Pro-Flite is a great trick and a lot of thought has been put into it. I have used a caribiner with a
reel to do a ring flite and it can't be to closely examined. Pro-flite can be examined and the
audience will find nothing.The DVD is decent in that it teaches the method but what was amazing was
that it taught a string routine that plays in beautifully with the Pro-flite key fob. The only
drawback is the Key fob is quite irregular looking. It's nothing major but overall it looks better
than a key ring in a leather pouch.

I’ve always wanted to learn a version of ring flight, but always avoided purchasing it because of
the possibility of damaging the spectator’s ring. This version totally eliminates that worry.
The master grip move is a fantastic move and is great for a jaw dropping opening effect; it
really gets spectators’ attention. The reactions are always of extreme amazement once they realize
what has happened. I usually get this reaction at the climax of the trick, not at the beginning of
the routine! The other rope effects are a great part of the DVD. I use a modified version of
presentation #3, with the bonus move. This equates to about 3 minutes of high quality, dynamic, and
visually appealing close-up magic. Professional quality prestidigitation, as the routine literally
goes full circle ending with the ring back on the Key Ring.
I would recommend practicing with
several different sizes/gender of rings. I use an inexpensive small woman’s diamond engagement style
ring and a man’s larger wedding band I purchased on ebay. The manipulation of these is much
different, especially when performing the additional rope routines. While performing Earl Nelson’s
move and the Master Grip move, I noticed larger smooth men’s wedding bands are sometimes hard to
grip. For me, it happens when my hands get dry. I’ve also noticed when the string becomes a bit
frayed; some light, smaller women’s rings may stick to these frayed threads.
The DVD is
visually slick, well produced, relatively clear, concise, and very informative. It made learning the
sleights and the routines easy. The only slight critique would be that the audio is a little low for
the explanations chapters.
I’ve been practicing and performing Pro-Flite for few months now and
it has become my favorite trick for walk-around magic.

This is a great product as far as value for money is concerned. I bought this when my key chain
broke and I was still saving money to buy a Ring Flight Revolution gimmick. I figured, why buy a new
normal key chain and not buy Pro-Flite...?
So, I did. I performed it a week later at a table
hopping performance and the reactions were amazing. So this is why everybody should have this:
1.) If you have keys on a key chain, buy it. There is no reason why you should carry another key
2.) If you don't perform any kind of ring flight routine, you don't know what you are
missing. It's not cards or coins, uses a spectator's personal item so it is guaranted to have great
3.) It is much cheaper than other ring flights and because it doesn't use a reel it
is very reliable and you know that you will not damage the borrowed ring.
I will still buy Ring
Flight Revolution at one point because I think it is also a great product, but I will probably hook
it on my Pro-Flight key. Like I said before, if you are using a key chain, even if you have other
gimmicks on it, why not have this one?
Overall I am very happy with this purchase. It's easy to
use, reliable and relatively inexpensive.

After receiving this product, I was a bit underwhelmed with the 'gimmick' included. After examining
it and not finding the secret I put in the DVD.
The idea behind this is truly brilliant.
The 'gimmick' has a clever secret that allows it to load a ring on, but it truly is normal - with no
trap doors or wires!
I tested this product a lot before this review (as both climax to my
ring on rope routine [Nick teaches a nice one on the DVD] and just a vanish and reappearance) and
the reactions were amazing! And I love the idea of giving the ring flight to the spectators and
truly letting them examine it (as the gimmick is in plain sight, yet unfindable to those who do not
know the secret).
The ideas that Nick has compiled into this DVD are great, ranging from
full routines to offbeat miracles.
All in all, a brilliant product well-worth the price!

I just want to say how happy I am with this product. So much so that this is the first time I've
taken the time to write a review. I owened and performed Steve Dusheck's "Ringer", which inspired
this gimmick. The improvements made to this pull-less ring on keychain are exactly what it needed.
Coupled with the excellent teaching on the DVD; not to mention the great ring on string bonus
routine, and this effect is worth far more than $45. I buy a lot of new effects that in my opinion
are not worth the price charged. Pro Flite should cost $75, but I'm glad it doesn't. I couple this
effect with Richard Sanders "Any Ring" and it kills! Buy it if you perform ring to keychain!

I really like this prop, its great quality and the dvd is well put together... the routines are
great. There is really only one nacky move and depending on your personal routines or approach to
the ring flight you may not like this. The loading of the gimmick will take time to "master" and by
master i mean get the speed down to make it look non-suspicious. With other ring flights like
"departure" or "ring flight revolution" you will not have to worry about loading time or any nacky
So all and all I love what this accomplishes, once that particular move is
mastered you can literally show the keychain empty up until the moment you wish to make the

Good compliment to the Deluxe Nest of Wallets. Also has a good routine using a string. Practice
this and you will have a good opener.

I already knew the gimmick I was going to receive and I bought it because I really liked the routine
you can do with it, and because it´s a very nice item that you will carry around with you every day,
even when you are not going to perform. It´s both, an awesome magic device that will surprise people
and a useful everyday object.
The price is a little bit high but a haven´t regret of my
purchase and I think I won´t ever.
I am relatively new to magic. I am not an expert at sleight of hand. Despite this, I found it easy
to manipulate this gimmick. I was consistently getting the move down within a few hours and
performed it successfully a few days later. On another note, I was wondering if the trick can be
performed without a jacket on. I emailed Nick Einhorn directly and got a response within a day or
two. (It can be performed without a jacket, but you probably don't want anyone directly behind
you.) The ring on string tricks on the dvd make for a beautiful little routine. Everything resets
instantly. I'm really happy with this and several of my friends are getting them as well.
I've been practicing with the little cheap ones you can get on eBay. The official one is larger and
handles much easier. Looks better too. Only mine was a bit hastily fashioned. The corogated locking
mechanism keeps chipping off into my fingers. Last night I got a sliver and had no idea where it
came from. Today I pick up the set not even doing the move and a big honking shard get logged in my
pinky drawing blood. So three stars. Great trick but I shouldn't have to bleed for my art.
