Get a good "read" on
... before you start throwing money into a losing pot.
In a nutshell, the "Black Predator" Readers
are the best luminous reader glasses currently available on the market.
They use the most advanced luminous-reader technology available to date,
and are not to be confused with the rinky-dink gadgets that you can find
through many online sources. This is a high-end professional cheating
gaff, designed to be used for cheating in live card games.
To the casual observer the lenses of the "Black Predator"
Readers appear to be black. In reality the lenses are wide-band
optical filters, with a very specific wavelength, that appears colored
only to the person wearing the glasses, when looking through the lenses.
These filters have been manufactured to a very tight tolerance.
The reader glasses work with a small range of luminous inks (sold separately).
It should also be noted that the ink itself is also not the same type
of conventional luminous ink that is sold elsewhere, with conventional
luminous kits. The specific ink that will produce the best results can
only be purchased through us and is only available to customers who purchased
the "Black Predator" glasses. We also have a luminous daub available
for those customers who prefer to mark the cards on the spot, during the
When the cards are properly prepared the luminous ink (or daub) will
not be visible to the naked eye. However, when viewed through the Black
Predator readers, the ink-marks will appear as darkened smudges on the
backs of playing cards. The luminous marks can be as small or as large
as you want them to be; they can be placed anywhere over the backs of
the cards, or along the white borders.
The Black Predators can be used in many card games, such as Poker, Blackjack,
Baccarat and many others. The system is especially well-suited for Texas
Hold'em where each player receives only two pocket cards. In critical
situations you will know when you should fold, and when you have your
opponent on a bluff. You no longer have to worry about poker tells, hunches,
intuitions and all that other unreliable nonsense. Once you start using
the Black Predator glasses you will always have a very good "read"
on your opponents (no pun intended).
Before you read any further about the unique technology of this system,
you need to know how this system compares to any of the other luminous
systems on the market.
What you need to know...
... before you throw your money away on other junk!
How do "Black Predator" Readers compare to conventional
red-lens luminous systems?
Any conventional luminous reader system, that consist of red filters
and green ink, is nothing but a color-blocking system. The red lenses
basically cancel out the red back design on the cards while slightly enhancing
the darkness of the faint green ink. Although a good red-lens luminous
system may in fact produce very good results, it will always have one
major flaw: the glasses are red, and therefore attract undesired attention.
Another flaw of any conventional red-lens system is that it can only
be used to mark red-backed cards. The reason for this limitation is, once
again, the fact that a conventional red-lens system is simply a color-blocking
system. By comparison, the "Black Predator" Readers can be used
to mark cards anywhere on the white areas of the cards. This system uses
a very different technology that enhances the contrast of the luminous
marks over white areas of the cards. The luminous ink can be applied to
the white borders of the cards; so when viewed through the "Black
Predator" Glasses, the marks darken up. This is a feature that separates
"Black Predator" Readers form any conventional red-lens system.
The conventional red-lens luminous systems have several disadvantages:
- They look like an obvious gimmick. People are not blind; people are
not color-blind; and people are not stupid. You will be laughed out
of a game if you show up with red glasses. You might as well show up
with a red clown nose. Do you think people would let you walk out with
their money after you've made some miracle play with red glasses on?
- Everyone has heard of them... unless you are planning to use them
in a poker game at your local kinder-garden.
- Red-suited cards appear invisible. Real red-lens luminous readers
(those that will produce desirable results) are so strong that you cannot
see the faces of red-suited cards. All the red-suited cards will appear
to have blank faces.
- They can only be used on red-backed cards.
- They will hurt your eyes. The real luminous readers - those that actually
work - are so strong that they will give you a headache after extended
use. In the long run they may actually do some permanent damage to your
- Should anyone ask to examine those red glasses, you're in trouble.
Conventional luminous systems are so obvious that the marks will stand
out like blood stains in fresh show, even to the untrained eye. Should
people discover those marks when looking through your red glasses, the
blood stains may easily be yours (if it happens to be snowing outside).
Remember, it is you alone against a table full of angry people.
How do "Black Predator" Readers compare to other advanced
luminous systems on the market?
There are some outlets that offer systems that use a gimmick that you
can attach to your own glasses. Read what we have to say about that before
you blow your money on that junk.
That system is strictly a sucker item. In plain English, this
means that the real sucker is the customer - not the intended mark.
When you buy that system you first find out that it only consists of a
rinky-dink red filter that you are supposed to attach to the back of any
regular sunglasses. For one, for the sake of your health, you better not
get caught with such a gimmick in any live game where the stakes would
justify the investment into any reader system. Secondly, those retailers
are misleading their customers into thinking that their special "gimmick"
can be attached to any dark sunglasses. This is simply not true.
