This is it!
I know from personal experiences the heartache of letting go of a shaft that was supreme to all others. One cannot but recall, with great pleasure and, often, tears, all of the fantastic hits from the tee that flew squarely where aimed. Alas, there have been a great many of those shafts, each of which, in their own right, was supreme. I have some now, making more of those lasting memories.
Perhaps this potential buyer is just wanting to hear a feel good story related, with hopes of experiencing the same. Must be having poor luck with his shafts; I feel for him.
