Default tangiers mini or small phunnel???

first off, does anyone know if the mini is still available? does it really make a major difference from lets say a small modern bowl? in what ways?

Unless you're local to the lounge, your best shot at a mini is if someone will sell one to you but expect to pay a lot if that happens. They are not regularly produced and not a stocked item at the lounge. I won't disclose why the last batch was made but there were still a couple left that I saw not too long ago. Whether or not he will sell one to you is a different story and some minis are/have been spoken for for some time now.

Minis are the worst performing of all the phunnels but most people want one because they're the smallest ones. Actually, up until this most recent batch, minis have all came out larger than the initial target size and weren't that much smaller than smalls.

They're probably all reserved then. I was looking at them last weekend.

From what I can gather from reviews and discussions on this forum the Phunnel/Funnel Bowl has the center spire through which the smoke is drawn and prevents the juice from the tobacco from running down the stem into your water and Ashtray secondly this reservoir of juices keeps the tobacco moist for longer during a smoking session thus prolonging the session. in a modern or Egyptian Bowl the juices are free to run down the stem and into the water and ashtray secondly as the tobacco has molasses/Honey and in some instance Glycerin added to it with heat being applied from the coal this causes these normaly slow flowing ingredients to be more runny and free flowing. (eg. When Beekeepers wants to remove honey from a storage tank to pour into Bottles they normaly turn on the tank heaters which will "melt" the Honey making it flow faster and better. Honey/ Molasses also has the tendancy to crystelize if left standing for long on a shelf (sand sugar) if that crystelized product is gently heated it will melt again and become Honey/Molasses. Thus the tobacco in the modern bowl will smoke a shorter session and is more likely to burn if proper heat management is not applied.
