Default Funnel Bowl Help

Hey when I set up my funnel bowl, It's very hard to draw on, I don't think I'm quite setting it up right. Can anyone direct to a thread here or a video or just explain exactly what might cause this? I've heard of using a metal clip from a plastic paper clamp or something. Thanks for the help in advance!

Double up the foil. Make sure its on really tight. Then with the hole pattern use a toothpick and make 3 circles. One on the outer ring then inside of that and then inside of that, then one or two holes in the center of the spire. . Make sure the push the toothpick all the way thorough into the tobacco. By having the foil tight on the bowl, it should keep the foil out of the spire.

It sounds like you don't have enough holes or that your foil isn't tight enough and when your taking a draw the foil is clogging the center hole. Make you you punch a hole in the very center so you avoid this when taking a drag.

Tight foil, and maybe add some tape to make sure it stays tight.

Other option, which is a bit more complicated, would be the tealight scalli mod. I think there are a few youtube videos out on it.

Is it a tangiers phunnel, a Chinese, or a havanna?
If it's not a tangiers chances are the center hole is too high.
This means the foil needs to be extremely tight. If that still doesn't work poke a couple holes in middle instead of just the normal three ring hole pattern.

My foil technique for getting the foil tight is too lay the foil on top, and then using both hands pull down equally around it all at once, equal preassure for maximum tightness. Then a twist of the foil clockwise around the bowls stem. Might sound like "duh" but it takes a little practice to get good with the foil.

If you think the foil might be getting sucked down you can either poke holes in the middle or do the paperclip mod.
Also, the tighter the foil thr better

Usually when the foil gets sucked down over the center hole it's because either the foil isn't tight enough or you are not getting enough airflow. Make sure the foil is gutenteit and add more/bigger holes.
