    Performing Passes VS Controls

    How often do you perform a pass? I mainly use controls to get the card in the position it needs to be. Occasionally, I'll do a pass, but only if I'm performing for a single spectator. And yes, I'm aware that this question's answer depends entirely on the situation. But when the situation allows...

    Controls as routines

    Ok i am not completely new to magic, Ive been doing it for about 2 years and practice constantly. What I like to do with my friends who I perform magic too daily is just do a control and then show them that I moved the card(s) without them noticing (thats on a good day). Things like the classic...

    Card Controls

    I’m tired of always using the same controls and forces, because I feel that eventually lay people will pick up on what I’m doing. Does anyone have any better controls, forces or anything?

    Where can I learn this control?

    I'm looking to find where I can learn a particular control which allows you to move and reverse (so it faces upwards) the card to the 2nd position, from a spread cull. I can provide links to it being done if necessary, but I have seen performers such as Franco Pascali, Tony Chang and others do...

    Ideas to change up my ACR?

    Hiya! As weird as it is, I've never really done an ACR as I felt like it was too overused. That is until recently when I tested one out on someone using a few basic sleights I already knew. He freaked out and now I've started trying to expand the trick with more controls and whatnot. This is my...

    How to quickly uncrimp cards?

    So whenever I start using the decks a lot it naturally will create some crimps here and there, which is confusing whenever I want to use the crimp as a card control. So is there a quick way to uncrimp the cards so that after uncrimping the next crimp I do is the only one remaining? thx

    So many overhand shuffle techniques - The most deceptive?

    So I am getting a bit overwhelmed with all the different shuffle techniques and concepts and just want some opinions on which to use when and if there are just some shuffles that are better than others. So I am very comfortable with the Overhand in-jog shuffle, shuffle cards off, injog, shuffle...

    Original or Original Variation?

    Hello everyone, I have had a control in the works ever since January of 2014, but I just recently started refining it about a month ago. I hadn't seen it anywhere and still haven't to this day. However, a friend of mine brought it to my attention that an aspect of the control is similar to...
