Default All I can say is WoW!!!!!!!!!!

For the first time in 6 - 7 years of Nargile smoking I tried smoking out of a phunnel bowl and all I can say is WoW!!!!!!

I packed a bowl of Starbuzz Blue Mist and in all honesty I feel like I have only just smoked nargile to its true potential. The flavour!!! The HUGE DENSE CLOUDS just AWESOME!!!!!! And it lasted for about an hour and a bit!!!!

I've smoked the same flavour out of my egyptian bowl and mya bowl and I liked it then but smoking it out of a phunnel it was 100x better!! Now i know what the fuss was about. Truely awesome. It does use more coals and more tobacco but it is soo worth it. For the hour session I started with four coconara's then 40 - 45 mins in put on two cubes and another coconara for the remainder. I have never enjoyed my King tut 4 hose egyptian nargile like this EVER!

Thank you hookapro and all its wonderful members without you guys i woulda never known!

My vortex bowl should hopefully be here with some AF peach, mint and guava
tobacco from Hookah John in the next couple of weeks I cannot wait and hope that the vortex will live up to the hype like the phunnel did !

take it breazy ppl !

What's the difference between a vortex and a phunnel bowl?
I know there's a difference in the shape but apart from that.

A matter of tastes.


I will tell you, both bowls are fantastic, but there are some tobaccos that beckon to be smoked out of egyptian bowls. Never be without one.

the top pic is of a phunnel where it has a large hole and is shaped like a funnel you pack the tobacco around it stops the juices from leaking into your Nargile, enchances flavour etc



this pic above is the vortex same packing method but instead of a large single hole there are holes around the funnel area and the top it blocked.

Some people have trouble with phunnel bowls when packed in correcly or the phunnel being too high where it sucks the foil down into the hole Im assuming the vortex avoids this. I was lucky as my phunnel bowls funnel part was below the rim and when packed properly and the foil wrapped tightly over the edges of the bowl it doesnt suck down.

Hope that helps.

Welcome to the world of taste, my friend! The phunnels and vortexes are truly revolutionary...I've never been able to enjoy one bowl of shisha for an hour and a half straight!

I've never gotten to say that about my funnel or vortex. I'd gladly use my egyptian any day before the newer designs. I'm glad you get good sessions out of the funnel, just doesn't do it for me though.

I'm very pleased with my phunnel, it really makes the session last much longer, preserves the juices and flavor, and keeps your downstem cleaner. Never have had personal experience with the vortex, but I'm glad you're as happy with the phunnel as I am! Cheers!

Not going to lie, I prefer a phunnel to a vortex. But do use my vortex more. The vortex uses about 5g less on a light pack than a phunnel with a light pack. Phunnel to me is more for company or for when I really need my tobacco to go the distance (5g worth ). I feel that the spreading out of tobacco also gives me more heat management too.

Yeh I do love it I just tried some Romman Good Time's and previously I really didnt like this flavour at all it had an overpowering citrus taste that was kinda harsh, and even this thru the phunnel was 100x better i actually enjoyed it. The batch i have is a really dry batch though and i think it woulda enchanced the flavour if it was a bit more wet, even so it was nice really happy with the phunnel !

I absolutely love my funnel. I bought a vortex to see what all the fuss was about and I prefer to use my funnel even if it takes more shisha. I get better flavor and smoke with my funnel, easier to clean too since nothing sticks to the bowl like on my vortex.

Don't get me wrong though, the vortex is still awesome, just not as awesome as my funnel lol

Glad you enjoy the phunnel. To be honest I like both. They both smoke the same for me. I prefer my vortex over the phunnel due to the height, vortex is not as tall. Other than that I could care less which bowl I use. Get the same smoke from them all.

I recently had the same experience, I like the fact that the heat management on the phunnel requires almost no effort on my part
