Predator Fat Shaft Now Available Worldwide

JACKSONVILLE, FL (December 17, 2008) Players who like the old-school feel and comfort of a thicker, stiffer shaft can purchase Predator's 3142 Fat Shaft from their local dealer beginning in January 2009.
Developed exclusively for Taiwanese professionals, the Fat Shaft boasts a stout 13.2mm tip diameter and the thickest taper of the second generation shaft line. With the same proprietary front-end technology that creates unsurpassed accuracy and 10-piece splicing construction for increased shot-to-shot consistency as the 3142 and Z2, the Fat Shaft delivers unbeatable action with a stiffer feel.
“It's about offering a different fit to better match certain playing styles,” says Karim Belhaj, CEO of The Predator Group. “The Fat Shaft's been met with great enthusiasm by Taiwanese professionals, and we're excited to make it easily available to players everywhere.”
Through the end of 2008, the Fat Shaft is available for purchase exclusively through J&J America and J&J Taiwan, but for the first time, starting in January 2009, the Fat Shaft will be offered through dealers worldwide. The Fat Shaft comes with the Original Uni-Loc® Joint and retails for $279USD.
