Great review, very straight forward. Thank youI just purchase a wrapless orange/red version from Mezz USA butt only. I’m currently playing with an Ignite shaft. Couple of concerns I had before buying.
1) Will the shaft line up with my shaft
2) Will the middle forearm joint come loose
3) Is the color accents too much
4) How adjustable is the cue
5) Is it a solid feeling cue
The shaft lines up perfectly at near exact diameter.
The joint for weight bolt insertions are perfectly machine as well. However, if you place your hand on the forearm joint you will feel it. Ive gotten use to it now, and I hold the cue towards the rear so it seldom comes into play. The joint is threaded and very solid. It would be very rare where you would need to retighten the forearm to the butt.
The cue is almost 95% black and I rarely notice the color accents. Most people comment and ask if I’m playing with a jump break cue.
You definitely want to include the weight bolt kit. It’s very well made and you have so many options with adjustment. I wanted a more forward balance cue, and was able to achieve that. I will say, it took me a lot of time to adjust to this set up from a weight perspective. But I like my setup now, more than what I had before. So it’s a good purchase for me.
The cue doesn’t feel as solid as my Mezz sneaky pete. But it hits good for me. Being that it is hollow in the forearm, there’s just no way it’s as solid feeling as a solid jointed cue.
Its probably a placebo effect, but I feel that I have more control of the cueball. My cue now weighs 18.75 oz, in the past I was at 19.5 oz.
Sorry, i believe the Mezz website gives specs of the cue shipped. I believe Wolven is right. It came with weight bolts installed and when removed, somewhere between 15 - 17 oz. The cue does not sound hollow. That being said, I believe feel and sound is subjective.
Between 15 and 17 is not very helpful . Maybe you can check when you get a chance.Sorry, i believe the Mezz website gives specs of the cue shipped. I believe Wolven is right.

I haven’t played one but I’ve been playing with Mezz and Exceed cues for nearly 10 years, with most of the various Mezz shafts.I would like to revisit this thread. My understanding is that it comes as 15oz standard, with one 1oz and one 0.5oz weight bolts installed, so 13.5oz with weight bolts removed. Can you confirm?
The wawy model is out in the meantime, had anyone been able to try it?
