I just saw this new "Ring Flight" advancement and was very surprised

Seems a little too good to be true, anyone have experience with this

Ok, first question. Is an undone cardigan, jacket required for the disappearance phase? I would think so.

Looks promising but would like to know how long reset takes.

Seriously - did nobody tell Peter Eggink?

Agree, does look promising. Just watch the demo and already I forgot if Peter said that the spectator can open the back?

After 5 dud releases in a row, can Peter finally pull off a winner?? Let’s hope.

Yes it does require a jacket or shirt of some sort

They can open the pack. However I don’t believe letting them keep it is wise

Mark T from Saturn Magic didn’t speak very highly of this on one on his recent lives. Mark is trust worthy and respectfully does speak honestly too.

Well I was afraid I’d be disappointed and it’s actually all right imo. I was surprised by the vanish phase, I wasn’t expecting that - not something I had seen before and I’ll most probably use it. It’s inspired by other systems that have been used in the past (Interlace by Richard Sanders, Rodrigo Romano’s Coin to Wallet or Cyclic Ring which I really like - I have actually modified Cyclic Ring to have the ring appear in my back pocket while only wearing a t-shirt) but I haven’t seen the actual vanish done like that: with this addition (the rest of the system is pretty much the same idea) there is no move (or hardly any) - you just cover the ring for a second and it vanishes. It’s that clean. No !@#$e transfer or waving of the hand, you literally just cover the ring and it’s done, just like in the video (and no it’s not a p**l).

You do need a shirt or a jacket to perform this and while the spectator could theoretically open the packet himself with some spec management they wouldn’t be able to keep it. I’m not sure what to think of the appearance in the candy pack. I think I was expecting something different - it does what it says though but I think I was expecting a system that would enable you to literally hand them the candy pack, having them inspect it and open it but it’s not that. You can relatively freely show it from all angles but they wouldn’t be able to handle it for too long. Still an interesting idea though.

Basically I wasn’t sure what to expect from the vanish (I even thought it might be edited on the video) and I was pleasantly surprised (even when receiving the gimmick I still didn’t guess how it worked) and I had other expectations for the appearance and it’s not what I thought. You also only get materials to gimmick one pack only but refills are very cheap and you can find them very easily. Making the gimmick is also really easy and quick.

Overall I quite like it, I’ll definitely use the vanish which I find quite clever (would be interested to know if he came up with that - also, in case some people wondering, the vanish is tailored for rings only, don’t get this if you expect to use it for coins), as for the appearance, honestly why not, it’s still quite interesting, I don’t think I’ll let them open the candy pack and I’ll probably do a switch in the end to let them keep a pack because let’s face it, they’ll probably want to have a look at it… but that’s optional of course.

Finally no comment on the presentation… I definitely won’t use his! Smile

Under 2-3 min. Probably under a minute once you’ve done it a few times. If you want to use this in walkaround type of situations you’d need to prepare as many packs as you want to do the trick. In that case (you already have the pack prepared), reset would take under 10 seconds.

I think you may have to be ready to switch the bag because the spectator may not want to eat the candies or all of them.

Can you use other candy packs that are on the market or even other little plastic packs ?

Thanks for this! Can you make it just appear in your pocket or elsewhere to make it appear somewhere else other than the candy wrapper?

Hey yes you can. What is supplied will only work with candy packs that have the same size as Skittles but once you know how to gimmick the pack it’s very easy (and cheap) to customise any other similar candy packs with different dimensions (there might be some limitations but aside from it has to fit in one of your pockets - it can be a big pocket - I can’t think of any other right now).

Yep! And in that case set-up is minimal (maybe about a minute) and there isn’t really any reset.

Thanks again for the helpful info! Just curious, do you prefer this over Cyclic Ring?
