The Dragonfly Pro Attack/Mid is the model shaft for high-performing athletes. Offered in 2 distinct Flex iQ’s and multiple geometries and boasting more of Epoch’s proprietary technologies, it makes for one unforgettable shaft.
The HD Resin and Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.) of the Dragonfly Pro as well as Surface Veil Technology (S.V.T) and Reload Technology for durability and performance. S.V.T. increases the overall “toughness” of the shaft by acting as an additional layer of protection to prevent microfractures. Reload Technology takes advantage of flexing carbon fibers by using a low Fiber Areal Weight (F.A.W.) to create urgency for the fibers to return to their natural position, ensuring maximum recoil and velocity.
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.
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.
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 S.V.T. goes through the manufacturing process, it is heated to become part of the carbon fiber layup, which boosts toughness on the field.
The Dragonfly Select 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..
Our Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.) Pro 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.
The Dragonfly Select 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.
Torque Box Pro -
Torque Box Pro 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 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.
