Epoch picked the brains of its partners The Face-Off Factory and their staff of elite coaches to identify their wish list for a shaft. Epoch took its research to the next level by utilizing high-speed movie cameras to study the ergonomics and connection between a player’s hands in relation to the shaft to find the ideal balance between comfort, performance and durability. No expense was spared in designing the shaft. The 2015 Dragonfly Gen.5 F30 uses hi-grade carbon fiber materials and production techniques that are usually reserved for military grade products.

“It is really nice to see a company who actually listens to the people who use their products and goes out of their way to deliver a product that exceeds our expectations,” said Bryan Burkhart, founder of the Face-Off Factory. “We put this shaft into the hands of hundreds of youth, high school and Division I players this past summer and heard nothing but rave reviews.”

The game-changing F30 shaft with its MOTOGrip is designed to maximize clamping power and torque at the draw. The green color provides a contrasting color to a players gloves and head. The concave shaft on the lower half of the shaft provides a standard shape for comfortable passing and shooting after you win the draw and drive to the cage.
