I've always just grabbed the tobacco in me fingers and shoved it into the bowl. It has always served me well throughout my years of pipe smoking, (20ish). When I joined PSF 1.0 I started hearing of different methods and tried 1 or 2... meh. I went back to this method. Like Ruff said, it's a feel thing, I know when me pipe is packed right. Even flake; I pull it apart, crumble it a little and pack it the same way.

Same on the “feel”thing.That being said I tend to go with a loose pack as opposed to a hard pack. I also fully rub out my flakes and coins.Granted the smoke is somewhat shorter but I feel I get more flavor this way.

I'm going to have to pay attention to how I fill a pipe I never thought of it before.
