I have no problem paying $2K+ for a custom player....but $700 for a break cue is ridiculous. Even if it cost only $200 more than the BK3 because of the revo shaft, it's just for Breaking!

Probably just trying to cash in before break cues are banned.

What makes it different than the previous BK cues? Just the shaft?

It doesn't matter if you win or lose, it's whether or not you beat the spread.

Where can you buy it? Checked Seyberts and it's not there yet. I saw it advertised on Facebook but no link to purchase.

If you want one, Rick at Seybert's could probably get one to you before anyone else.

It's what the market will bear. Predator is no longer a pool company. It is a cash manufacturing marketing machine. $500 for a Revo? Please. I know guys that have both Revos but whatever floats your boat. I'm one of the fools that says it's good to have comfortable equipment, shafts with comfortable tapers and thickness, but it's still the indian, not the arrow that can read the table.


Pool may not build character but it certainly will reveal it.

I have absolutely no problem with the people who wouldn't mind spending the money for the BK-Rush. If they feel it's worth their money, God Bless them. I'm not some jealous socialist. I'm just saying, they are a minority amongst all the pool players. It's certainly not for the masses, which includes me.

Just the same I'd love to see reviews and how this compares to the Mezz break cues in the $500 range.

I agree. It's their money. I'm of the camp that technique and timing on the break shot is more important than the break stick. Make a ball on the break and leave the cue ball smack in the center of the table. Hopefully you can do ti consistently. All the money in the world won't buy that.

People spend 750-800 on a dymundwood j/b so everyone saying overpriced are too funny.

You don't own one yet and will give Predator more money if you buy it. Of course that holds true for pretty much any product LOL, look at the iPhone craze every time they change a color or move or remove a jack, seems half the planet is in line waiting to buy it to replace their 1 year of phones.

I totally agree... Some times the Tip can help. But you are correct buddy.


Hope.., is not a Tactic.
