I often see frame (like Graphite Pro/Master, just for example) with USA flag and little Head USA writing on the throat arms, but with standard silver sticker on the butt-cap saying "Made in Austria". How is it possible? Just because of when Head stopped its production in the USA (in what year exactly?) the continued to put the USA flag on rackets for that market for a certain period (months? Years?), just for marketing reasons, even though they were produced in Austria?
Yes, it was for marketing purposes that the USA flag was on the side of the racquet. HEAD Stopped production in USA in 1988.
