** OFFICIAL REVIEW: MITSUBISHI MMT Iron Shafts ***** FINAL REVIEW Post #2 is UP
Mitsubishi MMT shafts (125TX)
First, I want to thank Mitsubishi and GolfWRX for putting this opportunity together. I had a discussion with WRX about the new MMT shafts and how I’m really looking hard at switching to graphite due to bouts with tennis and golfers elbow. The wear-and-tear from years of sports catches up with all of us and I'm at the point where I’m ready to make the switch IF it makes sense from a performance standpoint. I play a lot of competitive amateur golf (at least I did before the elbow issues) so I will only switch if I feel it's the same if not better than what i'm currently using. That goes for my entire bag. If I find these aren't what I'm looking for I will most likely go the insert route. As I said I sincerely appreciate Mitsubishi providing shafts for the test but I won't sacrifice my scoring ability just to write a positive review.
A little about myself
HCP : I range from +1.9 to 0 this year
Driver SS : 115’ish on course.
6 iron SS: 93-94mph
Swing Type : Think Tony Finau or John Rahm in terms of swing length and aggressive transition.
REVIEW Questions that I want to answer:
1. Can the Mitsubishi MMT’s truly replace heavier steel shafts, particularly my Modus 120TX's
2. Will these shafts take the stress off my joints, particularly my elbows and wrists.
With that said these arrived late last week and I'm just getting around to building some of the irons up. I will be adding info and more pics as I practice and get rounds in. For this review I have 2 identical sets of irons. This will be APPLES TO APPLES. I will be focusing on a long iron (#4), a mid iron (#7), and a short iron (#9). I will also be adding wedges later in the test.
