Has anyone tried one of those "Brain String" puzzles from the Rubik's shop yet? Is it any good?

I saw it once in a shop here (Melbourne, Australia) before it appeared on the Hessport Rubik's shop, but now the shop doesn't have any and claims to have never heard of it! I can't remember how much they were either :-(

Thanks,
Rob.

Recently I bought one. I think it's a great game, anyhow I like to play it a lot. And this puzzle looks extremely nice.

I just bought one here in Hong Kong for about $138HK. (US$18) Not a cheap puzzle. I've only played with it once on the train. It's too fragile to play with around my daughter. The elastic pieces would break if she got ahold of it. I hope you can find one.

I carry these in stock if anyone can't find them in Australia.

I found them in a toy store in Berkeley, CA for $13 US which is the cheapest I've seen them. If anyone wants one, I can get you one at my cost + shipping.

It is a neat puzzle, different than anything else in the database. Maybe a little easy but there are so many ways to play with it. You can tangle it into a giant knot or even make symmetrical knots which look cool. Overall I think its worth the money.
