    I just aquire one each of these racquets and wondering if the one made in Austria is "better" than the Czech Republic made one. Is the quality control better in one factory over the other? Thanks

    As I understand it, the Czech factory finished frames moulded in Austria... meaning, applied paint and graphics, fitted grommets, fitted pallets, grip collars (if spec'ed), butt caps, grips, and packaged for sale. This, because Czech labor was a little cheaper than Austrian. Finished product QA/QC was good, though; in my opinion comparable to that in Austria.

    Any other comments on quality control and overall better grade of work between these two factories? Thanks
