claims on cracked points to cues 314-2 and Z-2, we acknowledge there have been
a batch of pointers which have presented problems and these tended to break
more than other. However, not all our 314-2 and Z-2 cues are defected. There
are other reasons that make points break or crack. Some players use sandpaper,
which causes the diameter of the cues to reduce, weakening it and making the
cue to crack or disassemble (or separate lumps or cracks to appear).
the above, it is very important for a pachometer to be used in order ot
determine the minimum diameter when a client claims a point or cue is cracked.
(We use a digital pachometer). This is why we require a fotograph of the cue to
be measured. Should the diameter of the cue be inferior to the minimum diameter
listed on our website, the limited lifetime warranty shall not cover for the
damage. Please access the information on wodden cues in the graph below. The
minimum diameters for cues 314-2 and Z-2 are highlighted in yellow. Please also
note there are minimum diameters and minimum thickness for Vantage, Z-3, 314-3,
as indicated on the graph.
manufacturer of the highest qualitity billiard on the current, Predator
products (Predator) is commited to the performance and durability of its
its investment, Predator offers a limited lifetime warranty covering for
manufacturing defects. Please note this warranty does not cover for problems
resulting from wood deformation or abuse.
Predator solely assures the buyer the original product for the time he/she
possess it, the item must be free of material and labour defects under regular
usage. This limited lifetime warranty is intransferable and does not apply to
defects subsequent to:
abrasion; (B) change, bad usage, abuse or inadequate maintenance; and/or (c)
damage related to exposure to extreme temperature or humidity.
This limited lifetime warranty is applicable to products purchased from
retailers authorised by Predator. Predator cues manufactured for Uniloc and
Radial® thread are guaranteed only when combined with original Uniloc and
wood will absorb humidity in humid climate and release humidity in dry climate.
So as to avoid deformation or problems related to cue finishing, the cues must
be stored in an environment with stable temperature holding a humidity level
between 45 and 50 per cent.
cues are not designed to endure lateral pressure and must not be leaned or
supported against a wall, dropped, excessively bent while playing, nor hit
against the tables. The use of an appropriate case to protect the cues is
Diameter of the cue:
diameter of the cue to a lower one is not recommended. The diameter of the cues
has been designed bearing in mind the necessary precision for the intended
performance. Should you select a lower diameter, please be aware that any
Predator cue with a lower diameter, or sandpapered below the acceptable limits
shall imply the automatic cancelling of the warranty for the cue.
Replacement of the point:
If you wish
to replace the point of your Predator 314-3, Z3, Vantage or Vantage 3C cue, do
not remove the frey plaque (dark silencer point) under the tip, for that will
reduce the strength of the cue and null the warranty. The silencer point must
keep, at least, 0,010 "(0,25 milimetres) width so as to sustain the
integrity of the cue. If you need to replace the silencer point, reach client
support or an authorized Predator repair centre.
Replacement of phenolic cue tips:
If you intend
to replace the phenolic cue tip on a BK2 / BK3 or Air / Ar2 cue, do not remove
the black carbon fiber point plaque under the brown phenolic tip, as that will
result in the reduction of the strength of the cue and null the warranty. A
0,020" (0,5 mm) brown phenolic must always be kept before the replacement
cue tip is glued.
Maintenance of the cue:
In order to
clean the Predador cue, use a towel lightly moistened with alcohol. After the
cleaning, use a leather or similar material cloth to seal the lumps on the cue.
Use Carnuba wax to help seal the lumps on the cue and to protet it from
humidity. So as to avoid damage, do not use sandpaper or other abrasive
material! No not expose the cue to excessive humidity. Important, do not use
any waterbased cleaning product.
Uni-Loc Joints: We recommend the cleaning of Uni-Loc and Quick Release Original
joints when you receive your cue and every six months. Those joints are
manufactured for exact tolerance and even a small amount of dirt may cause a
problem. A Q-tip soaked in isopropyl alcohol may be used to clean the thread on
the inside and the puncture for cue insertion. Always clean the pin with
alcohol and a clean cloth. We recommend the use of protection to help maintain
the joint clean and protect it from damage.
Much of the
performance of the cue may be placed upon the conception of the point and its
composition. Due to the material in use to improve the performance of the
point, scratches may appear from regular use. In this case, we recommend the
sending of the cue to an authorized cleaning Predator repair centre. Removal or
change of the point will null the warranty.
Cleaning of the Grips:
In case of
leather and Uni-Loc grips, Leather LeaGrips, only moist a towel with water,
clean the Grip and immediately dry it. Use isopropyl alcohol for Irish linen
official Predator Logotype is not on the partial cue, the limited lifetime
warranty is null.
