Default votrex problem... flavour not as good as phunnel

I've just got my vortex... I tried it out yesterday.
And I've noticed that the flavour is verry weak. I've used the same sisha in my phunnel and it was way better.
It was also the first time I use coconara's.

The clouds were good, so I don't know what I did wrong.

Well, if you're used to a Phunnel and got it down, vortex might be a bit of at let down.. It just aint as good.

That was what I was afraid for.

Vortex bowls ROCK! I have both and use the Vortex exclusively now, when I am not using a standard Egyptian bowl.

Make sure your coals are lit all the way. Let them ash over before placing them on your bowl. I really like the coconaras! I use two of them on my vortex with a windcover. You will find you can use less coal and tobacco and still get great flavorful clouds.

Cheers!

I use both, like to switch between them all time the time. Never really noticed a difference between either bowls. The difference is all in the packing of the bowl and the charcoal management.

I've had similar issues that were caused by packing the tobacco in the vortex too tight. Try packing it looser and using a less tobacco....I love Coco Nara's as well. All I need is two on vortex and it's good for 45min to an hour.

I love the vortex, it has never let me down. Packing it is a little different than a funnel. You just have to get it down to science.