Yes, you can attach the gimmick to any glasses you want, but you will
not get the desired results. Why not? Because sunglasses of different
manufacturers have different specifications, and regular sunglasses have
not been designed with card-cheating in mind. In plain English, different
sunglasses will filter different frequencies of light - and regular sunglasses
will also filter-out part of the light spectrum that you actually want
to use for reading luminous marks. Why? Because sunglasses have not been
designed to read luminous marks - they have been designed to protect your
eyes from harmful radiation form the sun, hence the term "sunglasses".
You don't have to be a genius to figure out that sunglass manufacturers
did not hire a scientist to conduct spectral analysis tests to make sure
their lenses don't filter-out the frequencies that card-cheats want to
use. Do you think that the guys selling that junk have spent any time
and money doing spectral analysis of commercially-available glasses? They
don't even know what that means.
New technology - "Black Predator" Readers
are not a simple color-blocking system, such as a conventional red-lens
luminous system. This means that you can mark a much wider range of cards,
even cards that are completely blank.
Gradated filters - When you walk in into a card game
you can't control the lighting situation. Sometimes it may be too bright,
other times too dark. In an ideal situation you should fine-tune the intensity
of the light until you get the best possible results. In a live game this
is not an option. However, the second best option is to control the intensity
of the filters. This is why the Black Predators come equipped with gradated
filters. In plain English, the filters are darker on top and lighter at
the bottom. By simply tilting your head you will be able to control the
intensity of the filters to match the lighting situation as closely as
possible, until you are able to see the marks as best as you can.
It should be noted that it is not apparent that the lenses are gradated
(not that this should be a big issues anyway). There are several reasons
for this. The filters are dark and they are fitted on wrap-around frames.
This means that there is no light source from behind which would illuminate
the filters. This is roughly the same reason why one-way mirrored sunglasses
look like mirrors form the outside, but look see-through form the inside.
Furthermore, we recommend that you wear a baseball cap (if it fits into
your appearance) while wearing the Black Predators. This will further
enhance the lighting situation for viewing - basically you want to be
looking out from a dark place towards a well-lit card table.
- Mirrored finish - Nowadays it is popular to wear
mirrored glasses at the poker table. If you wish, we can add mirrored
finish over the front of the lenses to make them appear more like regular
mirrored-sunglasses. However, please be advised that what a mirrored
finish does, essentially, is that it reduces the amount of light that
passes through the lenses; i.e. the mirror finish will make it darker
when you look through. Keep in mind, however, that there is a limit
to the intensity of the mirrored finish, because the glasses are already
so dark that a thick mirrored finish will make it almost useless for
- Custom frames - The standard frames for the Black
Predators are Ray Ban® wrap-around
frames (shown above). If you wish to fit our lenses into a different
pair of frames we will do it for you. Some restrictions apply, however,
because some frames are made in such way that the lenses can not be
replaced. Also, please be advised that the filters will work best with
a wrap-around style frame.
- Prescription lenses - Some customers who wear prescription
glasses may want to have the Black Predators fitted with prescription
filters. Although we can do this, we do not recommend it. The best solution
is to wear prescription contact lenses with regular Black Predator readers.
- Hybrid contact lens system - Lenses for Black Predators
are coated with several layers of different coatings. What this means,
basically, is that the lenses are essentially a combination of several
different filters. These filter coatings could in fact be separated
onto several physically separate pieces of glass. As added protection
some customers may wish to have us make a hybrid contact lens system,
with one part of the filter on the lenses of the glasses and another
part of the filter on contact lenses. In this case the readers will
only work if special contacts are also worn, at the same time. In a
practical sense, this adds an extra layer of protection, because no
one will be able to see the luminous marks on the cards, with the glasses
alone, if anyone happens to put your glasses on. Please be advised that
this option dramatically increases the production costs.
The good news about "Black Predator"
- They are expensive - Don't be alarmed by the price.
The high price is good news because it means that not all the suckers
will have it, or even know what to look for. Actually, if you think
about it, you don't have to pay for anything. You get them for free,
in a way, because your suckers will pay for them. Depending what stakes
you play for, they may even pay for themselves in the first session.
- They look like regular sunglasses - With the popularity
of poker on TV no one even gives a second though when a player is wearing
sunglasses at the poker table. Everybody know that this is to protect
your "tells". Let the suckers think what they want; in the
meantime their cards may as well be face up.
