The Most Lethal Names in Billiards Have Joined Forces

Jacksonville, Florida – Poison Billiards, a division of Predator Group, and Hall of Famer, Jeanette Lee, the Black Widow, have joined forces to create an all new line of products, including cues and accessories. 


"It was a natural fit for both of our respective brands and we're very excited about the one-two punch our two teams are creating" said Predator Group Chairman, John Forrester.. 


The initial line of six Poison/Black Widow cues will launch in late July and will feature more design firsts from the convention defying team at Poison.


"I've spent many years crafting my own style, so when we began to discuss things, the look and feel of Poison just felt right. Their design aesthetic paired with their Predator backed performance matched perfectly with my persona. This line will be equally distinctive and lethal, just like me" said Jeanette Lee.


"It's been a real pleasure working with Jeanette on these designs. We're really excited by the collaborative nature of this project and will continue utilizing Jeanette's input as we develop more exciting products" said Kyle Nolan, Predator Group's Director of Branding & Communications.


“Successful partnerships tend to have strong synergies, and a relationship between billiard’s most recognizable athlete, The Black Widow, and Poison Billiards, is a perfect match. This partnership has tremendous potential, not only in the value it could add to the Black Widow and Poison by Predator brands, but also in the value that it could bring to the sport of billiards and its avid consumer base," said Mike Scherer of Octagon Sports Management.
