Perhaps their conventional-tip bananas are just fine, but the sawtooth (also sometimes called z-tooth or, incorrectly, BFA) ones they offer are horrid cheap crap. The 95-cent PE ones are markedly better. Not all sawtooth ones are junk. For instance, I've seen some Audioquest ones that, while wretchedly overpriced, were at least sturdy.
I still have 8 or so unused ones, if someone with lower standards wants to buy them from me. Given my experience with the ones I have used, I'm not going to waste my time with them...
