buy the phunnel on hookahstore, im from canada too and got that one, works great. just get something else with the phunnel because the shipping will screw up the price if you buy just the phunnel + shipping..

i bought some shisha+the phunnel

Vortex is amazing. But like everyone else has mentioned, it's not really worth your while unless you have juicy shisha. Keep pricing them, and consider how juicy your typical tobacco is.

I personally would be wary of anything from eBay, but that's just me.

Buy it from this site, they are legit tangiers phunnels.http://www.hookahcompany.com/tangier..._1676_prd1.htm Just so you know they sell medium, large and small tangiers but they also sell chinese phunnels. Make sure you are buying the tangiers one.

I would disagree with this, both vortex and phunnel work very well (even with the dryest of nakhla), lately I've been using vortex for everything (besides the more traditional stuff, like khan el khallili which I still smoke out of the egyptian) and the sessions have not only been longer, but the dense packing is easier, resulting in better taste and bigger clouds.

If you want to know if a store is selling authentic Tangiers phunnels, check if they are also selling Tangiers tobacco. If they don't sell Tangiers shisha, it means that their bowls are Chinese imitations.

As other people have said, man, save yourself a crapload of trouble and go with a vortex. Best bowl ever. It's cheaper than the phunnel and it works just as good, if not better. The only reason anyone should ever need a phunnel bowl would be for smoking Tangiers Noir tobacco.

Stay away from the chinese phunnel and go for a vortex. Much better bowl and you will be happy with the purchase of a vortex instead of frustrated with a phunnel.

Personally I am a big fan of the Tangiers small funnel but the Chinese versions have a lot of mixed reviews (not that the tangiers original does not) and a vortex will most likely treat you better. Be aware that the draw on a vortex is going to be nowhere as open at that of a funnel. Pay attention to the holes on the spire. They can easily get gunked up and are somewhat hard to clean. You are also going to need a fairly thick grommet. It's a great bowl but it has it's problems.

you see one of main reasons why i considered a funnel was that i felt with a vortex the flow was restricted a bit. and since i just got a km i wanted to see its full potential of how eassy it is to pull. atm wiht my old vortex seemed pretty much the same as my havana hookah with razan hose.

A funnel will have a more open draw so long as the foil does not get pulled down over the spire. This should not be a problem so long as the foil is tight and it is lessened further if using heavy duty foil.

The draw is easier through a funnel. A vortex has 4 small holes on the spire while a funnel has one large hole that is similar to the inner diameter of some stems. The most important factors for clouds are the tobacco and the heat management so that's a maybe. A wider draw over all will allow for more smoke to be pulled through the hookah more rapidly.
