EPOCH MEN'S DEFENSE/LSM
Since the beginning Epoch’s number one goal has always been to give players the most innovative and technological advanced equipment. In 2011 we took our initial step towards that goal and introduced our ﬁrst Dragonﬂy, setting the bar for lacrosse shafts. Through every subsequent generation of Dragonﬂy shafts, we have engineered and designed Epoch-speciﬁc technologies, giving us an arsenal of innovation no other company has.
CHOOSE YOUR GEOMETRY
CHOOSE YOUR FLEX
With the 60″ Dragonﬂy Elite and Dragonﬂy Pro, Epoch is once again setting the bar for shaft technology and innovation.
Our Player Proﬁles for each shaft; Speed, Dynamic, and Power are designed for a speciﬁc style of play in relation to Flex iQ options.
POWER PLAYER PROFILE
Designed for close defenders who defend hard, throw precision checks and look to get the ball up the field as quickly as possible. Engineered to be stiffer for when you are in close around the goal and also when you need to throw a quick outlet pass from deep in the corner to get the ball up field.
SPEED PLAYER PROFILE
Specifically designed to be used by the aggressive LSM or offensive minded defender. This Dragonfly shaft is strong enough to defend the goal, and engineered to bring the ball across midfield for players looking for the assist or shot on goal. The iQ8 is a softer flex giving you more flex when shooting which will translate to more power for the 60” Dragonfly.
DRAGONFLY 60" DEFENSE/LSM
The Dragonfly 60″ Defense/LSM shaft is for elite level defenders who want exceptional control and ultimate performance out of their gear. Engineered with nearly all of Epoch’s proprietary technologies, it breaks through the limits of performance.
Power – Flex iQ2xl (C60xl ONLY): You’re a close defender who needs extra mass for checks and driving the opponent away from the net.
Power – Flex iQ3: You defend hard, throw precision checks, and look to get the ball up the field as quickly as possible.
Speed – Flex iQ8: You consider yourself an aggressive LSM or offensive-minded defender who’s looking for more out of his gear. You need a shaft that is strong enough to defend the goal with a soft enough flex to bring the ball through transition as you look for the assist or shot on goal
Our proprietary 12K Intelligent Weave Technology is designed to stabilize the hands and push energy towards the head of the stick when passing or shooting. It allows for a more uniform construction of the shaft as the carbon filaments in each tow (row) are spread out to create a thinner woven fabric by reducing crimp for increased weight reduction while providing optimal mechanical performance and minimal voids in the layup.
Active / Responsive Zone:
Uniform Release provides a consistent flex profile throughout the top 2/3 of the shaft regardless of a player’s hand positioning. Our engineers agree this is substantially beneficial over a localized “kick point” or flex point, because unlike golf or hockey a player’s hands are always moving depending on the player’s position on the field.
FULL 3K WEAVE
Featured on Dragonfly Elite C, E, X 60″ iq3, iQ2(C’s only), and 40″
Epoch has engineered specific shafts with a Full 3k weave to cater toward certain player profiles. Certain Dragonfly Elite shafts have been engineered with a layup that utilizes a Full 3k Weave on the outer layer of the shaft. This helps increase the durability and performance of the shafts
THE TECH YOU GET. . .
Epoch’s Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.), HD Resin, Surface Veil Technology (S.V.T.), and Reload Technology is engineered to increase durability and expertly control certain aspects of performance like flex and release point. Unique to the Dragonfly Elite is Epoch’s Intelligent Weave Technology that’s designed to stabilize the hands and push energy towards the head of the stick when passing or shooting, therein maximizing performance.
