Epoch Lacrosse, with South Swell Sports, has designed a revolutionary shaft engineered specifically for goalies. Utilizing Epoch’s already well-known Dragonfly R40 as their base, Epoch worked in collaboration with South Swell in the facilitation of their designs and ideas to create the Special Edition 6×6 goalie shaft.

The Dragonfly R40 is a technological achievement for lacrosse shafts. The Relaxed Concave shape is designed to keep a goalie’s hands loose and fast and the 3 Zone Grip places needed grip in key strategic areas. With the Special Edition 6×6, Epoch and South Swell took the goalie shaft a step further and matched the color of the shaft to the goal. James Miceli, Principal of Epoch Lacrosse, explains, “Together, we matched the Pantone color of the most common lacrosse goals to provide goalies with a visual and psychological advantage over shooters. We believe we are the first to use a shaft’s cosmetics as a performance benefit.”

Adam Ghitelman, goalie for the Charlotte Hounds and a 6×6 tester, adds “”This is probably not only the flyest looking handle out there, but it is incredibly light as well. The shooters I was with, definitely agreed with the psychological impact of the coloring of the shaft. Lightweight, durable and a very clean looking design make this the best handle I have had the pleasure of using.”

As with all Epoch shafts, the 6×6 comes with a one year warranty against all manufacturer defects. South Swell Sports will be the exclusive launch retailer of the 6×6 goalie shaft.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
