Rickie Fowler spotted with graphite iron shafts (Mitsubishi MMT) at The American Express

Published

When it comes to equipment stories, The American Express this week at PGA West is the gift that keeps on giving. Our newest scoop is that Rickie Fowler is taking after another Cobra staffer (aka “the big golfer”) and has made the switch to graphite shafts in his irons.

From the photos captured from his practice round on Wednesday, it appears that Rickie is using Mitsubishi Chemical’s MMT shafts in his custom and yet to be released Cobra Rev33 irons.

This is not the first time Rickie has switched iron shafts in the last 12 months. He was a long-time user of KBS C-Taper before switching to True Temper S400s, and now it appears he is looking at graphite as his next frontier.

This is a developing story and we are working hard on getting all the details and specs of this equipment change but for more pictures of Rickie from The American Express, check out the gallery below.

    I agree with Thomas . Graphite is far superior. It is lighter and can be made stiffer. The Nunchuk XI is the best of them all . The tips of high
    quality graphite shafts are also almost perfectly round in shape. Spining not necessary! Tips of metal shafts are oval in shape!

    We will all be in graphite iron shafts in a few years.

      Tried them years ago and didn’t like the lack of feel. With steel shafts in the 90 grm area I can’t see me switching, and I’ve been playing for 60 yrs. But if it works for some that’s fine by me.

    Seems his game fell way off when he put those iron heads in play, and never came back when he went back to his Amp pros. Hope he gets it together soon. Rickie is a pretty easy guy to root for.
