Question: On the Mezz WX700 shaft page (here) on mezzcues.us, you can choose between the 5/16x14 standard joint and the United joint. I have always thought that the United joint is the standard 5/16x14 joint (for instance, a United joint shaft would fit a Schon). No?

Question: The Zan Tip page http://zan-tip.com/eng/technology.html seems to suggest that you can get more grip / spin with a harder tip. That doesn't seem to make sense. How is that possible?

The United Joint is a bit tighter than a regular 51614, some shafts like Schon works with Mezz, some don't...
The Zan Grip Hard tip plays like a good quality hard tip, but holds chalk better than a Moori or Kamui hard tip.

I installed a Zan GRIP hard on my Kai Breaker and it works perfectly
More grip and control as with TAOM which is on my second Shaft

Has anyone had a chance to own/play extensively with the new EX pro shaft? It looks rather nice, but is too costly to buy without some actual reviews on them How does it feel compared to wx700? Softer, harder, stiffer? How does the new taper differ from that of wd/wx700 shafts?
Any input would be appreciated

reviews from a german forum:

more lively than a HP II (Feedbackwise)
still VERY stiff
LD +- like a HP II

Overall a very good LD shaft for those who prefer a tipdiameter over 12mm. Biggest difference between the ex pro and the HP II seems to be the sound when you strike the CB and that it gives a slightly better feedback.

Havent played one on my own (prefer 12mm) but the reviews from the german forum are quite good.

What is the difference between the Mezz MSP-MT and the ZZSP?

Also, how do those two SPs differ from the EC7-P, K, WMB, and WKK? Is it all cosmetic?

Thank you.

Thank you.
The MSP and ZZSP are the new and old "sneaky pete" series from Mezz. The old ones had a steel joint, while the new ones have a phenolic joint ring.
Both uses the United Joint. The new MSP series gives you more choices and the woods used look really good.
MSP cues are spliced, but the other Mezz cues are fully cored if I`m not mistaken.
They do feel very much the same, as do the Exceed cues, so it`s mostly cosmetical.

Anyone have joint diameters, weight, and balance points of the 3/8 - 10 style 700 and 900 series shafts? I saw on another thread that the United styles were about 3.8 to 3.9 ounces.

I wanted to see how the shafts would effect the overall balance point and weight of my cue...

Thanks to all for the many great posts in this thread.

If you could also provide the balance point distance from the joint, that would be great too...many thanks.
