Designed by two of the top creators in British magic, Bob Swadling (Creator of The Flipper Coin) and Nicholas Einhorn (F.I.S.M award winner & creator of Spooked - The Ultimate Haunted Deck).

Pro-Flite is simply one of the most practical, reliable and astonishing versions of 'Ring Flight' currently available.

I say:

This is one of the most visual magic that happens under the spectators' nose and they won't find nothing!!
The method is simple yet very visual and they will keep asking you to perform it.

One of the other reasons why this is so great is that the item looks very innocent and it is an everyday thing.

Get this! You'll enjoy every performance with it. It might look too
you'll not be disappointed. trust me!!

im already performed this trick 5 times and the reactions is amazing...
and the best part from this trick spectators can hold the keychain and they will find nothing!!! because the gimmick is innocent just like an ordinary key chain.

maybe u guys already know the ufo coin this effect is similar like that one but in different gimmick..

You get a few routines plus one with ring & rope.
I think the price is a little bit high for the keychains buat anyway you not buy the keychains you buy the tricks.

The Pro-Flight package includes the special keyring with leather fob, a lace for a ring on string sequence and a very comprehensive instructional DVD. Nicholas Einhorn is a very good teacher and the explanations on the DVD are extremely clear.
One of the nicest features of Pro-Flite is that you can display the keyring very cleanly to show that it only has keys on it before making the spectator’s ring appear alongside those keys instantly.

it can be done anytime and anywhere and you always be ready to perform an astonishing flying ring to keychains.

I bought this about a month ago after the initial hype.

Its very simple in design (most good tricks are) and easy to perform after a bit of practice but I could not get away with what i thought was a 'sound issue' when performing.

In the end I sold it on to someone who could enjoy it more than me

I saw one first-hand, and my first question was whether or not Richard Osterlind had been credited in the instructions, as he'd published a very similar method many moons ago. Apparently not. :(

I ended up losing the leather and metal fob to this in the end. It was a good effect, although as I used it as my normal key ring it did jingle AND jangle quite a lot.

If anyone knows where to get a similar fob do let me know!

I have just posed on a different ring Flite thread but thought I would repeat what i said here. I have not seen this one but cannot reccommend Dave Bonsall's Ring Flight Revolution enough. It uses an original car key ( which you can choose from many makes to match your own) and the way the gimmick is housed is excellent. It has a locking mechanism that allows the spectator to take ththeir own ring off the fob and most importantly comes with a 2 year guarantee. I have sent mine back a few times after my own meddling made it malfunction and the customer service is really top notch.

A lot of money undoubtedly but for me worth every penny

David Bonsall's Ring Flight Revolution is, in my view, perfect. Maybe this is too, I haven't seen it, so I can't say, but if you can afford RFR, buy that.

As those of you who know me will doubtless be aware, I've been CUPsing over this effect for well over a year now, and have come close on more than one occasion to caving in.

Long story short, thanks to Rufio's missing fob problem, I finally got one at a good price :D

I know the jingle-jangles have been mentioned, but I'm not really finding this an issue, so far; sure - *I'm* aware of it, but nobody else has noticed, which makes me think it's more of a 'magii's self-awareness' issue than anything else.

The accompanying DVD, with it's variation of routines (including the very nice Ring & String tute) is nicely-done, and more than adequate, and the supplied props are spot-on.

This isn't an effect that you'll be performing immediately, as a degree of practice and repitition is needed (at least 4-5 hours) to get everything smooth and fast, but one which is certainly more than worth the effort (in fact, I'm now kicking myself for not getting this sooner!)

The real bonus with Pro Flite is that you CAN (and almost certainly WILL) carry this on your own keys 24/7, with no problem.

As such, this little gem will be on my person permanently (along with my Bikes, Digital Dissolve, Super Sharpie, Sanctum 2 and Black's CTW), ready for any and all imprompteau performance ops that arise :D

I'm thinking of purchasing but want some reassurance that the key ring is actually gimmicked in some way...

I'm not fishing for methods here, it's just that, without some special feature, it is just a regular key ring. Moreover, if it is, it's exactly the type of key ring that Richard Osterlind uses and routined in his ring on key chain effect (the name of which escapes me) written up some time ago.

Some advice would be appreciated.

I think you'll be disappointed if that is what you are looking for. Pro-flite with ring on string is my favourite thing right now but the emphasis is on the performer. It has a gimmick, just not what you are after.

Holy thread resurrection Batman!

I recently picked this up, if anyone is struggling with noise issues then I suggest getting a few of those rubber key covers to slip over the round end of the keys on it. totally removed any jangling noises.
