For vortex I use three rings of holes, and add additional holes on spots where no holes are.

Normal bowl, either a 3 ring/spiral, or just random holes.

depends on what im smoking.. but for the most part its a three ring pattern.

The size of the holes solely depends on what im smoking.

I usually use a funnel bowl with 3 ring small hole pattern with the foil as tight as possible and taped down with electrical tape to make sure there is enough airflow to the middle hole.

Like many here have said, I gauge the holes based on the tobacco, quantity, and even pipe/bowl combos, but the one I've done the most is a basic egyptian bowl, always double foil, always lots of little holes in the middle going out to a few larger holes around the outside. It's my standard, haha. Never fails.

If I'm smoking tangiers, I'm using my phunnel and I poke my holes the way Eric pokes his holes using an oyster fork poking all the way down.

If I'm smoking (insert wet tobacco), I'm using my vortex bowl and I do a spaced out 3 ring hole pattern around the bowl. I say spaced out because too many holes from my personal experience just gets more air flow into the bowl and not enough flavor.

If I'm using my egyptian, I poke holes everywhere on the foil.
