I've really given this a lot of thought. I perform in the magic shop I work at every day, so I have a great test group of laypeople and magicians that I can try new ideas on. I've noticed a peculiar thing regarding the muscle pass. I have done "the coin that falls up" billions of times (Thanks Mr. Cornelius!). People see how it's done, or they take a second and work out that you somehow "flick" it up, and yet they're amazed you can do it. They are amazed by your skills, and not because it's magic. I have also used it secretly, for transfers and ditches and click passes and the like. They don't even know it exists. I don't like performing it openly. I don't think it's a good trick by itself. Do you guys agree? I think it is BETTER used secretly, behind the scenes, purely as a sleight. In my opinion, doing it openly is just giving away one of the most powerful sleights you can use. I'm not going to do it as the coin that falls up any more. If they know you can launch a coin, they know that you can ditch it by launching it into a pocket somewhere. They also are excited by your skill- and then, your chances of getting any reaction of true astonishment or wonder will turn into reactions of "wow, he's good with his hands". Do you guys agree? What are your thoughts on this? Scott.
