The Dragonfly Select Attack/Mid is the ideal shaft for offensive-minded players who wants versatility on the field. Engineered with Epoch’s core technologies and also one of the lightest shafts on the market, it offers the benefits of the Dragonfly Pro and Elite at a remarkably affordable value.
Epoch’s carbon fiber composite with Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.) that allows engineers to control several aspects of the shaft’s performance like flex, durability, weight, and release point. HD Resin enhances the mechanical strength of the shaft to give you improved durability while also adding direct benefits to the other tech, like Flex iQ, in the shaft.
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.) Select is what separates Epoch shafts from conventional composite shafts. By layering 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.
