After 20 years of research and development, the future of carom cue sports has arrived. Welcome to the revolution – introducing the Predator REVO 3C-S and 3C-U carbon fiber composite 3-Cushion shafts. These precision shafts, developed and manufactured at our research and development facility just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, are an advancement embraced by some of the best carom players in the world. Predator REVO shafts stand at the apex of precision and performance.
The ultimate in billiards technology and performance. With an Ultra-Low Deflection front-end designed specifically to reduce the cue ball deflection error factor, the REVO 3C-U shaft is the most precise and the most accurate shaft in the world. The result? You don’t need to correct and adjust for cue ball deflection. The ball goes where you aim it and you can just trust it. The accuracy benefit of 3C-U is even greater when you are not performing at your best or when you are under pressure during a match.
In addition to giving you the highest accuracy, REVO 3C-U also gives you the same benefits as REVO 3C-S featuring the most spin, the smoothest finish, and uncompromising durability and strength.
► For players who are already using a low deflection shaft and who want the ultimate accuracy and consistency.
► For beginner or intermediate players who want to progress faster and leverage the accuracy benefits of low deflection.
Players seeking to improve need to increase their success rate on very thin shots that are difficult to do consistently. REVO 3C carbon fiber technology produces consistent repeatability that you can trust, regardless of how you hold your shaft. Improving your execution and making your training more efficient, REVO 3C helps you increase your success rate on shots that you already know, add more of these difficult shots to your repertoire, and ultimately increases your options on the table.
If you have a preferred weight range for your shaft, you can now choose your shaft weight from 4 different categories:

► PERFECT ROTATION CONTROL
Predator REVO 3C shafts consistently deliver a better transfer of energy thanks to the strength and stability of carbon fiber, making it easy to reproduce the same degree of spin every time.
► DELIVER MAXIMUM QUALITY WITH LESS EFFORT
Easier spin means that you don’t need to force your stroke and trade away finesse and precision. Thanks to REVO 3C, shot solutions that call for maximum spin plus high velocity now require less effort to deliver. As a result, you get better quality and improve your precision.
► REPEATABILITY YOU CAN TRUST
Predator’s proprietary carbon fiber weave pattern combined with exacting tolerances for manufacturing gives REVO 3C repeatable performance far superior to that of wood or any other synthetic material shaft.
► PRECISION THAT BOOSTS CONFIDENCE
In 3-Cushion, being consistent on sensitive hits is critical to improve your level. REVO 3C’s consistency makes difficult shots more accessible, and gives you more options on the table.
► MORE QUALITY SPIN SHOTS
Most players usually lose precision when trying to generate more velocity. With REVO 3C, you get more control because you don’t have to put as much power into the shot to get the same action on the cue ball.
► CONFIDENCE TO WIN MORE GAMES
Reliable performance combined with a better control of spin results in less mistakes and gives you more confidence to play those difficult shots. REVO 3C is your key to making more points and winning more games.
► ULTRA SMOOTH FINISH
Highly resistant to dings, dirt, and wear and tear, REVO 3C also keeps its unique smooth finish regardless of the humidity level and is easy to clean.
► WARP RESISTANT
No matter where you travel or what the weather is like, your REVO 3C will stay straight thanks to its carbon fiber construction designed specifically for billiards.
REVO shafts feature a Limited-lifetime warranty against warpage.
► EVOLVING FROM TRADITIONAL CONICAL TAPERS THAT DISTORT YOUR ALIGNMENT
Traditional wooden carom shafts need a strong or conical taper in order to maintain the stiffness necessary to hit the heavier carom balls with extreme side and withstand all of the lateral forces that come with that impact. However, the conical taper causes the tip to move diagonally away from the bridge hand as you stroke, affecting the impact point of the tip on the ball and making precise aiming more difficult. The REVO 3C carom shafts are made of carbon composite, which is naturally much stiffer and stronger than wood. This allowed us to design a taper that is technically more precise to aim with.
► MODIFIED CONICAL TAPER FOR A CONSTANT ALIGNMENT
Both the REVO 3C-S and 3C-U have the same Modified Conical taper, which tapers up more slowly in the bridging area. REVO 3C's new taper design and its slower increase in the bridging area leverage the stiffness of the carbon materials to maintain constant cueing alignment throughout the practice strokes and impact. This improved geometry eliminates adjusting for the conical taper bias and gives your game more precision.
