Default Issues with the Medium Phunnel Bowl...

So my friend somewhat knocked over my hookah and my lovely plain old egyptian bowl shattered, and that was my go to bowl for smoking every day.

I had it pretty much down, and only had to use half a stick of exotica's.

However, now that im stuck with the phunnel bowl, not only does it seem like im wasting so much shisha, i'm also having to use close to an entire stick of exotica's just to produce medium smoke, it kind of sucks.

Any idea's? I usually do the same hole pattern with one bigger hole in the middle, and i pack it just below the foil.

I'm frustrated at as hell as the local shops around me only carry shitty mya bowls that dont fit my hookah :[

make you own bowl then take card board and tape it up to a bowl shape.. then wrap it up in foil so it doesnt burn nd then use foil as needed to make a normal bowl i had to do it once when i broke my bowl if you do it properly it works fine..

Try adding a windcover on to start. and maybe make the middle hole smaller. Also, what kind of tobacco are you using?

The phunnel bowls are just to big! They waste a ton of tobacco ...

Just pack half a bowl, and use coals on that side.

Arrgg these bowls are getting to be frustrating, that is why I always say, "Just get a small phunnel" if you are going to get one ..

I have been using this one, design goes back a LONNNGGG TIME! I use this bowl 80% of the time.

Samb, what's the depth and width on that one? HC gives no measures.

This is from the Hookah-Shisha web site ..

Small - The Small Phunnel Bowl is 4 5/8" tall and 2 5/8" in diameter at the top. It can hold between 20-25g of tobacco.

Medium - The Medium Phunnel Bowl is 4 3/4" tall and 3 1/8" in diameter at the top. It can hold between 30-35g of tobacco.

Large - The Large Phunnel Bowl is 4 3/4" tall and 3 3/8" in diameter at the top. It can hold between 40-45g of tobacco.

i don't understand here, i use a med/large phunel about half of the time. i only fill my shisha loosely up to the line of the phunel, meaning the inneredge, not the outer edge. I use about 25g, that's not alot. you don't have to pack it tangiers style if your not using tangiers. although i'm not a angiers expert i think the right way to pack that is to over pack it. that's just not necessary with other shisha.

I agree w/ you sambooka. i pack 1/2 a bowl and use coals on the side where its packed. ive never loaded a full bowl on my phunnel, i've never smoked a full bowl before. after about an hour w/ a 1/2 packed bowl, im done and when im ready to clean, looks like theres still good tobaccy in there and thats from 1/2 a bowl.

It is just my opinion, I think the Medium / Large Phunnels are much toooo big, and a WASTE of tobacco. If you have the money to spend on tobacco that will never be burned because it is sitting in the bottom of the bowl. Then by all means, go for the Medium or Large .. but if you are looking for the most bang for your buck, and don't want to waste your tobacco, then I would suggest that you just get a Small Phunnel, or a Standard Egyptian Bowl that people have been using for hundreds of years. That is just my two cents ...

I have a Medium Phunnel and would be happy to sell it if anybody wants it .. only used once!

I use large phunnel bowls. I usually pack a 50g bowl and use 6 coconaras or 3 exotica sticks for a 2 hour session. It does suck sometimes to see the the untouched shisha at the bottom when you clean the bowl. Does anyone ever pull back the foil and mix the shisha during a session?

I love my small funnel and would never buy anything bigger.

Ya sometimes if coals have died I will take the foil off and pick out the char then mix it up a bit. Works nicely.

Default Re: Issues with the Medium Phunnel Bowl...

im wondering about what sizes phunnels you all have. my small phunnel (got it from eric, so i know its small) holds 35-40g of non tangiers. the medium i have can probably hold easily 65g, and from what ive seen the larges can probably hold up to 75-80g.

i dont even know how i can put 25g into the medium phunnel and have it hit, it would literally be a tiny lining on the bottom of the bowl.

I can put about 15 grams into my Small Phunnel with a Mod. That's why a 50 gram of tobacco lasts me 3 sessions. I honestly never run out of tobacco. Or coal.

The other small i got (the newer one) looks less reformed and holds 25 grams with the mod, it's much deeper then my old one. It doesn't smoke as well as my old one though.

The medium holds 45 with the mod, sometimes more if i pack it a little more dense if there's a bunch of people.

All i can say is that the sizes and shapes and depths vary...

Yeah I agree Scoop, the ratings that HS has for amount each one can hold seems low. I got a Medium by mistake (from Smiley), and I felt like that thing would hold 50gms! That is just a complete waste in my book .. I only used it once ..

I was only posting what HS had on their site. I think it holds MORE though .. the Small Phunnel alone can easily hold 30gms

I really like the Saudi Arabian one that HC carries! It is big enough to hold about 20gms and keep a nice cushion of air between the foil and bowl. Provides my best smokes
