A PDF reader with a fast search feature?

I am looking for a pdf reader with a FAST search feature. I have some old gamebooks in pdf where one needs to search for a paragraph number. The current Adobe reader is WAY to slow, and it's also slow if I open the PDF on the reader side. Any reccomendtions?

If you have market access on a phone the best one is repligo reader.
But as far as I know there is no free version and only available through the market, although you might find a version on a file share site.

I got it. It searches about as slow as the adobe reader.

The ebook side actually searches/somewhat fast (it has options to serch from current page, forward, back) very well but it doesn't diplay the text so well.

What I need is a pdf reader with decent text search options and searches fast

Repligo has a find function, from menu select more, find - a bar pops open at the top with arrows left - search back, right - search forward. A search for a specific word had results for me in less than 5 seconds, each tap on the arrow brought the next instance of the word up. It also reads bookmarks, whic you can easily add to your files with JPDF Bookmarks -
