Mitsubishi MMT Shaft Review – Specs, Flex, Weight
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.
