I didn't say the joint wasn't engineered enough. I believe it is over engineered--in a very incompetent way.
If you read, I've always said that a screw is a poor locator. The pins that claim to be both a screw and a locating device are mostly the result of people trying something while knowing little to nothing about the engineering concepts they are proclaiming to use.
As far as tools being tools, sure, great. What if you had to go buy a few hundred dollar tool to change your flat tire? I'm sure you'd not mind if that happened to you in the middle of the winter miles away from anywhere at midnight on a sunday. Right?
As far as pissing, it is only you who is. KJ and I have attempted to EDUCATE ignorant people. Before anyone gets angry at me calling them ignorant, let me state that ignorance, in itself, is nothing to be ashamed of--we are all ignorant about certain things (I certainly don't know anything about medieval chivalry--Jaden proved that recently. Oh, oops, I do know something about chivalry because I read his article and accepted he knew more about it than I). Ignorance by choice (i.e. when you are given information and still refuse to learn) should not be tolerated.
I'll state it again: I can't abide by manufacturers making claims that are either false or not supported.
As for the marketing over here, maybe in Norway every statement is legitimate. Maybe every consumer refuses to be taken in by claims. I somehow doubt it.
you're making a big deal about nothing. it's a pin in a cue and most people that buy them like the shafts that get offered with the cue.
you don't want to use a mezz shaft don't buy mezz cue. the snug fit and tight tolerances just seem to equal quality.
i've liked every mezz cue i've owned and like that the cue screws together tight.
