I want to learn several forms of the pass (until I find one that my tiny hands can do) and several false shuffles. Basically, I want to be in control of my deck and no one else realize it. Any really good card sleight dvds that would help?

You might want to check out Richard Kaufman's Basic Card Technique. After you get through that, check out his other video, On the Pass. It has a lot of information on the pass.

If you wouldn't mind a book, check out Royal Road. It has all the basic techniques and a few different passes.

After you kinda learn the pass from a written source or a fellow magician I urge you to get Ken Krenzel's VHS only tape (it's kinda cheap too)called The Pass.

This tape helped my pass an incredible amount, and Mr. Krenzel is one of the world's leading experts on the pass. Speed is not the most vital aspect of this sleight, but in his heyday Mr Krenzel could do 120 classic passes per minute(do not learn the pass this way, I'm just mentioning an interesting fact is all).

If you are new to magic I don't feel that you should be obsessed with the pass. Concentrate on other things first. I spent about a year learning sleights and card magic before I started to concentrate on passes and even then I started with the Hermann turnover pass.

You may also want ninja 1 from the un-named site. It is very good and has some good pass covers and the teaching is very comprehensive. You also get a full routine and some ace tricks. Also pick up ninja two for some more good stuff.

Daryl does not cover the pass, as he really doesn't use one. He does teach the LePaul spread pass however.
