It’s right for you if…

ATTACK/MIDFIELD

Power – Flex iQ2: You’re mainly a step-down shooter who benefits from a stiffer shaft to help transfer energy while passing or shooting.

Power – Flex iQ4xl(C30 only): You’re a versatility player who needs extra mass when playing both offense and defense. You can play defense, shoot on the run or stand and rip a step-down shot.

Dynamic – Flex iQ5: If you’re a player who roams the field and can shoot on the run or stand and rip in a step-down shot.

Speed – Flex iQ9: You rely on a quick release when shooting, dodging, and passing to make tight finishes.

DEFENSE/LSM

Power – Flex iQ2xl(C60xl ONLY): You’re a close defender who needs extra mas 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.

GOALIE

You’re a goalie who makes the stop and then looks to get the ball up the field as quickly as possible. You’re looking for a high-level, stiff shaft that you can rely on to throw a swift pass from deep in the corner. (Flex iQ 2)

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 Intelligenct Weave Elite that’s designed to stabilize the hands and push energy towards the head of the stick when passing or shooting, therein maximizing performance.

We achieve flex by manipulating the orientation of the carbon fiber. Our shaft’s bend when you need it to, but retains its firmness for maximum control. Conventional shafts that tout flex often use fiberglass, a cheaper, less durable material, to increase the bendability. Don’t sacrifice your game, choose Epoch.

HD Resin optimizes the mechanical strength properties especially in impact resistance. Epoch worked with their engineers to make sure the new resin system showed improvement and also worked within their proprietary manufacturing process to produce even better shafts with improved durability. HD Resin improves the overall shaft but also adds direct benefits to each of Epoch’s Technologies, giving you, the player, a better shaft and increased performance for your game

Surface Veil Technology(S.V.T.) gives another layer of added protection and is a layer of very thin fabric that is used in the military and aerospace manufacturing, wrapped on the outside of the carbon. When the SVT goes through the manufacturing process, it is heated to become part of the carbon fiber layup, which boosts toughness on the field

The Dragonfly Select is Made in America with Pride. With access to the world’s best engineers, raw materials and the latest manufacturing processes. Epoch continues to lead the development of technology in the lacrosse by designing, engineering, manufacturing in-house.

Our Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.) Elite is engineered for the best of the best. A.C.L. Elite uses advanced materials and layers low F.A.W., uni-directional carbon fiber pre-preg in a specific manner we can control several aspects of the shaft’s performance, including flex, durability, weight and release point.

The Dragonfly Pro utilizes unidirectional carbon fiber prepreg with a lower Fiber Areal Weight (F.A.W. )  than conventional shafts.  These smaller, lighter fibers allow for a tighter orientation of the carbon fiber. More fibers equals increased durability.

Torque Box Elite technology is designed to maintain the continuity of the shaft’s geometry and maximize energy transfer to the head during a pass or shot. As a conventional composite shaft flexes, the natural geometry of the shaft can be compromised initiating ovalization of the shaft, resulting in the loss of energy. Torque Box Elite technology improves and optimizes the transfer of energy in the shaft, maximizing performance and playability.  

When passing or shooting, a load is introduced to the shaft causing it to flex back, which causes the carbon fibers to be stretched along the front of the shaft and compressed along the back. Reload Technology takes advantage of this situation by using low F.A.W. (Fiber Areal Weight) and high-modulus carbon fiber, which creates urgency for the fibers to return to their natural position for maximum recoil.

Intelligent Weave

Static Zone:

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.

Uniform Release

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 enginnered 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 Final Word:

Attack/Midfield

It’s an elite shaft for the highest-level athletes. It offers an impressive combination of technologies, like Intelligence Weave and HD Resin, with numerous Flex iQ options that work together to maximize your performance in the midfield and on offense.
