That site looks too similar to aliexpress, which is well known for fakes. Also, you can find there Tenergy for 15$ or even less. That can't be original.

I bought a fake tenergy a couple of years back. It doesn't look the same when you open the package. Also it at least it was a normal stiff chinese rubber it would still be worth the money, but that thing had a negative throw, it was the most horrible thing i had glued to a blade.

I'm looking to get into some tenergy, and am willing to pay the full price. However I am wondering if you by chance know of a site that has them at a lower price?  I'd be going from FH: Donic Acuda P3, BH: Xiom Vega Europe. Where those are both soft rubbers, would I be wrong for thinking T05 fh (maybe T05fx) and T64fx for bh?

There is no company that controls access to their product line more than Btfly.  If it is more than a couple of dollars less than the usual high price, be very suspicious.

Sometimes it is too obvious that the product is a fake. A friend had bought a sheet of Tenergy from our coach. The surface looked too shiny for a Tenergy sheet, the logo looked funny, but the funniest thing was that while the package was for a sheet of Tenerfgy 64, the sheet itself had a "Tenergy 05" logo on it........LOL

He did get a refund....

All of them get the items from taobao. If you do not mind taking the risks, you can order the items from taobao directly.

Try Palio Blitz 42 instead for 30 dollars. You'll thank me later...:-)

Check up your rubber genuinety.

Pocket-size adviser, "candid pal" to tell you if the 70 dollar rubber sheet is a genuine Butterfly ptoduct or a fraudulent alteration.

Is it possible, some of these cheap Tenegies are Factory rejects that they wouldn't dare sell at the $70 normal price ?

No. There is a difference between a forgery and a rejected product. The knock offs are made to look like the real thing. And it is a fraudulent practice.
