Reynolds.

I'm no insider but this is fairly common knowledge.

Their website used to say "This is not a warmed-over Ouzo Pro", which
always struck me as defensive. ;)

Heh... I'm wondering what's "wrong" with an Ouzo Pro...

I think they were just trying to justify the higher price when compared to
the Ouzo Pro. So they could say "for the extra money you get this cool
Seven logo", or "it's an improved, designed by us, made by Reynolds fork".
I actually don't like the fatter look and matte black finish compared to my
regular Ouzo Pro. The new Easton EC-90 SLX has been getting great reviews
and weighs 100 grams less. We may have a new champion. Of course the
Easton forks have a bit of a billboard look these days.

That billboard look is what all the wanabe pro racers like. Easton likes it
because it provides them with better than free advertising.

Well, if this is true, maybe SE Asian production CF is finally
starting to bridge technology the gap (Giant notwithstanding).

Does Giant produce in Southeast Asia? I thought it was all in Taiwan.

Yes. That's what I meant. I guess my geography is off a bit.
