Default Glass bowls

I bought an all glass bowl... it holds about half of the shisha a regular egyptian clay bowl does..
but it kept getting way way too hot
i usually use two squares of japanese coals on my egyptian bowls and they work great... i would break up ONE square and even THAT way too hot..
any suggestions?

I have a pyrex cyclone bowl and it is worthless. I tried using it 3 times with varying amounts of coals and within 10-15 the smoke was harsh and scorched tasting. The problem I think is the glass is very thin and heats up way too fast. My glass bowl looks brand new, sitting in my box of stuff I don't use anymore. It's sitting right next to some QL's and a combo bowl.

I was looking at the small glass phunnel from mnhookahs.com it seems to have great reviews. And from my understanding with a mod it can cut the session down to about 45mins. Which is what I'm looking for!

Yeah I mean the ones at mn looks cool, but I know for sure I wouldn't be saying that if I buy one and it falls on the floor :O

And for $50?!?! I understand that glass phunnel is hand-made but damn!

I've smoked from the glass funnels that mnh sells and they work extremely well.I've never used the jet bowl but can tell you that they are very sexy and prolly worth the money.very sturdy as well! pyrex however I hear can be a problem.
