Default Big holes, small holes?

Hey ive really been confused, u usually poke a spiral from in outward with a toothpick and i get reasonably good smoke but my brother uses a hypodermic needle to poke many MANY little holes and one deep (slightly bigger) one on the outer part of the bowl for air flow. He says he gets good smoke but i never do.
What do you think

I use whatever I can find...needles, toothpicks, tong pokers, pens, screw drivers.....I never noticed too much of a difference as long as about the same amount of surface area of the foil has been poked through.

I swear by needle holes. I feel that the smaller holes prevents the chunks of coal and ash from getting down into the tobacco which can lead to some rather unpleasant flavoring. Usually i just take the needle and go to town, poking a butt ton of holes. it still allows for good airflow, maintains a good amount of heat, but protects the tobacco from debris.

and as we should all know by now, ALWAYS USE PROTECTION.
