Do you have a link to the Quiver wallet you're talking about.

I see a few different wallets.

There's the quiver card to wallet by Patrick Kuhn, but I'm thinking you mean the Quiver (or Quiver+?) by Kelvin Chow.

I think by adding extra keys and even the recommended clasp the ring would go unnoticed by spectators, and the appearance in a spectators hand is always an extremely powerful and memorable effect.

I like the Quiver idea but I think it looks better on paper whereas the ring appearing in the specs hand would have more impact in real life.

Yes Bill for spectators at gigs I will certainly at times put the keys in another persons hands and other times do the quiver and or other approaches . There are loads of great options for this gimmick performance wise imo Gaz 🙂

I agree Gaz, having options is always a good thing.

The misdirection is massive to load as they are squeezing the wallet open and tipping out the contents (expecting to see their ring) as they do this you casually load the ring and now you are clean to retrieve the keys from your back pocket! Love this ring flite!

I know how this works and am very excited to receive it as I have a very unusual use for it (a mentalism effect rather than a ring flight). Been just over a week in the post so hoping it will land this week Smile

Stay Safe!

As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

Michael,

I received mine in Edinburgh today, I'm sure yours will not be far behind. It was delivered by Hermes.

A quick review of Flite - earlier in the thread I had a bit of a moan about how the keys appear to sit at an unnatural angle - however positive comments about the loading etc. convinced me to give it a go, so I ordered one. I must say I'm really impressed with this. The snagging issue discussed does happen in the jeans I am wearing, but not in my normal performance suit. I now own four different ring flights - Flite, Pro-Flite by Nick Einhorn, Ring Flight Revolution by Dave Bonsall, and an old leather key case version that Mark Leveridge used to sell. Flite has the fastest, cleanest load out of the four, but has the slight disadvantage that it is not as examinable as the Pro-Flite or Ring Flight Revolution.

The trailers on Ellusionist are not at all misleading - spectators can hold the keys as displayed in the trailer, and even if they are handing the loaded key to you open handed (assuming you gave them your house keys to hold as security for their ring) I can't see this being an issue. The tutorial is hosted on the MagicStream website, and is cut into bite-sized logical sections. The tutorial is very good - Tom Elderfield teaches it very well. Only two negatives - the vanish section could have been a bit better for beginners. A simple French Drop vanish is taught, however not the vanish he uses on the two ladies in the bar, where he asks one of the ladies to hold on to his wrist. Anyone with any experience will know what he is doing here, but for beginners or those newer to magic may feel a little short changed that this isn't covered. The second, and only other negative in my opinion is that the tutorial is not downloadable. You can download the trailers, but not the tutorial.

For those wondering what the type of keyring is called that Tom recommends adding to the gimmick (it isn't necessary for the trick, it's just a display idea), if you look for a belt clip keyring or bolt snap keyring on Amazon or eBay you'll find them no problem.

All in all, I'm very glad I picked this up. If anyone is on the fence, it's real is a no-brainer for the price. I think Ellusionist have priced this very fairly.

I have been saying this to several magic friends who I Skype with weekly...Flite is hands-down the best overall value of any magic prop that I've purchased this year. It is also one of the few items that I can honestly say that I'll be keeping in my pocket (to-be-ready) for any casual performing situations that arise.

Yep. A part of my everyday carry for sure. Clean, quick and easy. Kinda think it's a must-have if this effect interests you.

Can anyone point me in the direction to how I can see the tutorial for this. I have the product, but it didn't list a website or anything to view a tutorial.


Thanks,

It's on the box.

It's not protected, anyone can view the instructions. Same thing they did with the Stack watch (and probably others).

Even turns up in a Google search.

I might have gotten a dud gimmick because mine broke. I haven't been rough with it all all. Just normal practice and carrying it in my pocket as you would expect. I contacted support and I'm confident they will make it right. It's disappointing just the same.

Hi,

Got mine yesterday and the idea is great.
However, I am a bit concern regarding carrying the key's in working position, on your back pocket may cause to break it.
I think I will use it with additional metal hanger
But certainty it will replace my ring flight
