If you are thinking production. Save yourself the agony, and go with Mezz.

And preferably with the United joint if you want to be able to use other manufacturers shafts on your cue. 5/16x14 shafts fit on the United joint butts and the joint diameter matches well with Predator shafts for example. The wavy joint Mezz cues are harder to use other than Mezz shafts on as the joint pin is proprietary to Mezz.
Sneaky petes (MSP serie), ZZ, MI and EC7 series all use the united joint if that helps with your search.
That said you may not even want to try another makers shaft after playing with the Mezz as their own shafts do play rather well

I've owned two Pechauer cues over the years, one with a phenolic joint & one with an ivory joint, both played very well. I also ordered a second shaft for the one, and the shaft was very well made. Pechauer's are nice cues pick the look you like, and can afford, and enjoy.

It is not the Cue that makes the player or person sink balls, get position, runs racks. It is skill, and knowledge. How is your skill & knowledge?

JMHO

BTW a McDermott will work if you want a good quality stick, need nothing more.

I'm not sure what exactly I am thinking just yet but mezz is definitely still in the running.

I'm assuming that you have had/currently have other cues that you play with how does your Pechauer stack up to those cues you still have that are in the same price range. Did you feel limited in or not happy in the end with Pechauer? Why did you end up getting rid of them?

You're 100000% correct about that. I have no grand expectations that buying an expensive still will do anything for my game except potentially make it worse if i don't choose the correct setup. That said i have been playing for around 15 years and shoot pretty decent. Used to play a lot more when i was in leagues but real life happens so no i play in mostly bars and house tables. My knowledge is decent but i have been working a lot of learning the diamond systems to improve my multi rail kicks as thats an area of the game i need to improve on.

I got the chance to hit a few (un chalked) McDermott cues at the shop but since they don't let you chalk them up its just kinda more if you like the feel and look of the cue.

You will not be disappointed with a Pechauer cue. If you are ordering from them directly, see if you can get a different joint pin than their speed joint. It will just open up options for you. I did see a nice Pechauer sneaky on FB somewhere with a Revo. It looked like brand new and was about $800. That being said, you are well within the range of some nice customs. I would look hard at a Diveney, if you can find one...But, you won't be disappointed with a Pechauer... Good luck!

Keep us posted on how you like it. I have not tried their cues. But I have tried some others, OB, Predator.., But I love my Mezz. If you get a chance to try one. Take it.


Hope.., is not a Tactic.

Now that is one pretty cue you got in the end

Please do let us know how it plays. The look department is definitely taken care of with that model and if it plays half as good as it looks then I think you chose well

Do you feel compelled to spend $700? Why? All the brands you mention start well below that, and their low-end cues play exactly like their $1000 cues, the only difference being the number in inlays and how exotic the woods used. Do you want to buy a cue made in the U.S? I love my Pechauer. If you look at their website it talks about how every component they use is made in-house. They even bought their own timberland so they could farm their own trees. Who else does that? QC is extremely high and you can choose their JP or Pro series, which are made in the same way but with different joints so JP is a little softer, Pro a little firmer hit and more expensive only due to the style of inlays and the exotic nature of the woods used. They do use their own joint though, so after-market options may be limited, however they do offer both standard solid maple and a low deflection laminated shaft. I've called them and they're also excellent people to work with. Stay away from Meucci as you will see a number of very negative comments about them on this site, with warpage, defects and poor customer service seemingly issues over recent years.


Playing cues: Pechauer JP-09N and OB-130 (custom made with an ebony stained handle instead of the linen wrap.) I like no-wrap cues
Retired: McDermott custom stained G230, Schmelke R065 sneaky Pete. All are better than I am but I fight the urge to buy more.

Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?
