    I've been smoking some PS Luxury Twist Flake as of late and am curious, how do you load it?

    I've been folding it, pulling it apart, and pushing it back with a quick roll between the fingers to rub it out a bit and sticking it into a pipe that will accommodate the size of this flake. How do YOU load the PSLTF?

    Grab a flake, roll it into submission, then cannonball it into the trash.

    You asked.

    I bought some last week...rapidly realizing I don't care for the topping.

    I prep it by saying "This will only hurt for a second." After that, it seems ready.


    I have probably the least dignified flake technique ever. Put it in and light it up is the usual first try. And LTF is not a fussy tobacco, so I never tried anything more complicated with it.

    Phew. Holding my arm up for a minute is tiring!

    Oh yeah...my technique is the same as for LTF.

    Thanks for choosing me, teach...

    I usually smoke it in a small 9Group 2-3) pipe. I'll fold in half once then roll it in the opposite direction...then just slip it into the bowl. A bit of rubbed-out "kindling" on top...add flame! One of my favorite tobaccos.
