Re: In regards to packing Flake tobacco...

folding and stuffing I always get the center to burn and the sides unburnt, pushing the sides in with the pointee part of the check tool helps. I've tried the musketball with mix results.
dublinthedane methods works well with dense flakes like IF and UF , now fully rubbed out worths well, espically with coins like escudo or bulleyes, to me it basicly like when you pour a splash of cold water or ice cubes into a good scotch it opens it up
gonna go back to rubbing flakes out, I wanna enjoy my flakes, not turn it into work

The "musketball" generally goes under the "air pocket method".

Re: In regards to packing Flake tobacco...

I usually fold it over in half then fold that over again. It strands up as you fold it and makes kind of a cubic birds nest when stuffed into the bowl. Seems to work well.

I've rubbed it out a couple times but usually just folding it over works, depending on how most. If it's really moist I'll roll the ball around in my fingers lightly just to get rid of any clumps.

I love flake and it's pretty much all I smoke.

Just to expand on that a bit, if the flake is too dry it crumbles instead of wadding up, so it winds up being rubbed out basically. This is not a bad thing. I like them on the borderline of being that dry. Flakes that are a bit moist seem to smoke better than do loose cuts with a similar moisture content, though. I don't mind Erinmore or Dunhill Flake straight out the tin, for example. Not many tobaccos that can't use a little drying time.
