Default mya QT and phunnel - not impressed

i tried my new QT and phunnel last night, and the results were pretty poor. very little smoke. at first i thought i had packed the phunnel too light, so i added more shesha but it did not improve. since it was my first time using both items, i put the phunnel on my egyptian hookah and it worked fine.

is a phunel too big to be using with a QT? what are you guys using?

maybe i just stick to my egyptians.

You may have had to much water, I use my Qt and funnel and never get a problem out of it, other than being warmer than my Syrian

the pull was quite easy so i figured water level was ok. on my egyptian if i put too much water the pull gets harder.

i was getting too much air. the only possibility is that the bowl did not go the QT properly but it was stuck on very tightly so i don't know.

check your purge valve, its possible that the bb is stuck in the open position or it might actually be missing.

thanks bigpoppa. i just checked it and it seemed good so i don't think that's it, but i would not have thought of that so i'll try sparking it up again tonight and i'll check it in action.

i think i'll try it with my egyptian bowl too, just to check if it is better with that.

What did your hole pattern look like? If you poked holes over the center that could be the cause of too much air.

it's odd you say that, i for one never use myas but tonight i wanted to give my father in law a go at tangiers, i had my km as usual, he had a no name egyptian, something was wrong with his, i tried it and there seems like there may have been an inner leak, i only had a mya to give him to use, it was the mozza (long story but it's a mya that hasn't hit the US yet) it was hitting much better than the egyptian and just as good as my km. i didn't believe it. there are so many factors but i believe you can make any hookah work, maybe after trial and error.

I use a small phunnel with my Bambino all the time and have no issues. How much coal were you using?

Are you using a mod bowl grommet? I know that the standard silicone bowl grommets can't be used on my Mya QT when I use my Vortex bowl. I wonder if you'd have the same problems getting a good seal with the mod grommet and a funnel bowl.

well, lots of ideas...

i set it up again to test the BB in the purge valve, and it's tight.

the phunnel bowl i have came with a large grommet so i was using both that and the silicone one. i put that on now and the seal is tight. i thought i packed the bowl wrong but i took it right off the mya and put it on my egyptian, and it worked fine.

i started with 2 coconaras and then used 3. i was also using the tea light mod

i tested the mya for air leaks with the bowl on it and it looked good so i must have done something wrong. i'll try again tonight and see where i go. i'll also try with a standard egyptian.

tried it again. better than last night but tonight i also tried the standard mya bowl and that had more smoke in each pull. given that the phunnel worked well with my egyptian i don't think there was a problem with how i packed it.

i think the QT is just too small for a phunnel. i also think that despite the mya being well build and quite nice, it just doesn't smoke nearly as well as a good old fashioned egyptian.

I smoke with a small funnel out of my QT and my KM Trimetal and I couldn't say there is a difference man.

+1. QT smokes awesome. I usually throw 3 naras and have a 3 ring hole pattern with a toothpick. Try not using the tea trick and let us know how it goes.

make sure the foil is on tight, makes a big difference with smoke etc...

i did all that. no tea light, foil very tight. mediocre results. like i said, i took the phunnel off and put it straight on my egyptian and it worked.

whatever i am doing wrong, it is only affecting the quality of smoke from the QT. very weird. maybe i'll try it with a vortex and see what happens.
