FUJIKURA MCI MILD WEDGE SHAFTS
“MCI SOLID / MILD” was developed with a new aim of choosing a shaft by the swing type of approach.
Available in 2 weights and 2 different spin characteristics, they offer the performance and feel similar to MCI irons. The SOLID option is the higher spinning option of the two and the MILD is the lower spinning option. In the new MCI (Metal Composite Irons), Metal Composite Technology was developed to combine the best attributes of steel and graphite into one revolutionary composite shaft. Increased hitting ability, even weight distribution, and individual length brings perfect flow of frequency and torque within your swing.
Approach swing is roughly divided into “SOLID” which has a sense of unity with hands to tip for people who want to move the head naturally by extending the shot. For people who want to hit with square impact with reduced face rotation, “MILD” features a distal rigidity and a gentle movement. Both of them also offer matching of “MCI” and “MCI Black”.
Background of Development
While MCI is recognized by many golfers for its performance, necessity of special wedge shaft according to a set of MCI shafts is called for. It seems to be a trend that wedge clubs are dealt with single body sales and its shaft is heavy steel, and many golfers use it as it is. Taking a look into the wedge shaft, there seems to be not consistent in bend rigidity and bend point. This time Fujikura introduce 2 kinds of model by bend point, one is SOLID and the other is MILD. You can choose according to your swing type or your desirable ball line.
In developing this product, Fujikura analyzed the wedge shaft currently on the market. As a result, Fujikura found that the physical properties such as hardness and kick point are not consistent. Therefore, due to a new point of view that the wedge shaft should be able to be selected by the swing type, development started while reflecting the voice of the two staff whose swing type is true opposite.
MCT® (Metal Composite Technology)
Carbon shafts become hand center of gravity compared to steel shafts, which affects the swing weight of the club. If you wind a lot of fibers at the tip to improve it, the rigidity will be high and there is a harmful effect of impairing feeling. With the development of “MCT”, it became possible to balance both the adjustment of the position of the center of gravity of the shaft and the high controllability by “smooth motion” which is a feature of the carbon shaft.

Swing type suitable for “MCI SOLID”
The shaft is in the middle of a movement with a sense of unity, from hand to tip. A type that uses a soft wrist and moves the head round to a shallow and picks up a ball at the face. This swing type golfer is characterized in that it takes little turf even in full shots. Approach is suitable for the image golfer who makes the ball softly landing on the green side and brings it to the pin.
Swing type suitable for “MCI MILD”
The shaft improves the tip rigidity and gently moves Nakamoto tone. Type locking the wrist in the state of hand fast and striking it to suppress the ball. This swing type golfer is characterized by taking a turf firmly by putting the head at a sharp angle with a full shot. Approach is suitable for golfer of image which strikes low flying ball low and stops at pin by spin.
