Asking a question like that is going to result in a ton of different opinionated answers that aren't going to help. There are certain bowls that work well with certain types of tobacco and some that don't. There is no "best" bowl.

I agree with Joe, if you're getting a new hookah they'll probably include an egyptian bowl (or any modern variation) for free, get a phunnel or a vortex, you'll have 2 different bowls for different type of tobacco.

Mod bowl/Mya bowls - crap
Egyptian bowl - good
Phunnel bowl - great

Why is mod bowl crap? Other than the amount of shisha it can hold it's not that much different from the egyptian, every bowl has its rightful use. I would rather smoke dryer tobacco (like nak) out of a mod/egyptian than a phunnel or a vortex, especially when overpacking.

I love the vortex bowl. Its the same idea as the phunnel. It uses less tobacco and it smoke great! Its the only bowl i use. I smoke SB and naklah out of it, and get great smoke and flavor.

Stick with the basic Egyptian until you master it. Then you can move on to other styles. I would suggest a vortex for the most part. It behaves well with most tobaccos whether they be wet or dry and does not come with the foil complaints that many have regarding the funnel.

Personally, I am a bigger fan of the funnel but it's huge and more expensive. Even the small is massive. You are paying for a hand made and carefully crafted piece rather than something mass produced. I have found that for Tangiers this is the best bowl. The heat capacity of the thick clay is great and works wonderfully for me.

Stay away fro multi-head bowls. They are a gimmick and pretty terrible.

Really though, a standard Egyptian bowl will treat you nicely for a long time and is damn versatile.
