The ultimate in billiards technology and performance. Made of carbon fiber composite, REVO shafts incorporate more than twenty years of technological innovation and testing. REVO shafts feature the lightest front end mass, the lowest rate of rise taper, greatest radial consistency, and most durable construction. The result? The most accurate billiards shaft in the world at both low and high speeds, featuring the smoothest finish, the most spin, and uncompromising durability and strength
- Uni-Loc® Steel-Lite Quick Release™ Joint
- BK Hybrid Tip
- 12.9 mm
The BK-Hybrid Tip is comprised of seven layers of premium leather injected with Predator's hybrid additive to create a powerful tip that transfers more energy, resulting in increased cue ball control and chalk adhesion.
The R-Break shield is developed from FR4 composite that proved the pwer of a phenolic break tip - with the control of the BK Hybrid Tip.
V-TEK Fiber Tip Silencer
The V-TEK Tip Silencer creates a stronger and more tactile gluing surface that protects the Vault Plate, while creating an audibly pleasing sound upon contact with the ball
REVO CARBON COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION
Unidirectional Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber Tow Woven fibers have long been the expected standard of carbon fiber construction, but they are not necessarily the best for every application. We have long recognized both the strength and the function of carbon fiber weave, however, recent advances in fiber technology and construction techniques have led Predator to take a different design approach. Previously, a woven fabric was the norm for the outermost covering of any carbon component. Now, new aerospace grade carbon fiber tow construction methods and new fiber placement theories allow us to tune the shaft by orienting the carbon fiber tow in the directions most suitable for a particular location in the shaft itself. This composite is formed using unidirectional aerospace grade carbon fiber tow impregnated with our proprietary resin and filled with R2 molecular multi-density foam.
REVO LOW RISE TAPER
The low-rise taper is the result of the REVO 12.4 and 12.9 shafts’ unique construction and strength. This build allows for an extremely straight taper that only increases five percent on the REVO 12.9 and eight percent on the REVO 12.4, over the first fourteen inches of the shaft.
Low-Friction Surface Finish
The extremely smooth and maintainable REVO shaft surface is created by our specially developed carbon fiber polishing process. This process involves measuring the shaft’s surface. Using a diamond stylus profilometer we measure every shaft and maintain a strict tolerance we call “Predator’s surface finish motif” which keeps the shaft from being either under polished (creating a less than desirable rough finish) or over polished (creating a glossy or sticky surface often exhibited on low-quality fiberglass composite shafts).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Why do REVO shafts sound different on different cues?
Predator REVO shafts have a unique acoustic signature. Because of its build, it is capable of amplifying sound at a much greater rate than wood, providing audible feedback that articulates how each shot was struck. This feedback changes in tone when paired with varying joint collars, inserts, and fitments.
Do Predator REVO shafts come in any other colors?
No, they are only available in carbon matte gray/black. Any attempt to change or modify the color would alter and damage the low-friction surface finish on the shaft and add unnecessary weight.
Is it possible to warp a REVO shaft?
While it may be “possible”, we haven’t been able to achieve this feat. REVO shafts are guaranteed to never warp and feature a limited-lifetime warranty. In testing we placed REVO shafts in a freezer, various high-humidity environments, and even in an oven; each time the shafts held their remarkable straightness.
Can you ding REVO shafts?
Predator REVO shafts are highly ding-resistant and their surface is much stronger than wood. They can be scratched, and sharp edges can cut the finish, but no typical impacts in testing have damaged the REVO shafts’ surface.
Do Predator REVO shafts have a ferrule?
No, Predator REVO shafts do not have a ferrule. Because of the stiffness and strength of the carbon fiber composite construction, there is no need to add the additional weight and mass of a ferrule to the shafts’ construction. Doing so would decrease the shafts’ superb accuracy.
Can you change the tip on REVO shafts?
Yes, you can change the tip on any REVO shaft. We recommend only having the tip replaced at an authorized Predator Repair Center. Due to the shaft’s more complex construction, extra care must be used in changing the tip, insuring that the shaft isn’t sanded and the Vault Plate and V-Tek tip silencer maintain their appropriate dimensions
How do you maintain or clean a REVO shaft’s surface?
Never use abrasives or chemicals on a REVO shaft; doing so will damage the shaft’s surface and performance. To clean a REVO shaft’s surface, simply brush off any exterior dirt with the supplied microfiber cleaning cloth, and then wipe the shaft with a REVO cleaning wipe or a soft cloth treated with isopropyl alcohol (90%).
Predator REVO shafts have a lifetime warranty against any manufacturer defect INCLUDING warpage
