Default How this bowl would work?

In a Funnel style, just more holes. It would be a bitch to setup, but wouldnt the flavor be more tasty because you would inhale smoke which covered more tobacco area from the bowl?

There would probably be issues with the holes getting closed off by the foil.

The funnel already has good airflow. More holes is not going to change much. The surface are that is being drawn from does not have as much to do with flavor as the surface area that is being heated. But regardless of that with a normal funnel the air is drawn from the whole bowl already.

Oh ya and I can tell you that those bowls would be a bitch to make. They would have to be pretty large to have that number of towers in it spaced so you could get tobacco all around them. Check out the superchief bowl. The idea is kind of similar to what you are proposing.

it would be too large and you would have to use tiny pieces of coal to avoid sucking in straight coal.

it might, work and if it did the flavour would be really good, however if it is not packed perfectly then the holes may become blocked, blocking the airflow, giving no smoke or a really hard pull; but if it works it will be great.

It would defeat the whole purpose of the funnel. THe phunnel was meant to keep tobacco juices in the bowl instead of letting it drain out. That is bad apparently or something. A funnel with more holes would be a standard egyptian with a center chunk that is unusable.

Think he meant have more spires. So it would still maintain the phunnels purpose of keeping juices in.

However the idea itself is pretty silly...if you have ever used a phunnel and looked at theshisha everywhere the only slight flaw in design is that the shisha on the bottom is undercooked. This design would not solve that problem. However the scallis mod does.

The diagram shows holes in the bowl section. thus not keeping the purpose of the phunnel.

No, its not holes like in the Egyptian bowl, is 5 holes just like the one in phunnel bowl. A bowl like that would be a totally bitch to setup, also more difficult in coal management, but if got it right, how would be smoking?

OH. Uh no idea. Sounds like it would be crazy. As to how it would smoke I can't imagine. But it would look slick.

so it's like a Quad-Phunnel?

Your coals would burn very hot every pull and burn your tobacco out very quickly.

I don't know it might do well on the novelty market but I don't know how practical it would be. You may have to go through a few redesigns and some tweaking to even get it going but it could probably work though I can't imagine it being any better than a regular phunnel if that good. I would say if you are thinking of throwing it then I would make the individual funnel holes 1/5 the size of a standard phunnel to not disturb airflow too much.

[FONT=Arial]I got a bowl like this.
Also with the vortex system but its a glas bowl

The main factor for buying a bowl like this were that i am not longer need a mod too smoke or a spacer ring.
Those things i need to smoke with my Tangiers Phunnel Bowl.
I hope you understand what i am trying to say :>
