Question point of the scali mod?

I was just wondering what the point of a scali mod is? I just got a alien mini phunnel and was wondering if it would be worth my while to make one for it?

Scalli mods redirect the smoke so instead of skimming over the top of the tobacco it goes into it, thus in theory enhancing the flavor of the smoke. Most phunnels don't really need them but it isn't hard to make one from foil to at least try it. Let me see if I can pull up that link I found awhile back

There are many threads on how to make them, but IIRC that one website sold glass ones which I heard worked pretty well.

Problem with that flippy is the size of the bowl in question. I have a glass scalli mod that can't even fit a large phunnel bowl! One for a bowl that size would just make it impossible to smoke

I found the link so if you are interested enough in trying it out shishasteve here you go. This would be one of the only real ways to do it for now anyways...

Another advantage of Scali mods is that they decrease the amount of tobacco needed to pack the bowl. The difference is most noticeable in larger phunnels but you might also benefit from what Raid3n said. They also keep the airway opened so that the foil doesn't get pulled down over the spire.

All that, and it prevents the foil from sucking down onto the hole of the phunnel bowl. Along with drawing air through the shisha rather than over it. Makes a big difference.
