dang.. I feel like the phunnel isnt getting the credit that it's needed.
I bought my phunnel and haven't used anything else since then.
It has made such a tremendous difference in my sessions and if i did change what bowl i would use, i would probably use my vortex but still the phunnel kills it. IMO

phunnel bowls are the absolute best thing i switched up when is started smoking hookah. the flavor is better, the cleanup is easier, and packing is a dream! Oh and the smoke is SOOO GOOOD.

It is a tiny "cap" that goes over the hole in the middle of the phunnel bowls. At the bottom of the cap, it is creased slightly to allow air to travel through the bowl, but this helps direct the air through the shisha giving more flavor/smoke. They are made from glass or homemade ones can be made from bottle caps or something. Theres a few tutorials that show what you need to do.

vortex for non-solo sessions and very drippy wet mo'assel and standard for solo sessions. Except my standard egyptian head that came with my KM is the smallest bowl ive ever seen, it holds less tobacco than the tiny bowls that came with my pumpkin hookahs, saves a bunch of tobacco, most economical way to smoke, flavor starts to die at about the 45 min mark.

I think the vortex holds less tobacco than the small phunnel bowl, which is ideal, they should rly mass produce the mini phunnels i think, they are nicer looking than the vortex so that might be the selling point there since they would be competing i would imagine.

Oh and i prefer cleaning the ash that falls onto grommet and stem when using a phunnel/vortex than cleaning the molasses that drips down to the stem when using a standard. Thats why ill use the vortex for solo sessions with for example AF esk apple because its ridiculously wet and if I only go for an hr ill light more coals up later in the day and go at it again with no probs.

i have both.
i personally waste more shisha in the vortex. Example would be starbuzz it only burns to about halfway and I have leftover junk. I don't get that problem with my phunnel. Also I have grown accustomed to NOT using the scalli mod and it still smokes beastly. I barely use my vortex anymore.

you i realized after smoking chocomint out of a phunnel the other night, its a waste. yes the flavor is great but im using about 4 times as much tobacco in it as i am in my mod bowl and i can barely get it to 2 sets of coals.

that being said i will do it some times still but its pointless to do it every day IMHO
