What are you trying to learn exactly?
Anything related to undercover use of the Muscle Pass I'd recommend Fujii Akira's work.

That's me doing Akira's "Jet Coin" routine using the MP:

You might also research methods of secret transfer between hands that do not require a muscle pass

Nicky,
In addition to the resources you mention, I would also look into Charlie Justice's DVD "Covert Coins" as he has some applications on the Muscle Pass. I also have some work on it as a secret changeover that's based primarily off of Shoot's work. Justice's work and Shoot's work also have similarities in their execution as I recall.

Also try to track down John Cornelius 'The Coin that Falls Up'. I think it was on the first Classic Renditions DVD/VHS with Michael Ammar.

Some nice tips for doing the move openly, that will translate into being a covert move.

Hope all is well my friend, and when you coming out with your next magic book, it's been a while now. I know you've come up with a lot of new magic to share with us. Smile

I had troubles getting a high (as in up and down) MP until I discovered the Fingertip Muscle Pass that Kainoa Harbottle teaches. He originally had a thrown together video but he recently released this one with Work by Colin McNamara too - https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic-......le-pass/

He passes the coins straight across and claims they are "magnetic" Smile I find it much more "controllable" than a standard MP (especially when it comes to aim). It could easily be adapted into a coins across. My favorite use for it is ditching a coin into a TKO 2.0.

As for standard MP sources, I have seen (other than the stuff already mentioned above by others) are - "Anti-Gravity Coin Muscle Pass" by Kris Nevling and "The Muscle Pass Starring Jay Noblezada" both are fairly basic though and probably stuff you already know if you have been at this 15 years Smile (but I will mention them for anyone who stumbles on this thread and is looking for beginner stuff)

I will second the Covert Coins DVD by Charlie Justice. It's got lots of quality stuff.

His fingertip de-shell is nice.

Hey Marion,
I'll send you a PM. As for some new magic, there are eNotes that I recently completed and hopefully will be released in the very near future. Lots of good coin magic in there as well as a card trick too.

DafedasB uses the MP as a transfer in several routines on his KATA DVD.

Once you have the coin moving a couple of inches with a dollar size coin (for most folks this works better with a large coin), I recommend you look into "Feng shui" coins that you get on eBay for a couple of bucks. These are slightly larger in diameter than a dollar coin, but super thin and light weight. They really pop with a muscle pass. I get four inches if Im lucky with a dollar, but the Feng shui coins hop a foot or more easily.

The Buckley book has the sleight as a secret transfer.
A related technique - Dan Sylvester's Inertial Transfer - may also serve your use case.

I've never managed to be able to master the Muscle Pass, and use Sylvester's wonderful Inertial Transfer for all invisible chicanery of that sort. it's an incredible, versatile tool well worth learning.
