Default Phunnel - Yes or No

Hi.
Is phunnel worth of 5 Euro ? Approximately 8 $ ?

I have heard that there is big difference when i use wet tobacco such as StarBuzz or Al-Waha.
But does it make any difference when using kind of drier tobacco like Naklha ?

Thanx for advices.
And is there any tutorial on web saying how to make vortex mod from phunnel ?

The product's name is "Phunnel".

I highly doubt you would be getting an authentic phunnel bowl for ~$8 US overseas. Chinese knock offs can be found cheaper stateside but for pricing in Europe, I'd think that's pretty good.

I dunno. Here in Slovakia i can get it only from 1 shop som i'm not complaining about origin of it.

But the question is, if it makes some difference for dry tobacco like Nakhla and how to set it up properly.

is it a Tangiers phunnel or a knock off Chinese one?

If it's just €5 then I'd definitely pick one up, I have a Vortex but am going to get a Phunnel as each product has a fanbase so I thought to myself, 'what the heck, I'll just get both and see for myself'

p.s. congratulations on qualifying for the World Cup!

p.p.s. Tutorials on how to set up a Phunnel are in the users video thread, check out Patelbadboy2006 or Photolinger's threads. Personally, I have found them extremely useful.

Some say it does make a difference. Personally I think it does make it last longer but as far as flavor and setup, I have been going back to a regular Egyptian bowl for drier mu'assels. When I do smoke Nakhla out of a phunnel, I pack it in very tight with lots of fairly large holes in the foil, just like I do with Tangiers.

I think Nakhla smokes nice out of the phunnel. It doesn't smoke as long as wetter tobacco, but still smokes alright. At least as good as a standard bowl. I'll usually get 2.5 - 3 sets of coals out of bowl of wet tobacco, dryer tobacco like Nakhla It's usually done half way into the second set of coals.

Yes. Phunnels are the bomb, and that's a pretty good price.

Most likely it's not a real phunnel, so if you want.

funnels are definately worth it. i actually have the chinnese version in small. works perfectly! i guess i got lucky with the spire not behing as high or higher than the other rim.

if this one ever breaks i'll buy a real one, and a vortex for if/when i smoke by myself
