Foil sucked into the center I bet. Make sure your foil is really tight, poke a hole in the center or try the binder clip mod.

funnels usually smoke very smoothly. Be sure your tobacco isn't clogging the hole and that you have enough holes in your foil.

Maybe the spire needs to be sanded down... the foil maybe is getting sucked into the center.
Is it a tangiers phunnel bowl?
Maybe your not poking enough / big enough holes.

You could always get the scalli mod. It's a metal cap that goes over the spire hole and prevents the foil from getting sucked in.

Try that and you can gently sand the spire down to level as well

make sure the grommet is sealed tightly, I've have had problems with that in the past. Also, if you're using a larger km, larger gage hose, and a phunnel it's a big harder to draw in general haha.

This is usaully caused by something blocking the spire, (the center hole). Unclog the hole and you will be fine.

As everyone has said, it's more than likely a spire problem. Sanding it, using a mod, whether it be scalli or binder clip or whatnot, will help.

Simply take a piece of foil twist it to about the size of a toothpick place it across the whole bend it so it kinda stays on then put your foil on tightly poke holes and enjoy.
