  5. In Current Affairs. Is it too much to hope the OP has a finely-tuned sense of irony?
     
  6. The only reason that they're being counterfeited is because they're so bloody expensive. How much is a 12 pack nowadays? £10 or so. Has the price of rubber skyrocketed in the past few years or what?

    It's the same with razor blades, we're being robbed on a daily basis.
     
  7. £10 for durex compared to 18 yrs of being skint, followed by in many cases CSA screwing your life up.

  8. Damn Johnny Foreigner. Bastards
     
  9. True, but how much can they possibly cost to make?
     
  10. I agree the actual manufacturing costs may well be low. To be fair I'm surprised the Chinese have taken this long to knock these out as they copy everything else.

    Supply & demand will always be there, along with counterfeit gear soon following.

    There's nothing can substitute for a catchy brand name.

    Its probably the testing and the plant that costs. I personally wouldn't buy a brand that WASN'T extensively tested. For that matter I only ever bought Durex Avanti cos very few others fit!
