Epoch Prequel Lacrosse Head Review
The new Epoch Hawk Prequel is the Third release in the Hawk lineup from Epoch Lacrosse. The big story here is that Epoch has claimed to marry the ultimate in deep mid-placed pockets with one of the quickest releases in the game. How did they do that ??
First, Epoch states that this head has the “most-offset” feel in the game. This creates the ultimate in ball control and feel. Secondly, Epoch states that the Prequel is “mathematically better than conventional lacrosse heads” because it is engineered to have the deepest pocket possibly allowed by NCAA rules. “Lacrosse is a game of inches, but we worry about millimeters,” states James Miceli, the principal and founder of Epoch Lacrosse.
The Biggest difference we see here is Epoch’s move away from sweeping profile of the Hawk Sequel. The Sequel sweeps back from the off-set, whereas the Prequel curves more like a traditional head. This curve will add pocket depth and control for sure, but the off-set will register that quick release that elite level players demand. In addition, the Prequel has a FlexiQ 3 rating which is a bit stiffer than their previous heads, and can be married up with their advanced line of Epoch Lacrosse Shafts. IQ 9 level shafts are designed for player shooting under 80 mph and the IQ 5 for player shooting at a high school and collegiate level.
The Hawk Prequel is a universal spec head and is coming in at a starting price point of $100. The Prequel will begin shipping on July 15, 2016.
