There's a reason it's called Predator!
Ask any of the more than 65 percent of the nation's top-ranked male
pros who've chosen our shafts for their exceptional accuracy why our
cues can't be compared to others--or ask beginning and intermediate
players how Predator takes their performance places it's never been.
Your best game is out there--hunt it down with the power of Predator.
Continuous Revolutionary Concepts!
When Allan McCarty and Steve Titus initially began their pool cue
research, their main goal was to understand the physics of the pool cue
in order to improve its performance. They designed a robot named Iron
Willie that played a key role in their research. Iron Willie was able
to hold all variables constant and reproduce a consistent stroke and
therefore allowing scientific and quantitative analysis of different
cues and technologies. This enabled McCarty and Titus to understand how
different materials and constructions contributed to performance. Thus
began a continuous innovation process and search for the ultimate
The first key finding was that maintaining accuracy is difficult when it comes to putting English on the ball. The reason?
Cue ball deflection which pushes the cue ball off your line of aim. The
314 shaft and later the Z shaft technologies were developed to reduce
this variable, making the game easier.
Our researchers are relentless. New ideas and revolutionary concepts
are continuously born at Predator. Numerous patents have been granted
and exciting products are always on the horizon.
