And I would be using it with a scalli mod anyways.

Thanks for all the feedback guys, it's nice to know any question can be answered by someone with experience here.
dont be so quick to assume that putty is safe when heated, unless the msds says it is you should assume it is bad. many chemicals will off gas at low teps and can really hurt you. also i doubt the putty would hold well very long unless you give the glass a tooth

I may be completely wrong but with a glass screen with only one hole in the center and the coals place around it wouldn't that ruin your drag because you would be pulling in fresh air directly through the center only and not from the sides?

in theory yes but i have seen vids and all of it working perfectly fine, no idea how, i guess part of it is that there is probably not a solid seal around the edge so some air comes from there too but also some of it is probably the Venturi effect

Venturi effect, thats familiar... what does it mean? I am interested in this idea of glass for a screen and could see how it would conduct heat. But I wonder how it would work with traditional moassels...

If you were to use a MNH style glass screen then I would assume you are probably not getting the optimal benefit if you are using a Phunnel, Vortex, or Crown Jewel since you are pulling most of your air down the center and not over/through the baking shisha. I don't know how much difference it would make but I believe it would be a "Non-Zero" percentage.

However if you are using an Egyptian, mod bowl, Phunnel with Scalli, or Crown Classic then the screen shouldn't effect you at all since you are still drawing the air over/through the shisha.

Oh... and for more info on the Venturi Effect: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venturi_effect

to simplify venturi effect its how some paint guns work where the air blows over a nozzle and pulls paint out (iirc)

spanner i agree that on paper it shouldnt work but i have seen vids of them being used with great success, the phunnel bowl as a whole seems like it shouldnt work as well as it does though in my mind (and i am a pretty physical/logical minded person and can see how stuff works easily)

on the headaches topic, also make sure (if you're smoking indoors) that you have decent ventilation. several times my girlfriend has gotten headaches almost to the point of nausea if the room gets way too hazy

After thinking about you must be right matt. I didn't take into consideration that a glass screen wouldn't make a perfect seal so it would have the same effect as holes in the foil.

Well I'm aware of the effect of having a big hole over the spire in the middle of a funnel, however, I ordered a scalli with it, to be used almost religiously. However, now noting that i FINALLY got a mail back from MNH but I basically told him to shove it and keep it. As soon as the payment is cancelled with my CC, i'm gonna grab a vortex from **********, and possibly a brand spankin new hookah!

Funnel bowls usually demand a lot more heat and tobacco, unless you can get your hands on an alien phunnel, or small tangiers phunnel.. But those are expensive.. I'd recommend a vortex bowl, reasonable requirement of heat, windcover helps. And your good to go. And doesn't need much shisha.

o if i didnt mention it yet here once you find what ever bowl you like, especially if it is the vortex, but another one or 2. the vortexes seem to be kinda weaker to me just because they are a thinner material due to the design, i broke 2 vortexes since august both times when i was drying them... granted having concrete floors doesnt help my situation either lol

Yeah i just picked up two vortexes from hookah-shisha.com, and im with you matt. I always buy at least two because nothing is worse than breaking your one and only bowl.

Tarik from MNH e-mailed me back and said he was gonna ship stuff out today, i basically told him to shove it.
I got myself a full refund, and I am online right now, with a vortex in my cart.
