A breather crimp totally eliminates the need for a pass (spec cuts, I cut, done), and allows a quick riffle shuffle after the two cuts. I haven't used a pass in a long time.
Actually when I use it I use it with a breather crimp. Spec cuts, spec doesn't see me cutting, done.
well your using it the way I'd think people would but most use it to control a card, and then immediately show it's on top.
He is not referring to a control to immediate reveal. Just a control. Where you go from there is your option. I think immediate reveal for a single card is a wasted use for a pass. There are tons of efficient single card controls. If a pass is your most deceptive technique, then by all means use it as such. I just find that most people will master one of the many single card controls before they master a pass.
If by most people you mean most youtube magicians then... yeah.
I'm beginning to agree. I think the more appropriate question might be, "Does anyone use a pass in and ACR and then immediately reveal?"
