To be slightly more specific, it's in the Foundations section of the site. You need to answer a simple question to get in, but Dan's description of the move is excellent.

Cheers,

Cy.

According to John Cornelius, the record is a Russian Magician who got it down in under five minutes.

So where does one find the instructions?

I do not know of anywhere in print that you can find it, not to say that you can't... I'm sure you can. I learned from my mentor, but also, Johnny Ace Palmer has a video that he explains it on- Trilogy of Magic Volume 2. The video is by MagicSmith.

The original write up is in Buckley's "Principles and Deceptions". I wrote my thoughts down in my lecture notes "Sleightly Strange" from a few years ago. I'm not sure you could learn it from scratch from my notes but if you already know where you are headed they are good.

Personally it took me many months to learn the move. But I only had Buckley's book to go from. Nobody local to me could do the move. When you learn be sure to go slow. You don't want to wear the skin off of your hand. It is easy to do and very painful.

Hope that helps.

For some people learning it with their non dominant hand comes easier. I learned the roll out with my left hand before I learned it with my "dominant" right hand.

I have fun doing it with both hands(at the same time) as part of an "explanation" during a copper silver routine.

Enjoy.

It took me about a month to get it down good.

I can vouch for Dan Strange's use of the Muscle Pass, it's a thing of beauty. But it's not the move that makes it good, it's the routine; not your standard coin falls up presentation.

It took me a year to work up the Muscle Pass, I never get it over 6-8 inches, but that is plenty. They'll remember it going a lot higher.

I'm still practicing. hey mars, a hint, a lot of magicians after executing the muscle pass, and catching the coin, they raise their hand higher, and it really does give the effect of the coin jumping even higher.

Don't raise the catching hand, drop the bottom hand. Any visible movement of either hand takes away from the illusion. It's good to just freeze totally, have the coin jump, stay frozen for a beat, then go on. Gives them a second to appreciate what just happened.
