Tash, what shaft came with your 8k predator? I have heard of many people putting a predator shaft on a different makers butt, but it is unusual for a predator butt user to put an another companies shaft.
The thing I like about the predator is the consistency.
Does anyone know anything about the new shafts? When Predator went from the Break Cue to Break 2 they really only changed the tip. Is there anything really new about these new shafts.
I have used Predator products for years. I would buy a new product if there is really any upgrade.
I hope to get some info from Pred at the expo in two weeks.
If I get the scoop from them I will update here.
FYI, I hit a few balls with a prototype Z3. Let me just say it was fantastic. Vastly better feel than the Z2. The deflection was ridiculously low. The overall construction seemed great. I was very impressed. I must say those few hits made me want to take a serious look at the 3rd gen shafts. My buddy is now working at a Predator shop near me and tells me that the 314-3 seems to feel and play the best. I suppose that is quite subjective.
Anyway, thought I'd share.
