    Blue one is rare. I think Bri, HCB and me have a photo blue.
    I was lucky enough to get Vibrant blue.
    third picture is my version of blue hat ^__^

    Kimguroo, my wife ruined her Arrow Up sample hat you gave me (it was too small for me, so I gave it to her, remember?)
    She got her hair colored and then went out and played on a hot Saturday morning and sweated her red hair coloring all over it!
    Yep, I've still got the Photo Blue and wear it on special occasions only. And I've got a rare white GHOAT with the gray under the bill. Right now as I'm typing I'm GHOATing the white gentleman courtesy of Stringertom.

    That's a nice blue on your hat! :)

    Must have missed Arrow Up developments...are they GHOATish and available? Colors? Size issues?

    I remember. actually you helped me to make better size hats haha.
    I also have Grey under bill. forgot the name of the swoosh. Have not even try both photo blue and vibrant. occasionally watch those hats nowadays haha. I think those three hats were not available to public.
    I don't see any new colors for TW hats anymore.

    [​IMG]

    I was inspired by TW hats and decided to make my own version.
    in the beginning, tried adapt many features from TW hats but I decided to
    make completely new kind of hats.

    it's slightly lighter than TW hats because of thinner materials and have sweatband like material inside.

    there are three colors blue, white and yellow.
    when I make proto type, I had size issue (Hat was too small) but HCB helped me to make better size hats.

    If you are interested in contact me.

    I can vouch for the Arrow-Up hats being really good substitutes for the ghoat.

    I think the arrow up blue needs to be a bit lighter, more like the photo blue color...

    In person the Arrow Up Blue is lighter than it looks in the pic just as photo blue is a little darker than shown.

    I want that Vibrant Blue to match my Vibrant Blue wristbands! :)

    Yet, much like the Photo Blue and White/Gridiron, they were never ever available to anyone anywhere, so I missed out! Enjoy it Kim, you should be wearing it!

    Cheers!

    Forget the hype on this hat.

    Come back and talk to me when you all get the 2 rarest of all time (ROAT):
    - Iberostar
    - Bovet 1822

    Was Isner GHOATing Carl at Lasagna on 20th Street last week with my girlfriend and when we got home she goes whats that on your hat? I take it off and there's a gigantor thunder turd where the bill meets the GHOATish fibours.

    So I've rinsed it off a million times but there's still wretched obvious stool marking. What the fuch did that damn pigeon eat to stain the GHOAT?

    I'm also worried that the turd was on my head and the whole restaurant saw it since I was Isnering(tm) and had my back to like 200 of the "beautiful people".

    Totally devastated.

    Commiserations. I know how it feels, for having similar experience, only it was in a bus, I was proudly wearing my stunning navy blue hat - and some pretty hot guy kept smiling to me all the time....I was levitating and all... Once at home, hubby landed me with a killer laugh, finger pointing at my hat. I've never forgiven him this:evil:. Life is cruel.

    btw, how come your gf didn't see the disaster earlier??? I mean, she's supposed not to be able to get her eyes off you, no?!:shock:

    :wink:

    Forgive me GHOATherd, I have abused my Workhorse Nano twins with sweat and too infrequent bathing. I decided to give them a break tonight in this almost 100% humidity and give my Sundowner Schnike cap a chance to start for my team. An instant success, ala Jeremy Lin for the Knicks! It is a real sweatsucker and stores the moisture away from my eyes on the melon. Buy one, you'll love it!

    Everybody... I would just like to state that I was recently at nike, and I discovered this beautiful product. Whether or not this could be the new GHOAT is still up in the air, but this hat's sleek and beautiful design is certainly a step in the right direction, and I immediately bought it. check it out friends

    Aesthetically speaking, it's a beautiful hat, but I worry about how breatheable a waterproof hat would be for someone who's playing tennis on a hot, humid day. I own plenty of breatheable/waterproof jackets, and they still get clammy on the inside if I sweat in them.

    I am also still looking to acquire a GHOAT.

    ericjsandman @ gmail . com

    Anyone know what type of hat Berdych was wearing during the FO? It looks like a Feather Light - though it didnt have the black accents on it. Updated Feather Light? New pro-version?

    Very much agree.
    The fact that it's available in yellow makes it a ROAT contender also.

    As I poast, my Workhorse Nano GHOAT twins are drying from their long overdue baths along with their new cousin Schnike Sundowner. A friend asked me what's so special about these caps. I explained how my GHOATs keep on performing while her RF hybrids would have been garbage many months ago if I wore them. My Nanos are now more than 16 months in service and still almost as fresh as Day 1. I stand by my GHOATs!

    I only have the one GHOAT, and I wear it for my evening run every night. Still performs like a champ. I don't wear it for tennis much as the bill isn't really big enough for my liking to keep the sun out of my eyes. I just wish they made the bill a bit wider.

    The stars shall fade away, the sun himself grow dim with age, and nature sink in years, but the Carl GHOAT shalt flourish in immortal youth, unhurt amidst the wars of elements, the wrecks of matter, and the crush of top tier 4.5 GOATs.

    Bring back the GHOAT! Even though I know they never will, it's always nice to dream. Every nike person I've talked to I always bring it up and tell them that they should bring this product back.

    After reading this thread I've been searching all over for these TW Hats. Couldn't find one or get a hold of one so I bought one of the Arrow Up hats in blue. I have the Nike Dri Fit and Adidas but they just make my head feel like a oven. The Arrow Up's are great quality hats that do what they're made to do. I love the fact that I don't have to keep wiping sweat on my shirt. They do a great job of picking up sweat and keeping your head cool. Going to order the white one, hopefully they come out with more colors.

    I gave my Gentleman a workout this weekend in the soaring temperatures (100+ degree heat here in Atlanta) and pulled out a 6-3, 6-1 win in 1.5 hours. I could wring the sweat out of the GHOAT, but it still performed like a champ!

    I know how attached you are to the GHOAT, but the Nike Legacy 91 mesh hat is a pretty good hat, as is the adidas split cap and lacoste super dry. Lots of good options out there, but the feather light is not one of my favorites.

    Had a 4.5 flex league blob match yesterday and dude had on a mint new Gentleman.

    I asked him if he knew what he had on top of his head and he had no idea it was a GHOAT. He said he "got it at the store..."

    Unless it was one of you guys and you didn't wanna reveal the Enigma of the Gentleman and admit that Dali crushed you in 2 quick sets under the sweltering sun.

    You should have taken it off his head after you whipped him and told him he wasn't worthy of wearing it during a match! :)

    Does yours still have the tag on it?

    Oh, the Night Ranger, black with hot lime swoosh. The worst fitting of all the GHOATs, they made them too shallow, compared to the Carl GHOAT.
