Default How manny holes are just right and how many are to much?

I am using the small mya bowl and I was just wondering how many holes are just right for it and if there is such thing as poking to many holes?
Anyone got thoughts on this?

This thread's title is either misleading or I have a dirty mind.

I've never done too many holes... but I'm sure there's such a thing...

Actually, probably not. Some people put coals right on the tobacco...
No foil = a hell of a lot of holes... or just 1 monster sized hole.

Just do three concentric rings of holes with three or four near the center. Works on every bowl for me. The actual number is trivial.

Ive been smoking from a mya bowl lately i dont think there is a exact amout i just punch away untill it looks cool but i think there is really no spacific anwser i guess we would need to know a bit more info like what coals and what shisha to give you a better idea. or just exparement cause if your a power smoker fewer may be better but if you smoke it like a fine cigar more holes. this is very opinated question with no right or wrong anwser i think.

I would tell you to do it the way I do because that's best and works for me, but that would be a damn lie in regards to working for you. There is no way to tell you what will be best for you. So don't even start to believe anyone telling you it's best for you in case they do. First you need to start with a system, just poke a lot of holes in circles, random, whatever. It doesn't really matter since this is your learning experience. Then you will, through experience, learn what pattern and hole density works best. You will find that you use different patterns based on the tobacco, bowl, packing, foil, coal type, coal activity, etc etc. So in short there is no correct answer. Just take some info from various posts here and give it a go. You will eventually find your way and it will work best for you. My pattern is a hell of a lot of holes. Sometimes in circles sometimes totally random.

Im not sure if this matters much, But with Hookah Hookah style tobacco that burns easily, i use lots of little holes, like holes with a pin. With Nakhla, a more heat tolerant tobacco, i use a toothpick and put an equal placement of holes. I just think if one spot looks like theres not enough holes, or if its uneven, i will even it out. I just try to keep it equal around the bowl, that way you get the best smoke possible and not only smoking half of the bowl, if thats even possible
