I use both, depending on what's available. The screens usually last me about 20 sessions, then charring on the underside from the baccy starts to form.

personally i dont like to use a screen cause too much ash can fall through the holes and get prety disusting...and foil isnt even that expensive...just roll down to the local dollar tree store and get like 200 square feet for a dollar

Foil, because I like poking little pictures into it. Way more fun than screens. Not to mention what everyone else is pretty much saying . . . Airflow . . . ash . . .

I used to do that until my girlfriend made me stop and just do circles, i was drawing obscene things into the foil. But definitely foil all the way; much better airflow, less chance of ash in the shisha, and a good seal every time; not to mention foil is really cheap considering how many hookah bowls a roll lasts.

Foil is used by the more avid smokers, the screen has large holes, that are a bit much, foil is worth the effort and provides a more efficient smoke and flavor, I recommend the Reynolds Heavy Duty.

The cheapo screens are actually screens that are made for bathtubs so hair doesn't get in the drain, I figured that out when I moved into my UNI and looked down and saw what I thought to be a hookah screen. Don't use them anymore.

Foil is easy and cheap. Plus you don't have to tack the caked on Sheesh in the middle of your smoking session. And they chip your bowl if your not careful... which Im not.

Foil is the best because you could really control the heat management with any type of shisha and any type of coal. . . with a screen you always have the same amount of holes and the same size holes so you cant variate

i prefer to use foil when im smoking outta my hookah
the screens tend to let too much air in
and the holes are usually too big on the screen so the ash from the smoke tends to fall through and can mess with the taste of ur shisha.....thats no good!

I tried some metal screens because I thought they'd be quicker/easier but I just didn't like them. Ash falls through and it seemed like the shisha always got burnt when I used them.

Plus if you use foil, you can dump the spent shisha into it after you're done smoking and throw it into a trashcan that way. Way less messy and doesn't make the trash smell like old shisha.
