Default Modify your phunnel

I have a small and medium phunnel, and most of the time the small is perfect. However, it still lasts two hours if I pack it for best results. If I rolled up some aluminum foil and used it as a space filler to make my session shorter would it hurt the flavor? If the answer is yes, is there a home made mod I could make?

I've never thought of that, but it might just work, maybe if you put that spacer up against the outer rim and not against the spire?
The main problem I can think of is the foil spacer heating up your shisha a bit more? But that might just result in 1 less coal *shrugs* I think I'll stop there before I get ahead of myself lol

I actually do that for my tangiers phunnel and my crown jewel phunnel. What I do is role up some on the bottom and the make a lining one so that the juices don't fall and hide. Try that out

Why not just use less tobacco? I have some German friends who just dont fill up the bowl and smoke perfectly, they actually make fun of us for jamming the bowl full and wasting tobacco LOL

If I am smoking a funnel and want a shorter session I have found that packing a 1/4 of the bowl and only making hole in that area works great. Just make sure you don't use too much heat. It works so well for me that I would love a glass insert that would fill the rest of the bowl. I do always pack that portion fairly tight.

Default Re: Modify your phunnel

i was trying to figure out something myself, i used to be heavily involved in art back in high school and thought of a pretty good idea i want to take some clay and mold a spacer on the bowl itself take it out and bake it, only problem is i dont have access to a kiln (thats what u bake clay in) but i have used this stuff called sculpey its a polymer clay that you can bake in your own oven. i have a strong gut feeling that it will work, i plan on trying this out in the near future.

Can someone post a picture of their mod? I have an idea of what you mean, but I'd like to get a better picture in my mind before I try this.

Why buy another bowl when your existing one works fine? Just use less tobacco.

Careful with the solvents involved with that clay
