The GT Speedreader is a ground breaking new version of the classic Ted Lesley concept...specifically designed by a working pro for how performers and spectators REALLY look at cards. The SpeedReader system HIDES THE MARKS when you spread the deck and makes your readings truly FAST AND EFFICIENT.

The Big GT SpeedReader DIFFERENCE
Standard Marked Decks are marked in the upper LEFT corner (and lower right). The GT SpeedReader is marked in the exact OPPOSITE POSITION...at the upper RIGHT corner (and lower left). So as you the deck the exposed upper left section on the cards have no mark (where a sharp spectator might see it)...while the performer can easily read the mark at the lower left corner of the cards...where it's away from the spectator's view.

  • The SpeedReader Mark IS SPECTATOR SAFE
  • The GT SpeedReader Marks are EASIER to READ.
MORE SpeedReader ADVANTAGES:
  • Dealers Grip
  • Right Hand Overhand Grip
  • Riffling for a Spectator Peek
We consider the GT SpeedReader to be THE best marked deck available for the discerning professional who needs the KNOW that the secret marks will always be safe from an audiences' view...and that he can always get a fast, easy, read of every card.

If you're used to working with standard marked decks you'll find you can almost instantly adapt to the new GT SpeedReader system. It's intuitively the more natural, safer, easier-to-read marked deck for working under-fire in the real world.

Beautiful readers Report this review

Beautiful readers - so much more affordable than the other decks and they handle great! But if you're an old man who wears reading glasses like me - the marks are probably still too small for you.

Trick exposure on the graphic ... great :( Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2012
Ok before I write my review .. WHY DO THEY EXPOSE THE TRICK ON THE GRAPHIC?! Apparently so anybody casually browsing for magic decks can instantly see where to look on MY deck to see if it's marked.

That aside, this marking system eliminates the major annoyance I had with Boris Wild - you need to look in 4 spots to see which card it is. That requires time, which makes it obvious that you're scanning for a marking on the back.

I love this deck, just hate the exposure.

Poor Reader Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 6th, 2017
I had read the reviews on this deck, and was very impressed until I received it. It is definitely not a Speed Reader. You can not see the marks quickly at all even in the best of light. I don't know how Garret Thomas reads these marks. He must have Superman Eyesight, because mine is perfect, and I have tried, and tried. Plus if you try to do the peek from the right corner you have to read it upside down as well. Very disappointed, but Garret Thomas is very talented and a great card man, and he uses it very well.

This packet is perfect. Easy to read and virtually undetectable. I understand the need to show that this is a different kind of mark deck,But also agree that showing the method on the website is not great.

I'm a big fan of marked decks and this one is one of my favorites. It's VERY easy to read and the marks are not exactly in the usual place.

Subtle and tricky to read Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 26th, 2017
I'm not a frequent user of marked cards. This deck has the great advantage of looking just like a standard Bicycle deck (the Mandolin will not put off the normal spectator).

The drawback is that the markings require excellent vision to read. For me, no spring chicken, I have to put too much attention on the cards, and they have to be too close. The extra "heat" this puts on the deck makes it difficult for me to use. Younger eyes and bright lighting may make this useful for some.

And this isn't a slam at all. The trick with markings is the tradeoff between easy reading and the possibility of getting caught.

This is a very high quality marked deck. This deck is precision made. Shuffles easily and the markings are clever.

In my opinion, these are the best if you have decent eyesight. Well hidden marks that are easy to read. The quality of the cards is EXCELLENT! Very easy to shuffle and long lasting.

Five stars if you have good eyesight, one star if you're old and wear glasses. I'm old and wear glasses.
