Mitsubishi MMT Shaft Review – Specs, Flex, Weight

Mitsubishi MMT Shaft

Whenever we get the opportunity to test a Mitsubishi shaft, we jump at it.

Why? Because we know Mitsubishi Chemical to make some of the most technologically advanced and innovative shafts on the market. So when it came time to test the Mitsubishi MMT shaft, we were all very excited.

As with nearly all Mitsubishi Chemical shafts, the Mitsubishi MMT comes loaded with tech that is quite honestly, over our heads.

But performance can’t be denied or mistaken. How did the Mitsubishi MMT shaft perform for us? Find out in the following review!

Mitsubishi MMT Shaft Overview

First of all, the Mitsubishi MMT is a composite shaft which means it is made with multiple materials.

In this case, Mitsubishi used layers of prepreg (a fibrous material that is infused with some type of resin to make it stronger) for the core.

For the outer layer, near the tip section, braided strands of 304 stainless steel are wrapped around the prepreg core.

The result is a shaft that is very reactive and smooth depending on your swing. For instance, we noticed that controlled swings felt very stable while full swings yielded more of an active feel.

Keep in mind that very powerful swingers aren’t the market for this shaft. It is a lightweight shaft. In fact the heaviest model of the Mitsubishi MMT weighs in at just 98 grams.

The Mitsubishi MMT was made for slow to moderate swing speed players. The tip section feels stable and on full swings, stiff. The butt section will also remain stable when you stand on this shaft.

The kick point is in the high-tip section and you can only feel it when you fully load the shaft.

We really liked the aesthetics of this shaft. The black and white color scheme works well with all kinds of irons and the lettering is clean and elegant.

The sharp lines of the lettering give way to a kind of “digital” camo, honeycomb grid that we can honestly take or leave – it kind of just clashes with the straight, crisp lines of the lettering.

Still, the digital noise on this shaft does very little to detract from its beauty.

Why is the Mitsubishi MMT So Popular?

People are starting to catch on to this shaft because it is a great one for slow to moderate swing speed players.

We really liked the fact that it works with the way you swing the club. It’s very reactive and responsive. The bend profile will adjust to how you swing the club.

How Does the Mitsubishi MMT Perform?

One of the things we really liked about this shaft was that it was very light; but the tip was still stiff.

That meant that we were able to increase our swing speed (thanks to the light weight) and keep control over the club head (thanks to the stiffer tip section.

Usually with shafts that are this light, it’s easy to lose control over the club head on full swings.

We should mention that we tested the Mitsubishi MMT in its 86 gram form. This weight met the needs of most of our swings.

It transitions smoothly even when you really load up on it. The release is smooth; but we did feel that it took some time to recover on really powerful swings.

This was evidenced by the wider divergence that we were seeing on 110% swings.

The launch was mid-high and spin rates were a bit above average. For example, we were getting spin rates in the 8,000 RPM range pretty consistently with our 7-iron.

The best performance aspect of this shaft is distance. Our 7-irons were going as far as our 6-irons and that kept up all the way through the set.

Mitsubishi MMT Shaft Specs

Specs Mitsubishi MMT
Available flexes Ladies, amateur, regular, stiff
Weight 48g – 98g
Tip .370”
Butt .578”, .593”, .586”, .588”, .592”, .590”, .600”
Length 42”

What Flexes Are Available? What Swing Speeds Do They Suit?

If you are swinging in the 60 MPH range, try ladies flex. The 70 MPH range players should check out amateur flex.

Regular would be best for 75-80 MPH swingers and stiff would likely work for players in the range of 80-85 MPH.

What Weights Are Available? What Swing Speeds Do They Suit?

For 75 MPH swing speeds and under, we would recommend 64g or any weight below that.

If you are swinging in the 80 MPH range, the 73g, 84g, 86g or 98g versions might work for you.

Why is it So Good?

The Mitsubishi MMT is particularly good for slow to moderate swing speed players.

It affords these kinds of players the smooth feel of a premium shaft in a light, manageable package.

Mitsubishi MMT First Impressions

Mitsubishi MMT Shaft1

The first thing that struck us was how light this shaft was.

Even at 86 grams, it feels like you can swing way outside of yourself with this shaft.

Key Features & Performance

The 304 stainless steel mesh weave seems to really stiffen up and stabilize the tip section which in turn, makes squaring up on powerful swings much more doable.

Mitsubishi MMT Irons Review

The Mitsubishi MMT shaft jives really well with game improvement irons – particularly large ones. You will actually gain control over the club head while still being allowed to swing faster.

Mitsubishi MMT Wedge Review

The extra spin this shaft naturally produces will work very well around the green. You can also manipulate the launch to be higher in your scoring wedges.

Mitsubishi MMT Pros & Cons


  • It looks cool
  • Smooth feel
  • Good club head control
  • Good distance
  • Great for slow to moderate swing speeds


  • Not the tightest shot dispersion
  • Definitely not for fast swingers

Who Should Buy it?

The Mitsubishi MMT performed as we expected such a light shaft to perform: it was fast, manageable and played long.

However, it should only be gamed by slow to moderate swing speed players with smooth tempos.
