Default bowl broke need recommendations

My bowl broke...

I am looking to buy a vortex or tangier phunell with mod. Isn't a vortex almost the same as doing that mod to your phunnel? Please post experiences

Nope, not exactly, The vortex has holes to the sides that are still above your shisha level or just at the top where the juices are safe from leaking to the stem. The mod is right at the base, so when you suck air it get better circulation through your whole shisha, since the sucking is happening to the bottom where the juices are. While on the vortex, there will be a point where all of the sucking is going to go through the burnt tobacco (well it's kinda the same for the mod anyway).

Overall both are great and what I mentioned doesn't make a big difference. I recommend the Phunnel + mod though. Maybe it's merely psychological for me but I feel the holes being at the bottom means better flavor.

vortex is all you need, and holds less tobacco!

if you want to waste a lot of shisha, then by all means go with the phunnel.

Cheers!

r4g3, I used 3 coconara's for my med Phunnel to heat up and it wasn't enough. Probably need 4 to get it going (3 with wind cover I suppose) and 3 later (2 with wc) to keep it hot. I know that's a lot, maybe I'm just impatient with my shisha heating up.

@Sambooka really? I use 20-30g for my med Phunnel and 20-25g for my Egyptian, I don't see a huge difference, it's even slightly less with a mod. I don't know how well your vortex lasts, but I get 2-3 hours of smoking from one bowl with my phunnel so I'm not very concerned about an extra 5g, to each his own though.

fight fight fight!

actually thanks for the tips guys, but the vortex is kinda outta my league to spend on a hookah bowl and I'd much rather buy a small and medium phunnel + scalli at the same time for the price of the vortex.

sambooka prob is sponsored by saharasmoke to addy the vortex
j/k i love you guys

PS whens next meet on stickam! we should have a locked room w/ Sambooka as host and some moderators from here

I am sponsored by nobody, I am just a regular hookah joe like everyone else here .. I think a sponsorship to promote a product defeats the purpose of this site!

Anyway, I have a small and medium phunnel. I have used my medium once and it sits in a drawer (that thing is a beast and bottomless pit to my tobacco!) If you MUST get one, go for the small phunnel.

I use the vortex mostly because it has the "mod" built in (yeah I know it has holes different then the mod, but does it really matter? This stuff is all just gimmicky anyhow! vortex included!) But I like the vortex better because it fits my KM better and holds less tobacco. I still use my small phunnel occasionally, I just prefer the vortex. I got tired of putting a mod in the phunnel, call me lazy! Even when I use the small phunnel now, I don't use a mod with it.

That is why I like the vortex better, holds less tobacco and no mod hassle!
.. We are all entitled to our opinions .. that is what this site is all about I am just offering a recommendation based on my personal use. Doesn't make it right or wrong ..

Cheers!

go w/ the vortex, it heats up quicker and less tobacco + you don't need a mod

Sounds like someone looking to create the ultimate bowl and can throw clay could make something like the vortex with the holes in the bottom but angled upward so as to keep the benefits of both (airflow from the bottom of the bowl, keeping juices in the bowl, and no mod to lose or put aside out of laziness).

you gotta make sure that if you were to buy a vortex to ask them to give you one with the holes at the TOP because sometimes they give you (they did me -_- and a few others) weird ones with holes almost at the bottom.. which is pretty lame.

I prefer the phunnel because theres only one hole to worry about and because its located where its at, its pretty much worry-free. oh and i don't use a mod but everyone says it seems really helpful with getting heat to the bottom of the bowl and all.

I have o say phunnel bowl all the way. I've tried the vortex and you may as well use a regular Egyptian clay bowl. ALso with the phunnell you can save some $$$ and get the chinese ones which work just as good.
Just like shisha, it's all personal preference though.

I'd recommend a funnel bowl, they are great, improve your smoking experience and make cleaning your hookah easier.

*smacks head*

This is why I just say, get a "standard" bowl! They have worked for centuries! all this mod stuff and gimmicky bowls is just confusing to the newer folks. and correct me if I am wrong kidpoker, now you probably feel like you have to have this right?

and stay away from those double headed bowls and triple bowls and quads! eek! those are ridiculous! haha I should do a review on one .. I have a double I bought from someone for a $1

i HAD a vortex bowl... but it broke during post-production of making a review video haha *tear*.

the only NEGATIVE thing i can say about it is that if i didn't make sure i made a small buffer of air between the tobacco and holes ((like, half a cm, not a big deal)) the shisha sometimes got sucked INTO the hole and would clog it. OTHER THAN THAT, it's a good bowl and recommend it.

and i paid 10 bucks for mine at a head shop ((where most of their stuff was over priced)), and i think that's about the same price for a phunnel ((someone correct me if i'm wrong)).

ps. i feel that the mod is worthless.
