Hey Ya'll,

It been a looong time since I've posted I know. This whole Afghanistan thing is keeping me pretty busy. Anyway I am looking for an original 314 shaft without the predator logo with a silver ring and a 5/16x14 joint. If ANYBODY has seen this type of shaft anywhere it would be greatly appreciated if you would let me know.

Thank You, John

P.S.- Does Carol still give those hugs?????

John,

I don't have the shaft but wanted to say "Hello" and hang in there! Carol is still reputed to give great hugs as well as SPetty.

Just a little bit of information. The logo on the shafts is just a stick-on decal. I have ordered predator blank shafts (shafts for cuemakers to finish with the taper, rings, joint connections, etc. Predator sends the decal along with it to be applied when the shaft is finished. So the presence, or lack thereof, doesn't really mean a whole lot.

pooltchr,

You are right but the first 314 shafts with just 314 on them have a longer ferrule and a 12.75mm taper which I like. The newer 314 shafts have a shorter ferrule and a different taper. Thanks for the post.
