Mini Phunnel Talk

1,866 posts in this topic
I figured with the advent of the mini phunnel via Eric and his laison Indian Villager, we should have an official geek out thread.

Let's post our thoughts and opinions, etc. here so as not to overwhelm the order thread in the trade section with random talk and excitement.

I'll start. Okay so I was excited to begin with when Villager came into chat last night with the heads up that these bad boys would probably soon be a reality (hot teachers wrestlin oatmeal anyone? I am the valevictorian!).

But we get to choose our own colors!?!?! Hell yeah! On that note Hojo and Stuie you guys are awesome for chosing the same color scheme - turbulent indigo bottom, black top FTW!

I'm so geeked to get more info like the general dimensions and all that jazz!

Mini Phunnels WOO!!!!!!

Eric and Villager you guys are awesome for this one and it shall go down in the annals of HF awesomeness! (no not anals you pervs)

Thanks for the relief thread ninja. I was considering making one of these so that random folks don't flood the other one!
Btw we have well over 20 orders. Last I checked the thread has over 32 replies and only so many could have been from me!

No pics man. This is all a preorder system. Eric said if I get enough people He'll make em. He had some other insance colors (I think the dude was just reading a box of crayolas) But I told him to select the most awesome colors. And for you impatient fools (including myself) This is going to suck as it will take three weeks just to get from initial order to eric to my place and then the distribution madness begins!

This is a really awesome idea. I always wanted a phunnel half the size of my jet glass. Pics of one would be awesome (next to a small phunnel to see the difference)

sure thing villager, i figured its gunna be hell enough for you to sort everything out lol.

Yeah Stuie I cant see how if we have this much demand and the follow through from us on the money side he wouldnt consider it for mainstream production, though it is pretty fun to be in an exclusive "club" or sorts lol.

And I was considering ordering a scalli for my medium. BWA HA HA HAH HAAAH!

How long do you ugys think 12-15 will last? I can usually get a good 1.25 - 1.5 hrs out of that much in a normal egyptian bowl so maybe 2 hrs? whatdya think?

I've gotten three hours out of my small phunnel with still juicy stuff on the bottom. This miniphunnel thing should last 1-2hrs which is just perfect!

Also, I've waited 4 and a half damn months to place the order I should be placing on Monday for a working pipe (KM BABY YEAH!) and supplies so a month is no big deal to me.

edit - I'm gonna need a bullet proof case for this sucker so it doesnt break in case its a limited run and doesnt take off into mass production.... Edited by giant ninja robot

I'm really sick of packing half-phunnels so I'm looking forward to this. Keeping my fingers crossed about shipping to Canada.
Best thing to happen to humankind since the invention of, well, the original phunnel biggrin.gif

I can't wait to see how it'll smoke, being so small. It'll be interesting to try to pack Tangiers OG into it XD

I'm pretty new to this board, long time hookah smoker though. And I am definitely in for a small phunnel. Love the phunnel but just can't justify using that much shisha. Where do I sign up?

The first time I ever even visited this forum, I heard of the majesty of the phunnel. Everyone was raving about it, and with good reason. Naturally, when i got deeper into the hookah world myself, I simply had to have one, no questions asked. I ordered a small phunnel from HC a couple of weeks ago, since I usually only have a 1-2 hour window at a time to smoke, and I am usually smoking alone. When this "small" phunnel came in, I was dumbfounded. The small holds entirely too much, and my first few sessions wasted so much shisha. I have actually gone back to my Mya bowl because it usually hits the sweet spot as far as session timing goes.

Eric and IV are saints, plain and simple. My prayers have been answered in spades. Thank both of you for doing this.

And, for good measure, Mini-Phunnel WOO!

Yeah, I have heard that, but I have a bunch of flavors I've never tried before, so I like to switch out flavors in search of the best one. Once my Tangiers comes in, I'll end up keeping a phunnel loaded with it, and use the Mya for everything else until the mini-phunnel comes in.

I am super pumped to get a mini phunnel. Although I usually solo smoke, my sessions last until the shisha burns out.
