Default yes yes the # vortex thread!

I ordered a vortex bowl and I hope it will arrive today (it probably does), and I got a few questions concerning the vortex bowl:
[IMG]file:///C:/Users/GEBRUI%7E1/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]
http://www.waterpijp-shop.nl/b_197.jpg that is the link of the vortex bowl btw.
- This vortex bowl seems rather small (5,5 cm, see link), is it smaller than a 'normal' vortex bowl?

- How much grams of tobacco can be put in the vortex bowl? Let's say a full bowl.

- Atm I got some Romman tobacco, wet, some Nakhla Peach/Mango and some rather wet Nakhla DA. Is it better to smoke the wetter ones (romman/DA) in the vortex and the other ones in a normal bowl, or can I smoke Nakhla Peach/Mango in the vortex bowl, for the same or even better results?

Thanks

That looks like the Genie Vortex Bowl, which is smaller and can only fit small hookahs. It wont work with medium and large hookahs. Here is a link: http://saharasmoke.com/store/catalog...l-p-17392.html

Here is a link to the normal sized vortex bowl: http://saharasmoke.com/store/catalog...l-p-17235.html

You can smoke Nakhla in the vortex bowl its just a matter of how well you pack it but I prefer the Egyptian. Also the Genie can hold 15-25g of tobacco.

That vortex bowl in the link you provided seems smaller than the standard one so it could be a Genie vortex. The question is which one did you order? A standard size Vortex holds 25 to 30 grams of tobacco.

A Vortex is usually better for the wetter stuff because it retains all the moisture at the bottom of the bowl but you can smoke any tobacco out of it. I primarily smoke Nakhla and I use my Vortex all the time. Just keep in mind that the packing method is critical so you might need some patience and practice to get it right.

I recommend the packing methods suggested in this thread: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20180

I just got the vortex shipped in here.

It is smaller than a normal one I think, a Kaya vortex bowl?

Anyway, got my Nakhla DA in right now with one quick light coal and a windcover. I get dense clouds with it, and the smoke is absolutely NOT harsh, but I don't get any taste from the DA. Anyone can give me a reason for that? I packed it like many video's on youtube. It is not harsh, just no taste.

Does the the da smoke fine in a Egyptian? Perhaps let it cook a little?

Nakhla DA has always been a tricky to me, 70% of the time it tastes like anise or like nothing and 30% of the time it tastes godly, the best taste ever

Well, maybe you have too many holes in your foil. A lot of airflow can get huge clouds, but small flavor. Try tightening it up a bit.

+1

I have the same bowl and was getting flavor but not a whole lot. Great clouds though, even on my tiny 10" hookah. Less holes is a good lace to start.
