Mitsubishi MMT Taper 125 vs Recoil Proto 125


Recommended Posts

Based on feedback I have read about these 2 shafts they seem like the best heavier weight graphite options that have a low/mid trajectory and spin but I haven’t seen any direct comparisons.

 

Has anyone tried both and can offer some thoughts. Happy to hear about Steelfiber 125 as well but prefer the Recoil proto and MMT.

I demoed the 105 TX MMT and thought it was very stable.  Similar, at least for me, to a PX 6.0.  Similar weight at about 113-114g cut weight in the 7 iron demo I built.  Would play it in a heartbeat i

I like mmt 125tx for feel and performance much better than steelfiber in 125x. Steelfiber 110x felt nice for me but was too light.

I am waiting on getting my 125 STIFF MMT's back from my builder, I will report back to you. These are NOT the TX bu the STIFF flex...

I’ve played them all my favorites are the steelfiber 125 and mmt 125. I think they have very similar characteristics but the mmt is maybe plays at a slightly higher swing weight.  I played the steelfibers for years but I switched over to the mmts and really like them and I’m not going back to steelfiber. I liked the recoils too but felt the steelfibers had more feel.

I demoed the 105 TX MMT and thought it was very stable.  Similar, at least for me, to a PX 6.0.  Similar weight at about 113-114g cut weight in the 7 iron demo I built.  Would play it in a heartbeat if my elbow pain flares back up.  It felt more stable than the SF 110 I had played before.  Never was a fan of the Recoil.

 

The MMT 105 stiff is 105g.  The MMT 105 TX is 114g.  Why don't they just call it the MMT 115??  

 

Don't overlook the Mitsubishi OTI tour iron.  I demoed it alongside the MMT and both were solid.

I have the recoil proto 125 F5 in my Vegas.  Fell in love with them and this was maybe 9 years ago.  I have had past hand and wrist injuries so I decided no more steel shafts for me.  The recoils do a good job at reducing harsh vibration.  They also aren't boardy which I found pleasantly surprising.  Distance is consistent as well.  I have not yet tested the MMT 125 TX yet, but am eagerly waiting to, my guy just has to get a demo set for me to try.  My plan is to also try the LA GOLF Texas Rebar shafts that BAD is using.

I am currently playing the MMT 125tx that have been soft stepped 1x.  out of the 3 shafts mentioned the MMT have the best feel.  SF and Recoils have a harder more harsh feel.  the MMT shaft you can feel it kick in your swing.

What did you do for your wedges? 8-iron shaft or something else?

They make a wedge specific shaft in 105 and 125.  I got the 125s and they feel similar to my irons.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
