vortex for me. i don't see why most think it's hard to clean. boil some water. put the bowl in with it and let it boil for a while. the get a scrubby pad and some elbow grease. that's what works for me anyways.

i can usually just rinse my phunnel off using my fingers to get off cooked shisha.

It did however clog the center hole after a while, the foil stuck to it, but it was easy enough to fix by sticking a toothpick in the foil and pulling up slightly.

I don't like the idea of juice going down the stem, so I've only been using the small phunnel, seems to work well with maybe 5 grams (adverts suggested it holds 10-15g.) No reason you couldn't fill half the bowl too, and keep the coals over that half.

honestly ive only had a few shishas that leak down the stem. AF does, but if you mix it with a dryer shisha it usually doesnt. jewels did but it was also half liquid, tangiers will if you smoke it in a standard bowl but thats pretty much it

I like my small Phunnel with and without the mod. I don't like the drip from regular bowls. Never used a Vortex yet and don't think I will due to the holes sounding like a pita to clean.

Simple answer try them all and see what YOU like best. Since you're the one who is going to be using it. I personaly have a small phunnel with mod that sometimes I do use and sometimes I don't use.

it's actually not a problem at all

I rinse out the tobacco ..then i put my finger inside and there's usually nothing there but a small bit of ash kinda stuff.. looks brown. it's pretty easy. :] and my last bowl of SB Strawberry Kiwi lasted about 2 - 2 1/2 hours because of it. woot!

I use only the standard bowl that came with my mya, but I hear a lot of good things about the Phunnels. A buddy of mine just got a phunnel, he said that the smoke didn't seem to thick to him(lighter than normal); But, he probably just didn't pack it enough. It's a lot bigger bowl than a standard hookah bowl from what I can tell.

I like using the Phunnel with a ghetto mod (tea candle)...I get really thick, flavorful smoke.

phunnels smoke differently, no doubts about it the flavor is slightly different but not huge but some people will notice, i sure do but its not bad.

as to the mya bowls, im not to impressed with them, they are too deep and when i used mine for some reason i got all sorts of ash down the stem and got a really bad flavor, and my friend that uses his pretty regularly has complained a few times about the top ending up burned and the bottom being really untouched, i like deep bowls but that seems a little to deep

just use less heat, like 2 coconut type coals as apposed to 3 like you use on other shishas, also double foiling wouldnt be a bad idea unless your using HD (hot heavy strength, no matter what people say, its thinner and smokes differently than HD, and thicker than regular)

Im smoking Some HF now out of a standard bowl.. you just pack it very loosly as you would most shishas and put the foil on really tight if the foil touches the tobacco your screwed.. then poke many small holes with a pin.. and it smokes great very nice clouds and great flavor.

I am using a standard bowl but I would like to try the other two styles. Perhaps soon I will. I think the market close to here carries phunnel bowls so I plan to swing by there tonight and see if they have them and how much they are.
