Hi, I have been using the Bob Burton magic method, where you put it on the ground and transform...my record...i think 1.89 ya it is horrible.

Ok so I have been trying the method without regripping, i am good, but when i get to the End where you pull the one tile over, then the 2 out and you are done, and when i am pulling the tile out, like pulling on the one, but it is connected to the other one to flip them both out and then it is done, when i pull it out, sometimes the other tile is placed weirdly and it won't pull out, i have to go back and flatten it and make it good, and then it pulls out, i have an orange magic, the youtube guys who do this have black magics and it seems like it works perfect for them.

is it my magic? or my method or a trick i dont know?

I've had one of each (orange and black) and if anything, the black is tighter than the orange.

Now, the method you are talking about, I use as well. When I'm finishing those moves I shift my ring and pinky fingers on my right hand (which is doing the 6 flip transformation) and flatten the tile that is having problems.

Hope this helps. I can make a video if you need more help.
