I am beginning to think that what makes a "master skin" a "master skin" is only the price tag
What makes a master skin a master skin is that the person making the skin has attained the rank of master on this site.
In order to attain the rank, one must be several things, only one of which is a great skinner.
Also required is a strong support of WinCustomize and it's members. There is a list of requirements to be met to attain the title master. Tom has met these, and has gone way past these, as a long standing member of this skinning community and has earned the title by filling the requirements and by giving away the bigger portion of his work for years.
In addition, a master should be able to sell what he/she is happy with. To submit what they feel is master quality. And there are requirements to be met for a master skin.
Tom has, over and over, met these skinning requirements to be trusted to sell his skins here.
Everyone has a style. Not everyone likes everyone else's style. If you don't like it, don't buy it, but don't fault the seller if his likes are different from yours.
Should we all decide to put Ford out of business because we prefer Chevys?
