In my experience (and I both wear tekhelet and sell it online), the second point made is very true: I have tried so hard, in London, to just show people the info, but they won't even look at it! I haven't really heard the 5th point that much, but I see how it could make sense.
When I was a soldier is Israeli army (about 7 years ago) I remember they (Ptil Tcheles) were selling it with 50% discount to soldiers. So, if you have a soldier-friend you can ask him to buy one for you. Another trick is as follows. If you make Tcheles by the opinion of Rambam you can buy a Tcheles of Raavad (same price) and split it to two sets of Rambam. ...

In regard to the color, i'ts interesting to note the the ...
Seeing as there is no known company making Murex trunculus besides Petil Techelet, and on the other hand even the discounted techelet from then (for soldiers) is 100nis, I doubt anything lower will be the real deal. If on the other hand, you are interested in squib "techelet", which btw according to the radzin chassidim (I have spoken to the person who ...
Going down the Bing list, and the Resellers list from P'til Techelet, it looks like "cheap techelet" is an oxymoron. There's a non-Jewish vendor calling himself "The Shoferman"who claims to have $20.99 "Original Blue" strings using snail dyes, but he also says the color runs--a good indicator that they are NOT real techelet dyes, as the comments point out. ...
