High performance shaft with Predator's latest technology
Predator Vantage Shaft for Uni-Loc Joint with Thin Black Collar
The high-performance Predator Vantage Shaft for Uni-Loc® Original joints with a thin black collar will match all Predator cues made after 2002, as well as Lucasi cues and some custom cues.
Introducing Vantage, the newest member of the Predator shaft family. Vantage Shaft Technology is designed and developed to provide increased shaft stiffness and velocity with Predator’s proven accuracy and control, and is fitted to leverage your abilities. Vantage features our all-new V-Tek front end technology, iMatch splicing, ProV Taper, and the eight layer Victory Tip, the next evolution in shaft performance has arrived.
The re-engineered front end construction incorporates the patent pending vault plate. The vault plate completely re-configures the stress points between the tip, tip silencer, ferrule, and splices to create a construction that is stronger from every axis with less mass and a higher level of kinetic energy transfer.
Our proprietary formula allows Predator to create it’s own highly specific ferrule material. V-Tek Ferrules are not only stronger, but also lighter, reducing mass and increasing accuracy.
V-Tek Fiber Tip Silencing
Our proprietary blend creates a stronger and more tactile glueing surface, while creating an audibly pleasing sound upon contact with the ball.
iMatch is our patented process in which every single triangle is tested for density, mass, and stiffness for optimum pairing resulting in better shaft consistency and playability.
10-Piece North American Hard Maple
Hand selected and kiln dried, only the highest grade North American Maple goes into every Predator Shaft.
Finishing with a 12.9mm tip diameter, the all-new ProV taper provides unparalleled static stiffness, besting the 314-2 by 10 percent and the Z-2 by 30 percent. This increase in stiffness creates a stronger “spine” inside the Vantage shaft allowing for increased mass reduction at the front end.
Eight layers of pure performance, each tip is constructed to the most exacting standards and was developed to maintain optimum compression for the entire life of the tip. Its high contrast color allows for better sighting and shaping.
Greater than the sum of its parts
The all-new Predator Vantage shaft delivers increased rotation and accuracy through it’s unique combination of strength, stiffness, and mass. This recipe for performance allows players to play more spin at a higher velocity, with not only less effort, but with more consistency than ever before.
