Unhappy vortex bowl

ok, so its xmas and i get a new vortex bowl from my girlfriend, and after looking it over 2 of the holes are open and 2 of them are not open and they are glazed over, so the 2 holes that are open are on one side and the other 2 are sealed

my question is that has these happened to anyone else and how can i fix this problem or do i even need to worry about it??

Happened to me (only 1 hole though) - I contacted the vendor (Sahara Smoke in my case) and sent pictures - they sent a new one and didn't want me to bother sending the defective one back. If you can drill out the holes without breaking it, it'll work just fine. I have not attempted it yet, as I have the other.

Definitely take photos to send to the vendor, and I'd advise resolving the issue BEFORE attempting to drill it out. If it breaks in the process, you'd probably be SOL.

^I say do that

Vortex bowls seem to be really fragile seeing as I've dropped my funnel and egyptian many times but the one time I dropped my vortex it was no more.

I did the same thing and everything worked out perfectly. It seems to be a common defect amongst Vortexes. The best part is, the new bowl was much better than the original. On the first bowl, the holes were placed really low on the spire so not much tobacco would fit, but on the new one the holes were at the top of the spire so I could maximize tobacco quantity.

It's probably smokeable, but it'll probably have a tighter draw due to the additional restriction of air flow. Are the open holes on opposite sides of the bowl, or next to each other?

In either case, I'd contact ********** about the situation and see what he says. I'm sure he'll take care of you, but if you need to ship it back for some reason, it'll needs to be in unused condition. If you send him a PM on here, I'll bet he gets back to you before monday - then you'll know what you need to do.
