I agee with you there there. It does a perfect job of keeping your hookah clean, but my prefence is the phunnel- but less forgiving as the vortex. If you can, I'd say get 1 of each. Use the vortex for shorter sessions, and the phunnel for longer. If not choose one now, get the other later.

I'm biased and one of the few that don't say either. I only use my EGYPTIAN, why mess with perfection? I can load anything into my egyptian and get it to smoke right every single time.

You aren't messing with perfection cause you don't have a Vortex... I can load anything into my vortex and get it to smoke right every single time.

And I can do the same with my phunnels. And, unlike the Vortex, my bowls don't come from China.

Vortex!!!! All the way baby!!! Only bowl I use, unless I'm blending flavours and I want to try it before I pack up a full vortex.

I actually have a vortex, funnel, mod, glass mod, and custom bowls that I personally made by hand, and I will gladly use my egyptian any day of the week. If the design didn't work like it was supposed to, they wouldn't still be using it world wide. If I need a special bowl to smoke a certain tobacco it's not worth it to me.

I'd agree, I like to push the egyptian bowl simply because no one else really does.

It's all a matter of opinion and everyone is entitled to their own. Nothing against anyone that enjoys the vortex or funnel, I'd just perfer the egyptian

Funnel is the best bowl on the market right now, but if you're not experienced with hookah, or just want simplicity, get vortex, it smokes nicely too... Other thing what I noticed is if you don't use more than 1 coal, but small Egyptian, I think nothing can beat it with low heat!

It seems that there is a battle between the phunnel and the vortex.
Do you guys thing it depends on the type of tobacco is in either bowl?
I'm trying to decide on one of those for my next purchase as well.
