    So, right now, I have 5 Refined Metals, and I really want to move into the hats part of TF2, but I don't really know how. Any advice? Or good deals? Please be truthful, I don't want to lose all my ref on 2 hats or something. I just want to start moving up from refs. Thanks a lot.

    If you don't care what hats you get, say you're buying craft hats at 1.22ref or something. You could also try tf2 warehouse to get less hats, but more of what you want. Hats almost never cost more tha 2 ref oncethey've settled in the market, so you should be able to get a few.

    I'd get keys, they hold value, refined loses it

    So, buy keys? And keep them? Or use them on crates? Or hats?

    Buy keys then whatever you want, I'd probably hold onto them and trade up to Bill's and buds. Or just use them to buy stuff you want

    They both lose value lol.

    If you want hats go buy some hats... can get random craft hats for 1-1.33 refined. Or as another poster said up to a max of around 2.

    If you want to hold your value... trade up to promo items like bills/buds/max.

    I agree with Lucky, if your looking for something more in your price range start buying vintage hats, 5 ref could get you 2 crappy vintages or 1 pretty decent one

    Crafting hats is fun but not profitable. If you're looking to get into the trading scene as well, I'd probably just start saving more and buying hats you like at around spreadsheet price.

    You could take 3 refined and build your own hat. That's a different form of gambling and you might end up winning by crafting something good like an All-Father or Team Captain (worth more than 3 refined) OR you might crap out a Batter's Helmet. WARNING: crafting hats can be addictive, just like masturbation and scratch and sniffle lottery tickets. :)
    I recently crafted a Soldier's Stogie and Dress Uniform, and just never you mind the heaping mountain of garbage hats I've wasted good metal on...
    I write too much.. ! Just have fun fer chrissakes!
