In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
NEW AND IMPROVED!
Borrow a ring , and in the cleanest way you vanish it at your fingertips - both hands are clearly empty. Reach into your back pocket and produce your keys - and their ring is on your keyring!
Introducing the world's most impossible and invisible ring flight. Departure is a pull-style flight built into a key fob that fits on your keychain.
Departure was first released in 2008 and Chris has performed it thousands of times. He took his time redesigning this new and improved version.
He's added all new features AND made it as tough as a battleship. Plus he kept the price the same!
Here’s a comprehensive list of the new features and improvements:
Takes up even less space on your keychain. Plus I added some handsome lock icons to give it an even more realistic look.
Increased from 18” to 24”. This allows you to display the ring even further away from you body before the vanish. Also good if you like to perform wearing a jacket.
Designed for years of service - WILL NOT SNAP OR BREAK.
There’s an extra bushing on the housing where the cable emerges to cut down even more on friction. Friction is the enemy of a good flight.
Makes it easy to get any size ring on the clip without even looking. Plus it just looks cool - like you just finished scaling Everest!
Wherever you go, Departure goes. Built to withstand heavy use, Departure is a ring flight that can withstand the CLOSEST scrutiny. It's whisper silent and mega powerful.
Included in the online instructions, Derek Roberts teaches his Shirt Vanish - a way to cleverly vanish any ring right under spectators' noses.
You'll also learn a stunning ring and key transposition, which climaxes with their ring appearing your keychain.

Gimmick is good but instruction is lacking Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 7th, 2015
The gimmick received is excellent quality and seems as though it could last you for years of solid use if cared for appropriately and at only $30 for such a great trick this is a real bargain.
Unfortunately I feel like I should take off a star because the instructions for using it are sub par, in particular instructions on making the hook up are somewhat lacking Darren refers to it as "the most crucial part of the routine" and then goes on to simply clip the ring on saying it needs to be done smoothly but as for precisely HOW to do it smoothly, it isn't covered , I'm not even sure which side the opening should be on. >:|

As I type this, my Departure is about 2 feet away from me. In my bag. On my key chain. I always, always have it with me, except for when I give my keys to the valet guy.
And the NEW model--the one here--is SO good. Super quiet, super strong. I've done it hundreds of times and it's holding up strong.
Bizzaro is my favorite creator...but I've got to make some special category for Smith. He's like, my favorite guy who makes diabolical devices look like ordinary objects.
Great - Silent and Strong Report this review

I got this at the Magic Live Expo from Chris. He's a quality guy and this reel is too. Very silent, no need to make noise when using this lol.
Problems Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 7th, 2015
So anyway people have been calling this "silent". The first time I tried it I heard a distinct metallic rattling sound. "Was that my keys doing?", that I though. Seperating the keys from the gimmick, I tried it again. RATTLE.
Turns out the problem is the actual metal latch that connects to the ring/key/whatever. I have tried silencing the metal, which works all for everything except the moving parts and after it looking mutilated from its origional, it still rattled.
The pulling mechanism also fails sometimes. What I mean is it will only partially pull to a point or it drags slowly, not the SNAP you need for a clean vanish.
The idea turns out to be great, but the mechanics are flawed. Perform only in an an environment with noise cover, that is the conclusion I made from trial and error.

I love this type of Ring Flight. I had the original Rink-key, but this is even better. I take it with me all the time and use it when I get the chance.

Departure Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2015
Disappointed. I have the original and was very excited about the newest version.
Pluses: Smaller housing as advertised (see note below); longer cable as advertised.
Minuses: 1. Not comfortable with the Teflon cable. Probably fine but I do like the steel cable on the original. 2. No extra bushing as advertised. In fact the bushing received on mine is half the size as the bushing on the original. 3. Carabiner clip is locked closed on the extra end. Might be a plus for others but I like it unmodified. 4. The buttons are painted on the new version but should be raised rather than be flat on the housing. 5. The housing on this new one is smaller but the difference is really negligible.
In my opinion if you bought the original don't buy the new version - unless the longer cable appeals to you. The advertising on the differences is true but misleading. I was really upset that the bushing was so much smaller rather than receiving an extra bushing as advertised as noise can be an issue. Trick is still very good but I felt I was misled regarding the old and new version.
Awesome Ring Flight Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2014
This is a sweet little device, it has been on my key ring since I got it, it goes great with B. Smith and Peter Eggink's Closure, with the Ring disappearance/teleportation/linking thing and works well if the keys are in your back pocket(those who have Closure will get it)
It also goes great with Alan Rorrison's Linkey, Gregory Wilson's FreaKey, the Shift Key, and of course Chris Smith's Ignition which I keep on my key ring, I may look like a janitor but I'm always ready for a show
Great impromptu trick Report this review

There are a few tricks that i carry on me at all times and this is one of them. not bulky at all, and actually looks like something i would carry around.
Great Gimmick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 23rd, 2014
This is a great gimmick and something I perform casually with all the time. It's always on me, and always ready. I couldn't ask more of it, especially for the price.
Pros: (just some of them)
1. Won't break or fail on you, everything is really tough
2. Easy to carry with you, goes straight on your key chain just as it says
4. Not hard to do
5. Great value
6. The video is really thorough, its obvious that Chris Smith has lots of experience with this and lets you in on all the minute tips and details
7. Rick Lax's addition is really great, with an awesome subtlety, really ties the trick together
Cons: (just nitpicking here)
1. The white lock and unlock symbols on the gimmick started to fade, but a normal car key would do this, so its not an issue
2. Sometimes the gimmick doesn't get the ring all the way inside my back pocket, it hasn't been a problem yet, as I haven't and wouldn't perform this surrounded anyway, and may be fixed through practice
Bottom Line: If you are thinking of performing a ring flight, and you should, then this is the gimmick for you.
