I think that the classic pass is objectively the best control. It is fast and almost invisible with some practice, it has many applications, and is viable in all situations. If you have a good enough pass, you can do it when someone is staring at the deck, or preferably on the off beat, but if you do need to do something when someone is staring down the deck, the pass will not not fail you. It is also great when done with a face up card, that can really freak people out. It also has tons of variations to make it even better (I preffer the riffle pass). Plus you can do a classic pass false cut that looks INCREDIBLE and is super easy if you already know the pass. You just place a card on top, do the false cut (which just looks life you cut the deck) and the card is on top. I think that the pass is all around one of the best moves in card magic, and definitely my favorite card control.
