Default hole depth...

When you guys are punching holes in your foil. Do you push all the way through the holes in your bowl? Why or why not?

Ofcourse this would not apply to bowls like phunnels...so I ask the phunnel smokers how deep do you make your holes? Just enough to penetrate the foil or all the way down to the bowl? Why or why not?

I poke my holes all the way down to the bottom in my crown micro. It may not do anything in a phunnel but I still feel like it opens up the tobacco more to be evenly heated, especially since I usually do semi to dense nakhla overpacks (so tobacco is pressed up against bottom of foil anyway).

Well if you poke to the bottom of the bowl it pulls tobacco up with it. So that's kinda pointless unless you've got nakhla

stop pushing it through when you can't go any further.

But simply poking the tip in just isn't quite as satisfying as thrusting your poker as deep as it'll go.

If you are using an egy, it's recommended in my mind. For a funnel or vortex, it's not really needed.

I never poke to the bottom on any bowl. For an egy I just blow through the bottom after packing to insure proper airflow. If I were to overpack an egy, I would poke through to the holes on the bottom though.
