I use a clay extruder. I have the green one that is made by Makins. You can also do other cool things with it as well.

I don't know what makes it so hard for me, but I find the bc rope the hardest bc technique to do. Others seem to whip it out w/o issue, but mine always look craptastic! icon_redface.gif
