Frenchy,

I think your best bet to start is a standard Egyptian bowl.

You can find some here: http://**********.com/product.sc?pro...&categoryId=12

I think Hookah-shisha covers most of the bowls here.. minus the vortex.

http://www.hookah-shisha.com/hookahl...and-types.html

They have like a paragraph on each of the bowls they carry at least so that's a good place to start as far as finding out what bowl is best for you.

And a lot of hookah users have a few different bowls they like to use, personally i use both an egyptian and a vortex. hope that helps..

Egyptian is a good place to start. Can't go wrong with the standard egyptian.. I still like them over my vortex and phunnel.

an egyptian is the best bowl imho... i have a small tangiers funnel, med tangiers funnel, vortex, large and small egyptian.. from those 5 i use my egyptians at a constant.. the others i use rarely.. so if you ask me ide say go for a egyptian.. it will save you the trouble that the funnel or vortex will give you like putting wrapping the foil to loose on the funnel.. or clogging the holes on the vortex..

the egyptian is problem free.. all it asks is not to overpack it lol

Bowl Selection

The standard Egyptian:
http://www.**********.com/product.sc...&categoryId=12
The Vortex
http://www.**********.com/product.sc...&categoryId=12
Tangiers funnel available in S, M, LG
http://www.**********.com/product.sc...&categoryId=12

Honestly i think the best and easiet bowl to use is the vortex, its depth makes packing a sinch not to mention it keeps all the juices from flowing down the stem. Simply sprinkle shisha in till the spire holes, then foil, and whatever you us to heat and enjoy

I would get a funnel and a egyptian bowl it always good good have more then one bowl. If you brake one you have a back up. I personally use a funnel the most. Experiment and see which one you like better.

I would keep a vortex as a daily user, and a deeper bowl egyptian as a secondary.

I like having a variety, but after yesterday I have to go with a vortex bowl. Just an amazing bowl and seems so versatile.

Tangiers Phunnel. Done and doner. People rage over the vortex on this site, but I've only had decent at best experiences with it. Not to say it's not a good smoke, I just tend to get better clouds and flavor from my phunnel and egyptian.

the vortex and TPB keeps the juices in the bowl unlike the egyptian that lets it run down into the water

Egyptian.
I have the combo bowl, and it is good for about 1/2 hour, but when it is time to move the coals, it is difficult to do.

So back to the Egyptian.
I also only smoke Nakhla.
