I like this item a lot but did not find the immediate use for it in my repertory.. So mine is for sale on this forum, brand new.

Pro Light by Marc Antoine is coming to a dealer near you soon. Sort of a cross between D'lite and thumb tip flash that we already love. Any reviews invited.

I just bought one of these - probably the last one available anywhere- 2 weeks ago, online. Fortunately it was considerably less than $149.
I have to say, it's really neat, and very well thought out; I haven't often seen the kind of planning and ingenuity that went into this. Just the method of charging via USB -that is, the custom connectors- made me chuckle, it was a brilliant way to keep the size down.
Also brilliant (hah! twice the pun) is the built-in 1 second delay. This allows you to get your hands in a better position for the actual flash so as not to give it away.

That said, there are certain situations this wouldn't work well in, but what utility is perfect? If you're doing heavy sleight of hand for example, the original fism might be a better solution as it leaves your hands clean and unobstucted, but that method is a lot of work to set up.
For plain simplicity and quick set up, even something impromptu you can carry anywhere with you, it's just mega cool and well made. Or was. I take it this is discontinued for an improved design?
Just hanging out with the rest of my fellow dregs.

I gave my review on Thumb Tip Flash above.

As for the PRO LIGHT, please read below Smile

This is a very bright RED light dlite...with charging function...similar to TT FLASH....I got from Marc Antoine a few weeks ago

However I am not sure if Marc sought any permission from Rocco/Juan Mayoral (They are BOTH the inventor of dlite)

IF there is none...then in my view, I feel the China made version is better cos it has 6 BRIGHT HIGH Density light (RED, Pink, Blue, Yellow, White & Green) ALL build into 1 single TT

Whereas Marc version comes in only 1 colour, RED or Blue & thety are using the same light blub (the high desnity as the China version which has SIX lights)

Though I dislike China entices in copying & quality....BUT their 6 colour TT really impressed me.

I currently using BOTH Marc & China version in my act & they really put the old dlite (the usual LED to shame)

Hope this helps Smile

A friend gave it to me...I am crazy with LED Light stuffs...I am just giving my honest review Smile

Meanwhile, I am curious if Marc has any approval from Juan Mayoral/Rocco to make his dlite AKA prolight ?

This little gizmo is just spectacular - it works incredibly well and, for me, is simpler to use than my FISM Flash. I am delighted with the purchase.

Since this has been out for over 2 years now I have a question about the battery. Has anyone's battery gone bad? Is the battery replaceble when it does go bad?
Thanks,
Steve

Phil:
You might try to connect Marc via this website : http://www.paris-magic.com/
I know they are in touch with Marc Antoine. Marc is a great creator but he's also known to be tricky to deal with..

Steve: This item uses a rechargeable battery.. I've had no problem so far (about 3 years) but I don't use it very often.

One sure bet is that rechargable batteries eventually fail. Does anyone know if this can be replaced?

Hi,
I just would to rectify what I wrote.. My weak knowledge of the english language made me screw up.

Marc Antoine is an extremly fair and gentle guy and I didn't mean any bad comment.

When you get in touch with him, I'm sure he'll do his best to help.
