Most people will say a Phunnel bowl is better than a standard egyptian clay bowl. Reason being it keeps the juice in your tobacco from dropping down the stem.

i think that in a vaccuum a phunnel is better, but most of the time, the egyptian is just as good. I have to agree with everyone when they say that phunnels are a waste of sheesha and coals. and managing the heat on my phunnel is still baffling me.

With a mod my medium tangier's phunnel doesn't use that much more shisha than my egyptian. And it definately improves the smoke when I use the phunnel.

i have to admit that i only use either a phunnel (reg or chinese) or an egyptian clay bowl, they are both great but I use them equally, especially the egyptian for drier tobacco.

phunnels use up to much tobacco .. I use a standard Egyptian bowl, the same bowl they have been using for hundreds of years .. I do like the vortex though, because it doesn't hold as much tobacco as a phunnel, but is still the same effect with a mod built in!

I love the phunnel, i haven't used my egyptian bowl since i've gotten it. I don't mind the amount of shisha it uses because i usually smoke in big groups, so we don't have to change the bowl more than once. I think it is easier to manage heat with a phunnel too.... but thats just me ^_^

My small phunnel uses less tobacco then my Egyptian bowls (and Syrian bowl), and is much better for smoking the tobacco Hajo sends to me.

I ONLY smoke Nakhla in an Egyptian bowl. It cannot fail in one, Nakhla loves tradition!
