Default hole size?

ok so i have been trying to play around with hole size and dont know for sure if it has really helped or mattered much, i probably need to take and smoke the same tobacco and make substantially different holes to confirm deny it but i wanted to see what people have seemed to find them selves.

so larger or smaller holes give the tobacco more or less heat. smaller holes i can see giving less heat through the foil but also will let less heat out from under the foil and visa versa.

so what do you all think

i like smaller holes because less ash gets caught in the shisha and I like to smoke my bowls more than once.

hole size depends for me, when im using my km and the razan hose, i make average holes all around with 3 or 4 big holes in the middle because of all the extra air intake from the big guage stuff, and thats with a standard egyptian bowl.

with my qt just normal sized holes with some slightly bigger ones here and there. just blow through the bottom of the bowl after you poke holes and make sure its not too hard to blow through.

I punch my holes with a thumb tack. So, they are never bigger than the largest point of the tack. I like the small holes so it keeps the ash from falling into the bowl.

i always make enough holes so that the pull is not restricted, but i have tried to play with the hole size to "help" with heat management.

i never put big holes in the middle so that the heat/air gets sucked from the sides down to the bottom, not sure if it does any thing but my bowls get pretty evenly charred

i have honestly never noticed much of a flavor change from ash falling onto the shisha,

I do the same thing. I make a lot of small holes for good airflow and not the holes should not be to big else the ash comes in the shisha.
