|WHICH PREDATOR LOW-DEFLECTION SHAFT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?|
Selecting the right shaft for your game, is often an equation as complex as making them, and itís for that reason that the Vantage, 314, and Z offer different advantages and compromises to suit your unique stroke and playing style.
Vantage is the thickest, stiffest, strongest, and has the lowest front-end mass of the line-up. That may be suprising, but with the increased strength and spine of our ProV taper, Vantage shafts are stronger, allowing for increased mass reduction at the front-end.
Z-3 is lean, mean and has the most flex. Its smaller diameter paired with V-Tek construction allows for an extremely light front-end and pin-point tip placement. The Z-3, is 4% lighter at the front-end than the Z-2 and is considerably stronger.
314-3 is the all around athlete. Stiffer than a Z-3, but not as stiff as Vantage, the preferred taper and diameter of countless champions is even more accurate than before. With the addition of V-Tek construction, the 314-3 is 3% lighter than the 314-2 at the front-end and even stronger than before.
Improve, Achieve, Review, Evolve.|
Introducing Vantage, the newest member of the Predator shaft family. Designed and developed to provide increased shaft stiffness and velocity with Predatorís proven accuracy and control, Vantage is fitted to leverage your abilities. Featuring our all-new V-Tek front end technology, iMatch splicing, ProV Taper, and the eight layer Victory Tip, the next evolution in shaft performance has arrived.
|Vault Plate & V-Tek Construction|
The re-engineered front end construction incorporates the patent pending vault plate. The vault plate completely re-configures the stress points between the tip, tip silencer, ferrule, and splices to create a construction that is stronger from every axis with less mass and a higher level of kinetic energy transfer.
Our proprietary formula allows Predator to create itís own highly specific ferrule material. V-Tek Ferrules are not only stronger, but also lighter, reducing mass and increasing accuracy.
V-Tek Fiber Tip Silencing
Our proprietary blend creates a stronger and more tactile glueing surface, while creating an audibly pleasing sound upon contact with the ball.
|Intelligent Match Enhanced Maple Pairing (iMatch)|
iMatch is our patented process in which every single triangle is tested for density, mass, and stiffness for optimum pairing resulting in better shaft consistency and playability.
10-Piece North American Hard Maple
Hand selected and kiln dried, only the highest grade North American Maple goes into every Predator Shaft.
|Increased Static Stiffness|
Predator ProV Taper
Finishing with a 12.9mm tip diameter, the all-new ProV taper provides unparalleled static stiffness, besting the 314-2 by 10 percent and the Z-2 by 30 percent. This increase in stiffness creates a stronger ďspineĒ inside the Vantage shaft allowing for increased mass reduction at the front end.
|More Spin Less Deflection|
Eight layers of pure performance, each tip is constructed to the most exacting standards and was developed to maintain optimum compression for the entire life of the tip. Its high contrast color allows for better sighting and shaping.
Greater than the sum of its parts
The all-new Predator Vantage shaft delivers increased rotation and accuracy through itís unique combination of strength, stiffness, and mass. This recipe for performance allows players to play more spin at a higher velocity, with not only less effort, but with more consistency than ever before.
