Was looking on there website...they took off some of the vintage hats and put some new ones on.....45 bucks are you kiddng me that is insane. Hats cost MAYBE 10 dollers to make and embroder and they are charging 45. i just think that is nuts and such a rip off

I saw that to-$45 is insane but how do you expect them to recoop the cost of having to replace every 08's vdig 7 times over the warranty period.

The problem with the hat is that they are New Era. New Era is the "In thing". The dealer cost of them is not much less than the $45 price tag.

Don't forget that pricing is highly based on volume. Fox will buy more hats from New Era than MasterCraft. This means they (Fox) will get better pricing from the manufacturer (New Era). You will see that the non-New Era hats are much cheaper.

Yea, and think, MC probably only has 2 hats a year made at that price.

It's just best I stay out of the ProShop before I say something ugly!

I agree with you Steve but they're both ugly as hell. looks like gangster gear to me.

How about a nice Michigan hat instead?

Maybe the price of hats is a percentage of what the average boat price is. Seems to me if you can afford boats in the $60,000+ range a $45.00 hat is ok.

They have to pay for the R&D of the CSX somehow.

I've sent several over the years and made many a suggestion in the surveys I've received from the pro shop. I like what I see with the plain logo tshirts they have this year. I bet they'll sell a ton of them.

As for the hats, the plain logo ones would be fine but for the weird seam down the front and the blue inlay on the front of the brim. Looks like the visors are back. Best looking hat of the bunch IMO. Too bad I don't wear visors. My wife still has hers and loves it though. As for the new era stuff, I guess I'm somewhat glad they're so expensive. Maybe I won't see as many of them.

Or maybe the price of the new era hats is to offset the "free bowl of soup" you get if you buy them (it looks good on you though). ;)

Just wait on the hats and come to CSM '08 and trickskier will be letting people have his Florida Gator hat for free!

Just looked at the MC hat. Price is absurd by any standard. As to the looks does "butt ugly" seem to fit?

Come on guys those are New Era 5950's...........your supposed to get them 1 size bigger tuck your ears inside them and wear them tilted or "sidwazes" just a little........:D

On a serious note a New Era all wool 5950 baseball cap is 35 bucks or so and I pay that.:o

Now if they came out with some Mastercraft PJ's with feet in them and a trap door in the rear, that didn't cost the deed to the house, we wouldn't have to consider buying the cheap Florida Gator sleepin' drawers!

I thought it was an option in 89 and you and Mrs.TMC#1 had a matching set.

Doubt there are many kids buying 60 and 70 thousand dollar boats.....MC needs a marketing department that understands who their customers are...

Amen to that. Maybe their kids are using the boats but they aren't buying the products.

I did see some good stuff there and will probably get some things. I have had one bad experience with the proshop so hesitant to have another one. My experience found here. It finally was resolved recently.

Its not that they also took away some of the cool old school font hats. And they only have some T shirts that JUST say mastercraft on them.......i dont care for all the script i want just plain mastercraft shirts and not wife beaters....not all girls can wear those or want to.

Other than the New Era hats, this is the best selection in years.

Simple stuff that is not outrageous in price.

Long Sleeve T-shirts, Sweatshirts, basic t-shirts with the MasterCraft logo. This is the stuff we have been asking for, quit *****in about the one thing that is over the top. I mean those wakeboard types gotta wear something.
