That's one of the things I find highly amusing about certain Chinese goods - copycatism. This is a good example. There are many others, especially in consumer electronics (and it's not just the Chinese who do this..).

The thing is, is it just this one company using that logo, or did a bunch of Chinese manufacturers get together and decide to come up with their own "Tension" standard? I'll betcha most of these Chinese rubbers are OEM'ed by two or three large companies, as it seems the German ones are. Or at least, the top sheets and sponge are OEM'ed, there may be more involved with assembling the things. You might even have one or two large ones actually casting blocks of foam, which they sell to the two or three rubber OEM outfits for slicing and trimming.

Oh, by the way.. I just came across this (while looking for rubber glue). I've been laughing hysterically for the last 5 minutes.

Cheapest "tensor" ever????

(Zoom in and see...)

There's this dubious claim of "Made in Germany". These go for $10 a pair of sheets... :lol:

The cover:

Can't find it on the ITTF list, no ITTF logo, but note the "ITTF" numberical code.

AHA!!!!!!!! I see!!!

Now I know why all those Palio rubbers have "Biotech" sponge. I doubt they make their sponge from algae.

Nice catches, Iskandar. I also noted that on the back of that wrapper, "rubber" turned into "runner". Must be a case of the "sausage finger syndrome" (seeing that N and B are adjacent on a regular keyboard).

Not sure, but I guess there could be a connection to that "handmade sausage plastic enema sausage funnel sausage" you found earlier. :D

Note the similarities in the logos, too:

Incidentally - doesn't the BIOS logo look like one of those Picasso abstract portraits?

The "sausage enema" thing was bad, but this is worse!

I suppose now we know why some people are buying these things (to make Rover sausages). But I always thought "po" was Australian slang for the John... :lol:

Hi haggisv :)

I could give it a try if silver doesnt want to, i guess you or someone could correct me if i make a mistake. Im not exactly sure about the generations, but i have a decent idea and i can figure rest out. I guess we can be decently confident silver is right about the ones his posted so far?

And thank you guys for the Victas 15 reviews, looking good.

That would be awesome, thank you! Yes happy to help! I don't the generations matter too much. Yes I think the ones Silver posted are likely to be correct.
