This looks like it has the potential to be a very cool gimmick that could potentially be used in many ways. Could possibly be used similar to Sankey's 3 Ring Circus?

I owned Flight 101 but I returned it so quickly that honestly the only thing I remember about it is that I thought it was ridiculously overpriced half-baked junk.
Hopefully, this will be more to my liking. But I’ll still wait for some reviews.

I bought it. I’ve been looking for a reliable ring flight that can take a beating. Hopefully this is the answer.

I saw this today and I was very impressed by the performance video. Being a card/coin guy, I have almost zero experience with these gimmicks. I remember owning a ring flight gimmick years ago, probably one of the early prototypes that came out and it wasn't very good. I think I'm going to take the plunge on this. Not sure if anyone can answer this here (if not feel free to PM me), does this work based off of a reel? Thanks!

I thought the same thing. It’s not my account either. I also have a shipping confirmation.

Nice ending for a ring and string routine, you have that time misdirection when you do the Clifton ring move part of the ring and string routine

This looks amazing! I use Departure by Chris Smith and have had great success with it. I do however only use it when I'm wearing the correct clothing or if I'm in a noisy environment.

After seeing the full uncut performance of Flite and understanding what needs to happen, I think this may suit my performance style more and I'll be more confident when using someone's expensive ring. I also get the feeling that the gimmick does make the entire effect seem more impossible as the ring isn't attached to something with a clasp/latch.

The only thing holding me back may be shipping to South Africa :- |

Did you ever use Ring Flight Revolution? I can't remember how many times I have used RFR and it still is going strong and never failed. So well made.

Yes, the $9 flat rate applies to the UK too. Covid is still causing delays, though - on the US side there's delays in the ISCs as there is very limited space on the freight flights on the UK side there are delays in customs processing.

No I’ve never been a fan of the ring being clipped onto a carabiner on a key ring. I think Flight may be exactly what I’ve been searching for Smile

Ah, ok. Do you not like using the clip due to worrying it might damage the ring or is it more about you think the effect is diminished with using the clip? Because I can tell you that the clip makes no difference to the audience. People go absolutely crazy and I mean CRAZY over it when your keys come out and they see their ring clipped to their keys.

I do think Flite looks fabulous as well!

I think for me (speaking to that issue), I never liked the semi-awkward moment to clip it with reels. Always looked rushed and awkward when I saw others do it.

So I always felt guilty myself. But yes, ring flight Revolution is the king of them all.

But I got this as well.
