Kevin Sadler wrote about it:

“Ad van der Schlag designed the early version of the cup and sent the initial design to Alfons Eyckmans to see if it could be improved and made into a puzzle with a much higher level. The current version is the improved one managed with Alfons’ typical skill. This last puzzle in the current release is one that I have not had time to solve yet. It is absolutely stunning made from American Walnut and Cherry. It will be a very tough puzzle to dismantle – I love these specially shaped burrs but the combination of rings, boards with burrsticks through the centre do make for a tremendously difficult challenge. It has a level of to take apart and will include quite a few sideways movements of the rings as well as the burrsticks. I always seem to struggle to find the appropriate shifts and then get lost. I look forward to trying this new one as I have never seen a burr from Ad before.”
