I would help, but I see how impatient you are. Give it more than an hour before complaining. Actually, give it more than a day. Most people aren't on here within 10 minutes of waking up. Also, if you really wanted the advice, you'd have done a search for it.

I thought the correct theoretical term for the suppposedly called 'Muscle pass' was called the 'Palm Proper'. Well... From what I can understand...

I don't like that tutorial, it doesn't help.

Go to www.coinvanish.com for a guide on muscle passing. You need to visit the foundations section, which requires you to name a certain coin concealment for a password (to verify that you're a real coin magician). That's where I learned it.

Also, no tips or advice will change the amount of practice you have to put into to this move. It will take a while, believe me. I'd suggest making sure you are able to classic palm a coin perfectly before trying to muscle pass. I think that's how I learned so quickly, because I use to just palm coins wherever I went.

Get a poker chip and try to learn with that. It's bigger, lighter, and easier. You'll get the move down quicker and then you can use a half.

The move is literally brute practice no amount of advice will help you do the move better. So this is advice to anyone doing the move:

Get a good sized coin probably an eisenhower or morgan and start on that then work down to a half. The size of a larger coin help you establish the proper position and muscles. Also make sure your thumb does not curve over your palm.

I think he is talking about the sac. dollars. Kennedy Halves are the easiest for me to do the muscle pass with.
