VORTEX ALL DAY LONG.

Phunnels are made to funnel the money out of your pocket and funnel the 'you got ripped the fuck off' right into your mouth.

My phunnels work so damn good that I have no desire to buy a vortex.

Phunnel.
small funnel if you enjoy long sessions that still uses tobacco to the fullest.
I don't like how inconsistent vortexes are, the middle spire has holes where ever it wants, which is not good. It is just an easy mode phunnel. Also it's a bit deep for me.
All my opinion and preferences obviously
Also take a peek at crown bowls if you can dig the cost.

Either one, there's virtually no difference, other than you'll use slightly more tobacco with a small funnel, and I know people will start bitching about vortex's draw being too restrictive, it's barely noticeable, if at all when smoking out of a wide gauge pipe.

I love my vortex and always get it to smoke well. I have yet to try the Phunnel, I should throw on in on my next order.

You're gonna different responses from everybody. I have both and like them both, but i use the vortex more often because it uses less tobacco.

I think vortex's are easier to pack. But if you know how to correctly pack and heat manage a funnel, then you can't go wrong with either one.

My favorite bowl is from crownhookahs! it's perfect for a good session by myself... i dont really like phunnels...if i am not using my crown bowl i'm using my vortex...and it handles multiple smokers well...but since i dont like sharing because my mommy never taught me to share i usually stay with the crownhookah bowl

I suggest all of them for different things.

The Tangiers funnel will hold more tobacco and you should never buy anything larger than a small. The Tangiers funnel heats up fairly quickly and has great heat properties. They are built for longer smoking sessions.

The vortex is more restrictive on the draw. It's a considerable amount but it's nothing to ruin a session. The vortex is deeper and takes much longer to heat up to full smoking potential. It will use less tobacco than the small funnel but not by a massive amount. They both use more tobacco than the average bowl.

The crown hookah glass mini funnel is my current favorite bowl. It uses a tiny amount of tobacco and a minuscule amount of coal. It's the only true mini on the market that will save both coals and tobacco. It's more expensive than the other two but it's a great investment, will be paid off in savings and is discounted by our forum code.

I like my vortex but I have never used a phunnel before. The thing I've noticed on my vortex is that the spire in the middle is getting some buildup on it (and I've tried to get it off) and its starting to form in the holes in the spire. I just hope it doesn't clog them all the way. I just bought a Tangiers phunnel bowl so I should have a better opinion next week. lol

Boil it to get it clean, that's what I do.
