Am I CRAZY?? MITSUBISHI MMT 105TX from Dynamic gold X7 / X100


Recommended Posts

Could I in fact be nuts? Very possible. I’m going to be ordering some new irons soon and really want to give the MMT shafts a go. I am a self disclosed dynamic gold fan and have essentially played S300, S400, X100 and X7. My current bag is X100 in wedges and X7 from p - 2 iron.

As the title says, I’m considering the 105TX MMT which weigh 113g. The X7s are 20g heavier than these. Why 105TX? Easy!! I’m Canadian and I play in cold weather, plus I’ve got a shoulder issues now. The X7s are totally fine and I really like them, however on colder days I’ve really got to get after them to get desired outcomes. Anyone who knows cold weather golf knows that your equipment, body and ball just don’t perform the same. Am I going to cause issues dropping that much shaft weight going from X7 to MMT 105Tx?

The plan would be the 125TX wedge shafts but I could do an entire set of 125s also.

I look forward to some feedback.

Im also not some freaky monster either. 5ft 10, 186lb w/ a 6 iron SS of 98-100 and driver in the low 120 range. I’ve got a hockey and baseball background so making the transition is just natural for me.

Thanks!!

It will only cause issues if the decrease in static weight messes with your timing and you don't do anything to compensate for it. This will also depend on whether or not you're fighting weight, shaf

No harm in giving them a try.

 

I went from X200 to KBS Tour 90s. I didn't plan on that, they were just in the clubs I got (for a good deal). I figured I would pull the shafts immediately, but decided to try them out. I don't really notice much of a difference. I both irons back to back on the range. Good shots all reacted in a similar fashion. I do think I possible have a looser dispersion, especially if I go after the ball harder - but I'm not nearly consistent enough to say that isn't just me and not the shafts.

This will also depend on whether or not you're fighting weight, shaft bend profile, or both. Best to feel this one out and go by the results as opposed to whether or not something "should" be. Pay close attention to your transition and your release and make adjustments based on whether or not things feel right in those areas. The only reason things like this tend to go badly is that people don't tweak to make it work, so keep some lead tape handy and experiment if they don't agree with you straight out of the box.

Ive been living in Denmark for about 20 years now, and the climate in DK is variable, some withers, the winter dont come at all, like the last one. That means it happens that we can play all year, but sure, temps go lower than summer time, but +6-7 C* (43-45 F) new years day is not unusual. We dont change to "winter clubs", but most of us use a ladies ball when temp fall below 10 C*, thats really all thats needed, and reserves in a warm pocket, so softer and warm golf ball is a must. Clothes can be a hinder, but today there is all sorts of sports underwear that dont limit movement, so i really dont see the need to have a set of clubs for colder climate.

20 grams down in shaft weight is a lot, so listen to Valtiel, be prepared to add some head weight, and maybe a few grams on the shafts too so feel and resistance dont throw you to far off. Get a softer model ball while you are at it, even PRO V1 feels like a rock when temp gets to low, so to get a feel closer to summer, softer and warm golf balls is a must.

I can't find it but MCI commented on how the MMT 125TX was based on the X100. I'm sure you can reach out to them and they will answer your question(s).

 

And finally from personal experience. I switched over to this shaft after playing the X100 since its inception. It was a seamless transition and my numbers and lack of joint soreness reflect this.  🍻
