the Predator

We needed a traditional pintail a while back, so the Predator was enlisted. The original model hangs in my barn. It is a traditional shape with a “soft” bottom and up-rails in the tail. It worked great. It’s a noserider, but was a bit slow for the guy who rides a progressive nine footer. The next generation Predator got lower rails and a hard edge in the tail – wow, what a difference. That speeds up the game to match play and can keep up with any beachbreak or pointbreak. I’m 5’-10” and 165 lbs., so mine is 2-3/4” thick. You can thicken as needed. dm
