Control By Tom Rose


Categories: , Tags: ,


In this download I will be teaching two of my favorite controls. The Swing Cut Control is my approach to swing cutting to a break. It is easy to do and incredibly fooling. I will also explain my handling of the Riffle Shuffle Control.

Both of these sophisticated methods to cut to a break are indistinguishable from the real move and I’ve spent years to make them look exactly as they should.

More than that I will be teaching several handlings of those moves along with practical uses of them. We will talk about how to get into breaks, how to handle them properly and how to use the controls in context to make them imperceptible.

“Tom’s new controls project is incredible. The core idea is something that everyone has tried, but the top guys abandon because it doesn’t look right and the lazy guys continue to fumble with (badly). Well, Tom has made that idea into a beautiful, soft deceptive control that I will be using immediately. You will not regret getting this” – Jack Tighe

“I’ve been at this now for 30 years, and I still sit at the feet of Tom Rose whenever I get the chance.” – Jeremy Griffith
