Default Broke My MYA Bowl

Is it just me? This is the second one I broke, pushing it onto the top of the stem

all bowls may break with time and use - the repeated heating and cooling of the material causes microscopic fractures, leading to failure.

I've done the same thing myself twice now. That's why I have 3-4 extra bowls lying around. Hope you didn't cut your hand - my first one did. Ouch!

Sam jinxed me!!!! I just chipped my QT base while pulling the stem off after a nice smoke. I pulled up and the neck chipped in 2 places, I am so angry, its only 1 month old.

yes, I will agree, they do smoke well ...

which leads me to my next question...are there any comparable ones!? That are traditional style, and not gimmicky.

I cant think of one that has that depth on it like a MYA without being really wide....

One bowl I can recommend is the Social Smoke bowls. The inside of them have a flat bottom like a traditional Egyptian bowl.... I have a medium... and its still slightly largish for me. (I am a solo smoker)

Earlier this year ( I think ) , I was at Scalli's house and Ali and Jeff from SS were here showcasing the new bowls... they said they were cooking up a smaller bowl sometime soon.... havent seen it on the website.... but they might have a few 1st run protos laying around... you'd have to email em and see if they have em if you were interested.....something I have been meaning to do myself.

Anyway.... that line of bowls are really nice and well made... basically a better mousetrap based on an original/ traditional design.... without re-inventing the wheel.

I wish Tangiers would run a line of smaller and slightly deeper bowls without all the bells and whistles.... his bowls are really quality stuff.... I just dont care for the whiz-bang goofery.

yeah, I would like to get one that holds about the same amount of shisha as the MYAs do. What do you think about these? http://www.hookahcompany.com/images_...s/1639_big.jpg

I will look into the SS bowls. The medium sounds good too.

eh...

I have one like tht with the lid.... same bowl... just has the lid.

The only trouble with those is that you really need a white grommet to seat up well. it'll slump over and damn near fall off using my grommets and the hard Egyptian kind.

I have three of those bowl - 2 smaller, 1 x-lg. They work alright, but don't hold much and tend to burn certain brands of shisha.

I am going to order a few Clay bowls and one of these: http://www.hookahcompany.com/high_gr...h_295_prd1.htm

I own 3 of the ones you posted a link for - a red, green and white one.

Yes, that other bowl (the one in my last link) looks very much like a MYA, that's why I want one.

Plus, I am thinking of getting an Unglazed one (from HC) for Peach flavors only - unglazed w/ asorb the taste of the shisha, thus why I plan on it for a single flavor.
