Default Bowls

Again I thank hookah-shisha.com

I just tried a large Funnel bowl: Where to start... it is nice, but it was very large. I like the concept more than i do the product. It was just to large it really took awhile to heat the shisha. I think if you're going to use a funnel bowl, get the one with the mod, that is much better. Or even a smaller funnel bowl.

Egyptian bowls, i like the traditional egyptian bowls, for personal use. if the bowl is flat i have a stainless steel spacer (or a coupling as they call it at the hardware store)that i place on the edge of the bowl to raise it above the tin foil so it really helps with heat management, and doesn't burn the shisha

However I just got a smaller vortex bowl, and I LOVE it! the vortex bowl draws the smoke from the side, it really heats the shisha evenly, and NO you will not draw any shisha through the holes.

This is probably my favorite bowl ever, i would highly recommend this, it keeps the shisha moist much much longer, heats evenly, so you never get a harsh taste during your session.

cheers,

They are similar, how ever the funnel bowl draws air from the top, and the vortex draws air from the side. they both have the same idea of storing the shisha in it's juice to last longer

so you would choose the vortex over the phunnel? i guess also where you put the holes in the foil would make a difference

Yes personally i love the vortex, because it draw air from the middle of the shisha i think you get more smoke, and more flavor that way

I love my standard egyptian style bowls. The funnel I have I was quite disappointed with. I'm looking forward to giving a vortex a try when the summer contest reaches it conclusion. Smoke happy.

i think if you get a phunnel going properly it can out perform the vortex.
i have 3 phunnels. A mini, a small, and a medium. The large is useless as it lasts 8 hours or more.
my medium lasts 4 hours
small lasts 2
mini lasts 1, but since its shallow i can easily underpack it and get it to go just 30 minutes

yeah i'd have to agree with ari the phunnel bowl definitely out smokes a vortex, i own 3 vortex's, a tangiers small phunnel, and 2 crownhookah mini phunnels. i find myself using the phunnels more often than the vortex. a large phunnel is pretty much has no place unless your smoking a multi hose with like 4 people, there's really no need to pack over 100g's of shisha in one bowl in my oppinion.

I have a medium phunnel, a vortex, egyptian, and a mod. I use the vortex 90% of the time. totally idiot proof. The phunnels good but just so huge. I might find a mod for it or pick up a mini. i think then it might be in the same league if not superior to the vortex. The phunnel keeps a tonnn of flavor, just uses so muhc coals/shisha. I personally love the vortex because of the airflow from the side. it creates an awesome "bake" of the shisha, where you can legit pull it out after a session and its reminiscent of a donut.

I have tried both a vortex and many phunnel types and the vortex beats them all hands down

I've used Egyptian, mod and vortex bowls, and every time i find myself falling back to the vortex. Easy to use, big clouds and long smoke time. It's a winner in my book

Vortex. not only does it draw smoke from the sida, you have 4 holes instead of one. not to mention, the whole vortex idea forces smoke to pass the shisha and juices, as where the funnel skims the top. The mod for the funnel basically makes it a vortex except the smoke goes to the outside edges, away from the center of the shisha. Vortex is the perfect bowl.
