    haha...definitely!!! so Yonex are made in Asia..just to clear things up

    there are some wilsons (6.0 85) made in Chicago, but the newer wilsons are made in China. Babolats are made in Taiwan i believe. Head rackets are made in both Austria and the Czech Republic

    I just checked my apd's and they don't say. I know the company is french but it is highly doubtful they were actually made there.

    Almost all the racquets sold by most all the major marketers are now made in China.

    It was a long time ago that Wilson made any rackets in Chicago. The 6.0-85 is made i China nowadays like most other rackets..
