The first doctrinaire puzzle where all axes don't meet in a single point but in two different ones.
Pentastick is based on an idea by David Pitcher and enhanced by Eitan Cher, Anthony Villaveiran and Carl Hoff. Conventional twisty puzzles have all turning axes going through a single origin. Not for this puzzle, which has two origins. Each half of the puzzle alone plays like a simplified version of the Pentagonal Prism. However, as the two halves exchange pieces, the puzzle as a whole is much harder.
It has some interesting properties since it is doctrinaire, not assymmetrical (compared with a pentagonal prism) but not all gaps between pieces can be directly used for immediate twists.
