    No one is saying that Gosen is not a Japanese company. What is said here is that their racquets are made in China.

    That is correct. Racket head is made in China, Ryoga series shaft is made in Japan and developed by Gosen, Seiko and Toray (world's largest carbon manufacturer), then it's shipped to China for assembling. All quality checks comply with Japanese standards.

    Not too sure about the other brands, but the paint work on the Gosen rackets reflects the high quality of their rackets. I think several stores in Australia currently sells them too (not this model yet though)

    It's ashame that their marketing isn't that great though.
