i have had pyrex bowls in the past. the one i had smoked pretty well but the heat management is much more difficult than with clay, IMO.

Just spend the extra $4 and grab yourself a phunnel. Pyrex is ok, but its not really an improvement over a standard clay bowl.

I'm a college student on a budget lol. $4 is like a whole night of drinking. But since it is the holiday's i might just spend a little more for one.

I've gotten one free at a local smoke shop with a purchase. Not too fond of all the melted shisha juice just dripping in the stem. Phunnel FTW.

Glass FTL Heats up way to quickly and burns your tobacco. They are worthless.

the over all feeling i have seen on the bowls that are sold noted as pyrex have been bad. the "glass phunnels" have seemed to have better reviews. i know not that the phunnels are made out of but the pyrex bowls are a borosilica glass (it can take thermal shock better and from a manufacturing stand point the glass hardens up at a higher temp that soda like glass).

over all glass doesnt transfer heat well so you could have part that burns and part of the shisha not hot enough more easily than ceramics. also some have had their bowls break from a very very very small thermal shock when they touched tongs to the glass.

personally i will stick to glass being the base on my hookahs and keep my bowls in the ceramics family

There are cheap drinking towns.

When I was in south tahoe, i remember getting a double jack and coke for a buck I was like no fucking way, and proceeded to consume like 30 or so that night lol.
