Default Where to buy a vortex from?

I desperately want to get a vortex bowl, but have heard mixed reviews about various vendors (plus being unemployed and broke is one thing stopping me from getting one right now). Some have the holes too low on the spire from what I've read and saw in videos.
Where have some of you gotten yours from that don't give you a problem and get the best sessions from?

I apologize in advance if there was already a thread about this, but I've searched and didn't see one.

The Crown Classic is definitely worth the money! i have 3 vortex bowls and i don't even touch them anymore... i definitely recommend the crown classic!

But to answer your question i would probably go with ********** for the vortex, gjr210 did a video on it check it out. I bought three vortex bowls from sahara smoke and yah the holes on the spire is pretty low....

IDK all my vortexes came from HH and all have the holes where they should be, plus if you're trying to save a few bucks hookahhookah is still running the 75% off all shipping promo.

all vortex bowls are made by one company ss if i am not mistaken.
just write in the special instructions that you want a bowl with the holes as close to the top of the spire as possible and all the holes drilled through.

Yea mine might have just been the ugly duckling in the batch but mine sucks and one hole is almost sealed. When I asked them if they could do anything they took forever and made jump through hoops to get an answer.

Yeah that's exactly what I don't want to happen.. I guess where ever I get one from I'm just going to tell them to inspect it for me so I know it's not a defective one. Just didn't know where I should actually order from, not knowing if it's like phunnels where you have knock offs and such.

If you are unemployed and broke, a Vortex is your best buy. If they have them on Hookah-life.com , that would probably be cheapest. If not, then HookahCompany or texashookah.

EDIT: Saw that HH is still running their shipping deal, therefore HH or Saharasmoke is probably cheapest.

Does anyone know what grommet I would need to fit it? I don't think my grommet I have now would fit it, the bottom of the bowl looks pretty big.

depending on what hookah you have you may or may not need a mod grommet. on my km it fits with just a regular grommet but if i use it on my bambino i have to put the mod grommet. Check out your trade post maylene posted a link that is definitely worth getting.

As of right now I would be using it on my HoboNargile, but I don't know if the grommet is big enough.

Yah if your not sure about then I would get the mod grommet then. It would fit on any hookah and definitely make the bowl fit.

Are you sure? I had a Havana Phunnel and the bottom opening was too big for the grommet that came with the Hobo.
