It is truly a magical move. Watching a coin floating up from one hand to another is impossible. Especially if you catch it at the point it is just hitting the top of the arc. It slows down and just stops at your other hand. No matter what other people are doing, show your magic. We are magicians and we perform magic. It's just that simple.

I'm sure all us magicians have a reason to do the style and type of magic that we do. It is up to all of us to be responsible for what type of magic we perform.

I can see where the Mighty Fool is coming from and I would like to see his routine. Although I'm not a fan of challenging my audience, in the right hands it can be powerful magic.

Practice this move a lot and remember in the eyes of the spectator, it's magic.

I never use it, that is of course because I can't do it.
In loving memory of Hughie Thomasson 1952-2007.

You brought something beautiful to this world, you touched my heart, my soul and my life. You will be greatly missed.

Until we meet again “my old friend”.

I use the muscle pass in my ring and ribbon routine... I make the ring fall up. And I agree with everyone who said that exposing this move (or any other move for that matter) is just plain wrong!

Last week I was at a huge convention (23,000 attendees) in Dallas. I had the pleasure of catching 7 different magicians performing on the trade show floor. One of the best - and most gracious - was Chad Long. Let me tell you, he did one mean muscle pass as part of a longer coin routine. The MP looked like gravity had been turned off, and Chad worked a comment about gravity into his patter. It floored all the specs, as did the entire routine. I chatted with Chad between performances. He is a fine, fine gentleman.

I would just like to ask where you can learn the muscle pass?

Dan Watkins has a video of the muscle pass on his website I believe.

Look in the video section under Misc

Thanks fizbin for the information. Now I remember, I think it's what he calls "the coin that falls up".

What's easier to do an MP on, a coin or a poker chip? Or does it depend on whichever you're comfortable with?

I saw Chad doing this a while back with a very lightweight thin coin that will go much higher than a regular half-dollar. I got a couple of lighter coins and they go to impressive heights, but I find them hard to fit into my regular coin routines.

For a half dollar I can getv two feet. And with a dollar, I can get about a foot and a half.

Seems to me sometimes that a heavy coin looks better b/c it shoots slower and doesn't spin as much. Anyone else?

I love passing dollar size coins just for that slow motion effect. It sells the illusion so much more.

I like to start all my "coins across" routines with the muscle pass.

I love doing the muscle pass as well. I lived in the Dominican Republic for a while and used a half peso, same size as a half dollar, for it, and all the people thought that the coin was bewitched from the routine I used.

I tend to use it as a utility rather than the coin falls up. So I use a couple of Shoots productions and also muscle pass to topit and top pocket. It's a great secret move because it looks as though nothing happened, the coin travels fast with no movement. Paul
