    Yeah, I would say the odds of anything that is shipping from China having been made in the U.S.A. is pretty slim.
    My humble setup...

    ...is no more.

    I think it means the cable is a US version rather than being made in the US?

    When you order goods made in China, they ask you how you'd like it labeled.
    Made in USA. AQ, Kimber, ETC. They really don't care, as long as your check clears.

    Shenzhen, China? The Shenzhen-Dongguan corridor of PREMIER CHINESE manufacturing? lol

    Yeah, made in the U.S.A. direct from China?

    As someone above said, "everything is good as long as the checks clear".

    BTW, I've been to those areas a number of times. Have you guys heard of the Hong Kong wives phenomenon associated with it?
