Default Vortex: Round 2

Got home yesterday and opened my package from Hookah Hookah. In it I find my 100g of Atomic Fireball and my second vortex bowl. If you guys don't remember, I bought a vortex a few weeks back and after 20 minutes everything was done. It did not matter if I used 1 coconara or 3. I didn't see what the hype was about.

Well I can say today, that my last vortex had to be defective somehow. I left instructions for Hookah Hookah to send me a vortex with the holes on the spire as close to the top as possible, which they did. I loaded a bowl of Atomic Fireball into this vortex, put on 3 coconaras, and was impressed. The flavor was magnificent, the clouds were amazing, the heat management was super easy, and I have found my new go to bowl. I see what the hype is all about now.

When I took the first draw the smoke was so huge and thick, my wife literally had to fan it with her hands so she could talk to me. This lasted almost threw the entire session, which went for 1 hour and 20 minutes. I will be ordering another vortex from them next month, just as a back up. This bowl is awesome! I am sorry I doubted this bowl a few weeks ago.

Vortex rocks! It is the real deal .. no hype about it. I can tell you plenty of products that are "hyped" (see number 4 below) .. Vortex is definitely not one of them!

You said "I see what the hype is all about now." I have to clear you and a ton of others on the definition of hype though .. hype is a very bad word and used improperly by billions of people.

hype 1 (hp) Slang n.1. Excessive publicity and the ensuing commotion: the hype surrounding the murder trial.
2. Exaggerated or extravagant claims made especially in advertising or promotional material: "It is pure hype, a gigantic PR job" (Saturday Review).
3. An advertising or promotional ploy: "Some restaurant owners in town are cooking up a $75,000 hype to promote New York as 'Restaurant City, U.S.A.'" (New York).
4. Something deliberately misleading; a deception: "[He] says that there isn't any energy crisis at all, that it's all a hype, to maintain outrageous profits for the oil companies" (Joel Oppenheimer).

I don't think hype was the wrong word choice for me. It seems like the vortex bowl gets the most publicity here and is very popular. However, when someone asks what bowl to get, 75% are vortex and then there are disputes for Tangiers phunnel and egypitian. So there is hype around the vortex in that aspect.

What I meant by my hype though is number 2. I got my first vortex and was excited to be trying it out. I had heard all these extravagant claims that this bowl is awesome. After smoking out of it 3 times, I felt it was exaggerated by y'all. Now that I have one that isn't defective, I see that the extravagant claims you guys made about it are true.

And if that's not a good explanation and I am off my mark, i mean it is Friday today and I am looking forward to the weekend then I correct it to say:

I see what all the fuss is about!

Merriam-Webster defines fuss as excitement.

Coconaras are awesome, by far my fav coals.
Nammor is awesome, I have a large black one and have another coming today
Vortex is awesome, recommend SS or Hookah Hookah, since they listen to your comments.

Atomic Fireball, well... it was alright. Not the punch of cinnamon I was looking for. I am looking for a cinnamon that is really strong and kind of burns like big red gum. But I will be getting more Atomic Fireball for sure.

Did they really send you a bowl with the spire holes closer to the top? very noticeably?

Capt, I didn't mean any disrespect to you at all! Sorry if you took it that way.

Personally I think that if more people tried the Vortex you would see less and less people recommending phunnels. lol they recommend it even when they have never used one!? That still dumbfounds me!

Anyway, that is just my opinion, I don't care what bowl people use, but I have my personal favorites I will recommend. It is all just opinion from everybody though and all opinions are welcome.

Opinion of a STRONG cinnamon! Try Nakhla Cinnamon or Al Fakher Cinnamon .. Cheers!

Yes they did. I just asked them in the comment section and they sent it. You actually couldnt get the holes any closer to the top without them connecting to make a phunnel. It is excellent. I will try and post pics tonight.

Sambooka, I did not take your post as disrespectful. I understand about clearing up misconceptions about words and I tried to clear up mine by explaining my reasoning. It is Friday, I am in a great mood, check out my incoming order to see why. If I came off as offended, sorry, not my intentions at all. I respect you, what you have to say, and what you do for this community.

Capt! I am happy it is Friday too!

I will be setting up a nice smoke tonight, something from my stash! Probably Nakhla Earl Grey with a hint of Al Fakher Orange. In my Vortex, with Coconara or Exoticas and my trusty Khalil Mamoon Amer (Eileen)

Enjoy your weekend!
