Predator 3rd Gen Shaft technology
The variables involved in creating the most the accurate shafts in the world are numerous. The unique relationships between front-end mass, material strength, wood grain density, and stiffness all play a role in how a shaft performs. Starting with the all-new Vantage and now in the third generation 314 and Z, we’ve refined that equation even further, creating the most dynamic and accurate shafts we’ve ever produced.
Vault Plate and 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 it’s 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.
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.
