    SOS visors 2016
    THE KM admin cap is one I bought two years ago and returned, consensus being that it's a fake.

    I will say this--there had to be between 50-75 SS visor caps being sold as real (and plenty of color-piped ones as well).
    I looked at maybe 4 or 5 of them, and recognized them as high-end fakes.
    After that, I didn't bother to look at a single SS visor for the rest of the show--just a waste of time.

    95% of the visors at the show were (and are) currently on dealer sites.

    I did not attend the SOS this year, and I have to say that, as least as far as the "name" dealers, it looks the the same old, same old. I swear I have seen some of those caps for years, still with their price tags as inflated as the Hindenburg.
    I can't say that it encourages me to take the 6 hour drive again next year, at least the MAX is only a half hour away!

    Bob--
    It is a fun time from the perspective of seeing people I had not seen in a while, and also hanging with my "crew", but if you are going there to buy a visor hat, there really was nothing there that one could not get w/ the click of a mouse.

    You are right about the prices--it was as if the Great Recession never happened....

    It's certainly true when said that there are few high end pieces to be had at the SOS for anything resembling a good price or a bargain. But then again, there never has been. Still, I find the photos interesting to see and can only lament that of all the tables shown, perhaps only 1 or 2 were identified. Do the dealers object to having their names posted by the shots of their tables?

    Default That is probably my fault

    Wagriff— I try to take as many pics of visors as I can-Good and bad and sometimes very bad- But I have a hard time distinguishing the dealers with the pics-With385 pics I can't realistically put the dealer with the
    correct visors-But— Next year I will attempt to identify the dealer prior to the pics of the visors so I can get closer to giving you guys a better focus— Problem is many times there is no real identification on the tables as to who the dealer is-so you just have to go with it—My purpose is to share with the people that can't attend a sample of what is shown—I walked around the show with "Stonemint" and had an incredible experience-Learned A lot!—Saw some amazing visors !

    True that, and as said,we do appreciate the photos...but,as far as identification, perhaps a small pocket notebook could fix the problem...

    Wagriff--the bulk of wiki's photos are of The Ruptured Duck; Ron Wolin; Paul Sack; and Mike Halverson of The Marshal's Baton.
