    I have four Donnay Pro One's (2) Yellow and Blue & (2) Orange and Grey and all four say on them made in Belgium. I want to get one more only this time I want the 1993 version with the grey/purple/red color scheme. Was this version made anywhere else other than Belgium? THANKS.

    No, they had switched their manufacturing mainly to China at that point. Was hit or miss with the regular Pro One, the Ultimate Pro with that cosmetic, I've only seen made in China, the Pro One Internationals, were Belgium, and the rest of the line were made in China. Then came the big bankruptacy, then the first ressurection, and all was shifted to China.

    Just by chance, are you able to get yours Donnays strung anywhere. I cannot find a grommet for mine and the strings, I'm sure, are about to break.

    One set of grommets have broken the other three are all in good shape. If you want to replace them it is going to cost you $50-$60 dollars as that is how much I saw them going for on another website.
