Epoch Lacrosse Launches Factory Set-Up Sticks

Factory Strung is no longer a dirty word

Roseville, MN — Epoch Lacrosse today announced the launch of its industry leading Factory Set-up, which enables players to choose complete custom sticks based on their playing style.  Players will now be able to build a stick by selecting from a Dragonfly Gen.6 C30 in a mid-flex iQ5 or soft Flex iQ9 or C60 for poles shaft, a Hawk Sequel or Prequel head and finish it off with a custom strung pocket by Mainely Mesh.  Epoch Factory Set-Up sticks will be available exclusively through authorized Epoch retailers and will begin shipping by August.

“The goal of our Factory Set-Up program is pretty straight forward,” said James Miceli, principal and founder of Epoch Lacrosse.  “We wanted to make it easier for players to pick up a stick that will help them perfect their game without having to make any adjustments to their stick.”

Never before have players had the opportunity to choose a factory set-up and have as many options as now.  Each factory set up is designed to fit a unique style of play: yours. It doesn’t matter whether you are an attackman who prefers the quick release of the Sequel or a middie looking for the control of the Prequel, the set-up you choose is designed to maximize your strengths on the field.

Epoch’s Factory Set-Up will feature its popular “C” geometry in both 30 and 60-inch lengths. The C30 will be offered in Epoch’s classic Flex iQ’s of 5 and 9 and the C60 will come in Epoch’s staunch Flex iQ8.  Factory Set-Up sticks with either a Hawk Sequel or Prequel head will exclusively use Otter Mesh so players can keep playing the way they want to and not how the weather dictates.

Epoch’s engineers worked with Chris Burke of Mainly Mesh fame to develop a pocket designed to maximize the sweet spot of the Prequel or Sequel.  They also developed a process that was repeatable  to insure consistency from pocket to pocket.  “We are very excited to offer pockets that are strung in America by real lacrosse players who understand the nuances of the game and tying up a head.”
