The Box Review

Official Review

There are so many card production boxes, I thought I would share my view of The Box compared to a few other "clear" production boxes.

David Penn has the Mystery Solved box,
David Regal has the Clarity Box, and
Mark has The Box.

I think Mark's The Box is the best device for walk-around.
Several reasons:
1. It is smaller than the other two.
2. It looks more familiar than the other two. It looks a bit like a little pill box.
3. It comes with cloth bag with rivet holes. This bag is designed so you can place the box inside and place a small padlock through the rivet holes for a more dramatic routine (you must supply your own padlock).

The instruction is very good and this device lends itself to many very good applications.

For Parlor or small stage routines, I think David Regal's Clarity Box is best because it is the largest of the three and it has some decals that convey something "hazardous". I think this box is more visible and the "hazard" theme is one that works very well.

My least favorite is the Mystery Solved Box because it is a bit larger and less versatile than The Box for close-up, and smaller and less versatile than The Clarity box for parlor or stage.


The only caution I have is that you need a magnet to reset the box. This can be a bit cumbersome, but Mark provides an idea of gluing a magnet to the inside of a card box bottom and using it to reset. I think this is a great solution. He also explains how he frequently resets the box right in front of an audience if he forgets to reset it in advance.


For close-up, I think The Box is the best "see-through" card production device out there.

Manufacturer's Description:

From the creative mind of Mark Southworth comes this Revolutionary step forward in the signed card to box plot...

A box with a folded card is clearly displayed trapped in rubber bands & placed into a spectators hands or pocket or nearby table. 52 cards are displayed & your spectator takes anyone & signs the card. The card is lost back inside the deck, shuffled & place away in the magicians pocket. The Box is now displayed & rubber bands removed... the card is tipped out... The spectators signed card.

What Others Are Saying:

"The Box is a mechanical marvel! Kennedy's Mystery Box updated and ultra portable. A very powerful utility box that all magicians should carry on them."

"What a step forward in the box plot, love it !"

"Outstanding, one of the most beautifully deceptive bits of kit in my arsenal, this should be called the sniper box, because it kills every time."

"This is ingenious!"

"This is THE best card to box I have ever had the pleasure to witness. It has everything that REAL magic should look like. Organic, open, and a diabolical method that sits right under their noses."
