I'm *still* waiting to recieve my new Mezz with a Predator 314 shaft. I read quite a few threads that you cannot jump with he predator shaft as it will *eat* the impact.

On that note: How many of you have try soft & hard masse using the 314 ? Success?

I mentioned that out loud to Scott Lee, who said something along the lines of "Oh, Horsepucky!" - took my Predator and made a perfect massť.

Now that he's shown me how, I soft massť with my Predator all the time. Works fine.

You heard right - a Predator 314 will barely jump at all. I'm 100% sure of that, based on experience. I also think it is harder to masse with - but that may just be my imagination. If I'm doing a soft masse shot I switch from my Predator to my break cue or even a house cue.

Spetty, you posted your reply while I was writing mine. Maybe I need to get Scott up here for a masse lesson!

Ross...Ooops ...golly gee...and I drove right through Durham, and spent the night at Candyman's house in Elon just last week! We had some fun shooting at his new local poolroom, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting his lovely wife! Definitely will get ahold of you next time I'm in NC. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Scott, you are in deep doo-doo buddy! If I EVER hear of you passing within 50 miles of Durham again and not stopping by to give a lesson and to shoot some, well, well, uhh..., I'll send Wally to "whup up" on you!
