  1. Hey guys.

    I'm interested to see what people might consider their "go-to control". Assuming a card is meant to be lost in the deck, but you actually need it on top, how would you normally do this?


  2. Orbit control. I do it all the time. I practiced it so much and now it is the only top control I do. I even have a method of orbiting to the second, third, and fourth positions from the top. What's yours?
  3. Clip shift. Done while talking to the person. they see me holding a packet... look at my eyes... look back... looks the same.. it's perfect
  4. my own cut control. It is almost looks like flourish but I don't know any flourishes.
  5. I use the
    Top Change as my go to control - Jaryn
  6. More often than not it is a pass.

    If they are really burning my hands then a cull.
  7. I most often use the turnover pass.
  8. A simple reverse pass works for me. I do it 99% of the time unless they are really burning my hands in which case I use the fan contol.
  9. A modified Bluff Pass...
  10. I use classic pass with misdirection help now, but I'm willing to learn side steal. Side steal is great, bacause it's pretty much invisible.
  11. I pretty much always default to the Bluff pass.
  12. Invisible pass is perfect for those situations. If my hands are being burned I can pull out the orbit control and I also somethimes just out-jog the selection and steal it with tenkai.
  13. The "pass" I like to use is le pauls pass
  14. Spreadpass, The centerdouble taught in tivo 2.0 and Miller cascade control
  15. i use my version of DMB control to control to the bottom. but to the top, probably the pass or orbit control :)
  16. wherever they keep their card keep a break and cut or shuffle
  17. 2nd is my own Nano control, 1st Herman pass which is very easy, no risk of dropping cards as I have with classic pass and I think it is invisible from all angles.
  18. I'm starting to use the cull much more often than before.
    Depends quite a bit on the trick itself though.
  19. More than often a classic pass for the top of the deck, and a cull for the bottom of the deck.
    However there are certain tricks I do which necessitate a specific control.
  20. Double undercut with another set of false cuts.
