Default Glass Phunnel + Glass screen = crappy first experience

Hey all !

1st post here, very nice forums Been hitting the search button feature a lot, thank god for vBulletin fast engine!

Tonight I've had my first experience with a Phunnel. Unfortunately I had to order my new Hookah (a KM Thalata) and the rest seperately. So this morning arrived the Tangiers and AF flavors with the Small MNH Glass Phunnel and the screen.

I've been smoking out a generic no-name Hookah for over a year and it broke, and only found the huge Hookah market when I googled it.

For the glass phunnel and screen owners, how tight do you pack the bowl and does the screen touch the shisha?

My first bowl was Tangiers Kashmir Peach that I acclimated for 8 hours. Packed it tight with the shisha barely touching the screen. I put 3 burning cocos on it, and man... I got almost instant smoke, it was dense, but so harsh, and no taste.

I removed one coco, the smoke was less harsh but still had little taste. I could see the shisha almost bowling through the screen, so I ended up changing for AF, which I hear is less difficult to pack.

This time I had the shisha not even touching the screen, and used 3 cocos. The smoke was dense the whole time, not harsh at all, but the taste was not very present.

I smoked in regular clay bowls before and even that experience was better.

Any tips for you owners would be appreciated! EDIT: Now that I think of it, I never really mixed and stir neither of the shishas.... could this be the reason for the lack in taste?

Thank you!

Tiger

did you put holes in the foil over the hole in the phunnel?
i usually make three rings around the hole, but i'm gonna try like in this vid soon

I used a glass screen, not foil. Hence the dilemna.

I've had awesome bowls of AF with foil in the past... just this glass phunnel plus glass screen combo is kicking my ass.

Your shisha was touching the screen and there is problem #1. And i think the burnt taste from the first mishap stained the remaining shisha in the bowl therefore your quick fix of just removing the touching shisha didn't work too well! I don't have either of those items but im sure someone with them will comment. Until then try to pack tight without having the shisha touch the screen!

(Oh also I think I have seen people using two coco's for that kinda setup!)

when i pack tangiers the shisha always touches the screen. it should be. ive smoked AF with the glass screen and even when it touched it was fine.

make sure you stir. the juice in the tangiers is the flavor and smoke component

Did your shisha burn on top? Doesn't it ruin the taste a little?

I'm really gonna have to find a quick way to clean the glass screen because scraping would take forever. Hopefully bowling water+ baking soda will do it.

@Scoop: Do you pack tight with AF as well? I did see your videos and you pack Tangiers VERY tightly. Of course in your video you used the ceramic bowl, the small glass one is a little different and MNH either forgot to add the scallis mod to my order or customs misplaced it when they went through the whole package...

I'd appreciate more tips on this.
