** OFFICIAL REVIEW: MITSUBISHI MMT Iron Shafts ***** FINAL REVIEW Post #2 is UP


Recommended Posts

BEING REVIEWED:

**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.

**Final review**   ** Mitsubishi MMT shafts (125TX)** Refresher: 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

I ordered pxg 0211’s with the mmt (stiff 84g) since they were discounted hero’s deal. I already have a set with steelfiber i95’s. Will compare and report.

Had these built by SUMM1T on here...clubs are amazing. Wanted these shafts and this thread got me to try the heads out, felt better than anything else I tried and I think I hit like 10-12 different he

A friend of mine has been playing Recoils off and on since they came out. He speaks very highly of them, especially how the graphite took the vibration out of the misses. I'm really really looking forward to that aspect of the MMT's. I also know a few players who use SteelFibers so I have a decent amount of experience with those as well. Overall I've found that liked some of the current offerings but never enough to actually consider making the switch. Interesting to see if the MMT's do the trick.

I have been using steelfiber 125x for about 3 years now. I will be watching. Thanks for doing a review.

Looking forward to this review. I just switch to composite iron shafts. They are a few years old and I do not think they are even made anymore. Aldila rip SLT tour 115 shafts. So far, I think I am a convert to graphite. I am interested in a few newer options, including these, the fuji MCI shafts, and a couple others.

 

Composite irons shafts is the future. Just pricey.

I had the same concern as I'm a logo down guy but Mitsubishi did a great job in the graphics department. They look high end but subtle with one side being predominantly black with 2 light silver rings. I'm doing some more pics today so you will see first hand what i'm talking about.

 

 

 

As for everyone else : I'm glad to share the experience. I know a lot of people are in a similar position with joints but also don't want to sacrifice performance, ESPECIALLY with a heavier weighted iron shaft.

Looking forward to reading this

 

As a massive Mitsu fan (I have a motherload of OG white and blueboards in all the weights) I am excited to see this line up and will want to test one for sure.

 

(The KK 1050 TiNi felt great in the new 620mb's)

 

Also a semi-low capper (0.9 to 3.3 this year) with horrific elbow and hand and wrist pain. Being almost 52 hurts !!!!

 

Have tried many graphite iron shaft sets ... Aldila 125 protos, NV105x, Aldila by you 85x, steelfiber 110, fujikura MCI's in both 100 and 120g, and recoils in 95

I'm with ya brother. The aches and pains have really taken a toll on me this year. In fact my right elbow tendon is partially torn so surgery is most likely the only option. I can still play thanks to the Bandit brace but I can't wait to get this healed up over the winter. After that it's all about prevention.

I haven't tried TGI stuff and to be honest I don't have as much interest due to the fact that they don't have experience with graphite. Graphite iron shafts are tricky enough so I feel more confident in companies like Mitsu, UST, Project X who have been working with graphite for a while. The MMT's were the first graphite shafts I was really eager to try as I like the fact that Mitsubishi controls the process from start to finish. I figured (right or wrong) if someone was going to figure out the winning formula it would be them. With that said Recoils are good just lacking in the feel section for me at 125g.

 

I have tried 110g offerings from other companies but the overall weight always gets me. I'm a bigger guy so I like having a little heft in my clubs so i don't lose them during my swing.

haha did you read why it's like that? It's on purpose

I saw it now after I re-read your post haha. Where can I read up on it more? I was getting ready to order a set and then saw your post so I'm waiting for review now :wink:
