MMT driver shafts: Anyone tried it?

Have the MMT 60S in my Cally Max LS. Solid feel, mid to mid-low trajectory and very stable. I was interested in the "blueboard feel" primarily as that is my favorite shaft of all time. I have to get a few more rounds to comment on my total review of it, but I like the smooth feel of it, the stability of the shaft through impact. I feel like it was more stable than the kuro kage (felt like there was more of an active "kick" on the KK, that I didn't like). Through impact, I feel like I have great control and awareness of the clubface.

I went through a fitting today with several shafts/heads, and the MMT 70X in an Epic Max LS won out. For direct comparison, it dropped launch by about 2 degrees when compared to the Project X im10 in the same head. Additionally, I noticed spin was down by probably about 500-600 rpm when comparing those two shafts, and the MMT felt more stable. The end result was a much better ball flight with a consistent 15 yard improvement in carry and more rollout. One of the other competitors was a TSi3 with a Tensei AV Raw white. I liked the feel of that shaft, but that combo only launched about 10 degrees, which usually isn’t ideal on the course.

I have been playing the MMT 70X tipped an inch for since the season started waiting for my Ventus to get here.  I thought it felt fairly robust for a stock shaft.  Pretty smooth.  But, I felt like I had a tendency to push it just a touch.  Like the face was just a hair too far behind.  Now that I have a round with the Ventus in my setup, that miss was completely gone.  While the MMT is a decent shaft, I am glad my time with it is over.  I thought tipping it an inch would tighten it up enough.  But, it just wasn't quite there.  But, it wasn't too far off.  Maybe taking off another half inch and playing it a little shorter would have had some better results.

What ventus specs did you go with?

Ventus Blue 6X tipped an inch.  I had the 7X last year and wanted to try something a little lighter.

I just tested an MMT 60tx (70g) against my ventus 7x black. I've also hit the MMT 70x and will touch on that also.

 

I'm a 0 cap heavy loader from the top 120ss  currently play ventus 7x

 

First off, the 70mmt X from cally in my epic LS was a little soft for me. Great shaft for up to 115 if smooth but untipped it felt a little loose for me. 

 

Ventus 7x is the straightest shaft I've yet tested. Mic drop straight, never question if it dates chick's straight and strong. 

The only thing I've found is it flies a tad lower than I want. 

 

Enter the mmt 60tx, very tight with a firm handle which is a must for me. What I like about it is the overall profile is much stiffer than the 70x and the flight was almost 20 ft higher peak than the ventus 7x black.

 

Spin with the ventus was 2180 and 2330 with the 60tx mmt. Not as much roll but I like my yards in the air. 11 more carry yards with MMT and it kept up with heavy swings as well. Not as straight as ventus but definitely NOT wild at all.  This is a must try shaft for faster guys looking for a tight shaft with a little mid flight air time😉

i own the MMT 60s in my Rogue driver. I tested on the course against Kyoshi tour blue 60-04, Ventus Black 60s and Ventus Blue 60s. I swing 105 and prefer mid launch and low spin and this shaft won out.

Have had it in the bag all summer and sold all the other shafts. For me the trajectory is perfect and it feels great. good luck

Thanks for sharing this comp - it is literally the exact scenario I was looking for. Tipped the crap out of a MMT 70x while I waiting for my other shaft to arrive, and absolutely bombed it - just a TOUCH loose. But the profile felt great in my hands, I was shocked how well it held up. I swing 122-124 but the Ventus black feels like s*** to me and is a touch low

 

The MMT 60tx can be had on eBay for like $115 at this point, seems like a great value for a TX flex shaft. I'm going to order one up. 2300rpm and a mid/flat trajectory is exactly where I want to be

Has anyone that's tried the MMT ever gamed or even hit a steel shafted driver? If so, how does it compare?

Honestly, no modern graphite shaft is going to be in the same ballpark as any steel shaft in a driver. The weight difference is just too much. I dont know what the lightest steel shaft available is for a driver length, but its gotta be 100g or very close. It will more than likely feel like swinging a battle axe

It does and that's why I ask. I was one of the first to replace my X100 with the MMT 125TX and it was a seamless transition. There have been several threads over the years about folks wanting to put a steel shaft in a driver/fairway. Just wondering if the new MMT shaft we're discussing here is a viable alternative for those searching for steel without the weight.

What steel are you comparing/have? 

Steel isn't as stiff as many graphite shafts and you likely need a heavy graphite that fits your profile. MMT 80x could be ideal shift from steel played at 44.5. That profile is similar to steel but tighter. The lighter 70 and 60 in x and tx are to big a jump from steel imo. Good luck
