What are the REVO shafts made of?

Predator REVO shafts are made of a proprietary carbon fiber composite. This composite is formed using unidirectional aerospace grade carbon fiber tow impregnated with our proprietary resin and filled with R2 molecular multi-density foam.

How much more accurate are the REVO shafts?

Predator REVO shafts are on average 5-10% more accurate than Predator’s third-generation shafts, depending on the velocity of the cue ball, distance to the object ball, and amount of spin used.

Do the REVO shafts play like Predator spliced shafts?

Predator REVO shafts have even lower deflection than Predator spliced shafts and an even greater hit consistency, but they do feel somewhat different. From their ultra low-friction surface, to the sound they make upon impact with the ball, playing with a Predator REVO shaft is a different experience.

What is the difference between the REVO 12.4 and 12.9 shafts?

The key difference between the REVO 12.4 and 12.9 shafts is their respective diameters. The two sizes were developed to offer players more comfort and varied tip placement options. Because of their low-rise taper, there is only a 3% percent difference in rise between the two models, when measured over the first fourteen inches from the tip. Bridge comfort and tip diameter preference should be the main consideration in electing a preferred REVO shaft diameter.

What joint types are the REVO 12.4 and 12.9 shafts available in?

The Predator REVO shafts are available for Uni-Loc® Quick Release and Uni-Loc Radial® Joints.

Why do REVO shafts sound different on different cues?

Predator REVO shafts have a unique acoustic signature. Because of its build, it is capable of amplifying sound at a much greater rate than wood, providing audible feedback that articulates how each shot was struck. This feedback changes in tone when paired with varying joint collars, inserts, and fitments.

Do Predator REVO shafts come in any other colors?

No, they are only available in carbon matte gray/black. Any attempt to change or modify the color would alter and damage the low-friction surface finish on the shaft and add unnecessary weight.

Is it possible to warp a REVO shaft?

While it may be “possible”, we haven’t been able to achieve this feat. REVO shafts are guaranteed to never warp and feature a limited-lifetime warranty. In testing we placed REVO shafts in a freezer, various high-humidity environments, and even in an oven; each time the shafts held their remarkable straightness.

Can you ding REVO shafts?

Predator REVO shafts are highly ding-resistant and their surface is much stronger than wood. They can be scratched, and sharp edges can cut the finish, but no typical impacts in testing have damaged the REVO shafts’ surface.

Can I change the taper or diameter of a REVO shaft?

No, the taper and the diameter must remain the same. Any change would not only destroy the Predator REVO shafts’ low-friction finish, but would also compromise performance, damaging the micro-thin layers of unidirectional carbon fiber tow and releasing potentially hazardous carbon fiber dust as well.

RETURN TO TOP


Do Predator REVO shafts have a ferrule?

No, Predator REVO shafts do not have a ferrule. Because of the stiffness and strength of the carbon fiber composite construction, there is no need to add the additional weight and mass of a ferrule to the shafts’ construction. Doing so would decrease the shafts’ superb accuracy.

Can you change the tip on REVO shafts?

Yes, you can change the tip on any REVO shaft. We recommend only having the tip replaced at an authorized Predator Repair Center. Due to the shaft’s more complex construction, extra care must be used in changing the tip, insuring that the shaft isn’t sanded and the Vault Plate and V-Tek tip silencer maintain their appropriate dimensions.

Why do REVO shafts come with a soft tip?

Because of the increased stiffness and energy transfer of REVO shafts, our testing indicated players preferred a somewhat softer tip, and for that reason we elected to make the Predator Victory Soft Tip standard.

Can I break with a REVO shaft?

Yes, you can break with a REVO playing shaft; it’s strong enough, but it is not optimized for breaking. Its construction was developed as a playing shaft. The Predator BK-RUSH features a break optimized REVO BK-R carbon fiber composite break shaft.

How do you maintain or clean a REVO shaft’s surface?

Never use abrasives or chemicals on a REVO shaft; doing so will damage the shaft’s surface and performance. To clean a REVO shaft’s surface, simply brush off any exterior dirt with the supplied microfiber cleaning cloth, and then wipe the shaft with a REVO cleaning wipe or a soft cloth treated with isopropyl alcohol (90%).
