The New Epoch Dragonfly Integra 2 Lacrosse Shaft
The all new Epoch Dragonfly Integra 2 lacrosse shafts are designed with much of the same re-load carbon technology as their bigger brothers, the Epoch Dragonfly 8 series, but at about 30% less in price. The biggest difference between the two different lines of these lacrosse shafts is the ability to choose from different shaft shapes. There are there different shaft shapes in the Epoch Dragonfly 8 line, but only one for the Integra 2.
The Epoch Dragonfly Integra 2 lacrosse shaft is really designed to be an upgrade option for those advancing youth and high school players that are considering purchasing a sub-par metal technology in the $75-$100 range. For a few extra bucks, you can now own a shaft that shoots faster, is not susceptible to dents and dings, and performs better than cheaper metal technology.
The Epoch Dragonfly Integra 2 lacrosse shaft weighs in at sub 5oz and has been tested with the bruisers in the NLL, where they but a serious beating on these shafts. We recommend the Epoch Dragonfly Integra 2 lacrosse shaft for that middle school and high school player that is really starting to develop physically. These guys need a shaft that will enhance shot speed as well as have the ability to hold those cross checks from the defensive side of the field.
The Epoch Dragonfly Integra 2 is made in the USA like the Epoch Dragonfly 8 shafts so the quality is second to none. Carbon shaft technology has simply dominated the game in the past few years and many of the bigger manufacturers quickly jumped on the bandwagon and produced shafts that had trouble with snapping and errant shots due to flimsy torque properties. The Epoch Dragonfly Integra 2 line is a high-end carbon option that can take the punishment and shot speeds of bigger players – but won’t break the bank.
There are three specific Integra 2 shafts being released on the success of the original line this year. The “C” stands for their most popular traditional shape – oval with edges not too sharp. The number “30” stands for the length of the shaft – 30” is attack and 60” is defense. The “IQ” number is the flex rating. The lower the number – the stiffer the shaft. For you middle school guys we recommend the softer iQ9, as it will load up and shoot faster for you. For guys shooting over 80 MPH we would like to see you in the stiffer iQ5 series as you will overpower the carbon flex on the softer iQ5.
