From Press Release
Players looking for an affordable carbon fiber lacrosse shaft have a new choice, Epoch’s Dragonfly Integra (30” – MSRP $100 and 60” – MSRP $160). The Dragonfly Integra will compliment the Dragonfly Gen.6 shaft launched last fall. Epoch’s latest offering is the first product to be manufactured in the company’s state-of-the-art 10,000 square foot R&D and manufacturing facility.
The Dragonfly Integra was engineered for players looking to make the jump from an alloy to a carbon fiber shaft without the usual expense associated with carbon technology. The Dragonfly Integra shaft features Epoch’s familiar concave geometry and will be available in both A/M and D-pole. The 30” is available in a mid-flex INT-C30iQ5 or soft-flex INT-C30iQ9 flex and 60” C60iQ8 in an improved geometry vs previous Dragonfly shafts. The Dragonfly Integra shafts are the perfect balance of lightweight and durability and are backed by Epoch’s industry leading 1-year warranty.
Utilizing Epoch’s Uniform Release, Epoch insures the Dragonfly Integra will flex uniformly across the length of the shaft when shooting or passing regardless of hand placement.
“The use of high tech composite materials, like carbon fiber, no longer have to be associated with high prices,” said James Miceli, Principal at Epoch Lacrosse. “With access to the world’s best engineers, raw materials and the latest manufacturing processes, we will continue to lead the development of technology in the lacrosse world for generations.”
The Dragonfly Integra has a clean industrial slate gray look with subtle black graphic treatments paying homage to the Dragonfly legacy of shafts and calling attention to the new “Integra” line.
“We take great pride in designing, developing and manufacturing our products here in America,” added Miceli. “The Dragonfly Integra shaft is just the first product in the next generation of performance driven lacrosse gear we will unleash in 2016.”
