Epoch’s Future Design Concepts the Lacrosse World Has Yet to See


Epoch Lacrosse will be at the US Lacrosse Convention in Philadelphia this weekend, hosting an appointment only meeting for dealers and press. Epoch has and continues to push the envelope as a leader in lacrosse technology. With that said, they are excited to showcase their new and innovative future design concepts for this coming year and beyond, including their carbon fiber Dragonfly LX-1 shaft and their alloy Mettle AX-1 shaft.

Dragonfly LX-1

The Dragonfly LX-1 will be the lightest shaft on the market to date. This design concept takes performance and playability to a whole new level. At an extremely light 99g, the LX-1 utilizes top of the line carbon fiber material and Epoch’s proprietary Advanced Carbon Fiber Layering (ACL) technique to create a shaft never before seen or felt in the lacrosse market.

The LX-1 is a design concept that totally surpasses any and all previous attempts of creating a light shaft. Epoch’s engineers share in their passion, and although this particular shaft is still in development and is a few years away from production, Epoch is determined to create the world’s best performing shaft.

Mettle AX-1

Conventional alloys are bound by the direct relationship between durability and weight. By introducing a new “process” during production, Epoch has learned how to evade physics and traditional Metalology. The Mettle AX-1 shaft will be 30″ and will weigh 156 grams (structure weight). Using the top grade materials, this shaft will be anodized and finished using Epoch’s proprietary carbon treatment. The Mettle AX-1 will be available for purchase in 2014.

Along with the new shaft designs, Epoch will also be giving an exclusive sneak peek into their very first head design, due out later this year.
