I think Kostya Kimlat has a booklet on it.

And when he did it, it looked great.

Yes? Interesting... Do you have the title of the booklet?

Aaron Shields has a book(let) entitled "dribble block pass" which is a nice work on this move.

Just lower the lower half pinching its lower right corner and dribble off the upper cards on it. That's all. I think it the easiest Pass.

Kostya's lecture notes are 'Card Work' and 'A Lecture Collection' but off hand I don't think the dribble pass is explain in there or in his lecture dvd which was filmed at the internation magic convention. Drop Kostya an email, he's such a nice guy and I'm sure he'll help were he can,

The notes that Kostya was selling at his lectures were by Aaron Shields. I'm pretty sure the dribble pass that you saw Kostya perform was the block dribble pass by Aaron Shields.

My vote goes to Aaron Shield's block dribble pass.

Of course, the standard version works just as well. Just make sure that you dribble the cards as soon as possible, otherwise it will look funny (it'll look like you dropped half the deck, then dribbled on top of those).

Giobbi suggests you give your right hand (left in my case) the command' dribble' just before its packet passes above the original top packet. This helps to ensure a really smooth illusion.

Our friends at Penguin just released a tutorial (instant DL) from Luke Jermay on the dribble pass + Cavorting Aces.

When we were sessioning with Kostya Kimlats a couple years back, he used the Dribble pass and taught me it, however, he gave full credit to Aaron Shields, so I got that manuscript ASAP, and love it!

Just to be realistic, learing a pass is certainly not a matter of weeks.

Not a matter of weeks, not a matter of months, not a matter of years. In my performances, I use Passes which I am not still satisfied. Maybe it is wiser to use an unsatisfied Pass fitting and covering it in context of the act than perfecting it spending 40 years.

If it is your hobby to practice Passes, I wish you enjoy it.

Well it depends. If you've already mastered the classic pass, all the classic pass variants can be learned quite quickly, perhaps in weeks time.

However, mastering the classic pass will definitely take a good chunk of time. The amount of time will depend on the individual's level of natural dexterity and talent.

When have you mastered a pass? Only when you can do it while everybody is burning your hands and get away with it - and everybody swears that you have not moved your hands a bit.

If you do move your hands and need to use a lot of misdirections, then you might as well employ a sleight like the Midnight Shift.

But as kato-san pointed out, if you enjoy practicing the pass . . . please feel free to go ahead.

BTW, I wonder how many passes can the average magician do in one minute. I read that Paul LePaul was doing over 120.

Yeah, but I think he was using the metric system. Smile

You lost me there as well mate, maybe it was bad joke?
By the way Penguin got trailer for Luke's Dribble Pass Tutorial, I think he need to learn it aswell.

I might dowmload it, purely for the reason that he said; 'It's very easy to learn'. I must be a lost cause,

Justin Hingham has a great dribble pass handling in the book 'Arcardia', I've used it for years. The guy had terrific touches on all sorts of moves, I don't know how I don't hear his name more often.

Justin actually pointed out to me years ago that one could use the dribble pass to control cards with the pack face-up and it would fly right by people...he was right as could be. No one pays attention to the top card changing if handled freely and no attention it brought to it. I love using it in this fashion.
