I never really pack any bowls with any weight in mind, it's all about volume and whether the air can flow through it (with normal egyptian/modern bowls). My best advice would be to play with it, find where you like it.

I use about 5-10 grams in each bowl.. I usually only use 1, 3 kings coal which lasts about 40 mins.. this is a perfect session for me, and my shisha lasts long.

i have a mini phunnel that i can put 10 grams in...thats lasts about an hour
a small phunnel that can hold up to 30 grams if i really jam it in but i probably put 20 grams in...that gets me about 2 hours
a medium phunnel that hold 50-75 grams...this is for a large group and it will go for 4-6 hours

I also have a small MYA it holds about 20 grams and can go about 2 hours
a small egyptian holds about 20 grams and goes about an hour and a half, unless i over pack it, then it goes longer
a mod bowl...holds 40 grams i think(not sure)...it lasts like 2-3 hours depending

all of these numbers change based on the type of tobacco...certain tobaccos burn faster than others

In my small Mya bowl I generally pack about 15-25g. In the larger egyptian style bowl I pack 30ish grams. I don't weigh it out, though. It's an eyeball measurement. Hope this is helpful to you. Smoke happy.

People, he is asking what he can expect from using his Vortex bowl. Telling him about your various other bowls doesn't help him. ttdr, it is also going to depend on what tobacco your using. Not every one packs the same either. I use as little as 15 and as much as 30 or so in my Vortex.

I take a puff less than once a minute so the tobacco gets hit with less air and therefore less heat.

I'd say 20 grams is what you can expect for a Vortex.

For me it depends on the bowl. A lot of vendors tell you how much tobacco their bowls hold, so I fill it up which ends up being pretty close to that number. I usually smoke with friends so we take a hit about every few seconds. If the tobacco is of good quality we can go through 4-6 coals (using 2-3 at a time, depending on how much heat they put out).

i use a vortex and 25 - 30g per bowl i smoke at least a minimum of 3 bowls a day, usualy 2 sets of 2 coals or sometimes 3 coals. i smoke over a kilo a month, dont worry about a box and a half
