A small clear box is placed on someone's hand, or table. Viewable from any angle, a folded card is seen inside. After performing your favourite signed card routine, the card in the box is tipped out onto your hand. The box is clearly empty and you cleanly unfold the card in your hand to reveal the signed card.

When Jon Allen released Paragon, many said it was the ultimate solution to the 'Card To Clear Box' effect. However, Jon has now taken it to a new level of performance and deception. With an actual folded card visible inside the box visible from ANY angle he has created the absolute cleanest and most natural Card to Clear Box ever! Perfect for strolling, restaurant, formal close up and even parlour magicians.

Paragon 3D has fooled and amazed some of the most renowned close up magicians on the planet. The illusion is so perfect you will fool yourself... and everyone who sees it will be blown away!

Some important points for you to consider:

The box can be viewed from any angle - on top, underneath, the sides and even behind
The card inside the box is an actual folded card, not a semi-replica or a picture
Every action from tipping out to the reveal is perfectly natural
You can safely hand the box to someone or place it on a table before and after the reveal
The box is 100% examinable
Everything ends clean
No performing limitations
Resets easily and quickly
You can easily change the object in the box i.e. playing card, paper money, prediction
Perfect for magic effects or mentalism

Kennedy's card to box-great, Clarity - very good, but large, 3Sixty - getting hard to improve upon. Then comes Penn's mystery solved - can it get any better? Along comes PARAGON - WE NOW HAVE THE HOLY GRAIL. I have them all. In my humble opinion look no further. Paragon is the one you need.

Has flaws not perfect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 11th, 2015
I love the Clarity box better because its a %100 percent sure fire and easier to do and the gimmick does all the work for you. I have practiced this for hours and i keep running into the same problems the dollar bill get stuck sometimes in the box because the box is too small and you have to trim the bill or a playing card to make it fit in this small box. Next problem is you can hear the [gimmick] if you are in a quiet room. Also i have had to use stronger [gimmick] to make this work because the [gimmick] they give you is weak. Yes this is a very good close up bill switch but requires lots of practice to make sure you have room for no errors but i cannot see this being perfect every time its done.

Practical and amazing for the audience Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2015
I absolutely love this. I think this is the Ultimate card to clear box.
I also own Clarity Box, which I also love but it's more adapted to parlour in my opinion. paragon is great for close-up. It is totally baffling as it can be placed in the spectactor's hand from the beginning.
If you like that kind of trick, get this, you won't regret it!

Not 100% reliable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 12th, 2015
The idea is good and the box looks really professional but this trick doesn't work 100% of the time. I can't afford taking the risk that this will not work at the gig.

Need Practice but worth it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 21st, 2015
Not what I expected at all, but afterall I think it really can destroy everybody is practiced correctly. It worth the learning and the practice!

I think It's a little bit expensive for what it really is, you pay more for the method than the box itself, unless a little plastic box worth 45$ loll

Afterall, it's a good trick and a really nice impossible location switch to learn. Completely examinable for every skeptic =)

Very strong alone, or as an ambitious closer. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 23rd, 2018
Although the effect by itself is very strong, you'll most likely get a better reaction if you use it at the end of an ambitious card routine of some sort. The packaging is very well done. Solid box and extra material if needed. When constructing the gimmick, really take your time and make sure it's as close to perfect as you can craft it. The sleight that you need to learn shouldn't be too new to most magicians, but it'll take a good amount of practice to get it up to performance level. Jon Allen's dvd teaches a second method that makes the sleight much easier if you're not too comfortable with the regular method as well, which is a huge plus. All around a great effect that will blow audiences away.

Perfect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2015
My first signed card to Box was Kennedys Mystery Box and I would never sell it.
I am also a proud owner of Kohlers Lightning Box and also still love it very much. Mystery Solved striked my interest again because for prediction cards there is nothing better than something in clear view, which can fire up the imagination of your audience. I thought I had enough versions now but iam very glad that I proofed myself wrong on this. Paragon 3D compared to all "card in clear box versions" is the most clean and perfect one there is to date! It Looks super clean, it feels super super clean and when you leave the box on the table there is nothing left behind to find. But there is more to it: the box is very beautifully made, sturdy and of high quality. The size is perfectly measured in terms of design (it just looks good) and its needed properties which leads to the fact about a complete folded playing card inside. You don't have to worry about angles at all.
Your spectator can put it onto his nose if you wish so (and if he can handle it).
Together with perfect score (a great and fast helper to obtain a perfect MCF without struggle) you can not go wrong. Thanks to Jon, Wayne and De Cova and everything that led to this fine version.

Amazing or a puzzle? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2015
If you put in the necessary practice this might well be the best close-up card to clear box.
Unsolved problem is the impossible effect itself. For me just arguing that magicians do impossible things isn’t reason enough to do the effect. What is lacking to make it magical is - as Teller puts it - a connection between cause and effect. I still favor Bruno Hennig’s card in box which avoids this problem.

Best Card to Impossible Location Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 13th, 2015
The DVD did not work correctly in my player so I had to use my computer to view it. After spending months working on the correct presentation, I have come to the conclusion that this is the best card, bill, prediction to impossible location on the market. There are some great alternatives out there which don't require as much practice, but believe me the practice is worth it! With the price that it is offered for here on Penguin you do not want to pass this up! If you have difficulty working it at the beginning, just keep studying the DVD and Jon's handling and you will soon get it.

A perfect illusion Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 26th, 2015
I love paragon 3D. I think the illusion ist perfect and the teaching as with all of Jon Allens products is exellent. The method needs some practice. This is not a trick you can do after a few minutes. If you like the trick with the playing card you will need to practice even more, because of the slights needed. I also use the clarity box. David´s method is easier to do and the box is more visual for stage.
I recommend both products. The reactions are great.