- The marks don't stand out like neon signs - While
the suckers are under the impression that good luminous readers should
make the marks light up like the lights on the Christmas tree, the professionals
know that this is not so. If for any reason anyone else happens to put
your glasses on, and looks at the cards, they will most likely not see
anything. Remember, in any good system you still have to know what to
look for. The glasses only make it possible to actually see the hidden
marks - but the marks are still hidden to all that don't
know what to look for.
- We don't keep them in stock - "Black Predators"
are not mass-produced. This means that we make a pair for you, whenever
you decide to buy one. What it really means is that the market is not
flooded with them, and that there will never be a blowout sale.
- We don't have pictures of luminous marks on this site
- That's right. We don't want all the suckers to know exactly what to
look for. This information is privileged only to our customers.
- Black Predators should not be used in very dark places (which should
- The system cannot be used under fluorescent lights. Fluorescent light
tubes produce a wavelength of light that is completely useless for the
use of Black Predators. The luminous marks will not be visible under
those lighting conditions.
- You should NEVER ATTEMPT TO USE THIS SYSTEM IN A CASINO.
Modern casinos have equipment that will detect these luminous marks
within minutes. So, this system is designed especially for private games.
- Some brands of playing cards are better suited than others. This system
works best on playing cards with intricate back designs, such as Bicycle,
Tally-Ho, Shellbacks, KEM Arrowbacks...etc. The busier the back design
the better, because you can get away with stronger luminous marks. By
contrast, the use of cards with uniform backs, such as the popular Bee
brand, should be avoided, because even slight imperfections in a uniform
back design are more likely to be noticed by astute observers.
- Black Predator glasses or contact lenses should NEVER BE WORN
IN THE SUN. These glasses have not been designed to block harmful
radiation from the sun. In fact, these luminous filters will amplify
all the harmful radiation that regular sunglasses are designed to block-out.
You will severely damage your eyes if you wear Black Predators in the
Do you want a private demonstration before you
decide to buy?
If you wish, you can arrange for a private demo, before you decide to
purchase this product. A private demo costs $500. If you decide to buy
the product, your $500 demo fee will be fully applied towards your purchase.
If you decide to not purchase the $500 fee is NOT refundable. You should
only consider paying for a demo if you actually want to make a purchase.
This type of arrangement is the standard industry procedure for any demos
of professional cheating gaffs, and it is not up for negotiation. This
also ensures that you know that not too many people have seen the system
with their own eyes, which further ensures that your suckers will not
know what to look for (because most of them have not had the chance to
see the real stuff). The purpose of a private demo is not so you can see
if the system works, it is so you can make an educated decision if the
system is best for you. Remember, just because a system is a good one,
it doesn't necessarily mean that it is the best solution for your needs.
The demo can be done in two installments.
- First half of the demo is done through the mail. You send us the first
half of the demo fee ($250) by mail. As soon as your payment clears
we send you a sample playing card, marked with our luminous ink or daub.
When you receive this card you may actually think that we sent an un-marked
card. Once you have this card in your possession you can examine it
to your heart's content. Chances that you would spot our luminous marks
are next to none - even if you try using red filters.
- Whenever you are ready to proceed with the second part of the demo
you send us another $250, which is the remaining balance of the demo
fee, and make arrangements to meet. During the meeting you will get
the chance to see a demo of the actual system. You will also bring your
sample card to the meeting and get the chance to look at your sample
card through our filters. At this time you may actually get goose bumps
because you will see for the first time that the sample card you had
in your possession bears a mark that can bee seen from across the table,
yet still invisible to the naked eye even now when you know exactly
what to look for. If you were a serious buyer there should be no reason
why you would decide not to purchase this system, after seeing this
demonstration with your own eyes. The $500 demo fee is credited directly
towards the purchase of the system (which consists of the glasses and
ink), so, in effect, you are not spending any extra money for this demo.
If you were just a curiosity seeker, and had no intention to buy the
system, you should consider your $500 well-spent because you had the
chance to look at professional cheating gaffs.
If you are a serious buyer we strongly recommend that you request a demo.
Not only will you get the chance to see the system before you commit to
purchase it, but more importantly, you will get personal instructions
to learn how to properly put the work on the cards. In other words, we
will give you valuable one-on-one lessons at no extra charge. The only
additional expense is a travel cost. However, you do not have to cover
100% of our travel expenses. If you request a demo, we will submit a travel
budget to you, and you will have the chance to accept it or to decline
it. In the interest of providing the best possible customer service, we
always round off our travel budget lower than what it actually costs to
travel. In other words, we cover part of our travel expenses from the
$500 demo fee.
Furthermore, in the interest of offering the best possible value for
the demo, we will also show you some of our other products.
