Question Trying to figure out which to get...

I've already read all the review on most of the bowls I can find. After hunting around, checking specials and such not, I'm down to basically 2 vendors/choices.

I'm looking for a SMALL phunnel or phunnel-type bowl. Nothing screamingly fancy, probably NOT glass (not had good experiences w/ glass). I used to have a MED and it was TOO DANG large for me smoking on my own.

I'm ALSO NOT USING Tangiers tobacco either - this is for drippier tobaccos I come across (Lay, new AF, and the like).

So here's the stats:

~MNHookah lists Small Phunnels (12.95) plus a 3 pk of 250g AF (25.00).
~Sahara Smoke has the Vortex (9.95) plus a 3 pk of 250g AF (29.95 - but came up in my chart for 26.95)

*MNH's came up 36 and change before shipping. SS's came up 29.46 before shipping.*

I wanted to try out CH, but only has MED phunnels on-site. MED's are too large!

So which bowl should I try for - the small phunnel or the vortex? Or should I just forgo the bowl and just pop for the tobacco? (Which means I can go with other vendors).

This is the first "hookah" purchase since late feb/march for me, so I'm kinda existed to get some new stuff.

CH has small phunnels, they're just not listed as them. the green to white one and the black/blue ones aren't medium, they're small.
I say wait it out for maybe a couple of days and see if there are more reviews up for the vortex?

If you wait 2 days i can tell you for certain. I can give a very extensive review of the Vortex, and so can Mr.Bungle.

Hummm... I went and had a closer look @ CH's phunnels. Some do look smaller but I'm not sure. Plus for what I was looking for (phunnel bowl + 3 250g AF's - Van/Pip/Water), they would be the priciest. Maybe I'll PM him and see what's what.

Blarg... all of you know how hard waiting is, but I guess I can try. LOL - knowing my run of luck, the money will be gone by the time I figure out things.

And yes, I based my order partially on his review.... but more on the overall price tag of the order. I am severely limited on funds - SS won out, they ran 38.01 shipped for the bowl and (3) 250g's of AF.

One day I will get a phunnel, but I want a larger order to help out balance things more. I'm hoping by years end I can afford my KM & MZ as well too!
