The problem with Wayne's box is that I don't use a close up pad. With MS I can place the box down on any colour table. Of all the clear box's MS suits me best, other box's may suit other performers.

Don't need a close up pad if you are creative with the gimmick.

With MS I can do it walk around with or without a table, I don't have to worry about being creative with any gimmicks and my hands are clean. That's what I need from a switching box. None of the others meet my needs as well as MS. Other performers may have different needs that are better met by other box's.

Having had the clarity box.I am looking for something smaller.I was going for mystery solved.Then the paragon arrived with 3sixty.My initial thoughts can you buy a similar box for mystery solved.So maybe put box into pocket. But leave lid on table.Switch for clean box, where you later put lid on..Maybe leave on table?

Hi Magic in Mind. There really is no need to switch boxes at the end as all the focus is on the card. Just put the box away, end of! Sometimes we as magicians over complicate things!

Jons handling for Paragon is fab, but does need a clean up afterwards. But the box is examinable. Mystery solved is a simple clean up - just put the box away! You decide what's best for you my friend. Which one fits in with your performance style, skill set etc.

There are other advantages of Paragon that you may want to consider. The Paragon box looks better quality than MS. The shape and size of the card in the box is the same shape and size of the card that ends up in your hand. The box is completely angle proof, if there is any heat on the box then the box can casually be left on the table afterwards. I place the empty box back on the spectators hand whilst I unfold the card then I hand the card out and take the box back. The clean up afterwards takes a split second and is easy.

So many comments which seem really silly. If someone was to read over the 1st few pages of this & do the same with paragon , everything is revealed . I suggest that people take the plunge and buy one of these(I have both) . Then work it extensively. It makes no difference if card in box is the same size as mercury folded card. It makes no difference if the box is handed out. Used mystery box at least 500 times & it's perfect. Used paragon about 100 times and it's perfect. Mike donoghue

Sorry I don't agree, if you were using something like the lightening box or john kennedys box where they only get to see the card for a split second before it is tipped out then it probably won't matter if the card is folded differently. But we are talking of a clear pespex box which in some of the routines is placed on the spectators hand. This is an object they have never seen before, they are going to be interested in it. They and other spectators are going to have a good look at it and if the card inside looks nothing like the card that comes out there is a good chance that someone will notice, but most spectators won't say anything to you but they will talk when you have gone. I think sometimes magicians do spectators a disservice, they are not as stupid as some magicians think.
I do agree though that both boxes are great.

I agree that spectators are not as stupid as some magicians think. However. If someone thinks they know how something is done( happend in the past) they find you & tell you or they tell you immediately . Yes they are 99.99 percent wrong but that's what I have found. The point I am trying to make is both boxes are good. It is no good theorising. Buy one of them and then use it a heck of a lot . After using it a lot in an entertaining routine, all questions will be ansered and that person will know if it's for them ie. if it fits the bill. I am trying to be helpfull to anyone who is serious about parting with their cash to actually buy it and use it. Mike donoghue

Reviving an old thread here. I just got my hands on Mystery Solved and I have to say, I love it. Performed it twice so far and no one had a clue. Once that card is out of the box, there is zero heat on it. Out of all of these clear box illusions, I feel like this one suits me the best. Easy to carry. Very deceptive and very practical. Nice one, Dave!

Jon's one is called Paragon 3D. I personally prefer it to Mystery Solved (which I also own), because Paragon does not have angle problems. But there isn't much between the 2 products. It is just a matter of personal preference, and what makes you feel most comfortable.
