Hey guys,

I shot 2 short videos, one for normal classic riffle pass, and other is Luke Jermey's handling of the classic, which I applied to the riffle.

The normal riffle is something I've been just playing with, I gotta admit that I'm never got seriously into it, its just something that I've been doing with the deck in the past years, that's why you might see some flashes especially at the get-ready which isn't smooth. Luke Jermey's pass is my favorite move at the moment, been practicing it for a few days, its not smoothen out yet, but its coming.

No music, so the sound can be judged.

Feras,

Yu got the speed somehow but its not really about speed at least for me. The sound though subtle is quite important as well. If it were a real riffle ...you wold hear one continuous swoosh! With the pass you did there is an initial "chiick" before the swoosh.... Am I making sense here? As far as passes are concerned I have never been big on an open looking pass. I was never fooled by it both as a layman and as a magician. I mean no disrespect for it as I to have worked on my pass for over 15 years. It was only in recent years that I found the secret. The real secret. Erhaps try adding a squaring motion on the short ends as well and do the pass as you do it. The second vieo combined with the squaring motion I just mentioned might help. If we are to create smoke using the riffle...might as well make the sound realistic. The pass you did was ok but the sudden jerk would make anyone think that a move was done. If a color change is the goal.... I see other methods that are more economical and amazing at the same time. For a "face down" control... I would do a pass.... Still misdirecting and still connecting with my audience. The pass is just a tool and never the highlight unless it is used in a cavorting aces type routine.

You have the move pretty good...Perhaps work on using some motivated covers.

best to you

Boss ( honored to get your feedback! ), you nailed it excatly.

Riffling the back is never natural to me, and I sure know that the sound I did was loud, which is something I'm working on at the moment.

I'm yet to use classic pass as a control for laymen, I go with other ways, however, the main reason I practice the pass is for Cavorting Aces, which is a routine I love.

So, I use the pass as a color change. Pass as a control, I'd go with Duffie's Riffle Pass ( riffles the front ), or an Eilliot kind of a pass, or a version of the Hermann.

Thanks for the feedback Boss, definatly will go into consideration.

Feras I can show you a couple of passes that I do. Do you have Skype? Pm me and we can session via web cam. I will see if I still have my old files on my pass.

Regards!

Yeah, check mine too.

Anyways, I never ever use the Riffle Pass. I never do it with a riffle. I like to do it completely invisibly.
