Default funnel bowl idea/question

ok so these new spiffy glass screens are just a disk with a big home in the center and it works well, but for foil on a funnel its "correct" to put holes all around the center and maybe a hole or 2 over the center... sooo why the hell should it be that way. shouldnt a lot of holes or one big hole (assuming the foil is cleared out below so it doesnt just block off the rest of the funnel) work well?

i think im going to try this when i move in and get time to smoke some more... and figure out my funnel a little better

if there was one big whole in the center, you'd be pulling air through your hookah, not smoke. Your smoke will be wispy as hell if you only make one big hole in the middle.

What he is asking is why it is different for the glass screens if one hole should not work.

The glass screens/bowls distribute the heat more efficently then clay or ceramic. MNH's jet glass phunnels also make use of the custom mod which when coupled with the glass screen directs the air through the large hole in the screen, then through the shisha, then into the mod and down into the stem of the hookah. It's really just a prettier/more efficent way to distribute heat when your using the glass funnels that MNH makes with the screens.

So could someone with a phunnel and mod get away with just making a hole in the middle?

im pretty sure on a scientific level glass and aluminum distribute heat pretty close to the same and the ceramic heats up and distributes it pretty well as well.

ive seen some people using the glass screen and funnel with no mod and it worked fine so idk

You can't make a hole in the middle with the mod.. The mod covers up the hole..

Smoked some AF orange/peach with the new screen on my Tangiers small phunnel. Not the biggest clouds i'v ever had but def enough to blow some bomb ass rings. I love this thing

Yes you could.. But what would that do? Foil should be pressing on the mod pretty tight, not gonna get any air flowing through it. When I used to smoke with a mod and a regular medium phunnel I would just make two rows of circles..

again though, if you can use one big hole on the glass screen it should work on a piece of foil
