" Whats the deal with USFA? Did I miss something. Are they going out of business?"
Seemingly so, judging from internet scuttlebutt (in forums like this including more specialty forums, with some posters with reportedly "direct" or close second-hand connections) as well as USFA's increasingly sparse catalog of products on their website. That and no denials from USFA itself or even attributed to anonymous staffers. Strictly from a business point of view, one would think that there'd be some statement to quell the rumor mill if 'tweren't true..
Again, very sad if true. Top quality and made in America.
