Mezz pool cues are an import from Japan, a country where clean, elegant aesthetics are held in the highest regard. This is reflected in the design of their pool cues which feature beautiful combinations of light and dark woods.
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-CMN from every angle. It’s the next best thing to trying it out for yourself!
Select Billiards’ Video Review:
This cue features a Maple butt plate, with a black, Irish-linen wrap, and stitched rings on either side of the wrap. The forearm shows more Maple leading up to the black joint collar and its two silver rings.
The joint is a 5/16-14″ pin, with a United joint, and a Kamui tan tip.
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.
Mezz cues are beautiful and often understated. If you like stiff-hitting cues made from high-quality materials, this is a great choice.
