Default Randalizer Design Question

Thinking about building a Randalizer. Why do most people drill holes along the entire length of the center tube? Wouldn't you get more hop greatness by having big holes at the far end so more beer has more contact time with the hops?

I put about 100 small holes on bottom 3rd of center tube. I wouldn't make the holes too big, they'll let leaf particles through.

How'd it work?

Wouldn't the beer coming out of the tube keep them out?
