Berdych seems to be wearing a white with dark blue swoosh at Miami.
Possibly a new color?
Kim, oh Kim what color number are this blue and the red swoosh he was wearing up until now? Anybody check the outlets lately to see if any GHOATs have shown up??
Will I do? Nike made a White/Green Abyss version of the GHOAT. Probably what Berdych is wearing. I turned it on three games into the second set and it looked more black, but I assume it was made darker by sweat. I'm not sure of the color codes off the top of my head, but they have not been
available at any outlets. The green abyss is new production, though, so thats a good sign.
The red swoosh was the GHOAT made for FO 2011.
You did just fine, Brian........I thought about you right after I posted that& I should have said Kim or Brian!! The swoosh on Berdych's GHOAT matched his shirt and wristband at the start of the match.
"Me Gusta" means "I like" just letting you know.
I was out of town and could not check this treads. I knew berdych will wear green abyss swoosh in this year.
Actually I knew it a few months ago but did not know when we will be seen the hat.
The color code was 115.
Nano GHOATness for me yesterday transforms this 3.5 hack to 4.0 GOATness. Nano GHOAT, Fed 2011 Miami outfit, grey CB 3.3s send mutant energy vibes through my body through my arm to Microgel Radical mid + producing laser serves and forehand winners in 7-5, 6-4 win.
Isner: Florian Mayer, really?? Come back to the GHOAT, Johnny!!
any ghoats left on the bay? i never know how they are listed and search for GHOAT..lol.
Nike tennis hat or Nike Trend woven is how they are usually listed
It's named right in the title of the thread.
yeah thats how I did the search before I asked. Anyway, none there.
I check my local Nike outlet for ghoats every now and then..if I find one I'll let you know.
Im actually considering moving some of mine and want to ask a fair price. But I appreciate that!
Ok cool...with the worldwide ghoat shortage right now I'm sure many will be interested..
So it looks like Nike is going to release a new cap this summer called the "Court Tennis Cap" with the Nike Tennis Court logo on the front. The description sounds different ahn the featherlight hat that they have now, so hopefully it will be closer to the Trend Woven hat...
News of this "new production" GHOAT will lead me on a GHOATsafari to my local Schnike outlets. It's been so long since I hunted the near-extinct creature...what is the product code #? Also, is there a product code yet for the Court Tennis Cap that has been brought up in another post?
TWE I believe has the the Court Tennis cap..there is a summer version and a regular version.
^ they do, it looks identical to the normal FL, top vents and all. What a shame. http://www.tenniswarehouse-europe.com/descpage-NMSCTH.html
The Court Tennis Cap is nuthin but a crappy featherlite. Not a GHOAT, not even close.
Why Nike does not make the GHOAT available to the masses I have no idea. It's the marketing blunder of a lifetime.
Well the court Tennis cap I saw in a catalog looked different, but then again until you see it in person you never know. I would like to pick up at least one more GHOAT so I can swap it with my white/obsidian, but I guess I'll have to really look for one as they are harder and harder to find now.
Watching the replay of the Murray/Tipsy match.......Lendl has on one of these Court Tennis caps; it's just a featherlight with the court logo on it instead of the swoosh
If anyone is interested in selling some GHOATS, I'm buying....
I posted in the Wanted board, but it never got put up.
Hmm, the new one on the Tennis warehouse site looks like it might be different. I'll wait to see it in person.
You are correct.
I purchased a blue one about 6 months ago off the Bay, thinking it would somehow be different than the featherbrick but similar to the ghoat..
The material seems like it would be more breatheable than the FL however. (Never wore it- shipped back to the seller).
This has piqued my interest.
Just acquired a black GHOAT. Oh my goodness. This thing is going to be trashed come September if I don't find a couple more to rotate with it.
24 days of above average temps in Central Florida (90 instead of 80) led me to give my Workhorse GHOATs a day off and a warm, sudsy bath. Look as good as Day One. Gawd, I luv my GHOATs!
Okay, may have found a new tennis hat. The adidas split cap is very comfortable. I know that's blasphemy in this thread, but it and the super dry are fantastic.
^^ yeah I commented on the grand slam in the deleted GHOAT thread but the sizing mechanism is one of the worst designs ever created...totally blows. But yes, the materials are strikingly similar but adjusting the sizing of these hats quickly on the court or before is just a ROYAL PITA.
Isner playing Lopez in Houston, sweat pouring off his croc hat, drip drip drip......I swear no matter how hot the conditions, I NEVER saw sweat running off the GHOAT when he wore it.
Anyone getting rid of ghoats new or old email me;
I concur, anyone wants to get rid of a GHOAT I am looking for one any color other than white/obsidian. firstname.lastname@example.org
So I asked on Nike Tennis' facebook page about this hat, and they said that currently this is a player only hat and not available to the public (duh). Nothing said on when or if they would reproduce for the public. Sad...but interesting that I got a response.
I wonder how much interest would have to be there for Nike to re-release it. I know there's heavy interest here and I have seen petitions in the past, but for whatever reason they (Nike) won't sell it. I wish they would because Featherlights are stupid looking with the black trim BS that runs all around the hat. Plus it has a weird cut around wear your ears are when you wear the hat.
I agree with the comments above by aceroberts13. The Featherlights just don't cut it. Can't stand the black trim and strange shape of the hat around the ear. They are functional for court use, but you certainly wouldn't want to wear it elsewhere. I tried a few local Nike factory stores in the Chicago area, and no GHOATs to be found. Hope some surface in the future
I'm not sure how much interest there would need to be, but everyone on here should "like" Nike Tennis on Facebook and harrass them about it..maybe they'll realize what they're missing out on or maybe offer them to us since we're diehard fans? Doubtful, but one can dream.
Hey all, could someone please message me about more GHOATS? I need a few more colours...
With my White, Black and Nano ghoats endangered and Nike insulting us by rebadging a Featherlight as a tennis hat, I got my hands on some of the Adidas white/high energy (orange) Climalite has that Murray has worn throughout 2012.
They look, fit and feel great, very light with solid breathability and wicking. It's 100% nylon so different to other Climalite hats and similar in composition to the Nike PE wristbands and certain high end shirts. It still ranks behind the Ghoat (misses the extra mesh vents and special brim absorber) but I'm pleased Adidas have offered us a credible alternative due to Nike's decision to fob us off with trash bags that either don't breathe or don't fit correctly.
Long time lurker here...
Also looking to acquire/purchase my first GHOAT. Any interest, please email me at:
I would love to have a blue one for my son. It would match his new Vapor 9's.
Good luck with that one!!! The blue is the rarest of GHOATs and like no one has one (except me).
Delpo's coach is sporting the brownish/Grey GHOAT today for his match in Rome...
I think that color was called "smoke", a very rare bird indeed.
Success has gone to his head.^^^^^^^
Battle of the GHOAT heads right now in Rome, Kubot vs Berdych, both sporting a white GHOAT.
Wasn't much of a "battle"..........& Kubot still wearing like a 4 year old shirt, WTH?
Any way, just for grins I chatted with Nike on line and there are no GHOATs anywhere, except in Berdych's locker
I will trade one of my smoke/white Cocker Spaniels for this GHOAT!
BTW GHOATherders...forgive me for my extended absence from this thread...I have been abusing my workhorseGHOATs on a daily basis during my cycling through Orlando's turistas. Last night's GHOAT was ridden hard and put away wet, so I end this message to give him and his twin bro a good GHOATbath. My Nike Sundowner may have to sub in...not a bad fill-in but just not a GHOAT.
I love my white GHOAT!
