Dragonfly Gen. 6:

To develop the Gen.6 Dragonfly, Epoch pushed their engineers harder than ever before. The jump from Gen.5 to Gen.6 is the greatest increase in shaft technology Epoch has ever released. With the introduction of the Torque Box, Epoch has once again reinvented the lacrosse shaft.





Torque Box:

By understanding the dynamics and forces present in lacrosse, Epoch developed Torque Box technology to maintain the continuity of the shaft's geometry and maximize energy transfer to the head during a pass or shot. As a lacrosse shaft moves during the act of shooting, the force generated puts stress on the fibers causing the shaft to flex. 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. Epoch's exclusive Torque Box Technology works by making specific changes to critical carbon fiber layers to minimize this phenomenon. 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.





Advanced Carbon Layering:

The key to Epoch technology is its Advanced Carbon Layering (A.C.L.). With Gen.6 Epoch improves the A.C.L vs. previous generations by varying the lengths of the carbon fiber flags (raw material). By focusing the strength through the center of the shaft, weight can be reduced near the ends.





"Kick"Your Game Up:

Epoch's Uniform Release point is designed to maximize shaft performance by creating a natural kick-point or flex point just above your top hand, when shooting and passing.

Epoch Dragonfly E30 iQ9

by From VISTA, CA
This shaft is super light, very strong and the shape is amazing! I also love the flex of the iQ9, especially for inside shots playing box. It feels very similar to my Gen 5 (which is also a great shaft) and I really like the new graphics. I highly recommend this shaft for players who are ready to invest in a top of the line model. Please see my "cons" in order to understand why this shaft gets 4 stars instead of 5.
Pros:
The weight
The strength
The flex
The graphics
The texture
Cons:
The set screw hole did not line up with my Maverik Optik head, so I had to fill the pre-drilled hole in the shaft with epoxy and then re-drill it. Otherwise, the holes would have been too close together to get a solid attachment point. I am not sure if there is a standard for the hole location on heads and shafts, but there should be. Otherwise, I would prefer this to come without a pre-drilled hole. Also, because of the shape of this shaft, it fits pretty loosely with most heads. You really need to wrap a piece of tape around the shaft underneath the head in order to prevent it from wobbling. These are minor issues, but could use improvement to make this the best shaft on the market.
