3142 and Z2 Shafts
The second generation of our notorious 314 and Z shafts is one for the ages. Thanks to an improved tip, shorter ferrule and new joint system, you get better performance, incredible longevity and a satisfyingly solid feel. And with re- engineered front-ends for even greater accuracy, the enhanced technology of the 3142 and Z2 shafts will give you the ultimate playing experience.
WHAT FITS MY GAME?
More accurate than conventional pool cues, Z2 tops the list when it comes to nailing your shot. For those who prefer a more traditional shape but don’t want to sacrifice accuracy, 3142 offers the perfect solution.
SPIN & CUE BALL CONTROL PREFERENCE
Both 3142 and Z2 shafts provide greater control and reduce deflection, meaning more possibilities for placement around the table. The Z2 is like a supercharged shaft and requires a more consistent tip placement, while the 3142 is more forgiving.
Predator’s 3142 has the feel of a traditional taper, also known as a Pro taper, which feels consistent and comfortable when held in your hand. Z2 boasts a stronger taper that you will feel getting progressively bigger along its length. Picking the right shaft for you is all about which option you’re most comfortable with.
Even the most advanced player has to account for cue ball deflection. Predator’s cutting-edge shaft technology reduces the error factor, making it easier to pocket balls using english. The more accurate shots you get with 3142 and Z2 shafts are a result of Predator’s significantly lighter and more flexible shafts. Rather than the shaft pushing the ball out of line, the cue ball actually pushes the shaft aside – exactly what you’ll do to your opponents.
Unequaled by any one-piece shaft, Predator’s unique 10-piece splicing construction eliminates grain directionality and is part of the reason why players who use 3142 and Z2 shafts experience more consistency in their shots. Those are results you can count on.
Predator produces more spin than any conventional cue, which makes it easier to draw, follow and move your cue ball around the table. Check the right column to see which shaft best fits your style of play.
Nobody likes buzz, that negative feedback you get when you hit with a sub-par cue. The technology in 3142 and Z2 shafts eliminates that vibration, so you get pure, positive feedback on every shot and can play with the confidence that comes from a sturdy, solid feel. Bad vibes are a thing of the past.
