Default Size comparison: Standard Egyptian vs Med. Tangiers Phunnel

This is for people looking into getting a tangiers phunnel. Hopefully this helps when deciding on a size. I have pictured here my standard egyptian which came with my hookah and my new medium sized tangiers phunnel from MNH.

egyptian:
height: 3.125"
diameter of bowl: 2.875"
depth of bowl: 0.5"

medium tangiers phunnel:
height: 4.875"
diameter of bowl: 3.437"
depth of bowl: 1"

Phunnel bowls def hold ALOT more shisha than your normal egyption head.

If you really want a Phunnel and only smoke alone, I might suggest buying the Scalli mod.. MNH for sure sells em.

Heh!! Look at that difference. Those phunnel bowls look really sweet. Since you already got the scali mod you are set now. Personally, I would've snagged a small. but those are a litttle harder to find than the mediums.

I've got a small phunnel, and I feel like I am wasting a lot of tobacco in it! It seems to me that the phunnels are designed to hold more tobacco then neccesary ... most times I just use my Saudi Arabian Bowl from Hookah Company. It holds a good amount but not so much that you are breaking the shisha bank! If I do use my small phunnel I try to use the mod with it so I can cut back on how much shisha I am wasting ... in my experience the top burns up and the bottom is juicy still ... it is wasteful

Hmm, Have you thought about taking the burnt parts out and throwing the juicy stuff back in the tub? I dunno if it would effect it any, but it seems like a pretty decent concept. I dunno if I could throw already smoked shish back into the tub, it just wouldn't feel right.

nah, that is just gross ... I wouldn't want to throw the unused back in the tub. I guess that is my problem, I don't like to waste more shisha then I have to? My Saudi Bowl always works perfectly for me Holds the right amount and can leave a good cushion of air between foil and top of tobacco .. nice even burn.

That is what we are all here for ask for advice ... a lot of us will give it to you straight. Personally I think the small is as large of a bowl as I would want to use. But you will be fine with the medium, will just cost more to fill it .. fluff the hell out of the tobacco!

Cheers!

I have the medium tangiers phunnel and a medium havanna phunnel...These bowls are beasts!!! I use about 50grams of shisha in each session, but it smokes forever...Me and 2 of my friends smoked a bowl of AF Watermelon, we used 9 quick light coles and we smoked for 3 hours...I love the Phunnel bowl, definitely worth it if your looking for longer smoking sessions...

my friends and i are now, with a small funnel, ch quick lights, and AF2; able to get around 3-3.5 hours off a bowl with good heat management. this does, however, cause my maya qt to get hot all the way down the stem, regardless of how cold the water is

Only Have Egyptian Bowls here a small a medium and a large. The large I got with the Hookah takes more than 50 Gram's of tobacco I had to go bowl hunting for the other two. I love the small gives about 30-45 minutes of smoking depending on how you packed it and with what Tobacco which is fine for me.

I didn't realize Sambooka or anyone else had one of these Saudi bowls. It's my favorite as well.

For my Tangiers Noir however, since you pack it tightly, I much prefer my tiniest Egyptian-style bowl.

Totally agree with Sambooka,

I got my Saudi bowl two weeks ago and I LOVE it. With the phunnel, there is a great waste of tobacco since I don't smoke for more than an hour per session.
