Where are Rome Boards Made?

I was under the impression that they were made in Canada. But when I got my 2012 Garage Rocker is said that it was made in Taiwan. Really disappointed in Rome. I'm guessing that this could possibly just mean the graphics. I'm not sure; anybody know?

Is it the right board for you?

If so enjoy, any factory any where could make a crap board or a good board. Depends on the way its run and the quality control.

It's the quality of the board they're worried about. To be fair though they make just as good boards as anybody else. I'm not upset because of that though, I'm mad because they act like they're different from the rest and bash corporate overseas companies like Burton and then there they are shipping boards across the Pacific.
