Can we start a list of glasses still being made in the USA? I'll update this post to create a list.
Pit Boss II
All X Metals
the carbon fibre portions of the c six were made out of the uk.
I thought pb 2 was NOT us made.
afaik its not... and BTW Xmetals arent made anymore so they arent on here either
And neither is the original Pit Boss.
I don't think there is a way to figure this out honestly, because most boxes now are saying "Assembled in USA" or "Made in China" on the metal frames.
As far as I've seen, the only styles that are new and has said "Made in USA" is the Big Taco. I noticed a custom Gascan at the local store the other day without "Made in USA" printed on it so it looks like most frames are being made overseas and assembled in the states.
Does it really matter though? If you didn't know otherwise there wouldn't be a difference, plus there doesn't seem to be any noticeable difference in quality (again, I'm not saying it's different or better) but time will tell. Wire frames were being made in China for a long time until they recently changed the labeling policy last year.

Minus All X-Metals, since they aren't being made anymore. ...and that leaves us with nothing on the list.
Batwolf, Gascan, Dispatch2, Fuel Cell, If its not made in USA im not buying it.
