chris mentioned something about mini phunnels hitting the market again.. is this true? is it going to be another bulk thing like indianvillager did back in the day?
[/quote]

No no, Eric has said he *may* actually release the Mini phunnel for retail. Meaning vendors would get them and they'd sell for only ~$15. The only problem is he said he'd knock out the Large Phunnel retail-wise, only keeping it for his lounge use and probably selling them at the lounge as well. So basically the Mini and Large would reverse roles. I don't see many people getting upset about no longer being able to buy a Large from a vendor, though. :P

It's also worth noting that Eric said he has improved upon the Mini Phunnel's design, making it, in his opinion, smoke better than previous ones.

I hope mini phunnels go retail. Eric knows there is a market for them.. Would be a smart move IMO

Yeah I'm not sure why he stopped producing them in the first place. I'm sure there was a reason.

He never produced them for retail sale. Only the few group buys he's done over the past few years. He doesn't make them regularly for retail because he feels it doesn't smoke well enough (I however think it smokes great, Wade agrees with me). Hopefully his new design will make them smoke well enough for him to be satisfied. I will admit the Small smokes better, but it's such a miniscule difference. I'd rather use the Mini and save on tobacco AND coals.

I think the major difference is just ease of use, as heat management is more flexible on the small, but it is certainly worth the savings.

Ive kinda changed my tune recently. Yes they smoke decent enough, But I like my new small better then my mini's. Will I be selling my minis....HELL NO. But will I use them all the time probably not. As of right now the only way to get mini's is to get one from a group buy or shell out the 50$+ for one.

So i just started smoking Tang again, and I think I need some help.....

About halfway through a 250 of lucid orange soda and i've only have one reasonably successful bowl. Always ends up super harsh with very little smoke. I pack the proper method, but using a vortex instead (i just prefer my vortex...plus my last phunnel just broke).

However, first bowl in with some Indian summer, and all seems to be good, except the smoke quality. I've got plenty of quantity, but it's still pretty a bit wispy and smoke like not cloud like. I'm using 3 ccn's packed to the top of a vortex, lightly touching the foil or just under the foil. what gives?

I strongly advise getting a Tangiers phunnel bowl. But if you insist on using the Vortex, there's only one man I know on here who can help you out- Allstar. He once did a video on how to pack Tangiers in a Vortex. I'll direct him to this thread. Still though, I think you'd end up having a much better experience with a legit phunnel bowl.

Agreed but it also sounds like you are underpacking the bowl.

OK so the vortex master is here and I will hook you up. Ok this is what you do.
1. Pack that bowl tight up to the holes,
2. then light and fluffy at an angle from the holes to the outside edge of the bowl.
3. Double check the holes make sure they aren't blocked.
4. Use 3 CCN coals
5. Hole pattern will be about 3 circles, make sure to poke all the way through to the bottom of the bowl.

It will take a little bit to start about 3-5 minutes. You will be going strong.

Really all of the Tangiers flavors are good. Those listed above are just the ones that I like the best personally. Everyone's different and will end up having different favorite flavors.

Kashmir anything....simply put, kashmir is awesome....(best though is K Guava)
Orange Soda (awesome, I really do wonder what he uses to get that carbonation like feel to it)
Sevilla Orange (definitely great....)
Welsh Cream (I find it really good with coffee in the base....awesome!)
Mimon
New Lime/New Lemon Lime
Horchata
Pomegranate....best pomegranate I've ever had...tastes like the real thing.
