In years past I would have taken much longer to solve, but I am beginning to think like the designers after collecting just about every difficult Hanayama puzzle that exists. This one is definitely a challenge even now, and is already one of my favorites. Nice crafting and aesthetic feel, and the concept is similar to Cylinder for solving, which is also a favorite. I had to wait a couple of weeks to get it in the mail, and was excited to get it during a frozen day in North Dakota, with winds at 40 MPH and actual temps down to -15 degrees F. Can't lose with this puzzle, it is a must for any serious Hanayama fan.
Indeed solving the puzzle looks simple once you do it. I don't believe this puzzle is level 6 (10 here) difficulty. It is not harder than Cast Cylinder, for example. I like it though, because if one doesn't go "infinitely", they'll just give up one of the most satisfying solutions.
