I find that you have better control using foil, but screens are convenient.

I prefer using foil. I think it makes heat management easier and less ash goes in the bowl

+1 When it comes down to it, it's all about heat management and foil gives you much better control over it.

aren't most screens slightly con caved into the bowl? if so that seems like alot of work trying to wrap foil around that bowl lol.

foil is also my personal choice. the whole point in the foil is since its a thin piece of aluminum it can transfer the heat to the tobacco but also strong enough to prevent the flame from scorching the tobacco. you might as well just double wrap your bowl. its what i do and i think it gives a little more strength to my foil, transfers good heat, less likely to screw up punching too. plus its cheaper and if you don't pack too tight or mess up punching your bowl i don't see y you should ever scorch your shisha.

I used a screen in the past. Now I only use foil and I prefer it as you can adjust the hole pattern depending on the bowl and tobacco

Heavy duty Rynolds Wrap has become a staple in my room, I have never tried using a screen but I see no reason to either. If it aint broke, dont fix it! Only things I change is the layering, 1 layer of foil for anything like Nahkla, SB, Al Faker and 2 layers for anything like HH/HF and JMs.

Depending on which bowl I use, it will vary. Normally I smoke out of my medium sized mya-saray Egyptian style bowl, and I prefer a metal screen. The headshop by me sells the perfect sized screens for those bowls. I also find that with a large sized three king's brand coal, no extra air gets in, it covers the entire thing, and I get more flavor and thicker smoke out of it than when I use foil. It's all personal preference, but when it comes down to it, it really matters about what kinda bowl you're using.

I always use a screen, I really shouldn't though it definitely isn't as good for heat management. The stuff I smoke is pretty resilient usually but still, it would improve my sessions.
