Vortex all the way, easy to heat manage and good for all different kinds of tobacco.

I suggest a phunnel bowl since everyone else so far has said Vortex. It's my preferance because it seems to help extend the length and quality of my sessions, While helping keep my hookahset cleaner.

Opinions i think will be 50% phunnel, and 50% Vortex...so as a new smoker id say Vortex. and later get a phunell as well.

Vortex:

Phunnel:

Totally different bowls. Phunnel apparently has better flow. I dont really know about "expensive" smokers lol but I think you should go with a vortex.

I'm awaiting my first Vortex bowl which I ordered on Monday. I've got 2 egyptian bowls that came with my hookahs but I hear the Vortex makes sessions tastier, and longer

Vortex/Phunnel are the best bowls, but for shorter sessions, I should get an egyptian too. Vortex/Phunnel need a lot of shisha.

How do you mean with 'good for airflow'? You mean because the holes are not on the bottom of the bowl, but somewhere else? (see pics above).
It won't effect the airflow. The tobacco juice just won't fall down the stem into the water, which means you'll have more juice, which means more taste and longer sessions.

http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...vortex+phunnel Check out that thread man, everything has pretty much been said on that one. It really comes down to what you want to use because there are diehard vortex and tangiers phunnel bowls fans here and there is no right answer to that question.

It depends on what you smoke and how many people smoke with you. I personally don't a multi-hose rig so I don't have any use for a party style bowl. If you smoke lots of wet, syrupy type products then i'd say go with a funnel, super chief or vortex. If you like the drier style products then i'd suggest you use a generic Egptian bowl although personally I prefer the unglazed Saudi type bowl.

As for me, well 8 times out of ten I use a super chief or a vortex for everything but tombac which I have special bowl for. Sometimes I smoke drier moassels and enjoy them with a Saudi unglazed. Hope this helps.

I'm going to be the lone wolf and say egyptian, which is most likely what will be coming with your new rig. I have mod bowls, vortex, and funnels, and the most used bowl for my sessions is the egyptian.

Totally. I use an Egyptian for everything. Haven't been impressed with my phunnel at all.
