read the reviews and the current/new version is not identical to the old version.
if they are made in the same factory at BC and the same rubber, then they can't be that magical (albeit BC straps are good).
i guess being mega-thick adds a few years to their longevity.
i'm not anti-isofrane ... i bought one and tried it out, but i didn't really like the super-thick strap. i prefer thinner straps. no big deal. if you like thick straps, then they are a very nice strap.
whether it is $100 or $30, i dont really care if i loved the design .. it is only $70 difference.
pity it wasnt a bit thinner :( .. if it was, then i would buy a couple.

When the production rate increases the mould gets worn, and mould flashes will likely get bigger, as the mould parts will not fit together just as good as they have earlier.
The cost of the mould is a big part of the production costs, and the mould is not likely to be replaced before it breaks down entirely, so you really can't say anything on how the visual quality of the straps will be like going forward.
Having said that, I might add that a rubber strap like that, or at least any of the other straps with PU, doesn't cost more than 5$ to produce depending on where in the world they are manufactured, and depending on how many cavities the mould has.
