Predator 314-3 Review

Reloaded with new technology, the 314-3 features stronger high-tech materials and even better game changing performance. This low-deflection shaft is one of the most popular in billiards.

The 314-3 is the all around athlete and our most forgiving shaft at the same time. It is the preferred taper and diameter of countless champions, now even more accurate and stronger than before with the addition of V-Tek components. Stiffer than a Z-3, but not as stiff as Vantage.

Predator was founded in 1994 by Allan McCarty who wanted to bring consistency to billiards by leading innovation for the sport and making the best low-deflection shafts, playing cues and break cues. The first Predator shaft was the 314 which is the choice of a number of top Pro pool players including Ralf Souquet and Jasmin Ouschan.

What’s great about this shaft is that it is a lot more consistent than a wooden cue. It won’t warp in hot weather and is a lot easier to clean than a traditional wooden cue. The shaft is also able to absorb vibrations a lot more than a wooden one, so it will always have a smooth feel.

The Predator 314-3 is available from PoolDawgs for $139 (link). This is a great price for such an amazing shaft and it will definitely be worth the money. The best part is that you can customize it in your order so you will get exactly what you want. This includes the tip, weight and other factors, so it’s a really good deal.
