Did you buy your cue used or through a dealer?
I have seen warped Mezz shafts, although they are rare.
Warped butts is not very common. How do you store your cue?

I bought it new and through a store/reseller. The butt are fine, the shaft in other hand are slightly wobble when I make the purchase, but the bent are just very slightly. I stored it on my work room with my other cue which are in the room for 5 years since I moved here. I think the way I store my cue are not the problem because I always wipe the cues, cases, and accessories for 2-3 times a month. For the last 4 years, I can only play maybe once every 3 months for 3 hours each.


Playing Cue: H-Nung D'Cue, Maycarella, Mezz+WX700, Fury+314-2, No Brand Cue.
Break Cue: H-Nung D'Cue, Players, Gino Ferrari (Always in my locker).
Jump Cue: Predator, H-Nung D'Cue.
Case: 3x5 Mezz JPC Hardcase, 4x8 Maycarella Softcase, 2x4 Elite Hardcase.

What's the humidity where you store your stuff? The humidity where you live is usually very high. Unless you're using a high-quality de-humidifier your climate may be working against you.

Love the ExPro! - 08-07-2017, 08:54 PM

I had a Hybrid Pro II Shaft and wasn't all that impressed, I liked my Tiger Pro-X Shaft better, but this new ExPro shaft is awesome! Stiff hit like I was playing with an R series Schon, you get that same ping sometimes. I donot like the Zan tips and don't see what the fuss is about. I play with a Medium Dennis Searing Precision Tip and it plays awesome! Awesome spline action!
only $10 for these tips and they hit better then Zan or G2's etc.


All is Grace,
"Malibu" Mike Murphy



Shooter: Schon R-14 light Blue w/Schon Stitched 30" Mezz EXPROShaft with PreciSion Tips from Dennis Searing (Medium)
Spare Cue: Schon LTD 8?? one of one, Bocote forearm, Tulip wood in points/Jacoby Hybrid Shaft 31" with PreciSion (Med.) Tip
: 80's Red R14 New Stacked Leather Wrap with early 80's rare Runde 30" Shaft Micarta Ferrule 13mm (on Top)

WTH is "spline action"? Been buying cues/shafts for 35yrs and have never heard that. What shaft quality/feature are you referring to?

it's so crazy how everyone has a different opinion on the same products.

i'm on the complete opposite side of the fence. I love the Hybrid Pro II shaft and won't play with any other ld shaft. The carbon composite spine is amazing and allows for retaper of the shaft without making the shaft less whippy. Mezz quality is superior to most other brands.

I bought several searing precision tips and had them installed on several of my friends cues. They all came back and told me they hated them. One guy had over 10 shafts installed with them and within a couple weeks had to take them all off.

My favorite tip is Zan or G2..as they have been the most consistent and most reliable in terms of quality and performance.

Goes to show there are no real absolutes in terms of equipment. Each person has their own playing style and preferences.

Yes people seem to judge stiffness, balance etc quite different.
I`ve had a Medium Precision tip on my shaft for about six months now, and I think they play fine for the price, they do mushroom quite a bit after installation, so a re trim is neccessary after the first five hours of play or so.
