I guess Penn has stopped manufacturing in the U.S. since I couldn't find it on Google.
I am still running through my back stock of USA Penn Pro. I got a great cash deal on several cases. Teaching pro friends (who used to use USA Pro Penn) have told me the new Marathons are not as good, but I have not had to use them yet. I have been rationing my stash for matches. As a matter of principle, I refuse to pay the same money for balls made at a fraction of the cost to pad Head/Penn's profits. Plus, it has gone to being a mass market ball. Not insignificantly, their closing of the Phoenix factory to make products at near-slave labor wages left a very bad taste in my mouth.
