I've got a 97-10. I'll give you the balance points with the original shaft, custom shaft, and Predator shaft tomorrow.

Hi Kato,
Thanks a lot.I also think of getting the predator shaft along with the cue so it would be great to know the difference in balance.BTW how are you sattisfied with the cue with a predator shaft?Thanks,

Misel, I'm in very early stages of learning to play with this cue. A few things I've noticed:

1) the weight is more "butt end" than my Predator SLP, I had to make an adjustment by moving my right hand further up on the wrap, closer to the center.

2) I've been playing with a softer Triangle tip for the last 5 years or so. This Predator shaft came with a Moori med-hard. That's different.

3) The combination of the Helmstetter butt, the Predator shaft, the Moori tip hits like a complete MONSTER!!!!!! My game doesn't do it justice.

By the way, I'm satisfied and getting more satisfied every day.

just about 19 1/2 from the tip of the butt cap is where my amatuer measured balance point lies.
