Having read some archive discussion where some members here who have tried out both 12.9 and 12.4 revo and found the 12.9 having less deflection longer pivot point (not by much ) then the 12.4 . I decided to confirm this with Predator itself by sending them an email (email photo below ) asking if its true and that the reason why this is so (as mentioend here ) is because even with the 12.9 " being bigger in diameter than the 12.4, its carbon fiber wall in the shaft end is THINNER than the 12.4 and thus lower shaft end weigth and deflection for the 12.9 . In their reply though they did not discuss about the carbon wall thickness comparison between the 2 they did say and I quote

Thank you for contacting us.

The REVO 12.9mm is the lowest deflection shaft, of the three.

I can also tell you, the most popular of the three, is the REVO 12.4mm.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Sincerely,

Kim Newsome (Predator group )

Kim states the 12.9 Revo is lowest of the three but you state in your post you only asked for differences in the 12.4 and the 12.9mm shafts. I presume she was also comparing your 314 shaft from the 1990s with today's 12.4 and 12.9 Revo. Correct?

Are you more interested in the Revo than the newer 314 shafts? Why?

She's CLUELESS. I've msg'd her more than once and she knows next to ZERO about how shafts actually work. She believes that smaller diameter shafts make the CB squirt more. Bad thing is she will NOT listen to reason at all. She's always been like this since her 'pro' days in Houston. Not a real popular character. Kinda feel bad for Pred. having her answer tech. questions because she's giving out bad info.
