Jesus christ. When people are complaining about the phunnel bowl taking a lot of shisha there can't be much support for this. I have never used one but I assume that there would be a lot of waste without the added benefit of the funnel design.

Bigger bowls in my opinion are pointless. My hookah came with a standard bowl, and then another ceramic ring to put over it (it looked like an extention or something... aparently it was a small windcover, but it worked well as a bigger bowl). The monster must have taken at least 60-70g of shisha. After over an hour, 4 ql coals, and 5 people smoking on it pretty frequently, we only got through half the bowl, and wasted probabally like 30-40g. Definately experiment with other types of bowls or techniques before getting a monster bowl.

I've used these (the Social Smoke version). It's actually pretty shallow and certainly doesn't use nearly as much as a large (or maybe even a medium) phunnel.

A note of caution -- I've broken two of these bowls seating them on the stem (by using too much pressure)

Nothing like this though.

I agree with most posts on this thread that a bigger bowl does waste alot of flavour though i have a huge head, which has a large circumference but not deep at all and to tell you the truth its probably one of the best ive used!

Ha, thats for very intense people only. I'd be okay if it was shallower - i find I'm not a fan of deeper bowls. its too easy to burn the top without touching the bottom

I think I have the same thing you are talking about - used it once in "jumbo" mode and it worked well. It lasted well over 2 hours (maybe 3?) with 6 or 7 of us on it, and in the end we smoked the full bowl without any burning or harshness. I hadn't used it in a long time, but just the other day I pulled it out and smoked it without the upper "ring" and it worked like a regular Egyptian bowl. I'll try to remember to snap some pictures later.

My friend picked one of those up from a local shop and NEVER uses it because it wastes so much tobacco and takes forever for the coals to warm up the bowl. Dont bother wasting your money.

I've used one before and it was totally pointless... just wasted more tobacco and more coals.
