Default Small or Medium Tangiers Phunnel?

Hey all, thought I'd ask before buying. I have a 35" KM and I'm not sure if I should be getting the medium or small tangiers phunnel bowl? I normally smoke with anywhere from 2-5 people including myself. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Small. Definitely small. My small bowl gets me around three hours. And the medium, as I just found out last weekend can get me nearly 7 hours (as ridiculous as that sounds, it's true). By my estimation, the large Tangiers is more smoking than any one person should ever do at once.i

Honestly!? My recommendation is a Vortex ..

.. but that is my preference .. so to answer your question ..

.. go with a small ..

If you are rich and can purchase large quantities of tobacco .. go with a medium ..

I don't see the need for a medium or large .. a small is BIG enough!

Smalls are damn big. It's by far the biggest bowl I have. It's a great bowl but you really never need to buy anything larger than a small.

Agreed, the small is ridiculously overly sized .. even for a small .. don't let "small" fool you!

I have a small and a medium (got the medium by accident, ordered a small) they just sit and collect dust, the small gets used once in a ble moon. Been more into the Vortex and regular egyptians for the more traditional stuff. (aka. Nakhla - that I don't want to waste on a huge bowl)

I use my vortex more than anything at this point. I am still a big supporter of the traditional Egyptian bowls but the vortex has really taken it's place as my most often used bowl for lots of reasons.

Uh oh I ordered a small and a large Tangier's funnel bowls, looks like the small will be getting much more smoke time
Do you guys think the large can go 10+ hours?
Or say if you start a bowl up in the morning, smoke for like 1.5 hours, then a lil after lunch, and then after dinner you rip it long into the night... do you think a large would be good for this? Granted I'm not that lazy and would probably prefer smoking different shisha each session, I just want to know in case I ever become bedridden for a day and don't feel like doing anything besides eat, sleep, and smoke

You could setup the small to smoke three times a day lol

The large should last you a month .. hehe

phunnel has a hole and the Vortex has a platform with holes in a different location. I like the Vortex better because the platform keeps the foil from getting sucked down into the hole and it holds a little less tobacco.

Please don't speak as if that's true of all smalls. Though mine are on the smaller side, the largest of my smalls holds 36g of Tangiers when fully & properly packed. My minis average ~30g with only one being considerably smaller than the other minis. With other brands, I can pack less. I can easily pack more than any of that in my vortex bowls.

With a proper pack, foil setup, and a good Tangiers phunnel, the foil getting sucked down is never an issue for those who know what they are doing. The draw of a vortex bowl is more restrictive than a phunnel, to the point where I do not like smoking out of them with any KM or Temsaah that I have. I only use them with my Mya now. FWIW, I do prefer a wide draw. The phunnel is much easier to clean as well.

Mediums smoke better than the smalls and larges smoke better than the mediums. Large phunnels aren't more than one person can handle; it's what we smoke out of at Oddessey all the time. It also doesn't waste moassel if you recycle the tobacco at the bottom of the bowl, which is something even Eric highly recommends doing.

Here is what I recommend: If you are going to be smoking with several people and more than just one session of coals, I do recommend a medium. Heat management is easier IMO and the smoke is better (it's fuller if that makes any sense to you). If you are going to be smoking by yourself and occasionally with others, then get a small. If you are not going to be smoking Tangiers but instead other "wet" moassels, get a vortex and save some money (unless your fortunate to be in a position where you can get Tangiers phunnels for less than a vortex). If you will be smoking Nakhla and other "drier" moassels, don't waste your money and stick with a traditional Egyptian bowl until you have better reason to buy a different bowl.

We've gotten three hours of solid smoking with no burning taste out of my Vortex. I have read that some of the phunnels suffer from the issue Sambooka mentions, but can't say all of them do. If you are going to get a phunnel, DO NOT get a knockoff IMO.

You are a very wise man! That is how I feel too .. I have a tiny egyptian for my Nakhla! and use the Vortex for the wetter tobaccos. I could certainly live with just a good old egyptian bowl though (any brand!)

I think standard Egyptian style is fine. But I do really like having a small phunnel or vortex bowl handy if you tend to smoke wetter shisha as Sambooka said.

small is more than enough, but medium is great with friends not to good for a personal session.

Also i just got a new tangiers small phunnel but the phunnel is too high, the foil gets sucked on top, my foil is tight etc.

So how can i fix this please?

thanks/.
