All,
I am looking to replace my project x 6.0 shafts in my MMC irons for a set of dynamic gold X100 shafts. As I’m looking around for a set of shaft pulls that fit my length I realized I do not know the shaft tip diameter. Anyone have any info on this?

99.9% chance they are .355tt. There aren't many irons, including utility.driving irons, that aren't .355tt

Minor correction.  Tons of SGI and GI irons are .370 parallel.

But otherwise, I agree.  I don't' think there has ever been an mizzy MP iron variant that was .370 (mp hybrids have been though).

A sprinkling of the MX's and JPX's have been parallel.

Sorry to open this back up but when buying new shafts ( replacing the project x 6.0) do I need to be concerned with swing weight etc. I’ve never actually changed shafts on irons and I am concerned this may mess up the swing weight and all that good stuff. Also I was fitted for the x100 shafts are the x100 shafts that much stiffer than the 6.0? Sorry for all the questions but I’m a bit nervous taking my first dive into customizations.

I was in your boat KaHodges a few months ago when I did my first reshaft.  You should be concerned about swingweight -- and I suggest purchasing a swingweight scale.  I bought the economy model from Golfworks (I think it is currently on sale).  You should also get some tip weights of various sizes (2g, 4g, 6g) -- and then some lead tape for fine tuning.  Other than that you need to of course be able to pull the old and glue in the new shafts.

I really like reshafting clubs now -- and find it kind of therapeutic and nice to work with my hands on my own tools.

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure if I want to risk it with these clubs. I got a great deal on the mp18 clubs. Only two have been removed from the plastic. The only issue is that the clubs may not fit my swing. The mizuno optimizer says I need the DG X100 and some others but really liked the DG with a swing speed of 94 and some change with the 6 Iron they use. My current clubs are xp95 in stiff so even the project x 6.0 is a huge step up from what I’ve been playing with. With that said though I plan to keep these clubs until they can’t play anymore so I want to get them right.

Most likely I will take them somewhere to get the reshafting but I’m not sure if they will take the time to do it right. I mean I don’t think there are many options where I live so I want to inform myself as much as possible.

Well - you need to do the research, but I would not call it "hard" to reshaft a set and swingweight it properly.  But you should read up and watch some videos to make sure you are comfortable with it.

You can always find an experienced club builder to do it for you as you note.

My recommendation is to look for an expert clubmaker.  At the end it pays itself. My favorite is member gotblades.

That may not be a bad idea. My only worry there would be cost. I’m sure it would be worth it in the end but I do not have tons of cash laying around to spend right now. Any clue what it would cost to have it done the right way?
