How It Actually Plays:

  • 314² Shaft (12.75mm)
    • Hitting the ball with slow speed, the ball hit the far rail at about 1″, maybe 1 1/4″ inch. 
    • Hitting the ball with medium speed, the ball hit the far rail at the 2″ mark.
    • Hitting the ball with a firm speed, the ball hit the far rail at the 3″ mark.
  • Shaft (11.75mm)
    • Hitting the ball with slow speed, the ball hit the far rail a little under the 1″ mark.
    • Hitting the ball with medium speed, the ball hit the far rail just a little over the 1″ mark but less than 2″.
    • Hitting the ball with firm speed, the ball hit the far rail right around 2.5″ mark.
  • 314 FAT ² Shaft (13.2 mm)
    • Hitting the ball with slow speed, the ball hit the far rail a little over the 1″ mark.
    • Hitting the ball with medium speed, the ball hit the far rail at right about the 2″ mark.
    • Hitting the ball with firm speed, the ball hit the far rail right a tiny bit over the 2.5″ mark.

Final Thoughts:

This is truly a great “all around” cue. It’s got a beautiful design that’s equally appealing to both male and female players. Play-wise, it’s suitable for both beginners and advanced players. It’s an Entry Level cue for the Predator line. You really can’t go wrong with this cue.
