If you don't think that Predator shafts don't really work, your crazy. I've alway's been a supporter and user of Predator. Until last night I really didn't know how much the shafts do for my game.

i have never said they don't work. all ld shafts pretty much do what they claim - lower deflection. i have just said i don't like shooting with them very much. but if they fit your game good for you. anything that helps is a plus! keep hittin' 'em well

I will admit that Predator shafts are the best EVER marketed shaft in the pool industry.

I will admit that Predator is one of the top 10 pieces of PLYWood ever built (for pool)

I will also admit that the consistency of Predator shafts (repeatable performance from one shaft to another) is unparalleled. Plywood is plywood.

Call me crazy.. see if I care.

I like deflection! I've used it for so long...I can't play without it.

that's how i feel as well. i started out with meucci back in the late 80's and those things are all about deflecting the ball. the shafts i use now are made by the dick neighbors who made my cue. i just can't shoot well with an ld shaft. but what i said to the op i really mean. some people just shoot lights out with an ld shaft and if that's the case then that's what they should use. it's all about what you like and what makes you comfortable. because that's what will make you play better.

The first sentence in that post makes my eyes cross.

I don't even think I'm straying much off the topic when I share this link here.

Hmmmmmm...'cuz you're used to them? I am thrilled for you that you have found the 'holy grail' of shafts. Personally, I think that when you spend good money for a particular cue, part of the reason for the desire is/should be because of the way that the shaft(s) are tapered to compliment the butt of the cue....it is what made the cue desirable to begin with.

And while you may take offense for someone doggin' your choice of LD shafts...I take an equal amount of offense by people trying to shove the merits of LD shafts down my throat.

Gee Tom,

Can you imagine how difficult it must have been for all the legendary old timers of our game having to play with just a milled down length of natural hardwood? With just a compressed piece of leather for a tip. Wow, a short length of Ivory for a ferrule as well. They must have suffered greatly. Isn't technology wonderful!

I'm not sure what the truth is. Another poster on this thread mentioned marketing. Perhaps thats it. Does someone want to dig up Wimpy and ask what he thinks?
