Fujimoto Irons FT-1 MB-X
The MB-X is a one piece forged featuring a hollow section. The first of its kind for a full forged iron
Most players prefer forged heads over cast due to its feel and sound at impact as they have a greater consistency in their grain structure compared to cast heads. Although due to the intensive heat and pressure during the forging process, the finest forged heads will have distortions in their microstructure. Each billet is heated up to 1200°C and hammered into shape with 1000 ton of force. This is so similar to how the Japanese samurai swords are quenched in water to obtain their strength. Air cooling from such high temperature will also cause the grains to shrink and not reach its full potential. As such, we re-heat each head again to austenite state and annealed over 72 hours in straw ash and this extra step is how we create the dense, premium and smooth feel we our renowned for. We are committed to delivering the highest and purest quality with our unsurpassable craftsmanship.
