Great routines! Report this review

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.

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.
This is why everybody should have this Report this review

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 chain.
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 reactions.
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.
Simply Brilliant! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 28th, 2015
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 like it Report this review

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 loading moves.
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 impossible appearance!

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 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.
Mine stabbed me Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 13th, 2016
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.
Not bad at all. Report this review

This will take some degree of practice to get the handling down. At first it was like threading a needle in the dark but a couple hours later I felt that I could perform it.
At first I was a little disappointed in it. It just seemed too simple to me and I was convinced it would be a tough sell.
I've showed about 10 people now and it knocked them all out! I hand them the keys to hold pre-vanish and have the ring reappear on the keychain they're holding. I feel like that's probably the strongest handling offered on the DVD.
The DVD...This is why it's 4 and not 5. The material is by no means bad and is fairly well taught but come on...MONO AUDIO? Not just that but the camera is completely out of focus most of the time and it's not enjoyable to watch. Even a little more effort here would go a LONG way. I guess it's a long standing tradition for magic dvds to be more abysmal in quality than low rent porn but come on...
