This cube is coming out in the 40th anniversary year of Uwe Meffert first designing the Original Pyraminx. (which has sold millions)
This is a well made rotational puzzle, the layers move very smoothly. It is not to be used for speedcubing but it is still a nice puzzle to work with. The stickers are very high quality as you would expect from a Mefferts puzzle.
The reason why it is called Professor Pyraminx is because the original pyraminx has 3 layers, like a Rubik's Cube and this one has 5 layers, like a Rubik's Professor Cube.

This puzzle turns excellently (every layer of it) and it's an excellent update on the classic Pyraminx. The tips are a bit hard to turn - that's because the part below them can slide up and down on the core's arm, so when the puzzle is fully assembled all the parts are pushing the two pieces together, creating friction. But don't worry - you only need to turn them 4 times per solve anyway.
It's got a good shape to hold in your hand, and it's a really great puzzle to bring on a trip: solving it doesn't feel repetitive at all, and it doesn't have any of the "parity" situations seen on its cubic cousin (the 5x5x5 Professor Cube).
If you like this puzzle, you'll probably also enjoy the Vulcano, since it's another Pyraminx family member.

Pretty much everything about this puzzle is perfect. The stickers and plastic are high quality and it turns really smoothly :D. The only ''flaw'' is, on my puzzle one of the tips wont turn at all, it's like it's glued on there :/ . I'm still giving it 5 Stars because that ''flaw'' is probably only on my puzzle.
