You won’t find a product anywhere in the world that has less than 0.14 % dissatisfied customers when they have sold that many units . It’s an incredible statistic seeing that when you can hardly buy even one deck of bikes without finding one dodgy white border . Best wishes Gaz 😊

Ok I just got Flite over the weekend and I’m blown away, this is a keeper! Incredibly simple and effective method, superb build quality and very good teaching. It’s already passed the wife test with flying colours and I can’t wait to try it at gigs, when I can. I’ve got some ideas on what to routine it with so I’m going to play with those. Too big thumbs up for this product.


Just received this as well, and would only add that the simplicity of this is absolutely elegant.

Sorry if this question has been discussed, but can an un-gaffed duplicate be purchased so you can hand it out after you remove the spectator's ring? People have asked to looksie.

This is a brilliant ring flight gaff. 5 stars.

I would think it would be easy to make one. The item that provides cover can be replaced with any other item that is similar and cheap enough. Or.... Buy two Flites?

What’s easy with JB Weld?
Sorry, we can’t read your mind to know what you are replying to.

Are you referring to repairing a broken unit or making an ungimmicked one?

AFA an ungimmicked dupe there is nothing to “make”. You just need a standard key ring and matching keys. There are many tiny locks with keys available on Amazon and other sites to source the small key. You wouldn’t need an exact match because nobody will notice a small difference because they are obviously not seen side by side.

Easy to fix if broke and easy to make a new one.

Flite by Ellusionist is the best ring Flite I’ve seen. Highly recommended.

Here’s a video of my son Ryland performing it for his YouTube channel. It’s a really commercial prop and to quote Ryland ‘super, super, super easy!’

This is a great product. Here's how I plan to use...

Display ring on open hand, pick up with opposite hand for closer look. B*b* sw**ch with a secretly palmed key(small) into the other hand, mention the need for a magic wand, reach for sharpie in back pocket, quickly load while reaching for pen. Three taps, reveal key. Pause, explain that if a key is in your hand... put down sharpie, show hands empty, bring out the key ring.

Got the basic mechanics down, won't show the wife until the load action is super-smooth.

It’s easier doing the same idea with the quiver purse as per Daren earlier on in the thread . Still a great idea though and well motivated for the load imo Gaz 👍😊

Thanks for the reply Gaz. I don't have the quiver purse, but know what it does. How would that routine play out?

I like the idea of the bb switch because if done casually/softly (I drop the key at the moment the ring moves out of site as opposed to the exaggerated toss motion), there was s a nice retention of vision as the 'ring'(key) falls.

In my opinion, it looks better if you can show the hand empty before you slowly go behind your back to retrieve the key ring, hence the magic wand/pen. If performed with just a false transfer/load/reveal (sorry Raylan, still love your videos!), it's less of a 'how did it get there', and more of a 'how did it get on there' trick.

One more thought for the casually dressed performer... if you have a hooded pullover sweatshirt with 'connected pockets' in the front, you can have it look like the pen came from one pocket, the key ring from another. Can't say it makes a world of difference, but it's a nice subtlety.

Gaz- you mentioned previously that you adjusted your gimmick somehow so it was examinable? Can you pm me the details please?

Oops. Meant Ryland, not Raylan. I guess I've been watching 'Justified' too much.

Well, I've rehearsed my presentation of this over and over and over...(and over!). Got to where it looks great/flows smoothly, decided to show the wife. Like most of our partners she's suffered through many a trick and knows a lot about how these things work... she was blown away. The reveal of the key in my hand totally took her by surprise, revealing the ring on the keys left her speechless.
