Fujikura MCI Iron Shaft Review – Specs, Flex, Weight
The “MCI” in Fujikura MCI stands for Metal Composite Irons.
This moniker refers to the combination of steel and graphite that was used to build this shaft. This is probably the most unique aspect of this shaft.
Fujikura would have us believe that using both materials gives golfers the best of both worlds. But does the Fujikura MCI really deliver? We tested it to find out.
Fujikura MCI Shaft Overview
Despite the lettering that spans much of the midsection and consists of various fonts, the look of this shaft is elegant.
It has ghostly white streaks running over the silver finish. To be honest, the lettering and logos – again, all in different fonts and font sizes – looks busy.
But the silvery finish that reduces glare saves the aesthetics of this shaft.
It seems that Fujikura really isn’t messing around. When you swing the Fujikura MCI, you can actually feel the steel and graphite materials working in tandem.
When you stand on the shaft, it keeps up with you. It can take a strong load and then on impact, you aren’t punished with a jolt up your arms.
Even on off-center strikes, it’s almost like you can feel the graphite at work, absorbing the shock.
So while the steel is stabilizing the shaft on your downswing, the graphite is giving you a soft, smooth feel.
Or at least, that’s what we think is happening. In truth we really don’t know.
But what we are certain of is that the Fujikura MCI really does offer the accuracy and stability of a steel shaft and the fluidity of a graphite shaft.
Why is the Fujikura MCI So Popular?
After testing the Fujikura MCI for ourselves we can honestly say that it lives up to the marketing hype.
And anyone else who games this shaft will likely tell you the same. In terms of feel, the Fujikura MCI is hard to beat.
We can see both graphite and steel iron shaft enthusiasts coming together in agreement over the Fujikura MCI.
