MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epoch Lacrosse, a U.S. design and technology company that specializes in lacrosse, announces the release of its brand-new, limited-edition Dragonfly Eight Gold shaft. The Dragonfly Eight Gold incorporates the same advanced technology seen in the original Dragonfly Eight, including Surface Veil Technology (SVT), which is proven to maintain structural integrity of the shaft.

SVT gives the Dragonfly Eight Gold another layer of added protection through a layer of very thin fabric that is also used in military and aerospace manufacturing, wrapped on the outside of the carbon. When the SVT goes through the manufacturing process, it is heated to become part of the carbon fiber layup, which boosts toughness on the field.

“The Epoch team is thrilled to debut its latest shaft, the Dragonfly Eight in its signature gold color, and can’t wait to hear feedback from players and lacrosse fans alike,” said James Miceli, principal at Epoch Lacrosse. “Our Dragonfly line showcases some of the best technology in the industry that our team has been able to incorporate throughout our brand.”

The limited-edition Dragonfly Eight Gold is available in different designs, custom to the player, including the C30 and C60. The shaft is 100-percent made and designed in the U.S. and is now available for purchase at authorized Epoch retailers. The Dragonfly Eight Gold is $140 MSRP for the C30 and $200 MSRP for the 60-inch.

In addition to SVT, other technologies are woven into the dynamics of the shaft, including intelligent weave, torque box technology and carbon layering. Epoch’s proprietary 12K Intelligent Weave Technology is designed to stabilize the hands and push energy towards the head of the stick when passing or shooting, while torque box technology maintains the continuity of the shaft’s geometry and maximizes energy transfer to the head during a pass or shot.
