Default Vortex or Phunnel Bowl?

I'm going to be making a purchase tonight and one of the things on my list i want is a vortex bowl. I know they both do about the same, help keep the flavor but which one do you use/prefer?

I use and prefer a Phunnel, mostly because i'm a neo-traditionalist and I also like to support American businesses as much as I can... And not support Chinese ones as much as I can...

I have the phunnel, vortex, mya ceramic bowl, and Egyptian bowls and it all comes down to how well you pack each bowl. If you know how to pack these bowls correctly, you will always get a very enjoyable session. At this point it really makes no difference to me. They're all perfect in their own way. I think for the novice the vortex and phunnel are definitely a good choice and hard to mess up. I like using the phunnel with al fakher because I don't want the juice dripping on my tray or into the stem. Other than that, there's not much difference.

I use Egyptian bowls for the majority of my tobacco(Nakhla) but if you're really into the wet tobaccos then Vortex or Phunnel will do you well. I can hardly justify packing a small phunnel or vortex anymore though.

i've only used a phunnel, and i love mine. i've heard great things about both bowls, and I don't really think you can go wrong. my understanding is that the vortex is a little bit easier to pack, but at the phunnel, when done right, can have better results...correct me if i'm wrong
