"I get the biggest reactions from THIS card trick" -Rick Lax

Call me evil, but I love the kind of magic that makes people lose sleep. Wondering if just MAYBE it was possible to REALLY do what I did.

It's not the over-the-top magic that does it.. It's the stuff that lives at the EDGES of what's believable. That's where (in my humble opinion) the most delicious magic happens.

Rick Lax's Light Speed is genius, because of how deviously close it is to being possible. It's the kind of trick that drives spectators insane. The best part is when they try to do it themselves :)

The hand is quicker than the eye.. we've all heard it, but now you can PROVE it. And their eyes don't stand a chance!

Not as advertised Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2015
This is not a bad trick but it is not truly represented in the advertisement video. It is a two-part trick, and is more involved the video leads you to believe. That is not necessarily bad, if you want to do a longer trick, but it would be nice if the vid was a little more representative of the trick itself.

I was disappointed, but you may not be. I have also bought To Do Voodoo from Rick, and I thought is was pretty bad. On the other hand, Happy Travels was good. So it is hit and miss with him, I suppose.

Caveat emptor.

Not the trick as you see in the video Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2015
For the cost this is a decent trick. In watching the explanation there is more to the presentation. The ad shows part two of the trick.
I say this just to be ware of what you may expect verses what you will be getting.
This is why the 3 star review.
The trick is still effective and the explanation is clear.
Not a bad trick to have for an impromptu trick with a borrowed deck.

Very Misleading Video Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 24th, 2015
The video for the act is a bit misleading as there are actually two parts to this trick - the video only shows the second part. So you cannot just walk up to somebody and say, "Name a card" and you pluck it out, you have to do the first part of the trick first. In my opinion, the first part of the trick deteriorates the entire trick, although it is necessary for the trick to work properly.

Other than that, the trick is absolutely brilliant. The way the moves work, the sleight, and the actual performance looks very clean after about an hour of practice.

I would have rated 5 stars if the video wasn't misleading. Be aware that the video doesn't show it all.

Well done, but not quite fair Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2015
Clever and well taught, but it’s not the miracle it appears to be in the video, because there’s a substantial amount of preamble between you and the mark before you’re able to do the trick. Alas, I’ll keep dreaming!

Great trick but bad trailer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2015
I don't understand why the trailers need to be so misleading.

This is a great trick and I would have bought it if the trailer just showed what happened. It's a bit misleading because there is other stuff happening that you don't see.

Apart from this great trick and very amusing and bold method. I'll use it

Going straight into my act Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2015
I am a big fan of Ricks work and this is another brilliant bit of magic. Light Speed is a 2 phase effect with the first phase not only impressing the audience but also completely setting up the second phase which you can proceed to have much fun with as all the work is done! I thought I had an idea of what was going on from the trailer but was pleased to find that in this case the method was far better and way more simple than I was expecting! It requires no forcing or duplicates and can indeed be done completely impromptu with a borrowed deck of cards. Rick explains everything in great detail and as always with P3 the quality of the video production is excellent. This is one of those tricks that requires minimal to no practice (depending on your skill level) and yet makes you look like you have been practicing for years! So pleased I purchased this and have already had much fun with it today!

Fantastic Light Speed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2015
Wow talk about a no gimmack jaw dropping effect. Rick as always goes over every detail in this teaching. I bought it because I thought I would just learn but never be able to perform it. I was wrong. Not only did I learn how it was done but I'm able to performe it. Just buy it you will use it. Rick if you read this thank you for your patient training. You make learning magic fun and reLAXed. Sure you've seen that a lot--- sorry. But thank you. Enjoy everyone.

Promo video a bit misleading Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 27th, 2015
The effect itself is good, but the video demonstrating the trick you see before you purchase it leaves out an important piece of the handling. I would not have purchased it had I seen the full effect as performed and not the edited version for the promotional video.

This is not to say that the trick is bad, and it may work for many people, but I was expecting what was presented in the promotional video and the actual trick you perform is not is not what is in the promotional video as there are important handling pieces missing that greatly, in my opinion, changes the overall effect.

Great Impact, Will Take Some Practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2015
I rarely write a review right after buying an effect. But this one is very cool. When I watched the video, I thought it would require complex slights or deck memorization. That is not the case. The trick actually involves steps with two different effects. This is not shown in the video, so it is slightly misleading. But both effects are excellent and are not THAT complex. It will take practice, but not an overwhelming amount.

A nice little gem Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2015
I fell into the world of magic and for the last few years I have been doing nothing but studying. With my new utility belt of tricks and mentalism, I found light speed. This is a great piece to have in your arsenal.

I tested it and it worked very well. I even challenged others to do it and it kept them laughing and entertained for a good while after. You can really makes this your own.

Thank you for sharing
