Mezz Ignite

The 12.2mm Miki (Mezz) Ignite shaft features the finest Japanese aerospace grade carbon fiber material engineered and built with Miki’s renowned precision and technical excellence. The Ignite Composite Laminate Technology (ICLT) consists of silencer foam, IG Plate Ferrule and IG Tip Plate for reduced cue ball deflection and increase stability, feel, power and control. The vibration dampening core gives the shaft flexibility where it’s needed and cuts out unwanted feedback while providing optimum flex with less tip end mass reducing deflection down to be almost none existent. You can’t find a better pool cue shaft!

The Miki Ignite shaft is available in two joint options: Mezz Wavy joint and the Mezz United joint. The United joint happens to be a modified 5/16×14 and we can confirm that the United joint will fit on Joss and Schon cues! Specifications

Prior to this week I had not written a review on the Mezz Ignite shaft as it truly has stood on its own over the past years as being the preeminent leader in the carbon fiber shaft category as people are paying above retail price and availability continue to be sparse when trying to purchase one. 

I am all for equal billing and level playing field when it comes to reviews and evaluating shafts and products yet I felt there really was no urgency in providing our review for the Mezz Miki as it seems as though everyone loves this shaft and there are no bad qualities only that it has a feel of its own and as all carbon fiber shafts, has characteristics that make feel precise and efficient when compared to other shafts.

I have to be honest that I feel a bit reluctant to comment more on this product as I feel that it is a shame that price gouging has occurred with the Miki shaft since its release and I feel that it should be frowned upon or thwarted by Mezz yet they seem to allow it to be that way and not be able to keep up with demand. I will simply leave it at that.  

In the future I may break down and write a thorough review, yet for now I think Mezz is doing just fine regardless of reviews on this product.
