Here is it.

An absolute highlight of my collection.

BTW: With an edge length of 215 mm (510 grams) it is my biggest twisty puzzle.

Many thanks to Mark for this great design.

What a monster! Is it finger trickable? :lol: I'm glad you didn't try to dye it yourself, it would have taken about 10 packets of Rit!

Tony, no. I don't solve the problem of internal misalignments.

Only if you turns along the equator line of the ball sometimes it is blocked. All other moves works fantastic.

It must be different to the 24 cube. By the 24 you can make a turn and you know it is blocked now.

Please add two midturn-images (for both types of axis) for this beautiful puzzle.

Only when you speak about the shape ... which one has to do in this case. Thank you for those images.
