    Workhorse GHOAT: my MVP!

    Had to GHOATbathe my two Workhorses yesterday. Neither was totally fond of prematurely ending their sunbathing session afterwards, so I subbed in my Night Ranger and hummed a little "Sister Christian" while cruising on the rickshaw. Big mistake! Even at night the black lid gets a bit too schwetty for me. I was doing my Roddick imitation with Niagara Falls cascading off the bill. Had to come home and spank those two naughty NanoGHOATs for frolicking in the yard while I was working the night away. One of them will be on domecover duty every night from now on.

    I too washed my nano workhorse, and to my great pleasure, it came out even softer and more comfy than before. I GHOATed it with my grey 3.3s Tuesday night in 99 degree GA heat to a come from behind victory.......now nano needs another bath

    My buddy who I had always owned had DeGoatified me the past 4 times we played. Played him tonight and changed it up. Broke out an 88 out of the closet strung up with 6 month old TB 17.

    Whipped out the original Night Ranger GHOAT from USO10, sported the USO09 black Rafa nite shorts and red V8.

    He was GOATing the first few games but I held to take it to a tie break.

    Won the tb and felt like such a tool for being in box beam purgatory. I felt much better on the baseline with the 88 after using the 85 the past few weeks, the K90 and PT90 for the Summer. God I hate u Wilson.

    I shamed the GHOAT tonight. Just played awful,lethargic tennis.

    I actually just took the GHOAT off a certain point and turned the bill away from the court so it didn't have to face my awful service game.

    Since TW hats are no longer available, I am wondering people are willing to buy similar hat from other companies...
    I have not seen any hat which is closed to TW hats Yet but If There is very similar to TW hat, whether people will buy the hat or not.
    Do you buy TW hat because of swoosh logo?

    I'm not a Swoosh Slave!

    I'm hooked on the GHOAT for its functionality...so comfortable and form-fitting to my melonhead. Give it a little TLC and it's like the first day I got it. There is nothing like a GHOAT!

    GHOAT update:
    Saw two kids at 14s zonal wearing white TW hats. One was on my team.
    Isner was wearing a white GHOAT with a grey underbill against Troikster.

    Not showing off or anything, but these are my new Trend Woven Caps waiting in the wings to be worn! Besides the more popular white/dark obsidian and nano gray/white are the black/white, white/black, and charcoal/white. Nice hats!

    My current, in use rotation is:

    Nano Gray/White
    White/Black
    White/Dark Obsidian
    Black/Hot Lime
    Photo Blue/White

    My white hats are taking a beating this summer. Some of the dark spots, dirt and sweat, do not come off in a bath anymore.... :)

    No, there are no similarities to that hat and a GHOAT, other than they are both hats.

    The hat you are talking about is a featherlight with a tennis court Nike logo instead of a swoosh.

    Seen a Coach at Rogers Cup in Toronto wearing a GHOAT. White with a light grey swoosh. To me doesnt look as good as the obsidian one.

    the sweatband is Sphere Dry..everything else is poly per the product description

    I love my GHOAT..but wish it did a touch better job of keeping the sweat from dripping down...

    pretty amazed at how easy to care for they are...even my special edition white/gold (from the bleach session) is in great shape..

    I'd say that the sweatband needs to do a better job of pulling moisture out to the hat quicker.

    I'm probably on the higher end of the sweat scale in all of this. I loved the sphere stuff from 07 or so that was quite textured when I lived in TX as it did just that.

    Understand that the headband per se cannot be very textured or it could be uncomfortable, yet it needs to pull it quicker to the outside part of the hat where it can evaporate

    Sweat rains off my ghoats in double drops from the ends of the bill.

    It is like a summer shower that relaxes and focuses me.

    I have a sphere hat (navy w/ two white stripes on each side) that I love. Trend Woven is in the mail. I'm interested to see if it lives up to the hype.

    Hopefully it's not an imposter!!!

    just chatted with nike and they said there are no more GHOATS! This makes me very sad as I just got my first GHOAT from kimguroo off the bay. Anyone know of where I can get some other colors?

    The best thing to do is start liquidating your assets. Stock up on ammunition and potable water and get to new york any way you can.

    I made a personal call to 3 men "in the know" at the USOpen.

    2 have disappeared completely and all record of their existence has been eradicated.

    The remaining man is in seclusion near Little Rock Arkansas.

    When I reached him by using morse code over a private line, he implored me to never poast about the GHOAT again without reading the thread in it's entirety.

    I will let those who wore it hopefully chime in.

    We have had epic GHOAT threads deleted before so the details were in there.

    It was a dark day for everyone.

    We are continuously searching for the next Great One. The second coming, if you will. Sadly, it reminds me of being in the music business and being asked to find "the next Nirvana".

    Is there any way someone can let me know to get a PB GHOAT? I'd swap my girlfriend, sell my car and throw in my racquets almost at this point. I'm a desperate man, I must have the Mystical Blue GHOAT of Match-Winning!

    If had access to more I would get one for you! Sorry JPT! I do have hope that these colorful GHOATs will one day be found. And we will all be very happy people.

    Fk me. It's getting rrreal in the whole foods parking lot.
    This is like seeing F. Scott Fitzgerald goating an O'douls. Sign of the times boys, dows dropping, ghoats are scarce. Batten down the hatches and hoard 88s.

    GHOAT Augmentation 101

    Trust me, no GHOATbro sweats more than me 5-6 nights a week hauling fat turistas around Orlando's I-Drive in my rickshaw. I wear a Halo headband under the hat and have zero issues with salt-strain in my eyes. They are thin enough to not even require any adjustment to the GHOATband. After sundown, I take it off, stow it on my handlebars and then hang dry it on my rearview mirror in the car as I drive home. Good to go all over again tomorrow!

    does everyone like the size of TW hat?
    some people wish that TW hat should be slightly bigger.

    earlier hats look like 56cm size and Photo blue is about 58cm size or even slightly bigger than 58cm.

    I agree, the TW hat fits my head perfectly as well. Here I am GHOATing at the PGA Championship practice round today in front of the clubhouse.
