I'll be back over there on Sunday for my DD's next practice, so I'll see what kind of deal I can swing. Fingers crossed it's still there...

. But I gotta tell you, getting a good price from him just by texting him isn’t as satisfying as putting on an sporting goods salesman with a Sundance Film Festival quality act.
Next time, I will be more difficult and will let you go thru your routine first so you can feel happy :)

I'll have to work on my worried voice a little. Definitely harder on the phone.

When I was a kid, an old farmer told me when you are negotiating a deal, "you got to find things to worry about". It was almost a joke to him, he would worry, fret, codgitate and generally slow roll everything. It was truly entertaining to watch. Salesmen didn't mind it because they knew he wasn't a tire kicker he just had to feel like he was getting a good deal. I bet he had a silo full of cash, probably augered out $20 bills whenever he needed money.

My CF8 addict finally had to settle for a CF Zen this year. I was seeing used CF8s for $400 on Ebay. I just can't do that. Turns on the she loves the Zen. Maybe more than the CF8. Find a dealer (that sounds bad). We did not pay retail, though I don't think Core sells these. We found someone local.

My DD likes her CFX, but she feels that she hit the ball better with her CF8. It's all in her head because she kills the ball no matter what she swings. I have contacts with quite a few dealers, but I just want to see what kind of deal I can get on that CF8.

Funny, mine hated the CFX. We ended up selling it and getting her another CF8 used on Ebay. But that was last fall (2017). She felt like the CFX had no pop. And I will admit, it seemed true. It just came off the bat differently from the CF8. So I'm really not sure it was in her head this time.

My girls don't hate the CFX but they definitely liked the CF8 better. The CF8 we had was the red, white & blue (forget what they called it? Warrior edition or something?) but it broke at the handle fairly early. We were getting pressured by the coaches to move up to a 34/24 from the 33/23 at the time so that's what we did for the warranty replacement. They've had some success with the the CFX (still swinging it some) in fact had quite a few HR's with it last year but my guess is those plus a few more hard hits would have happened with the 33".
