Z² SHAFT FACTS AND FEATURESThe new Predator Z² shaft is 11.75mm at the tip with a stronger Pro shaft taper. The new design is re-engineered to increasingly reduce cue ball deflection. It's even easier to pocket balls using English. The all new Tiger® Everest tip is now multi-layered, enhancing the feel, reducing mushrooming and increasing the life of the tip. New Titan® Ferrule is 4/10 of an inch. New ferrule is stronger and more resistant to scratching, chalk stains and damage. A shorter ferrule improves your cue's performance. Joint insert is mounted in a solid core of phenolic for better surface contact and insert stability. Phenolic provides increased durability and a more solid feel when you play. The new Z² shaft is stiffer than the previous Z shaft, which produces less deflection. The previous Z shaft has 38% less deflection than a conventional shaft. New Z² shaft has 51% less deflection than a conventional shaft.
More Predator features:A composite shaft insert combines with a proprietary ferrule to reduce cue buckle and deflection. The same flex gives you more accuracy and more power and also reduces vibration. The proprietary ferrule allows the tip to stay on the ball longer, giving more spin control and better feel. The most impressive quality about the Predator shaft is it's solid feel and it’s radial consistency, which means the cue shoots the same no matter how you hold it. The shafts are constructed with ten precision pie shaped pieces of northern hard-rock white maple with grain aligned toward the center, glued and spliced together so perfectly that you literally can't tell the difference. This gives you a straightness and radial consistency that's simply unequaled in a one-piece shaft. Predator claims their cues will improve your game with one of the most technologically cues every made. Predator is scientifically proven to shoot straighter when you use English, generates more spin, produce an extremely solid feel and its 10 piece splicing creates a flexural consistency unequal by any 1 piece shaft. More than 50% of today’s top 40 ranked professional males trust Predator. On the woman’s tour, 3 out of the 5 top women players use Predator. More than 35,000 competitive players world wide, without compensation use this cue as well. Over 90% of independently surveyed Predator owners felt that playing with Predator improved their game. Tested scientifically with Iron Willie the robot the design is tested to perfectly perform on thousand of pool shots. As a result accuracy is improved by 25% due to the flex design of the shaft. All Predator Cues and Shafts are warranted for life against any manufacturer defect. If the ferrule ever cracks Predator will replace it free of charge.
