Default Tried Giant Party shisha bowl ?

My favourite hookah bowl to use is for lazy B's like me. Unfortunately, its not well know that such a large shisha bowl is available. The bowl is exactly thesame as the regular standard ceramic tobacco bowl, only larger. I don't like to pack too tight, so I put in from 35-55 grams. If you tamp down on the non-funnel bowls, the shisha will probably overheat in the bowl. If I'm working online, the giant bowl keeps me smoking for a very long session. at worst, if I don't finish it all, its easily relightable.
I'll try to add links to the bowl, and a photo. Here, this is the company which makes and sells them photo here too.

Enjoy.

I don't know I think that the heat management is difficult for that thing but if you can handle that, good for you! honestly I'm stick to the old fashion bowl.

Yeah I like the old fashion bowl and the phunnel is way better since it makes the tobacco more flavorful and last longer.

I personally don't like big bowls like that because that's too much of a waste of shisha in one sitting. Not only that...Your more likely to get headaches because of all that nicotine in all that shisha.

I know someone that got this giant huge party bowl from one of these major online vendors (I forget). He hardly even uses it because he said the it always gives him a huge ass headache every time he smokes from it.

But hey! If it works for you and you love da bowl...It shouldn't matter what I think lol

Big bowl, I guess it could be good for large parties so you don't have to refill as much.

That bowl is ridiculous. It might be handy for a 4 hose hookah serving 8 people or something but not practical for 90% of the smoking that is done. 50 G of shisha tobacco per session? No way.

I use a large Egyptian bowl which is quite a bit of tobacco for one person, and even to me this just seems beyond unnecessary.

I used the Mya "Jumbo" it's about the same, we smoked it for over 4 hours. Just gotta stagger the coals. start with 3 then when yoiu replace them 2 then 1 then 3 again.

Actually, all the comments here are true for those who wrote them. I've been smoking more than 7 years, smoke lots and smoke on the job (my p.c. at home).
This bowl of course has a very long stem. Its easier for me to smoke one bowl for a few hours than keep adding normal sized.
Also, I don't have to worry about adding 17 grams to a 15 gram bowl making sure I don't pack it too tight, or have the shisha burn on the foil.
I just sprinkle in below the top and finito! Contantly through the years I've gone back and forth to the regular bowl, and just prefer a loooong smoke. No headache (no head).
I live in Israel, never saw a phunnel bowl but will try it one of these years.I've only heard good things about it.

p.s. forgot to mention about the fact that cars, personal computers,electronics and everything else but shisha cost at least twice what you pay in America. Some countries pay a lot for shisha but they don't pay twice what you do on a car. (Which I don't have and just stay here smoking my hookah.) We get mainly Jordanian brands and Egyptian Nakhla cheap.

I don't see with people need big bowls when there are phunnels.
phunnels give off more flavor, and probably will last longer with less tobacco.

I've been smoking for 8 years and used this giant bowl, as well as the regular size ceramic back and forth comparing. After reading all the replies here I got to thinking that most of the people's remarks that it is a waste of shisha are correct. I got the giant bowl a few years back and it needs two or 2 1/2 coals to smoke, always with a small waste of shisha.The regular bowls are great. Phunnel bowl I've yet to use since it's not sold here so I should get offa my A and maybe order one to try. I stand humbly corrected and happy for the input.Thanks.
