Question Phunnel with mod help

Ok I've done a ton of research and looked at all the topics on phunnel bowls and holes and now I'm just confused. I have a small tangiers phunnel bowl with the glass mod. How should I poke the holes for the bowl? Thanks

if its normal tobacco you can prolly just get away with a lot of thumbtack sized holes around the edge and around the center too. you dont really need to worry about size, just tangiers...

if that doesnt work use it as a start and just kinda mess around here and there until you get something that you like.

For phunnel with mod I usually make toothpick sized holes, a circle on the outside edge then a smaller circle in the middle. Make sure you dont pack the shisha in to tight.

Thanks for all the help guys...I've gotten it to smoke great with AF but I tried Layalina and it tasted like @$$. Although I haven't gotten a good session with the Layalina...

Excellent! Thick smoke and plenty of flavor and the shisha cooks evenly! If there is too much heat I move the coal towards the center exposing the back row or two.

So much fuss about hole poking... All the hookah professionals (and with this i mean those whose job is preparing hookahs) poke random holes all round the bowl. Believe me if it doesnt taste good its deffenatetly no the hole pattern.
IMO : THERE ARE ONLY TWO TYPES OF HOLE PATTERNS

1ST ONE : Too many holes >> ash falls through and shisha gets cold air so it doesnt produce much smoke.
2ND ONE : Less holes than there should be >>>>> Shisha overheats even while not sucking on the hose, harsh smoke, small session lenght.

If "it tastes like @$$" like i read above its not the holes.

Cheers guys.

I agree with you shishaholicC but I was wondering how other people did it so it would help me in getting a good session ...Most of the hole patterns I used I just randomly did and I've had great sessions

The most important things IMO is underpack and manage your heat. I dont see how spending 1hour poking holes would help your session. It litterally takes me 3 secs to punch 8, at most 12, holes on the foil. And i get long flavourfull sessions out of a few grams. I laughed when i saw Cj's pic. I know you love this hobby and dont care how much time you spend (i love it too) but i cant see how it helps. All it might do is give you 3 minutes more smoke, nothing more nothing less.

Cheers

Honestly not a big deal. The nice thing is that the way exotica's flake that none of the ash goes down the holes. They are too small for it to fit in.

I just smoke AW California Dreams for like 2.5hrs using that hole pattern last night! It definitely works. Depending on your coals you may want to poke two of those sections one across from the other. That is what scalli used in his videos!
