Bunch of them listed on Amazon to experiment and examine. What are the chances of them not being from the same factory that makes the chinook ones?

Based on the photos - the Chinooks' do not have the rough surface and no drilling burrs. Chinook must be molding tendons in a form with the holes. So no, these knock-offs are not from the same factory floor.

Maybe. But to make a hole in rubber it is not drilled. Instead a sharp edge tube-like borer is used.

Because available locally (yes!) I tried a Bic tendon. Well so far it's been outlasting any other brand! I'm going onto 1.5 years and it only has a slight crack in it near a screw hole.

The Bic material looks shinier maybe a touch more plasticy. Possibly they work better in humid environment?
