"Clever.Practical.Deceptive." - R. Paul Wilson

Ring flight… Wait for it… To spectator’s key ring.

This isn’t a pipe dream, this is the latest release from Roddy McGhie.

Forget everything you know about Ring Flight. No reels, no suspicious key fobs, no strange purses with inexplicable chains that the ring appears on. This brilliantly simple gimmick with no moving parts not only allows you to vanish a borrowed ring, but it also makes your retention vanish look better. With Roddy’s expert tutorial you learn a routine where the borrowed ring reappears on the spectator’s keys while they are holding them! This practical effect isn’t just straight forward, it’s a miracle.

Flight 101 is easy to do and comes ready to go right out of the box. Perfect for restaurant workers, casual close up, and street magicians alike. Flight 101 is a hard-hitting ring to impossible location developed by one of the most inventive magicians working today.

Special credit to Jamie Williams who independently created an unpublished similar idea to Flight 101

Sorely lacking instruction; unimpressive gimmickk Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 6th, 2020
If this gimmick is “new”- it is exactly what you expect.

As far as being “easy”- you start dirty, end dirty, and must accomplish two separate loads.

This might be mitigated with better instruction, but the 26 minute DVD- filmed in a dark pub- *never shows a reverse angle, from Roddy’s point of view.* There is no close up of either load. And he glosses right over the required finger palm. (Doesn’t it make sense to show *where to hold the gimmick?!*)

In a short final scene, he describes (rather than demonstrates) his favorite version of the trick. He says he “can’t find” the prop he normally uses. He’s in a sweatshirt, but says he’d usually wear a jacket. It all gives the distinct impression that not a ton of effort went into this DVD, which is pretty ballsy given the price.

Also, Nick Locapo is in the promotional video, but not the instructional DVD. I don’t really understand why you’d get that footage and then NOT include it.

I generally wait for product reviews before ordering, but I’ve been wanting a follow up to my Deluxe Nest of Wallets. Sadly- this isn’t it.

Thumbs up to Penguin for allowing me to return it. I could not even recommend this Open Box, though, since I don’t think the instructions provided are sufficient to actually perform the trick.

(I went with two stars over one because the video isn't a lie- the trick could conceivably be done, if better instructions become available. But don't expect it to be "easy.")

Absolutely disgusted Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2020
This thing is a piece of crap. The vanish is awful and any bozo with a brain can tell the gimmick is what it is. Sticks out like a purple thumb tip with no way to hide it. The handling is terrible too. Just buy a reel. Thinking about trying to return it.

Stick with a reliable Ring Flight Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2020
Regrettably this isn’t all that useful. Like another reviewer said, you start dirty and end dirty. There is a possibility with failure where the ring could fall off. I’d say that you are taking a huge risk by using this gimmick. Stick with a more reliable method.

Terrible explanation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 5th, 2020
The video needs to be redone, He is hard to understand and there are no good views of the handling. Very disappointed

Ohhh Yeah Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 4th, 2020
I love a prop that's simple, solid and easy to manage because I only have space for a couple of 'em. This is sweet simplicity and it is fantastic. I'll use this for a kicker ending or call-back. A routine is discussed at the end of the instructional video that could be a remarkable mentalism effect with just a minor change to the reveal. If you like the premise, you'll be happy with this one.

Presentation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 2nd, 2020
The presentation on how to use the gimmick was:
1) to fast with the presentation nor explained well
2) did not show how to use one hand in hooking the ring to the gimmick
slow enough
3) to fast in showing how to hook the gimmick to the key ring
4) to fast nor explained well how to unhook the gimmick from the ring and
key ring
Hands were in the way during the presentation

Close up Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 7th, 2020
Awesome trick but I like to see more Close up how the ring is on the set of keys so I can make sure I’m doing it right and a close-up how you handle it sometimes it’s more helpful seen it and close up.
