Epoch has been constantly looking for ways to put the most advanced technology into each of their products. Epoch takes the time to make sure every improvement they make, every new technology the adopt, delivers real benefits for players in game situations. This means that any innovation that goes into one of their products goes in for a specific purpose and plays a specific role. Whether it is taking extra protection from checks or added power when taking that outside rip, Epoch’s shafts are made for you, the player.

 

This kind of thinking powers Epoch’s new Dragonfly 8 shaft, which features some of the most advanced technology to date. Proudly made in the USA and backed with their industry-best 1 year warranty, the Dragonfly 8 sets a new standard for lacrosse shafts. The shaft incorporates Epoch’s 12K Intelligent Weave Technology, something that they introduced with the Dragonfly 7 line. The 12K Intelligent Weave uses carbon fiber in specific orientations, at different areas of the shaft to both stabilize the player’s hands and to push energy up towards the head of the stick for shooting and passing. With more energy being pushed up towards the head of your stick, the Dragonfly Eight maximizes a player’s shot potential.

 

The Dragonfly Eight also features Epoch’s Torque Box 2, which works to maintain the structural integrity and reduces ovalilzation of the shaft as it flexes. This maximizes transfer of energy during a pass or shot, and encourages the shaft to return to its original shape more quickly after flexing so you are ready for the next play. A new feature of Dragonfly Eight is Surface Veil Technology, Epoch’s next step forward in shaft durability. Surface Veil Technology is an added layer of protection that helps prevent micro fractures on the top layer of the shaft. This increases the shafts “toughness,” as it increases durability during slashes and cross checks. As always, the Dragonfly 8 comes in different geometries, flex profiles, and lengths to meet the preference of any player, providing options for you to dial in your game.

These advancements are designed by Epoch’s engineers, all of which played lacrosse and understand the game on a player level. Epoch knows the benefits to these advancements because they have been constantly thinking, creating and testing their ideas at their lab and manufacturing facility in the USA. We highly recommend the Dragonfly Eight for all elite players, it’s high performance, lightweight, made in America and comes with a 1-year warranty. Get yours today.
