I think if there is a way to pinpoint at some fake tenergy showing cake/porous sponge and get always the same then a player can go for it but what if the variation between a rubber to the next is always so significant one has to adjust strokes every 3 months?
Most Tenergy users I know can make their real Tenergy last more than 6 months; some play with one sheet for a year; the record belongs to that JPEN player (usatt 2000 level or close; all strokes with the same rubber) who changes every year playing 3 to 4 times a week.
I will never buy again any BTY rubber for personal reasons but for those who do not care about a brand or another, the decision to buy real Tenergy or not is based on the question: "what is the value of the confidence that I have a reliable product presenting the same characteristics from one rubber to the next?". I say that value is very high.

+1.
Agree with this.
Consistency is very important.
I am using IQUL rubbers now (i bought 8 total from same batch) but some post made in other thread say that this rubber became different in other batch and i became worried.

I am afraid it's too strict a requirement to ask of those knock-off factories, when even a genuine quality brand like Butterfly that claims "World Leading Quality" has trouble meeting that expectation.

While consistency may be the ultimate goal we all hope for in just about anything, in mass-production quantity has priority over quality.  The same goes for every thing in this world.  Take for example the eletronics, during its product lifecycle inside your gaming console the motherboard and the chips on it can go under multiple revisions that mostly involve simplification with one major purpose - to reduce the manufacturing costs while at the time increase production volume.

This applies to all brands, not just Butterfly.  Your best bet in getting the best quality in a product is probably starting with the second or third batch after its first release in the market, as the first batch can sometimes contain or reveal imperfections during production. This continues well into the first year after release while market share is building and anything after that is anyone's guess.
