Mezz Cue ZZ-36 - 07-22-2020, 04:12 PM

https://www.billiardwarehouse.com/cues/mezz/ZZ36.html

I am thinking about buying this cue. Is it a good reflection of your typical Mezz cue? People have said Mezz might be one of the top production cues out there nowadays, along with Schon.

Will this cue give me a good idea of how Mezz Cues play? Or should i be looking elsewhere?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. And for those that always do this - go ahead and make your smart-aleck comments.

Playing Cue: Chad Carter Custom - Bloodwood & Holly
Break Cue: Schon butt/Chad Carter shaft
Table: Gold Crown IV
Cloth: Simonis 860 Apple Green

Super cues imo. Best QC of any co. out there. Love mine. They make quite a few different shafts to choose from. This particular cue is a ZZ-series and they are discontinued. They aren't cheap but they are flawlessly made.

A lot of people say that Mezz is the best made production cue.
I have never seen one close up.
But I think they are expensive and their designs are boring.
But to each his own.

Best of the bunch- The Mighty Lucasi Cocobolo
Back up cue - Troy Downey
I woke up.
Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.

I know you like Lucasi's and they are nice but some of their designs are horrid looking imo. Just not real big on Chinese anything right now.

Yeah some of the Lucasi designs are bad but every cue manufacturer(think Viking) has some dogs.
Chinese food is great right?

Wouldn't eat Chinese food if it was free. Used to date a chick that did Health Dept. inspections. A few of her horror stories broke me from eatin' that crap.

Chad Carter in Owensboro is making me a cue similar to what is discussed in the thread that you pasted. Should have it by the end of the year.

But in the meantime, i am thinking i need to try a Mezz to see what all the fuss is about.

I almost bought the cue you are thinking about buying but I ended up buying the; EC7-W6 last month. Absolutely gorgeous cue, imho. The Wenge wood is gorgeous. It hits as good as any cue I've ever hit with. One issue is that the linen wrap is too slick, but it is getting better. I've only played with it three times since I got it though. I was a little shocked though, at the flimsy packaging they sent it in.

I have a serious jones for a EC 9. Either in Rosewood or Blackwood, I can't decide. I like plain. Why would there be smart aleck remarks over a Mezz? Seems like a real good choice right now. I will not spend anymore money on a China product when it can be avoided.

Mezz Cues are made in Japan, not China!
