a mod will let you use less tobacco and prevent the tobacco from touching the foil from dipping down. more info in these posts: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/searc...searchid=83891

a phunnel mod is used to cover the large hole in the center and redirects the flow of air to go underneath the shisha and it saves tobacco

MNHookah.com has them

you dont need it really, but you see some difference and use some less shisha. they are kind of a pain to clean unless you just soak it tin denture cleaner. i rarely use mine, but i also dont use the phunnel that much either, more lately but still not my go to bowl

+1 didn't try the denture cleaner method, might have been a good idea. Never got the chance cuz it broke the first time I dropped it in the sink. A little too delicate, pyrex would be a better material

not trying to steal the thread away, but in my experience, the glass heated up and the tobacco burnt all around the mod

it probably is pyrex. "pyrex" is just a trade name for a borosilica glass, they use it because it hardens up at a much higher temp so its easier to manufacture and has slightly different other characteristics than soda lime glass

the reason it broke is more from the process of fabrication as apposed to the material itself, probably just wasnt cooled right or when you dropped it it hit just right or just wrong depending how you look at it. i have had glass ive blown break when it fell 2 inches and other glass ive dropped or gotten knocked around a lot harder, all about the same thickness, just hit it in a weak spot

no offence... if u have to use the mod ur doing something wrong... i have one and it sits... i can use either a small amount or a large amount of tobacco with unmodified tangiers bowls... and another thing... to hell with the chinese phunnel bowls... if ur getting a phunnel get a tangiers bowl.

I just use a Tea Candle tin. You can get them from IKEA (something like 1000 candles for $5). Just cut 5-6 little triangles out of the tin and your ready to go

you just have to be sure to heat them up to get all wax out and make sure there is no liner in it

ya wonderland i agree pretty much with you, i notice a slight flavor difference if i use the phunnel as is compared to with a mod or a standard bowl but i think it is just the fact that the air just passes over the shisha instead of through it.
