I love this shaft 28/03/2012Predator Z Shaft 2nd Generation Pool Cue ShaftI just started using the Z2 predator shaft and I love its accuracy. Having played for 16 years I am used to naturally factor in deflection when using extreme English so I am learning just stop doing that because this shaft literally has almost zero deflection. I love that its thinner and more precise. I highly recommend it anyone that loves this game as much as I do. I also want to thank Mariah from pooldawg customer support she was a great help by changing my shipping because of an oversight from their website. Thanks Mariah I got my cue right on time.I would recommend this product to a friend.
