Default Just received my first Vortex...

Hello all,

New to the forums but I have been browsing for a little while now, and I want to personally thank everyone for making me more knowledgeable about hookahs and all that other jazz.

My girlfriend ordered me a Vortex, and i just smoked some Starbuzz Melon Dew with a cold glass of Strawberry kool aid and it was fantastic!

Very flavorful and a pleasant to smoke. My best friend is skeptical about the vortex head (he has never heard of it or smoked out of it) so I will be going to his house and show him how clutch this head is.

Once again thanks people.

Just the regular size .. I have to do an exact measurement but it says it holds 25 to 30 but the way I setup mine it is about 20-25

the vortex is my goto bowl when it comes to tangiers, not so much on other tobaccos unless they are drippy but i think it is much better than a phunnel for tangiers along with using a lot less

Lasts me and others smoking with me approx two sets of natural coals. It all depends on the brand of tobacco, certain flavors last longer than others, etc.

Come on over matt .. I'll set ya up an enjoyable smoke that will last two sets of coals. The secret is less coal (about two coconaras) and more windcover (to consolidate the heat around the bowl)

i think it is also partly that i pull a lot, i can get half way through a 2nd set for sure, i also pack the bowl a bit low because i get a better even heat so that might all add to it

i pack it like any other bowl, nothing really special, just fluff the tobacco in, leave a gap 3 ch coals (i think 3 needed a bit of hanging off but i havent used it for a while cause i broke it)

what I did was pack like a regular bowl. The only difference was that I took a toothpick, and moved the shisha away from the 4 holes within the bowl. I made sure those holes were clear and then I put the foil over it. I would make a video but there is already a bunch of "how to" vids on packing Vortex heads.

I've found that my phunnel works better for Al Fakher, but going to try Mizo in the Vortex and Starbuzz also.
