It's less likely to chip by drilling from both ends of each piece but getting the holes to line up in the middle requires careful and accurate drilling.

My Razan and one of my Narbish hoses have been bored out to ~13/32" at the thinnest point. IMO the improvement is very noticeable.
Strongly agree. The restriction is in the mouth tips. If you remove the mouth piece from a nammor or narbish and take a pull from just the handle, you will see a big increase in air flow.
