Default I'm going back to my vortex!?

Well after about 4 months of smoking a phunnel every single day with at least one type of Nakha... I got a couple kilos last night & decided to try my vortex... When packed right I now prefer my vortex with nakhla... The mizo line is still my phunnel hands down... But the vortex just seems like it yields better results... I think the phunnel (since it was specifically made for Tangiers) is definitely meant for tangiers (AF, SB, JMs etc. if thats your style).

But just curious when you are smokin' your non mizo nakhla what type of bowl you use...

I'm going to miss using my phunnel daily... So hello mr. vortex.

*sigh*

The phunnel wasn't specifically made for Tangiers Noir. It wasn't even made for mu'assel. Use whatever gets you good results. Personally, my vortex bowls only get used when I'm in a situation where someone might bump the shisha. I would rather break a vortex than any of my other bowls.

I only use a vortex bowl! I love my vortex. I smoke SB and Naklah (non mizo) out of it. I get great results out of it every time.

I got a MYA Ceramic Bowl and I love it. I mostly smoke Nakhla and it smokes well out of that MYA bowl when using the overpacking method.

I rotate between my vortex, funnel, and Egyptian. They all work better for certain types of shisha.

I only use my egyptian for the most part, I'm a lone smoker so why waste the baccy. I only use my funnel or vortex when my girlfriend wants to use my egyptian on the QT. Or if I get bored I'll load one of my homemade bowls.

I tend to stick with my egyptian for the most part, but out of the two your talking about vortex for the drier shisha and phunnel for the wetter stuff, they just seem to work better that way, But I do like the vortex alittle better because you can be lazier when setting it up... but honestly I get the best smoke out of the egyptian that I got with my km, its wide and shallow and the egyptian seems to allow you to get the longest sessions out of the least amount of shisha...
