Hookah fruit head VS hookah bowl Which one is better?
Pros and cons of hookah bowls
Some of the main problems of traditional bowls are that the holes are located at the bottom of the bowl. that’s the problem because juicy shisha will drain, through the holes, and will and up in the hookah base.
That’s why you’ll lose the taste of shisha and the shisha will burn up quicker. For that reason, it’s highly recommended to use less juicy shisha if you’re smoking from that kind of the bowl.
This problem is solved by introducing modern types of traditional bowls into the game, and by that, I mean on phunnel and vortex as the best.
These two type of bowls will give you the best smoking experience because those bowls are designed on the way which will keep all the shisha juices in the bowl. The result is more flavors, good heat management, and long-lasting session.
The best heat management will give you materials such as clay and ceramic while the metal, silicone, and glass ones are less popular among the pro shisha smokers, but I don’t mean that is a bad option by any mean, you will just get different smoking experience.
So if you use traditional (Egyptian or Syrian) bowls which cames with the most of hookahs use less juicy shisha such as Nakhla or Soex, and for more juicy shisha such as starbuzz and al-fakher, I highly recommend phunnel or vortex.
