MAKE YOUR CHOICE, FLEX AT EVERY LEVEL
Epoch’s Flex iQ allows athletes with different playing styles to elevate their game. Keeping to tradition, Dragonfly Nine will feature their flagship Flex iQ’s but will also introduce two new flexes. One of Dragonfly Nine’s newest flex iQ’s will be iQ2 for all Attack and Midfield C, E, and X geometries. The iQ2 is our stiffest flex option and is designed for those step-down shooters who benefit from a stiffer shaft to help transfer their own energy through the entire stick when passing and shooting. With close defenders in mind, Epoch also added an iQ3 to the Defense 60” line up. Designed for close defenders who throw precision checks and getting the ball up the field as quickly as possible. Flex engineered for every player at every level of the game.
HD RESIN: INCREASED PERFORMANCE
Our engineers have been working with our US based material suppliers for over 2 years on the latest resin technology specifically for our Dragonfly family of shafts. The main target was to optimize mechanical strength properties especially in impact resistance. To
accomplish this, Epoch worked with their engineers to make sure the new resin system showed improvement and also worked within our 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.
DRAGONFLY NINE DEFENSE/LSM
The Dragonfly Nine Defense/LSM shaft is engineered specifically for those defending their team on the field. Dragonfly Nine features Epoch’s new HD Resin system in all of Epoch’s 60” geometries for increased performance. Each one of the geometries has a Flex iQ engineered by Epoch to elevate a certain style of play. Epoch looks at all aspects of defense and design a shafts for a specific defenseman. See below and choose the Flex iQ that fits your game.
iQ3 - New for 2019, the iQ3 Flex is designed for a reason, for close defenders who defend hard, throw precision checks and look to get the ball up the field as quickly as possible. Engineered to be stiffer for when you are in close around the goal and also when you need to throw a quick outlet pass from deep in the corner to get the ball up field.
iQ8 - Specifically designed to be used by the aggressive LSM or offensive minded defender. This Dragonfly shaft is strong enough to defend the goal, and engineered to bring the ball across midfield for players looking for the assist or shot on goal. The iQ8 is a softer flex giving you more flex when shooting which will translate to more power for the 60” Dragonfly.
iQ5 C60xl - Engineered for the close defenders who play outstanding defense but need extra mass for checks and using their shaft to drive the opposing team away from the net.
