    We saw a prototype for this in the past. The bull design that appears on Nadal's pink Ballistic at Roland Garros was also to be put on a hat like the RF for Federer. Anyone seen any further evidence that Nike is going to be releasing this product?

    He means he hopes it's not a fitted cap.

    I hope it's full polyester and not a hybrid cap.

    Hey guys, just saw Rafa again yesterday and he had his bull hat. I asked a Nike rep there about the Nadal Bull Hat, and he said if Rafa wins the USO, they will release the line..

    You'd think Nike would have released it at the USO.

    I've been in Shanghai and they've never had a booth.

    I'm surprised Rafa didn't ask to have a limited edition, special one - e.g. Fed's Red hat - to sell from his website for his foundation. I'd buy one.

    I want a bandana with the Bull log - that would be very cool.

    Rafa bull hat on ****.

    I offered on the Rafa Bull hat but was declined. He said he has sold four of them for a $150 on average. I just can't pay $150 for a hat!!! Wish Nike would just release this.

    make your own! there is another thread on TW that has a very good resolution pic of the bull (it also has a RF logo). Go to cafepress or zazzle or some other site and see if you can get it embroidered. It won't have a Nike logo and you may have to center the bull in the middle of the front

    cons: It won't be dri-fit. It will be expensive (prob $60)

    pros: better color selection

    it might work

    too much time and effort. id rather wait to see if they release it at some point. I think nike doesn't want to release too much Nadal logo stuff because they don't want to take away the market of RF logo stuff. the market for tennis merchandise is limited as it is.
