I prefer a Vortex, but the only thing i have to compare it to is a small mya bowl.
Ive heard alot of good things about Funnel Bowls.

It all depends on what type of tobacco you are smoking. For best all around bowl I would say the vortex. It is my go to bowl for almost everything. Its the perfect size for me and it has great smoke and flavor. If you plan to smoke tangies though I would get a phunnel.

i honestly prefer using a small ceramic mya bowl. I like my phunnel if i can get it working but its hard for me to get it started. Major reason i prefer a phunnel would be because the juice doesnt drip down the stem so it makes clean up easy.

Phunnel - most of the time - I'd say better option for wetter shishas (Vortex is comparable option)
Small Egyptian bowl - sometimes - for dryer shishas when I want shorter session.

Same for me. Vortex and funnel are essentially the same.

I prefer a small phunnel bowl. I have friends that use vortex bowls and they are very comparable. I use phunnel bowl most of the time but every now and then i will kick out the egyptian bowl. I guess it is all about your personal taste.

+100

IMO too much emphasis is placed on the bowl. I've used every type and never really noticed any difference. The funnel seems more likely to burn the tobacco in my experience. These days I just throw it all in an egyptian.

The best bowl is the phunnel. If packed right and with the right heat management I find that I get the best sessions out of this. However, a vortex works almost as well. A OG egyptian does work well with every tobacco. I find that it's more of heat management + packing method that gives the best sessions

i own a tangiers small phunnel, 3 vortex's, and ton of egyptian bowls...but i packed up all of those and threw them in the corner of my closet, because the best bowl that i use for everything is my crown classic. I usually smoke wetter shisha's like tangiers, AF, and mizo and it's perfect. it's pretty much an egyptian and phunnel put together. I get the bold flavor like an egyptian and my downstem stays clean like what the phunnel provides. It's really worth the money for a glass bowl, and it looks nicer than my other bowls.

I've used both vortex and Egyptian bowls and they're both really great.

However, I prefer the vortex over the Egyptian just because it's generally a bigger size and precious juice doesn't go down your bowl. I usually use the Egyptian to conserve shisha (shorter sessions). Usually by myself.
Also, the drier the tobacco, I'll tend to use an Egyptian.

Shallow wide egyptian is just perfect for everything...you can under pack and use half coals for a quik 30 minn smoke or overpack for a 1 hour 30 minn smoke..works for all tobacco types as well.

I use a vortex 80% of the time.
The other 19.9% I use a egyptian clay bowl.

And in case of emergencies I use a cheap mod bowl.
