E-Core is the revolutionary manufacturing process that is at the heart of the Dragonfly Elite III lacrosse shaft. The New E-Core enhances the core structure of the shaft, making it stronger and more durable than ever before. This results in improved overall performance and an unparalleled level of consistency, giving players the power and control they need to dominate on the field. E-Core is the ultimate solution for lacrosse players who demand nothing but the best, and with the Dragonfly Elite III, it has truly set a new standard for performance and innovation in the lacrosse industry.

Reactive Tech™. The proprietary technology and innovation is engineered with a handcrafted Progressive Weave to increase maximize energy transfer and overall reactiveness for unmatched performance and feel. The Progressive Weave changes in size from wider, lower Reactive construction, at the bottom to tighter, more reactive construction towards the head to optimize player performance. In short, Reactive Tech™ gives players increased performance and feel by progressively increasing the responsiveness along the shaft.

Epoch’s New Dual Micro Grip gives you a smooth matte feel while passing, shooting, and dodging. Grab our lightest Elite shaft ever made and experience innovation yourself.

DEFENSE/LSM FLEX IQ CHART

FLEX IQ

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.

Flex Profiles

Power – Flex iQ2xl

You’re a close defender who needs extra mass for checks and driving the opponent away from the net.

Speed – Flex iQ8

You consider yourself an aggressive LSM or offensive-minded defender who’s looking for more out of his gear. You need a shaft that is strong enough to defend the goal with a soft enough flex to bring the ball through transition as you look for the assist or shot on goal

HD Resin

HD Resin optimizes the mechanical strength properties especially in impact resistance. Epoch worked with their engineers to make sure the new resin system showed improvement and also worked within their proprietary manufacturing process to produce even better shafts with improved durability. HD Resin improves the overall shaft but also adds direct benefits to each of Epoch’s Technologies, giving you, the player, a better shaft and increased performance for your game

S.V.T.

Surface Veil Technology(S.V.T.) gives another layer of added protection and is a layer of very thin fabric that is used in the military and aerospace manufacturing, wrapped on the outside of the carbon. When the SVT goes through the manufacturing process, it is heated to become part of the carbon fiber layup, which boosts toughness on the field

Made in America

The Epoch Dragonfly is Made in America with Pride. With access to the world’s best engineers, raw materials and the latest manufacturing processes. Epoch continues to lead the development of technology in the lacrosse by designing, engineering, manufacturing in-house.

A.C.L. Elite

Our Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.) Elite is engineered for the best of the best. A.C.L. Elite uses advanced materials and layers 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.

Lower F.A.W.

The Dragonfly Pro utilizes unidirectional carbon fiber prepreg with a lower Fiber Areal Weight (F.A.W. ) than conventional shafts. These smaller, lighter fibers allow for a tighter orientation of the carbon fiber. More fibers equals increased durability.

Torque Box Elite

Torque Box Elite technology is designed to maintain the continuity of the shaft’s geometry and maximize energy transfer to the head during a pass or shot. As a conventional composite shaft flexes, the natural geometry of the shaft can be compromised initiating ovalization of the shaft, resulting in the loss of energy. Torque Box Elite technology improves and optimizes the transfer of energy in the shaft, maximizing performance and playability.

Reload Technology

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.
