Vortex, nothing beats a vortex.

Default Re: vortex, phunnel or standard

I won't say vortex or phunnel for champ, or even standard.

It depends on what you smoke.

Dry shisha I prefer an egyptian.

Wet shisha I prefer a vortex

liquid shisha I prefer a phunnel


A vortex and a funnel are functionally identical, but both have their fanboys.

I do NOT like the height of phunnels, however.

It depends on the tobacco, my alien phunnel will burn certain tobaccos but will save a lot of tobacco for Social Smoke. Egyptians are good for Nakhla but it depends on how I'm feeling because I may use my vortex

I use my phunnel more than my vortex because i feel like my vortex is more restrictive. But My egyptian bowl is used for short sessions with dry shisha.

This is your best answer right here.

Very smart answer... This explains it all, a lot of people would battle over which one is better, but they all serve their purposes. i own all three and i do use them all depending what kind of shisha i'm in the mood to smoke. i mean it's all about experimenting... once you learn the function of all bowls, you wouldn't classify them as the same kind of bowl and you wouldnt say one is better than the other.. they all are in their own class in functionality and they are all very good bowls on how you use it..

I agree with the egyptian for dryer moassel but often times I will throw any and everything in my vortex and get it to smoke great. I like to try and keep things traditional ...but sometimes ingenuity and progression are laws to live by. This is one of those times. =)

Id say vortex, it has a bigger bowl in general i think for a little more shisha, and it seems to smoke better.

Vortex, easy to pack and smokes a long time without using as much as a phunnel. Its the only bowl I use unless I want a very short session.

Slasher my friend...you are missing out on a whoooooole lot. haha a vortex bowl is ultimately the best bowl to smoke out of. People may say this or that about how it matters on the situation, but you honestly won't go wrong with throwin a vortex bowl at the top of your baby and smoking it up. My friend swears by his vortex, and i'm right there behind him.

this thread is just one of many to show everyone how much taste varies. Personally I agree with EvanW. Although I do not have a vortex..

My egyptian and phunnel are both working great.. And alot is also about how you pack it..

I seem to come across more stories about Vortex bowls breaking than phunnels. The only punishment my phunnels haven't been able to take was FedEx.
And I smoke everything out of mine. Any more, I keep my standard egyptians around just for a change of pace.
