Default Phunnel

On my first post I asked a few questions and got great answers, although I was left confused about one part. The phunnel, what "mod" is this you are talking about...? I am interested in ordering up a bunch of stuff today and just didn't want to get the bowl and not be able to use it out of the box.

It goes over the middle of the phunnel. It lessens the amount of total tobacco you use.

I see, It's kinda like a cup that fits over the center, to prevent any tobacco from falling in but with the notches in the bottom sides it allows the smoke to go through. Although I think I'll pass on getting one for now. Thanks a ton!

Exactly! Ohh and it keeps the foil from closing over the center hole too. Since you don't over-pack any tobacco in a Phunnel other than Tangiers, you will need to smoke anything but Tangiers.

Most that have used the phunell with out the mod say it's the same smoke, however the mod will save shisha.

I will be smoking Laylina with the phunnel so I won't be packing it to the top like you do with Tangiers. I will be able to craft something up in place of the mod if needed.

I don't own a phunnel, but they look super cool and I kinda want one. They are a little pricey though, I'd be afraid of breaking it! If they do what everyone says they do it seems like a nice investment. I would use it on all of my tobacco, not just my tangiers though

The price isn't too bad for some of them. I found this to be the cheapest so far but they are out of stock, I wonder why?!?

I really do just want to find a small phunnel tho, no use for a med or large, although the small and medium didn't look to be too much of a difference.

The phunel itself is a must have option, it can work on large and small hookahs. I wish I could get my hands on a mod just to see if it makes any difference or is necessary. I have been using mine for 2 months withou a mod and I love it. As a matter of fact, I think I'll just pocket another on of the shelf!

the mod is supposed to save shisha as well as direct the smoke under the shisha to get more flavor apparently. I just use it to save shisha. The small phunnel I just got uses like 30g lol

i just received my phunnel yesterday and smoked it last night. definitely gave a LOT more flavor from my shisha and it lasted a lot longer. although, i found that i was using more coals to keep thick smoke (3 or 4 instead of 1 or 2 at a time). i was bored at work today and made my own mod out of the bottom of a soda can. i'll be trying it out soon (most likely tonight), so i'll let you know how it works out.

Very cool, I hope that works out. Try to post some pics of it if it does, so others can get an idea of what you did to save the $6+s/h from the glass mod. Thanks again for the input and help everyone.

That would be aluminum, I believe...remember that it is a can and not bottle.

I would also like to know how it worked out.

Ohh sorry, u are right In that case it might works

My idea was, that there is a glazzier near to me and i would made a Phunnel with them. What do u think? I think its cheaper than a normal phunnel + shipping. But if u think its not a stupid idea, than i will ask them about the price

i dont have a ruler...but eyeing it, it looks like the phunnel diameter on top is same as a stick of blistex lipbalm. the hole in the middle is as wide as the blistex lipbalm is if you stand it up straight over the middle

my homemade mod worked great. it was the bottom of an aluminum can. i just cut it off with a knife (very dangerous and many sharp edges) and bent it into a dome shape with a pair of pliers. more smoke / flavor with less heat (and of course saving shisha).

i noticed someone used a 3/4 inch copper pipe stop to make a mod and people said it was a bad idea because of the heating of the copper. today, i found a 3/4 inch brass end cap for $1.50 so I figured to give that a shot too. will update after i try.

btw, sorry for no picks, i don't own a digi cam. i'm lame...

The Phunnel keeps the Juices of the tobacco in the bowl, instead of draining down your stem. The more heat is applied, the more viscous the liquid (whatever it may be) becomes. The tobacco, inside the phunnel, is saturated in it's own juices, which are being heated, therefore releasing much more flavorwhich is not being lost. This leads to bigger clouds (more glycerine stays in place), more flavor (glycerine is always there until it's sizzled away), longer sessions (you have flavor for longer.

glycerin is only the smoke component. the flavorings are added but not really part of the glycerin.
