They suck. Holes are too big. Ash gets through very easily. It also doesn't create a good seal on the bowl, allowing air to pass. I'd stick with foil.

plus think about this

the screen is thicker than the foil, so it will take longer to heat up, but when it IS heated, and you get it too hot, it will take longer to cool down....foil is just so much easier IMO and make managing heat a lot easier too

Eh I have one that came with my hookah. I never use it...The holes are way too big and that the shisha can get burnt easily.

I haven't thrown them away because of the fact that I know I may run out of foil and I'll be in desperate need lol

There are some screens that you can use effectively. One method I have seen is that people will use a screen and foil at the same time. I have never personally done this.

I use combo bowls and my new funnel so I effectively use both at different times. My vote would still be to foil, unless you have friends like mine that bitch about using it to smoke...

I can see that, serving as support for the foil.

I bend the tabs down to make a little table and put it on the ground put coals on it and take my torch to it when I'm smoking outside!

I haven't try them but I think they can't seal the bowl properly so maybe Al Gore will kill me after this but I prefer using tons of foil and throw them after every use than mess my session with a coal screen.

they suck!
you wont get a good seal, air will come in from everywhere.
They collect heat from the coaland will burn the tobacco.
And - they suck

use foil.
