Hi. I would like to know what's your favorite control or which control you use most. My favorite ones are the Center Steal Control by SW Erdnase and redone by Jason England, and Chad Nelson's Spread Pass. Edit: Oh, and I also use the clipshift.

Wow! I was waiting for a thread like this. It's a really hard decision as I love many, but the one's I use the most are the cull or the Nowhere pass.

I enjoy using the bluff pass, or any flourish that would bring the card to the top. I don't have any favorites; I use any one that accomplishes what I need for that routine.

Never really bothered learning other controls. Just know the classic pass, and a double undercut. Never been called out on it.
 
double undercut, then riffle shuffle. Never been caught out on it, so if it ain't broke why fix it! It is simple so I can talk and not look at my hands whilst doing it, which generally means no one else is either! Also, the riffle shuffle means its very easy to add a couple of cards above the chosen one if you need to for the trick. I have a a couple of tricks where the card needs to be second from the top. If anything, this makes the shuffle more convincing, because even if the spectator thinks the cuts brought the card to the top, then seeing extra cards falling on top it if makes them think there is no way you've controlled it.

I used to like using the hindu shuffle control occasionally, but it's a shuffle that looks odd to most people, so arouses more suspicion than others.

Out of these. one of the easiest and most deceptive is the peek control.
