There are a ton of threads on the differences between the phunnel and vortex. Some prefer one over the other. Neither bowl is going to be bad. I have only tried a phunnel. I prefer to just use my egyptian, since I don't smoke brands that are overly wet like tangiers. I would suggest searching the forum and seeing what others say though.

Use the search bar ffs. All of the questions you have asked can be answered with some reading.
A scali mod is a cap that goes over the spire of a phunnel and allows airflow as well as keeps the foil from being sucked down to block air. Phunnel vs. Vortex once again do a search, this thread has been done to death and I've given my experience before. Lastly glass bowls do hold heat better from my experience but its a double edged sword. It can be too much heat and cause issues but as long as your careful you can smoke wonderfully with one. My favorite benefit of glass vs clay is that my glass bowl gets going in around 15-30 seconds where it takes 2-3 minutes with clay to heat up the bowl.

Aww cut him a break lol.

Glass Bowl: Holds heat better, can crack and break, gets hot quick.
Clay Bowl: Stronger, takes a while to get hot but once it does, it holds it better than glass IMO.

I'm going to have to side with CypherEnigma... I've only been on this forum a few months and I've seen multiple threads discussing all of your questions. Search bar first, then new topic if you can't find anything, and never insult other members.

I hate seeing threads that can easily be found, but I won't call people out on them unless it's something like "hav u guize herd of Al Fakher? iz it gud?". anyways, here's the essence of a scalli mod.

1. use less shisha as it takes up space in the bowl
2. directs smoke under and through the tobacco
3. impossible for foil to get sucked down and prevent potential burning
4. it's not necessary to use one

never insult other members? apparently you missed the part where the OP was told to use the search ffs?
Its ridiculous for members to act this way with a new person asking a question that has been asked multiple times. As always you are not required to respond to a thread, if you make the choice to read the thread and choose to answer it dont be rude and make statements like the above or criticize a new member looking for help.

Easy, people.

Looks like his question was answered well by several people. Hopefully he can use the info and become a more well-rounded hookah smoker!

Let's not turn this thread into an argument...

I used to run into problems with the foil catching in the spire with each hit, but after we mastered the hole setup of a phunnel, the scalli mod becomes pointless. I own one and find no use in it to this day. I just feel like an idiot that lost 8 dollars.
