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.

CAUTION

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.

VERDICT

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.
