Almost every magician seems to love the Strike or hit style double lifts and most magicians seems to think that it is the way to go in terms of double lifts. After hearing other magicians rave about it for years i decided to learn some strike doubles so i picked up a few sources. After viewing some of them i just dont get it. Whats so great about it? Almost every double lift that i have seen that already has a break (get ready) looks so much cleaner, more relaxed and more natural. I understand that a pro might be that you dont need a get ready, but seriously how hard is it to just pinky count two cards?
