I have a feeling that guys saying that there "united joint" shafts fit a regular 5/16-14 butt pin actually have 5/16 -14 shaft inserts and not the united They look the same. But are not.



Now a 5/16-14 shaft fits the United but .(it doesn't screwe on tight like a united shaft insert) A united joint shaft is for a united joint but only. Unless u modify the threads on the insert



I'm posting this because I don't want guys to buy a united joint shaft from Mezz and think it's interchangeable with other makers butts as is...like I was led to believe by posters on this forum.
My mileage differs. My ex pro shaft does feel snugger towards the end but it was more secure feeling than anything else. It was more like the pin was doing the joining whereas the pilot does that job on a lot of 5/16-14 cues.

If I had a choice to buy a shaft, in either joint, with minimal price difference, I would buy the united. There may be a difference between a true mezz joint on a mezz shaft and a united joint on a 3rd party shaft, like a predator.
