Dragonfly Integra 2 Attack/Midfield
The Dragonfly Integra 2 is designed for the advancing player looking to upgrade from an alloy to carbon fiber shaft. Hand crafted for the most dynamic player, Integra 2 features the same technology you expect from the Dragonfly name. Proven at the highest level of the game, the Dragonfly Integra 2 shaft holds a proud spot within our Integra collection of equipment. The Integra 2 comes in your favorite geometry, C30, and flex options iQ5 and iQ9. Epoch’s standard concave shaft offers a familiar feel for players looking to add some new technology to their game. Proudly made in the USA

We strive to design and produce the highest quality equipment using the best raw materials, with an overall seamless manufacturing process. This means bringing our designs and technology back to the states giving us unparalleled quality control. The original Integra Shaft was our first shaft ever produced here in the states, and we are continuing that tradition with the introduction of the Dragonfly Integra 2 handle.
Featured Epoch Technology
Torque Box 2
Intelligent Weave™ allows for a more uniform construction as the carbon filaments in each tow (row) are spread out creating a thinner and more closed woven fabric providing reduced weight, optimal mechanicals and minimal voids in the composite layup. By reducing “Crimp” (when carbon fiber runs in a uniform direction(s) that is not structurally beneficial) we can decrease weight by reducing non-essential material while maintaining the structural integrity required by lacrosse.
The Dragonfly Eight Dragonfly utilizes unidirectional carbon fiber prepreg with a lower F.A.W. (Fiber Areal Weight) than conventional shafts. These smaller, lighter fibers allow for a tighter orientation of the carbon fiber. More fibers equals increased durability.
Highly engineered “gritty” textured topcoat, which allows for consistent grip to be maintained in all weather, while also allowing the shaft to move freely through your hands
“Kick” Up Your Game.
The Dragonfly’s Uniform Release point is designed to maximize shaft performance by creating a natural kick-point or flex point just above your top hand, when shooting and passing.
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.
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
The carbon fiber pre-preg used in Epoch shafts undergoes a chemical surface treatment process to improve the mechanical “locking” (compatibility) between the fibers and the matrix resin. The result is better laminate properties of the carbon fiber. An improved laminate results in better load transfer (energy) for increased durability.
Our Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.) is what separates Epoch shafts from conventional composite shafts. By layering 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.
