Yeah, it restricts the amount of air and increases the speed of the air hitting the cherry, you do the same thing with a tamper. If you’re ember is starting to die out this can help get it going again. You want to be careful because this can overheat a bowl quickly, with a tamper you can also control the direction of the ember as well as the size of it.

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)
