The rack is from Puzzle Master's own series of wire puzzles and is packaged nicely in the usual plastic clamshell and the instructions are simply to remove the string with the two balls from the wire. It is very well made from 3mm Nickel plated wire and the string is of good quality. There has been one 4 star review left on the puzzle page which gave a glowing report and suggested that it was perfect for beginners to wire puzzles; a view I agree with. No other blogger has reviewed it yet. No solution is supplied but it can be downloaded from here if you need it.
I have to say that I found this one quite easy (but probably only because I have done so many now) - I got the string off in about 3 or 4 minutes and then has a little panic because (as is usual) I couldn't remember what I had done and struggled to put it back together. I did manage to link it up again but each time the string was looped the wrong way through the puzzle! It must have taken me about 15 minutes to find exactly the right twist to link it back up. The reassembly is actually very counter-intuitive and, I think, really quite a nice sequence of moves.

This puzzle is a bargain at $10 - it won't keep the expert busy for long but it is still fun to do for them because the reassembly is so unexpected. Everyone else will find it a nice challenge and will enjoy it a lot.
