Carlsbad, CA – (August 01, 2019) – Mitsubishi Chemical announces MMT™ Taper Iron Series, featuring an all-new irons-centric technology that seeks to redefine the possibilities for feel and performance in a composite iron shaft.
“MMT™ stands for Metal Mesh Technology, an exciting, new innovation that expands the potential for composite iron shaft construction,” says Mark Gunther, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MCA GOLF. “It’s born from more than 30 years of composite shaft mastery at MCA – with the technology actually originating in our Archery Division – and opens up new avenues for our continued cutting-edge exploration.”
Designed to maximize the benefits of both composite and steel performance, MMT™ takes full advantage of the Mitsubishi end-to-end manufacturing approach. As layers of prepreg are stacked to build the shaft’s core, a section of unique Metal Mesh is integrated towards the tip. This Metal Mesh – made up of individually braided strands of 304 Stainless Steel – improves the density and stability of the shaft. Together this yields a finely tuned, highly responsive shaft that still provides the consistent launch and spin control needed for precise iron play.
The composite construction gives Mitsubishi engineers total control over the manufacturing process in a way that can’t be replicated with an all-steel product, precisely distributing the flex throughout the shaft. The integration of MMT™ adds weight and stabilizes the tip to give players the same ability to shape and control shots that a heavier steel shaft would provide.
“The response from players has been phenomenal,” says Gunther. “From the moment they pick it up and feel the weight and balance they realize MMT™ Tour is unlike any iron shaft they’ve ever tried. It feels solid, and you can consistently hit your window with a steeper angle of descent that helps tighten proximity to the hole.”
MMT™ Taper Irons shafts feature taper tip design to help fine-tune weight, balance-point, and kick-point for each iron, 3I though PW. This maximizes both the benefits of composite construction and the stability and density of the Metal Mesh, yielding greater torque, tighter spin, and more consistent launch. All influencing a straighter flying, steeper dropping ball flight when compared with other iron shafts.
MMT™ Taper Iron with Taper Tips will be available in six weights from 55g to 125g. They are ideal for any player who wants to experience the performance benefits of a composite iron shaft while still getting consistent launch and spin needed for proper distance control and touch.
MMT™ Taper Iron Series will be available through limited release September 1, 2019 at MCA GOLF authorized retailers and dealers nationwide, with a suggested retail price of $100 USD.

METAL MESH TECHNOLOGY (MMT™)
MMT™ combines the best of composite and steel in an iron shaft. A unique Metal Mesh – made from individually braided strands of 304 Stainless Steel – is integrated into the shaft’s prepreg layers towards the tip. This improves density and stability, while also allowing for thinner overall composite wall construction. Together this yields a finely tuned, highly responsive shaft that still provides the consistent launch and spin control needed for effective iron play.
