a more neutral color (white, black, even grey) or green soon.

I just packed my small phunnel with Nakhla DA from a freshly opened package (read wet and sticky), with a fairly dense pack and weighed the contents. It came out to 23gr according to my digital kitchen scale.

Is mnhookahs the only place to get those things? They haven't been fairing well in the vendor review department lately.

maybe im misunderstood, but isnt the goal to not burn any shisha? that whole bowl looks burnt to a crisp except for the very bottom. seems like you had some harsh smoke there towards the end.

No, surprisingly it wasn't. Though toward the very end, it did begin to affect the flavor.

Oh, also, most of where the tobacco looks overly charred is actually just ash that fell through the tin foil as we kept burning coals.
