Default Rome Manufacturing

Rome still making their boards in thailand? Is there a site that lets you know where each company produces their sticks?

Both my Romes say that they are handmade in austria, my GNU is made in the USA as are the libtechs.
Is there any one in particular you want to know? Because I have quite a few boars lying around here so I can check.

Haven't seen any Rome Boards that were made in Thailand, seems to me generally the lower ends are made in Taiwan and higher end ones in Austria.

Do alot of manufacturers produce boards in multiple locals to set price points?

Look on the board. It says on each in the little black box. Garage Rocker is made in Thailand and a few others, but most are made in Austria I believe.

Some models are made at I think it's either Playmaker or Matrix and some are made at GST. It says right on the deck the country of origin. For the record Rome was never made in Thailand.

My 10/11 Graft Rocker was made in Thailand- thats why I thought a majority of their boards were built there.
