The Prequel lacrosse head improves upon the traditional curved profile by incorporating our Laid Back Technology creating a new hybrid design. The Zone 3 pocket creates a natural “Sweet Spot” and a perfect mid-pocket for unmatched ball control. Designed for the one-handed dodger looking for a quicker release than most conventional heads available. The Prequel’s design offers one of the deepest pockets in the game, it’s Lie provides a quicker release than any other head in it’s class because we engineered the distance the ball has to travel to be shorter

Performance, Beauty, and Strength.
Sharing many of the aesthetic design elements of the Sequel, the Prequel’s clean lines and attention to detail resulted in a head engineered for today’s top players. In the past, conventional lacrosse heads often made players choose between a deep pocket or a quick release. Epoch’s engineers, however, do not believe that players should be limited by decision. That is why their team created a lacrosse head that shares performance, beauty, and strength.
We are introducing three new points of reference, or measurements, that correlate to specific performance attributes. We have identified that, often, players are looking for a head with a “quick release” enabling them to throw a swift, fast, pass or shot. The other performance element desired by the games top players is a head that is “most-offset”, creating ultimate ball control and feel. We use the center axis of the shaft as a major point of reference when calculating measurements because it is a constant on all brands. More importantly, however, the center axis allows the measurements to be calculated in relationship to a player’s hands.”
We are introducing three new terms to the lacrosse market.
Lie: The distance the scoop “lies” from the center axis of the shaft.
Sweet Spot: The particular position on the bottom rail of a lacrosse head that is the furthest distance from the center axis of the shaft. The Sweet Spot sits at the vertex – the point of the bottom rail that stops curving down from the center axis of the shaft – and begins to curve back up towards the this center point of reference.
Travel: The distance the ball has to move to be released from the head when using the sweet spot as a starting point.
Mid Pocket Design
The Prequel’s curved profile is engineered for that perfect Zone 3 mid pocket and allows for superior ball control and maximum feel and a quicker release than most conventional heads available.
Proudly made in USA
The Prequel hasa Universal Spec and is manufactured with Epoch’s proprietary blend of materials for a super tough polymer with maximized stiffness and flexibility properties with UV protection. The Birds of Prey are manufactured with pride in the USA and comes with a 1-year manufacturer warranty.
The Prequel improves upon the traditional curved profile by incorporating our Laid Back Technology creating a new hybrid design.
Composite Injected Polymer
The Prequel is constructed with state-of-the-art materials by utilizing an industry first and proprietary composite injected polymer, providing not only optimal strength and durability but maximum energy transfer for improved velocity.
