Since this Q&A ended up being scheduled during the downtime, are there plans to reschedule it for a later time?

It already happened.         I don't want to seem like a negative nancy -  but "Johnny Wunder" pretty much ignored all of the questions people asked on here.   He talked over their engineer,   and

I asked Srixon/Cleveland if I could order the MMT’s in a set and this is the response I got from them. Unfortunately this shafts only come in parallel tip .370. We use taper tip .355 shafts in all of

What was Abraham Ancer's role in developing these? He's a big supporter. Would love to understand thought process into the design!

does graphite benefit the harder swinger as much or more than someone who swings slower?

What other weights and flexes are coming?

How long did it take to bring this from an idea to a produced shaft for testing?

Are these all low/low shafts?

Thanks

Are there manufacturing benefits to graphite over steel with regard to being able to manufacture to specific targeted specs (ie - could you hit a wider range of torque, kick point, tip or butt stiffness targets all within the same weight of graphite that you couldn't hit with steel)?

I play the parallel 80 Stiff and like them so far. In general can you explain the correlation between weights and flex? ie what would I notice going to a heavier weight but softer flex? I feel like a lot of players interested in the MMT have similar questions related to the stiffer flexes but in light weights vs heavier weights and softer flexes.

I have a set of mmt105 tx waiting to be built but I am unsure of the flex. Can I handle the tx if I can handle most steel versions in x. Is there anyway I can soften the flex as they are a 0.5” longer?

In the recent past I have used graphite shafts in my irons for several years. I really loved their performance on the longer irons, but struggled with the short irons where one needed the ability to vary the distance that the ball goes. My conclusion was that the lighter weight shaft performed well on longer irons where one is more often making a full swing, but on the short irons where one frequently tries to hit half and three quarter shots, the lighter weight shafts made it more difficult to pull off. Therefore, my question is: When getting fitted for these shafts, would you recommend a standard weight shaft on the long irons and a heavier weight shaft on the short irons?

First off I'm excited to see another high quality graphite offering in the .355T constant weight classification. Thanks for that.

Here on GolfWRX the overwhelming favorite graphite iron shafts are the taper tip Recoil and Steelfibers. How do the MMT's compare with those?

And for us guys that like to build for ourselves, what's the balance point like? Is it low enough to allow swingweighing in the low D's without adding weight?

We keep hearing the advancements in graphite irons shafts, but you don't see an increase in use from pros (PGA or Champions Tour) and high level amateurs. Are the results (spin, feel, consistency,etc.) equal to steel? Why do you think players are still reluctant to change?

Can you compare how this plays to the most stout steel shafts? X7, project x 7.0 and c taper 130x. Is dispersion as good?

I “think” I would like to make the switch to graphite irons. I am currently gaming Modus 105s in Stiff flex. My swing speed is declining. I would love to know if there is a benefit such as maintaining distance vs steel in addition to the vibration dampening? Which model should I be looking at if I have an 85-90mph driver swing speed?

 

Thank you!

Can you talk about soft stepping the 125 TX? I've considered picking up a set as my Project X 6.0 seem a bit tough on the joints. I hit my 32 degree 7 iron 175.

Can you also talk about the 120 S version that will be released later this quarter? How will the profile be different?

What attributes does the metal mesh contribute that you couldn't get with graphite alone?

Thank you so much for doing this!!! I've wanted a set of these since I first read about them and can't wait to learn more!
