Intimidator i-Shafts

The i-Shaft’s carbon fiber core extends from ferrule to joint, stabilizing the entire shaft for absolute control and predictability. This virtually eliminates the inconsistencies found in traditional maple shafts, resulting in total control at all shot speeds.

Triple-Layer Carbon Fiber Core

  1. Unidirectional fibers
  2. High-strength composite fibers for exceptional durability and hoop-strength
  3. Ultra-small diameter and unidirectional carbon fiber core

i-Shaft Construction

Intimidator i-Shafts allow players to change power and spin-rate to maximize the speed and accuracy of their shot. The patented i-Shaft system has identified the variable characteristics required in your game (Power, Control and Feel). Utilizing our proprietary Intimidator Carbon Energy Technology (ICE), we have designed the industry’s most radial consistent shaft to help maintain accuracy at all speeds.


Tenon Tip Technology

The i-Shaft’s Tenon Tip Technology transfers energy from the tip into the carbon fiber core producing a solid hit that maximizes the speed and accuracy of your shot.


Radial Consistency

Radial consistency is the shaft’s ability to perform the same way on every shot, regardless of its orientation. The carbon fiber core technology found in the i-Shaft makes it the most radial consistent shaft on the market. The i-Shaft will consistently provide a straighter cue ball path, minimizing the need to compensate for spin and throw.


Kamui™ Black Tip
The Kamui™ Black tip consists of the highest quality Japanese pigskin leather. It has a higher porosity, allowing the tip to hold its shape and chalk more effectively. The enhanced cue ball grip results in more control and accuracy with less force.

More Control   More Accuracy   More Chalk   Less Mushroom
Kamui™ tips create more ball spin with less force. Increased spin on the cue ball means increased playability.   Kamui™ tips limit squirt and deflection by gripping the cue ball. Your shots will be consistently more accurate.   Kamui™ tips hold more chalk because the high quality leather has more porosity. More chalk means less miscues.   Kamui™ tips are specially treated to resist shape distortion and mushrooming of the sides of the tip.
