Default personal pref on bowls

phunnel with mod or without and vortex ... since I am new and don't have any (phunnel is otw) I am wondering if I should get a vortex or the mod for my phunnel or if it's all the same thing with slight differences.

that's wierd because when my mod broke for my phunnel bowl I hated how it smoked without it. Seemed like to much air was getting out when I went to take a hit. I love the mod and reordered one last week!

I LOVEEEEE my vortex. it is emazing because although it comes in one size, you can smoke a smaller amount just in it. it is that awesome. i am in love with it. to be honest the phunnel with the mod is the same thing as the vortex.

If you are doing the holes right there would be no ash on the grommet. :P

Its never been a problem for me.

Phunnel alone. I used the mod a couple times and haven't since.

I love my phunnel bowl with no mod. I still have not bought the mod yet so I don't know how it smokes with it. The one bowl I do want to get next is the vortex bowl then I want to make a review and compare all three. I still love my standard Egyptian bowl that came with my km.

I'm all for standard bowls. Let me tell you why...

With standard bowls, they can really serve you well. In most cases, yes they do leak juice on the stem but every bowl except for the phunnel will do that. The advantages are that you don't have to use much mo'assel so that you don't waste, it doesn't require lots of heat, and they are very cheap. Standard bowls always do the job best for me.

With a phunnel, you usually need to use a good amount of mo'assel and coals as well. Now don't get me wrong, the bowl works wonders with holding the juices and keeping the flavour nice, but as others have said ash can get down your stem or on your grommet (mostly depends on hole pattern and if you don't get it right the pull will be terrible because the foil will cover the hole.) Also, lots of time mo'assel will be wasted with a phunnel and I like to know that I got the most out of my session.

I've never used a mod so let's move along to the Vortex. Sure it's a nice bowl but it has 2 MAJOR flaws. 1.) The 4 holes in the cone CAN become clogged and it's a pain in the @$$ to clean that out and 2.) Why in the hell did they have to make the stem on the Vortex so damn wide!?!?!? This really makes it frustrating to use as it's hard to keep air tight, and that's a key factor in your setup.

Just my two cents

I have never tried a phunnel so i can't tell anything about it to you. I use normal bowls and vortexes too. But i prefer the normal bowl more, because it's great for solo sessions, it lasts for about an hour or so and it's enough for me. Sometimes when i have friends over or i just have time for a 2-3 hour session than i use my vortex bowl; but on other occasions i think it's just a vaste of tobacco. Yes, with a normal bowl juices will get into your stem, but if you clean your hookah after every session like me (and i think most of us) than it's not a big deal So i can say the same thing that my syrian brotha' told, that normal bowls just do the work for me

Definitely a standard bowl for me. Never does me wrong and is easy to manage and set up. I have a phunnel bowl and I regret buying it and it just sits on the shelf.

Phunnel produces more smoke and makes shisha taste nicer

Vortex for me. It heats up faster and is smaller than the small phunnel, so it's better for personal use. The only downside is that cleaning it is a drag.

Personally, I'm a traditionalist, so I like my Egyptian clay bowl...but I will smoke from my medium Phunnel often (no mod). For the Polls sake, I voted Normal!

The only bowl i've ever used is a standard clay egyptian bowl. I've never had a single problem with it and it's worked great for me thus far, so i guess i've never really had a reason to try anything else. I'm curious to try a vortex bowl, though.
