i would use a vortex since they are basicaly the same as a phunnel. I have both the vortex and medium phunnel and unless you are planning on smoking for three or more hours i would just stick with a vortex.

I would use the vortex personally, that way you can get it nicely packed and still have good flow. I know dee made that tutorial so you might want to at least give it a try, but since you have the vortex i say use the vortex.

I would also use the vortex. I own phunnel bowls and a vortex and they both work just as well as the other for tangiers.

^^This.
The only reasons I did the egyptian bowl thing were:

1) To show you can indeed smoke Tangiers in such a bowl and..
2) As a way to conserve tobacco.

It was mainly done as an experiment. I now use a Crown Classic for Tangiers. I like it because it conserves tobacco as well as coals and provides the benefits of a phunnel or vortex. (Holding in the juice.)

ok, so basically pack it like Dee's video. lightly press down on the shisha to pack it in a lil and just make sure the holes are clear on the vortex? right now i dont plan on smoking for 3 hrs at a time, unless i had a group session which doesnt happen all to often.

the glass crown hookah bowl seems like it would be good, you can pack the tangiers nicely in the middle and not worry about making sure the holes are clear for airflow since there around the rim.

I'm sure this doesn't need to be said but this is how i took it when i read it. You don't want to pack tangiers in the middle of a phunnel or crown bowl, the tobacco is packed around the hole in the center. I'm sure you knew this but i said it because that is how it read to me.

drewzi I think you read it wrong. The Crown bowl doesnt have a hole in the middle, the holes are on the outer edge.
