Adidas Precision XTRX SG
Adidas released the Predator Precision in 2000, right in time for the Euro Championship that summer. It was the fifth rendition of the predator boots to be released and it ended up being the first version where we really saw Adidas modify the shooting technology. Rather than the block rubber panels, they switched to a more trimmed down rib design. Separate panels were placed across the forefoot surface with the intent of providing extra spin on the ball. The fins offered some flex and could easily hold around the shape of the ball as it impacted the boots surface.
