Very good.
I wouldn't riffle the cards before doing the pass though because you're doing a riffle pass, and it looks weird (riffling the cards twice)
Now use it in the context of a trick!

Please don't ask for feedback on your pass when you know it's so good. :)

It is a real nice pass. I agree with Daniel that it is more of a riffle pass than a classic pass. As for the riffle pass Chad Nelson actually recommends a few riffles prior to the pass to contition the audience that it is a natural move for you. Good work though. I doubt youll ever get called out on it from a spectator...and that's the ultimate goal anyways. As Daniel says...lets see it in a routine! That thing is too good to waste in a demo!

thanks for all the positive comments everyone! one thing ive noticed is that my right hand ring finger extends and becomes really straight during the pass so thats something i need to work on for sure

Not bad at all. You have the technique down solid, however, a few things I noticed.

1. Right before you execute the pass, you abruptly move the left side of the deck from the base of the thumb up along your thumb crotch - this is a dead tell that something is about to happen. The movement has no real justification, you're not bringing the deck to fingertips or letting it settle into your palm, but it just sort of 'jerks' up and down in your hand. I would try beginning the pass with the deck high in your thumb crotch.

2. There is a build-up of tension right before you execute the pass. The sudden up and down movement of your hands, while it helps to cover the actual mechanics of the pass, is an abnormal rhythm that suggests deception. I may be, however, reading too much into this. There is no trick going on, so we are out of context, but I would try to aim for a softer pass. The most beautiful, invisible passes I've ever witnessed have always had a soft, gentle, almost automatic quality to them.

Other than that, well done.

Cheers
Ted
