Epoch Hawk Lacrosse Head Review

epoch hawk blog header

In the 90’s, the game of lacrosse introduced a revolutionary technology to the way heads were shaped, labeled as the “Offset”. This game-changing design gave the lacrosse head “more feel” of the ball when shooting, passing and cradling. For years manufacturers have used this “feel” blueprint to attempt to create the most innovative head design within the rules of the game. The overall dynamic of the game evolved solely because of a shift in the positioning of the ball due to head shape. Fast forward to 2014, Epoch, known for their evolutionary composite shaft technology is shocking the lacrosse industry with a head design that stands out from the rest: they call it the Hawk.

The Epoch Hawk lacrosse head was created with optimal feel and ball positioning in mind. At first glance anyone who is more concerned about cosmetic look over performance will be scared away by the design. Unlike its competitors, the Hawk’s design focuses on bottom sidewall rail placement with an offset upper 3rd face shape not just to provide optimal feel and control but also emphasizes accuracy in scooping ground balls and shooting/passing. Equipped with a “Universal Spec” face shape design for all levels of play, this head is not limited to specific positions rather it can be labeled as an all purpose head. The Hawk also delivers a fairly good balance of flex in the points of the head one needs for velocity while also provides adequate stiffness to maximize the overall structure of the head.
