Without wanting to sound like an utter MxR fanboy, the cases do rock though. Whatever the extra cost of shipping half way round the world, and abeit that it may seem to be paying for packaging and carting a lot of fresh air around, but once I re-jigged my bag layout to make room for 8 of them it's been a stress reducer.

I want their cases. Everything else is a compromise. When I tried to order from the Australian site and entered UK as address I was informed "can't do". Just to test, I left address the same but changed UK to USA and all was fine. Can only surmise it has to do with local UK distributor contracts. Jigsaw sells the cards with cases at a very nice price but not just cases. Bummer.

It looks like Ross has tried to engage a good UK source, as I bet they've been having nightmares. But that means it's Jigsaw's problem, not Ross's. Then here's the challenge to Jigsaw: bring in an extra batch of 'cases only' (60 worth?) and sell separates, otherwise they are not worthy of being the UK 'distributor'. Merely a 'pusher'.

Bruce, I wouldn't diss Jigsaw. They are selling cards plus cases for 39. I bought cards only (didn't check Jigsaw) from "other distributor" for 50.

I was not intending to diss Jigsaw. It was stated that Jigsaw do not supply boxes so I thought I would try the other lot.

may all stories have a happy ending. I just contacted Prestons and asked if they had any MxR cases. Yupp, they replied and promptly mailed me four cases for the four cards I bought without boxes last month. Free of charge. No wonder they have a loyal client base.
