- 3rd generation and Vantage: The tip can be replaced. When the tip is replaced, the tip silencer must not be removed. If the tip silencer is removed, the front-end technology and the performance of the shaft will be compromised.
- BK2, BK3, AIR2 shafts: The tip can be replaced. When the tip is replaced, the carbon fiber plate under the tip must not be removed. Leave .020″ of the brown phenolic before gluing on the replacement tip. If the carbon fiber plate is removed, the shaft may break under pressure and will not be covered under warranty.
First preference is 3M’s DP420 or DP460. This epoxy had the strongest adhesiveness to the tip silencer during our testing. A second option is West system’s G5 glue. Other super glues had high failure right during our testing process.
Yes, otherwise the risk of the ferrule breaking is high and the performance of the shaft will be changed.
The shaft must be sent to an authorized repair center, preferably our Predator customer service center.
The ferrule is only covered if it is a manufactured defect. If the shaft has had any work on the front end, outside of our Predator customer service center, the shaft is not covered by warranty.
Due to the front-end technology, the repair can only be completed by Predator customer service center. If a repair shop does any work on the shaft, the warranty will be voided and the shaft performance will be compromised.
The shaft needs to be sent to Predator customer repair center to be evaluated so it can be replaced or repaired. If the ferrule comes off, please ship the ferrule with the shaft as well for inspection.
The shaft must be returned to customer service center to be repaired or replaced for a $75 charge.
