Decent, cheap eyepieces ?

I saw these for sale on e.bay a while back and viewed them with some suspicions given their price:

But it appears that they are decent eyepieces when teamed up with medium to slower focal ratio scopes:

I think 12.50 would make me wonder if there was glass in it. I seem to remember a good while back you told me that lens caps for our eyepieces were 6 quid.

Alan.

The eye lens of these is made of a type of plastic Alan and it's just a 3 element desgign (glass doublet field lens + a plastic aspheric eye lens). Whats interesting is, despite the price and the materials used, they seem to perform quite well if the scope is on the slower side.

Maybe they would be a better bet for inclusion as stock eyepieces than the ones currently used ?

You might as well get a review from me cause currently I don't have any EP so I am thinking about buying 2 or maybe even 3.

They are sure as hell better than the cheap crappy stock EPs that were provided with my scope.
