Default Is there a better method?

I smoke a good bit of Al-Waha and some of my Layalina is 'leafy' too, I've read that I need to break up the leaves for better airflow and whatnot but in the case of Waha - where almost every piece seems to be a decent sized leaf, is there an alternative to just using my hands?

And to the 'use other brands' response I'm sure I might get, I use Havana, HH, Nahkla, Layalina and Al-Waha...Waha just has some of my favorite flavors.

Thanks.

Pack the bowl like you would normally, then just use your foil poker, tooth pick or whatever, and bowl your holes straight through the tobacco down to the bottom of the bowl. This should create a good amount of airflow.

Remember to blow back thru the base of the bowl when you have punched the holes in your foil too (if using an egyptian bowl, suck for a phunnel)

Why do you suck for a phunnel?

honestly i prefer my tabacco leafy... It takes less to fill a bowl and it burns more evenly than something like al fakier or havana...
