The Legend C3001 has a higher concentration of Magnesium and Zinc versus the 7075 molecular makeup.
Perfect for the middie who believes on playing both sides of the ball, this 7001 series alloy provides a best-in-class strength to weight ratio with proven balance.
The C3001 is 30” and 185g of pure strength and comes standard with Epoch’s Slip/Grip finish.
"Epoch’s engineers have studied the intricacies of the game and
understand the delicate relationship between strength and weight vs.
durability and performance. Additionally, they discovered that microchanges
in a shaft's design can have a large impact on its performance.
It is with this vast knowledge that the Legend Series was created.
A unique feature setting Epoch's alloy series apart from other alloy
shafts is their state of the art manufacturing techniques. The Tube
Drawing technique is used to ensure structural integrity remains
consistent throughout the entire length of the shaft. The aluminum
starts as a large tube (versus a block) and is drawn (versus pushed)
through a dye. This process is repeated several times, with the tube
diameter getting smaller and smaller each time, until it is shaped into
the desired cross-section. It is only with this precision that Epoch is able
to achieve their desired wall thickness, weight, and surface finish. The
highly engineered cross-section and wall-thickness provides resistance
to dents and dings while still allowing the shaft to maintain its intended
“feel” and world-class strength to weight ratio. This attention to detail
sets their world-class designs apart from the competition.
Just as with the Dragonfly series, the alloy shafts utilize true aerospace
grade materials with unmatched quality and purity. Epoch secures their
raw materials from known and trusted suppliers and is able to validate
the chemical properties of every shaft that leaves their facility. In
addition, their Optimal Feel Technology ensures the shafts just “feel”
Each design undergoes countless tests during development to ensure
the design will stand up to the test of time. In additional to tireless field
testing, these lab tests include the three point bend test providing a
stiffness profile and the drop test which determines how resistant the
shaft will be to denting. Also measured, is the tensile strength and
hardness factor (utilizing the Rockwell scale)."
