Had a similar issue with a Wildflower Mead. I used Super-Kleer. The mead was "super clear" in 3 days. The only problem with Super-Kleer is the packs are made for 5 gallon batches.

This link has a good description of the various fining agents, and when to use them. Not all finings are the same, and are more effective in certain situations than others.

SuperKleer KC will clear it in 48 hours. I use it on all my melomels and they drop brilliant clear (noted by judjes for clarity). About $3 worth per 5 gal batch
