The Predator Roadline Series is among the finest pool cues a player would ever hope to own. With it’s clean lines and bold veneer, the SP6ON is a pool cue that’s equally at home at a pool hall as it is a professional tournament.
If you’ve ever had the privilege of holding an Roadline series pool cue, then you already know how incredibly balanced it feels. The geniuses at Predator have figured out how to design a nearly perfect cue.
If you’ve never had the chance to actually try a Roadline cue, we’ve got you covered with the Select Billiards Video Review and exclusive photos of the SP6ON from every angle. It’s the next best thing to trying it out for yourself!
Select Billiards’ Video Review:
One of the first things you’ll notice when you look at this cue is that it has no wrap. It’s this lack of wrap that really highlights the beautiful curly maple wood used in the handle. Since the cue has no wrap, it actually holds to your hand quite nicely so even if your hands are a little sweaty, you’ll still stick to the cue really well.
The cue also has 6 beautiful elongated points featuring orange veneer. This really makes the cue “pop” in the forearm and will absolutely get some complements when you go out playing with it.
This cue comes standard with a 314² shaft, which is a 12.75mm shaft with a pro taper. A Z² shaft, which is 11.75mm, is also available if you prefer a narrower shaft. The tip is a laminated Everest Tip which is standard for just about every Predator shaft.
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.
- Z² 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.
I love this cue. At first glance, it could pass for a house cue but when closer inspection is given, it’s really a beautifully designed cue. 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.
