Select Billiards’ Video Review:
One of the first things you’ll notice when you look at this cue is that there is no wrap on it. It’s lack of wrap really allows the natural Maple to show and the green and black veneer points provide a stark contrast that grabs your attention without screaming “look at me”.
The cue also has 6 beautiful elongated points featuring green veneer. This really makes the cue “pop” in the forearm and will definitely get some complements when 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 a soft hit, the ball hit the far rail at about 1″, maybe 1 1/4″ inch.
- Hitting the ball with a medium hit, the ball hit the far rail at the 2″ mark.
- Hitting the ball with a firm hit, the ball hit the far rail at the 3″ mark.
- Z² Shaft(11.75mm)
- Hitting the ball with a soft hit, the ball hit the far rail a little under the 1″ mark
- Hitting the ball with a medium hit, the ball hit the far rail just a little over the 1″ mark but less than 2″.
- Hitting the ball with a firm hit, the ball hit the far rail right around 2.5″ mark.
This is a beautiful cue. I love the Curly Maple used in it’s construction and the no-wrap means your hand will stick to it very well. Best of all, this cue will be very easy to keep clean. You can not go wrong with this cue.
