I haven't used this yet for ring flight because it the set up isn't working very well for me yet. But I've worked out an awesome routine where I link and unlink my key with a specs keys. Haha

It has to be the easy ring flite in history so I cannot see why you are having a problem ? Gaz 😊

I am using Flite with Rattled by Dan Hauss. Heat is off the load as spectator is playing with the bottle top when this happens. They can also hear the ring under the top after key ring is brought into play, excellent combination

Rattled is a good combo and I've tried it with a man's ring. Since this is a zero tension "safe" Ring flite I don't feel nervous about using an expensive ladies ring with a thin band but I wouldn't want to rattle it so I've been using a Vanishing Ring Hanky. It gives you the same delay and no heat on the load because they think they're still holding their Ring and they can feel it.

Yes good point but thatís the same as taking the ring with one hand (French drop) and loading and giving them your keys to hold as an insurance policy. There is no heat on the load as they still think their ring is in your closed fist at that point. With my locked variation Iíve added to this there is no worries about them holding the keys as there is nothing they can possibly find. Really great effect this and so so easy which ever route you choose to go down Gaz 😊

Are you saying there is no difference between telling them their ring is inside you're closed fist and them actually holding it themselves while you're trying to do the dirty work?

I don't think its necessary because the standard routine does work well but it is not the same. Just wanted to post a fun way I've been varying things. Take it or leave it.

No real difference at all ( infact the hanky is slightly weaker) as I have and used the any ring hanky by Richard Sanders and itís great but why are you covering it in a hanky for them to hold? They would surely just hold it uncovered right? So my way if done well they truly believe itís in my hand and the natural moment of grabbing my keys is a natural movement . Covering their ring with a hanky works well but is more unnatural as there is a why there imo? For that reason I think itís a good way but not the best way. You canít go wrong with this effect whichever way you choose do it imho Gaz 😊

Why close your hand into a fist after the French Drop? You would just hold it on your open palm uncovered right? There's no way using the hanky is weaker than a french drop. Most laymen will guess that if it wasn't in one hand then it was in the one that you used to grab the keys, no matter how clean your french drop is, unless they assure themselves that its actually in another place, which the hanky helps to accomplish.

Iím not arguing with you but I disagree. I think the handkerchief is a good second best for sleight of hand and to be fair I think you know that really if you are being totally honest with yourself Gaz 😊

Bit late to the party, but performed this for the first time this weekend.

Iíve added two house type keys plus a large hinged clip (called a carabiner) set up as follows;

Small key - largest key, next key, carabiner, plastic covered key

The largest key has a wide body section which helps in my handling as follows.

I love the handing of the keys to a spectator to hold, and this set up letís me display the keys openly whilst holding the carabiner - the ring when loaded sits right in the middle of the key set and the large key hides the ring perfectly from the spectator front on. I simply ask them to hold the keys with the carabiner poking out the top of their closed fist.

To perform, as the ring is loaded the keys fall into your right hand and itís a simple matter of locating the large carabiner with your right thumb and then dropping the keys - the ring is hidden right in the centre of the cluster. Then itís handed to the spec to hold.

Itís a killer! Love it. Hope this all makes senseÖ.

Is the gimmick invisible to the audience? Can it be done at close up?

Thanks for sharing this Sean! Love the idea of the large key! (and I think I see what you mean)

If one day you happen to video yourself performing it Iíd love to see that! Smile
