Yep MPT-5. Probably my favourite wedges have been Miura but they don't have the same milling on the clubface so I found better spin control with the Mizuno.

I've never liked Vokeys. Cleveland were ok and I would consider them again. Callaway I really hated for some reason, Ping and TM I've never gamed but they just look ugly so why bother? :)

I play a pair of MT5s - 52 and 56. I'll be honest though that I've never been as fond of these as the 54 Vokey they replaced. It could be an issue of having chosen the wrong shaft or bounce with these (or maybe my game slipped backwards), but it seems I get a higher percentage of low trajectory shots with my MT5s than I did the Vokey. The next set of wedges, I'll go through a full, open competition between Mizuno, Titleist, and Cleveland. I'll be honest though - my last testing I could barely tell the major brands apart. I don't find the same degree of difference in wedges that I do in longer irons. They're all pretty good.

I play a 3 wedge set of Cleveland Precision Forged RTX 2.0. Have 50°, 54°, 58°. They are ridiculously soft on contact and make touch shots around the green very much easier. I also find on full shots that being forged, there is not much drop off in feel and performance with my 50° wedge compared to my MP25 PW.

I would definitely recommend them. I found them better performing than my MP T5s.
Titleist 915d3 10.5° - Diamana Blue S+ 60g
Titleist 915fd 15.0° - Diamana Blue S+ 70g
Mizuno MP-H4 3i - DG S300
Mizuno MP-25 4-PW - DG S300
Cleveland 588 RTX2.0 Forged 50°/10°,54°/10°,58°/10°
Cleveland SmartSq FBCSM 35"

MP T-5 wedges, 52* and 58* lofts. My first Mizuno brand wedges and I enjoy playing them very much.
Compared to my previous wedges, which were Ping Tour followed by Vokey SM6, the Mizuno's have a much more forgiving sole design and pleasing impact sound.

Mizuno S5 for me 50*, 54*, and 60* changed to these from my older Mizuno MPR-12 wedges.

Started with original Cleveland 588 which were awesome,then progressed through the Cleveland .I think it was CG10 ,CG12 up to CG14.Then went Mizuno MPT10  and then another set of the same.Then tried Ping whatever they were.Then i tried a Callaway Mack Daddy 60 which i still use in the winter now,due to wider sole.Brought a full set of Cleveland Rotex 2.0,then got a 56 Vokey SM5 with a bit more bounce for the winter and have just started to build my new wedge set for the season with the purchase of a Mizuno  T7 50 in Blue which will be followed by a 54 and a 58 of the same.Don't think i missed any out?

I've used Mizuno wedges for a fair while now. Started with the Tour Style wedges about 14 years ago. After that it was the R Series wedges, these were superb, suited my eye and my swing perfectly. Still got a set of R12s in the bag which again were superb. Not had to try the T series yet ;)

after 2 years of using MP-T5 I did switch to S5. 50 / 54 / 58
Nearly the same nice feeling but a bit more consistancy.
The Cleveland wedges I was unsing before are also nice, but the blue S5 are awesome.
