Default Phunnel Bowl Help

Ok so i just recentely got a 2 new KM's and some accessories :
EXOTICA white 40" and an AMOURA red 36".

I started smoking from the exotica for now, just cuz its so damn sexy...

Anyways to get to my point. Everytime i set up my phunnel, I pack it nicely, leave a bit of room 1/8 of an inch under foil. Make 3 rings of holes. None in the middle. I dont have HD foil but i compensate by doubling even tripling it sometimes. And no matter how tight i wrap it around the phunnel bowl it ALWAYS gets sucked down and restricts air flow making my pulls hard, if not impossible.

I usually start with 3 QL coals, and remove one when it starts up.
Ive smoked with my hookah with the regular egyptian bowl and i tell you its GREAT!

What am i doing wrong? Or what should i do ? cuz i really wanna smoke from my phunnel...

sometimes the middle part may be too high...some people poke a hole in the middle...otherwise a mod will fix that.

This how I set it up and it works perfectly. I poke holes just like you would in any other bowl, except I do not poke holes in the middle. You can poke holes in the middle just like you would with an Egyptian bowl but its your preference. I discovered today that it does not matter how you poke holes, it matters on how tight you have the foil wrapped. If your foil is not pulled tightly you will not be able to draw good smoke.

Maybe ill try poking more holes. But i still wont poke a hole in the middle.
I do it after i see that the foil is getting sucked in and becomes unsmokable. But then the smoke is sooo thin. Besides i dont like the fact ashes will go down stem.
But i think bradedup got it. The middle part is too high...i just measured it now, and its litterally 0.3 cm (0.1 inches) away from the rim of the phunnel. That sux cuz i got 2 phunnel bowls and theyre both like that. Unless thats how theyre suppose to be...Whats the height difference with your phunnel bowls?

If thats the case then a mod is what ill get.
