Are you contacting the flat side or the bevel side on the ferrule face? A common misinterpretation of Japanese single-bevel knives for cutting leather is to match the flat face to the flat side for a...

Predator Revo to be offered in custom configurations

The intro commercial shows an unusually in-depth look into the Revo factory, and more excitingly, a new offering that appears to have gone under the...

I work with leather often, and I would say just to leave it alone.

It would all start with what kind of leather the wrap is - that determines what sort of product you should be using. Car...

This is a good point. There's no magical secret sauce within the burnishing fluids. Gum trag itself isn't particularly magical either in terms of the seal results over water, and comes out a fair way...

From a materials standpoint, these two are not advisable. The objective of burnishing the sides is to flatten the grain by forming a barrier through the combination of moisture and friction. You can...

This one looks more like the Air Drive shaft, the Airshooter has a brass ferrule and wood joint. The Air Drive shaft wasn't piloted though.

I don't have anything negative to mention about it once the wallet stops bleeding. I think aside from the cost difference, it will come down to how much deflection you want - If you want the least...

I prefer the ~12.5mm, pro taper style shaft, and went through the Mezz catalog. I've used the WD700 for the past few years with a HP2 in the mix several times. I didn't enjoy the HP2 so much because...

I've been observing the event through live streams of Naoyuki Oi's buddies.

One comedic point that was made was that while he was practicing and feeling quite confident with the break format,...

I've never seen a Jacoby butt, but if there's space for piloting, it most likely will. I haven't come across a 5/16x14 butt that doesn't take United yet.

I ended up having Newsheriffintwn make me a 5/16x14 - radial 2" midpiece extension adapter so I could continue using my Mezz butts on the Revo. I do like the resulting overall length. Took roughly...

Mezz Kai Break Cue

Used for about half a year, I just can't shake off how comfortable I am with the shorter Power Break II. Taom tip installed on the Deep Impact II. There's a slight ding in the...

I don't think the technology can make up for as much as the original construction design itself. Maybe the highest deflection of the 11.75-12mm, european/conical taper shafts might be in the...

Agreed, this has helped me a fair bit in Mezz thinking. One of the upsides of having production consistency products that is well-received enough to have a wealth of opinions.

I certainly don't doubt the importance of familiarity, but there's definitely limits where matching doesn't make as much sense for some. Players using 11.75mm tips probably aren't going to enjoy...

For better or worse, Mezz really does have an overwhelming amount of options. Try pinpointing which shaft you want between WD700/HP2/ExPro, and then deciding on a break shaft.

The feedback is what I like on it for a non-leather tip. The Taom has a similar feel to me, but that gradual coning, especially with 9-ball breaks involving a trailing follow-through, was what really...
