Mezz pool cues are an import from Japan, a country where clean, elegant aesthetics are held in the highest regard. This is clearly reflected in the design of their pool cues which feature a great combination of light and dark colors.
The Mezz line of cues are renowned for having a firm hit while still retaining their reputation for low deflection. The WD700 shaft is largely the reason for their continued reputation of excellence.
If you’ve never had the chance to actually try a Mezz cue, we’ve got you covered with the Select Billiards Hands-On Video Review and exclusive Select Billiards Photos of the EC7-C from every angle. It’s the next best thing to trying it out for yourself!
Select Billiards’ Video Review:
This cue features a Cocobolo butt sleeve, a black Irish-linen wrap with stitch rings above and below the wrap. More Cocobolo is used in the forearm, leading up to two silver rings at the joint collar.
The joint is a 5/16-14″ United joint and the installed tip is a Kamui tan.
How It Actually Plays:
- WD700 Shaft (12.50mm)
- Hitting the ball with a soft hit, the ball hit the far rail at about 1″.
- Hitting the ball with a medium hit, the ball hit the far rail at about the 2″ mark.
- Hitting the ball with a firm hit, the ball hit the far rail at a little over the 2″ mark.
This cue is beautiful, it plays very well, and has a stiff hit. If you like stiff-hitting cues, this is a great pick.
