Agree, if the one (s) been installed and disclosed to the buyer then no issue.
But from the picture, definitely could not be sold as "NEW" if not diclosed that one or more had been installed and pulled, tested and pulled. For goodness sake, clean out the old epoxy before shipping the shafts.
I would be very careful getting the tapered tips from this vendor, do check the spec to make sure it was what it advertised to be.
I purchased a set of used shafts which is way cleaner than that shown in the picture.
Really sloppy job if from a member , especially from a vendor whom supposed to make sure everything is according to what it was advertised.
