Sorry to make you disappoint, I am a TV fan, not a patriot.
Due my experiences of using internet and forums for 30 years up to date, your text analysis, this indicates a mixture of generic information’s and bitter because neither within 2019 China is ready to deliver a proper made eyepiece, with out it eyecup to fall apart in a few years’.
According my book, any Europe boys using Chinese assembly lines they are blacklisted.
In Europe we are not feel desperate regarding eyepieces availability, the market of used this is full of Russian made optics and of Japanese ones among with several Olympus Japan binoculars’ which their eyepieces can be removed.
I would be willing to offer far more detailed thoughts, but Google this is copying any dot that I am typing every two minutes.
From the other hand it is an interesting phenomenon, hobbyists to start dogfights in favor of eyepieces, and astronomers them selves’ to not bother to award best eyepiece of the year? Or those to define which eyepiece this is made according to high standards’?
There is a Greek saying, that in the kingdom of blind people, the one with a singe good eye he must be declared as King.
I do disagree if he is a Chinese.
I might change my opinion when all Chinese brands start to offer eyecup replacements’ which they will not fall apart by causing eyepiece limited life-cycle.
