I saw a video of someone easily gliding his m slice. Mine locks up, and I'm not even really sure which fingers to use for that. Any suggestions or help?

The way I do it is with my right ring finger, I push up from the bottom. It feels very awkward at first, but it gets faster and faster the more you use it.

EDIT: I thought he was talking specifically about the "M" move...

For M', use your ring finger to push from DB to DF. For M2, I double flick with my right ring and middle finger. I do the U moves with my left hand to make things more fluid. If you use your right hand for your U2, you should do M slice moves with your left hand. It's best not do to U2 and M2 with the same hand.

Really the only way to be able to do h perms or z perms fast is to:

1. M2' doubleflick. Basically you take your right ring finger and put it on the BD sticker, and push up, and carry through with that motion with your right index. It should be one swift motion, as opposed to two separate finger motions.

2. Make sure you are doing M' and M2' from the bottom with your right finger(s) and doing your U layer work with your left. You can however, do the opposite, where you do M work with your left and U with your right, but I think M2s are more important, and easier to do with your right. Your choice though.

He said he locks up so his cube might be hindering him, what cube do you use?
Some cubes have much easier M slices than others.

I agree. The Fangshi V2's M slices are the best I've seen. They destroy the Zhanchi. I'm not sure if you can say that M slices corner cut, but if they do, then the Fangshi M slices corner cut perfectly.
Definitely agree that the fangshi's M slices are incredible. And I feel like my AoLong Ms are better than the zhanchi's as well. Unfortunately I still rank both the Aolong and zhanchi above the fangshi :(

The Shuangren 2 M slice is better than Aolong.
Another thing about this for the people who like 55mm cubes (like me): the slices on the mini ShuangRen are the same size as slices on standard 57mm cubes, whereas on the mini AoLong the slices are smaller and harder to use. Personally, I prefer to use my ShuangRen for Roux and my AoLong for CFOP.
